moving fast and bright as a firefly

There was a time in my life, say between the ages of about 4 and 13 ahem 9, when cartoons were pretty much the only things that mattered to me. The Care Bears, My Little Pony, a lesser known cartoon called Maxi's World about a teenager with her own chat show, they were what I lived for. Saturday mornings were a time for scarily bright colours, ridiculous theme songs and fighting with my little sister over the remote control.

Bearing this in mind (pardon the pun), I couldn't help but get a bit excited when Bargainista Fashionista blogged about these Care Bear tees from Uniqlo;

I hardly ever wear t-shirts, but I can never resist a bit of 90s nostalgia and at just £7.99 each, these are too cute to miss out on. There's 10 designs in all and each one comes in two different colour options. The Tender Heart one at the top of this post is my favourite - I had a teddy of Tender Heart when I was little, he was wonderful.

Uniqlo is a brand I pretty much never bother with, but after investigating the Care Bears tees, I had a little browse around the rest of the site and I'm now really liking it. It's a shame there only seems to be stores in the London area; Uniqlo, listen up, THE PEOPLE OF LIVERPOOL WOULD LOVE YOU!

For some annoying reason, all of the Care Bears videos on Youtube have had embedding disabled - grrrr! However, if you click on the image above, it'll take you to a video of the theme song, which is brilliant and features the wonderfully optimistic lyric - "if you can dream, just send a wish out in the dark" - making it worth a listen, even if you're not familiar with the little balls of fluff.


  1. Oh my god those are AMAZING. I have to get my best friend one, she's obsessed with the Care Bears! xx

  2. These are awesome, thanks for sharing, I must buy one! x
