In 1984 Did You Want Care Bears Banks? The Sears Wishbook Was The Place To Go!

Care Bears - Banks - Sears 1984
The Sears Wishbooks that I would pore over almost every waking hour, laying on my stomach in the living room of my Grandparent’s house always offered items that begged to be added to the Christmas list…even if they weren’t toys. Like these awesome Care Bear banks and photo frames from the 1984 Sears Wishbook, though granted I would possibly have an issue today from drinking out of the open head of Funshine Bear.

  1. I like the banks! My friend picked up a Care Bears Braveheart Lion bank for me a couple years back, nice to see all the other neat ones available!

  2. I’m the type of guy that would have probably appreciated my Family giving me a Birthday Bear picture frame for Prom or Graduation…which is ‘kind of’ what it looks like in the photo from the Wishbook. Ha, ha.
