Funshine Bear stars in a more mild movie then the 80s Care Bears

Most kids 5+ will enjoy though it's not very Care Bears themed. Long scenes of new, non-Bears talking will probably bore most. Some kids think the ride scene is scary, just assure your child it's a silly ride and Funshine will be okay. Good messages are accepting others who are different, knowing when not to joke, and sticking up for what you believe is right.
