GUND PADDINGTON IN BLUE COAT
Paddington Bear was first introduced as a character in a book first published in 1958 by Micheal Bond. ” A Bear Called Paddington”.
Mr and Mrs Brown found him sitting on a battered old suitcase on Paddington Station with a label around his neck simply stating ” Please look after this bear”. Unable to resist such a simple request Mrs Brown took him home to live with her children Johnathon and Judy at 32 Windsor gardens. And so the legend of Paddington began from the deepest darkest jungles of Peru to the busy streets of London. He has now become a favourite of children of all ages and over the past half a century many a child has drawn comfort or inspiration from a Paddington Bear.
