Paddington Bear by Merrythought - 30cm


Catalogue number: PB12CL

As Merrythought approaches their 95th anniversary in 2025, they have brought to life this gorgeous Paddington bear based on the famous original drawings by Peggy Fortnum.

This absolutely wonderful British-made Paddington is truly timeless and is bursting with character, as you would expect! Crafted from a gorgeous honey blonde mohair plush and soft cotton velvet, Paddington wears his iconic woollen red felt hat and navy blue duffle coat, which has wooden toggles. His neatly hand-stitched nose and warm smile add to his warm and friendly demeanour -making him a life-long friend and a future heirloom to pass down to the next generation!

Each Paddington is individually consecutively numbered as part of his special open edition and he is presented in an exclusive deluxe Merrythought box with his certificate.
