What is Care Bears?
Care Bears was a popular franchise of the 90s that included video games, books, toys, and classic animated TV series. Cloudco Entertainment, the global distributor of Care Bears, partnered with The Sandbox in 2020 to bring the favorite animated characters to The Sandbox metaverse. Cloudco also received large digital LANDS on The Sandbox for Care-a-Lot kingdom exclusively for Care Bears fans.
The Sandbox also has the right to produce and distribute Care Bears-inspired digital in-game assets created by game developers. This year, a game jam was held for the same in which players created assets related to Care Bears and won $SAND tokens as rewards. In addition, players can explore the Care-a lot world inside The Sandbox and use their Avatars to meet, chat and interact with other players, visit attractions and buildings and play mini-games.
