Wish Bear is one of the ten original Care Bears who first appeared on American Greetings greeting cards in late 1982. She helps make wishes come true, and although they don't always come true, making wishes and working hard to help make them come true is still fun. Her fur color is turquoise; and her symbol is a yellow smiling shooting star. In the TV series Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot, she wears a star-shaped hair clip.
Twinkers, a wishing star, is her best friend (whom she met as a cub) who appears in Care Bears: Journey to Joke-a-lot as well as in The Care Bears' Big Wish Movie where Wish Bear is the main character.
