First up, to celebrate the brand’s 40th anniversary, there is a trio of Care Bears accessories. This collection includes a Rainbow Handle Crossbody bag ($40), a Care-A-Lot Castle Mini Backpack ($80), and a matching Care-A-Lot Castle wallet ($40). All three bags feature a light-blue background decorated with a variety of Care Bears characters and related Care Bears imagery — plenty of hearts and rainbows! Inside, all three accessories feature a lining decorated with a Care Bears pattern that incorporates the 40th-anniversary logo.
Another pop-culture classic that’s celebrating its 40th anniversary this year is E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. Loungefly has two upcoming accessories inspired by the 1982 Spielberg classic: a glow-in-the-dark mini backpack ($80) and a flap wallet ($40). Both of these accessories feature the titular alien holding the flower pot. The backpack also features ET’s iconic, glowing finger (which glows in the dark); the silhouette of Elliott’s bike in front of the moon; and the phrase “I’ll be right here” on the back.
Finally, for the ’90s kids, there is an upcoming set of Blues Clues accessories. They include a mini backpack that looks like Blue ($80) and a zip-around wallet designed to look like the Handy Dandy Notebook ($40). The backpack’s interior lining has a pattern made up of imagery from the original show.
All of these items will be available to preorder in the coming months. Fans can check out the Care Bears and E.T. designs now at loungefly.com using the links below and sign up to be notified by email when these accessories become available to purchase.
