Dream Bears - Remco (1984)

(There seems to be some sort of bug with the site that sets off virus alert. My anti-virus cleans up whatever it is).

They have a scan of the back of the card as well. It says that the trademark is owned by Mel Appel but that Remco is a licensed user? I'm not sure why American Greetings is mentioned. (Were they trying to cover their butt over the similarity to Care Bears?)



Also, in the 80s and 90s Remco was technically owned by Azrak-Hamway International, Inc. (AHI), Now Jakks Pacific owns it.

Anyways, another lesser known but fairly common toy. :)

(I hope I'm not getting annoying with all this research I'm doing with these companies that make all the knock-offs! It's just that I'm still diligently searching for my beloved Remco makeup doll and want to post the interesting stuff I find in the meantime!)

I couldn't click on the first link my anti virus kept denying it.

Yeah, poseableplace.com makes my computer mad too. I just block whatever it is that my virus scan doesn't like. I think it's just a bad script, though. Not an intentional malicious virus.

I think the mention of American Greetings is because they wrote on the front that the clothes fit Care Bears as well.

Oh! You're right! I had just been looking at the packaging for the bears themselves. The outfits do mention what other toys the clothes will fit...

Yeah the Dream Bear clothes fit Care Bear poseables as well as some of the large Maple Town/flocked animal knockoffs.

I have some of the clothes of anybody wants to see them. They are loose though.

Hey guys, this is Angel Bear from Poseableplace. I haven't touched that site in years. I will get my husband to look into the virus and hopefully it wont kill anyone else's computer.

I do have a complete set of Dream Bears items. I can get pictures.
