The cuddly world of Care Bears is celebrating its 40th anniversary with the launch of an NFT collection called ‘Care Bears Forever’.
Coming with the tagline ‘Lets turn this Bear Market into a Care Bears,’ the collection consists of 10,000 NFTs which are based around 10 of the following Care Bears characters: Cheer Bear, Grump Bear, Funshine Bear, Good Luck Bear, Love-a-Lot Bear, Bedtime Bear, Best Friend Bear, Tenderheart Bear, Birthday Bear and Wish Bear. Each will sport a PFP aesthetic which includes the original Care Bears artwork which was first crafted by American artist Elena Kucharik back in 1981.
The collection, which will drop on August 4th, will also entail a mystery prize mechanism whereby holders will have the chance to win reward ‘crates’ by submitting their NFTs into a TBA challenge.
On the tech end of things, Care Bears has consulted the expertise of NFT platform RECUR, the same company in which Nickelodeon, Star Trek, and Hello Kitty are working with in their own Web3 efforts.
