Bashful Heart is usually short on words, but always tries to let his actions shine through. After all, it's hard to be bold when you're dubbed "the shyest of all Care Bears". But even though he's not the kind of bear that steers a conversation, or even starts one, you can always count on him to lend an ear or helping paw to those in need. So while he may not stand out in a crowd, he's still a valuable member of the Care Bear Family.

German: Schüchternheitsbärchi ("Shyness Bear")
Bashful Heart first appeared as a plush toy during the Care Bears 2000's relaunch toyline, and has since been released as a 7" plush, 10" plush, beanbag plush, and 4" Easter egg hideaway plush.
His only appearance outside of toys has been the 2006 Care Bears Friendship Club children's book One Friend at a Time by Scholastic.
