Care bears sewing patterns

I wanted to show my care bear cousins patterns with everyone. It started when i came across lionheart on ebay who unfortunately was in such a bidding war that i was not able to buy him. No matter it started a mission since i remember the care bears from my own childhood and while the bears were okay i really liked the cousins! Plus i figured they would be a great way to understanding pattern making on different animals.There are 10 and some took weeks to find while others took no time at all! I don't know yet if ill try to collect all the bears ive had  a hard time figuring out exactly how many their are. Do any of you  collect specific patterns? Id love to hear about any kind of collection youve got and how you got started. Also if you are looking for a specific pattern and would like me to keep an eye out let me know id be glad to help!
