Exclusive Cuddly Paddington Bear.
Who is Paddington?
He's the friendly stowaway bear from Peru, who now lives in London.
Although Paddington now lives in London, England, he originally came from Peru, where he was brought up by his Aunt Lucy. When Aunt Lucy went to live in the Home for Retired Bears in Lima, she decided to send Paddington to live in England. After teaching him to speak perfect English, Aunt Lucy arranged for him to stow away in a ship’s lifeboat.
Eventually, Paddington arrived at Paddington Station in London, where he was found by Mr and Mrs Brown. He was sitting on a small suitcase wearing nothing but an old bush hat and a label around his neck with the words ‘Please Look After This Bear. Thank You.’ Unable to resist such a simple request, Mr and Mrs Brown took Paddington home to live with them at 32 Windsor Gardens in London, along with their two children, Jonathan and Judy and their housekeeper, Mrs Bird.
When Paddington first went to live with the Browns they bought him a blue duffle coat which he wears most of the time; it has a hood and is fastened with wooden toggles. Paddington's old bush hat was handed down to him by his uncle in Peru and he is rarely seen without this or his battered, brown, leather suitcase.
His suitcase has his initials P.B. written on the side and a secret compartment in which he keeps all his important things. Paddington sometimes completes his outfit with a pair of Wellington boots.
Paddington is famous for his love of marmalade and he is particularly fond of it in sandwiches. He always carries a jar in his suitcase and he usually has a marmalade sandwich tucked under his hat 'in case of emergencies'.
