The bears first appeared on American Greetings cards in contemporary with Strawberry Shortcake. These little guys and gals were a hit right out of the gate when Kenner launched a toy line two years later. They had a lot of animated screentime for the rest of the decade: two specials, a TV series , and three theatrical films over The franchise died in the 90s after a very brief and unsuccessful redesign ; compare My Little Pony.
The franchise returned after the turn of the millenium. In most of the films and cartoons, they are pitted against various "heartless" villains who want to make the world safe for evil, often by removing people's ability to care for others When the chips are down, that's when the Care-Bear Stare comes into play.

They're one of the most spoofed of The '80s toy lines because of their overly sugary reputation — which is not wholly deserved when one takes some of their villains and plotlines into account. On the other hand, they're still quite popular. In , the characters were relaunched with a toy revival and two direct-to-video animated films. This possibly occurred because Hasbro neglected the franchise and ended up losing the master license rights to a company called Just Play.
Initially announced for , the show was rushed to production and premiered with six episodes in November instead. The series is in many ways a continuation of Welcome to Care-a-Lot. It features the same visual style and is clearly set in the same continuity, but adds the Care Bear Cousins and features a much larger role for the young cub character of Wonderheart Bear that was introduced in Welcome to Care-a-Lot. Traditional British poem. Remember, remember, the 5th of November. Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, 'Twas his intent. To blow up the King and the Parliament. Three score barrels of powder below, Poor old England to overthrow.
By God's providence he was catch'd, With a dark lantern and burning match Holloa boys, Holloa boys, let the bells ring Holloa boys, Holloa boys, God save the King! Hip hip Hoorah! A penny loaf to feed ol' Pope, A farthing cheese to choke him. A pint of beer to rinse it down, A faggot of sticks to burn him. Burn him in a tub of tar. Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head, Then we'll say: ol' Pope is dead. Labels: Dad , family , Guy Fawkes , weekend chat. Saturday, 2 November November days.. There is definitely something about Autumn that has me reaching for my knitting needles My latest teddy bear Violet, is modelling a pretty jacket I knitted earlier this week. I have a stash of vintage dolly knitting patterns which I collected over the years, so I adjusted the measurements of this sweet vintage knit to fit my teddy girl's slightly more curvaceous proportions.
Happily, Violet was adopted from my website a couple of days ago and is now on her way to meet her new owner in the US. It is such a gloomy day here in Kent. I can hear heavy rain hammering against my windows and the wind howling around the back of the house, so once I have braved the great outdoors with my dogs not looking forward to that today! I plan to light candles and cosy up in front of the tv with my knitting needles, as I have a new teddy bear to dress.
I promise to share him with you just as soon as this miserable rain stops and I can take him into the garden to photograph on my little bench In the meantime, sending you soggy grey hugs, from a rain soaked UK!

On Sunday afternoon, we set off in the car, welly booted and with cameras primed, in preparation for our autumnal deer spotting outing at Knole Park in Sevenoaks.
However, our plans for a fun family tromp were thwarted, as for some reason unbeknownst to us, Knole Park had closed its rather grand gates to the public. Determined not to give up on our planned family walk, we drove past the park opening and rang my son and his wife to see if they had any bright ideas So rather than deer hunting, we spent a fun afternoon exploring beautiful gardens and hunting for pumpkins instead! We thoroughly enjoyed the dog-friendly on leads please gardens and were made very welcome.
The gardens were a magical blend of the formal and the more mysterious In fact we had such a fun afternoon at Riverhill, we very quickly forgot all about our original plan to visit Knole!

I fell in love with this Harris Tweed the second I saw it and just knew it would make a stunning Tweedy Ted Up until now, my previous Tweedy Teds have had classic three piece heads not including their ears! I have designed centre seam mohair bears over the years as they provide scope for shaping - for example, if you design a gentle curve into the head gusset, it offers more depth and creates a wonderful dome shaped head. I thought it would be fun to translate that lovely dome into my Tweedy Ted and happily, this design worked really well.
If you would like to know more about Mackenzie Tweedy, please pop over to my website. It is the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness and I am loving the daily walks I take with Polly and Betty, my Golden Retrievers. The countryside is rich with berries and the leaves are beginning to turn beautiful shades of orange and gold.
It is a time of year I have always found especially inspiring They really are such a pair of muck magnets. These are a few photos I snapped on our walk through Oaken Wood last weekend Needless to say I spent the rest of the afternoon armed with shampoo, towels and a hose! Whatever the season where you live, I hope you too are enjoying all it has to offer!

I usually use my Canon Eos camera to take bear pics, but I don't mind admitting this fellow, a commission finished last week, caused me a few photographic headaches! I gave up trying with my posh SLR camera and resorted to my mobile phone camera instead. I live and learn!
http://vipauto93.ru/profiles/note/come-faccio-a-clonare-un-cellulare.php Not only are black teddy bears notoriously difficult to photograph, they are also a real challenge to make. Marking a pattern on black mohair is pointless if done with my preferred lead pencil, so I need to use a fine gold Sharpie pen instead. Cutting out, trimming and sewing black mohair with black thread is also very tiring on my eyes, so I only ever work on black mohair by my workroom window, in bright natural daylight. So, if you have ever wondered why black artist teddy bears are almost as rare as hen's teeth, it is because black mohair is probably one of the most challenging fabrics for a teddy bear maker to work with!
Black Magic was created in I have been trying to find photographs of some of the black bears I have created over the past 25 years, but unfortunately it is proving a rather thankless task.
