Why was the new Share Bear's tummy symbol changed?
When American Greetings artists and writers began working on the new Care Bears they reviewed each bear to consider any changes that might help make it more appropriate for this day and age. They felt that the twin lollipops better illustrate the concept of sharing to small children. Also, because people today tend to be more sensitive about health concerns, it was felt that the two lollipops set a better example for sharing than the sundae with two straws symbol.
