|Why was the new Share Bear's tummy symbol
|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.
