In fact some collections have sold for more than $10,000 - with other single Care Bears fetching hundreds and hundreds of dollars.
So what are the most valuable Care Bears?
Top of the list is the super rare Nobleheart Horse Care Bears Cousin - a highly-coveted vintage piece which can fetch around the $800 mark.
Also in demand is the Proudheart Cat Care Bear Cousin, which is worth more than $500.
The Surprise Care Bear - in the pale blue colour - is also in high demand, with its soft blue fur and jack-in-the-box motif on the front. The 1984 Goodluck Care Bear - with a four-leaf clover on the front - is also sought after by collectors.
Of course Care Bears in their original boxes receive more money, as do ones that are clean and with no damage. So what are you waiting for?! Search your toy cupboard - and then hit up eBay, Doopydoo’s or Care Bear Collectors. Good luck!
