Paddington Bear is the famous character featured in more than twenty books written by Michael Bond that were inspired by a teddy bear that he brought his wife on Christmas Eve in 1956. The very first Paddington bear soft toy was designed in the UK by Shirley Clarkson of Gabrielle Designs. She made it as a present for her children, Joanna and Jeremy Clarkson (of Top Gear fame).
This adorable example of Paddington Bear is inspired by the silver screen realisation of the iconic character and is limited to 2,000 pieces exclusive to the UK and the United States. Made from the finest chestnut brown mohair, he follows on from a phenomenally popular series of predecessors created by Steiff. He wears his classic red wide brimmed hat and detailed felt duffle coat. He is designed as an ornament and can be suspended by his attached ribbon, or can accompany you on your own adventures!
The Paddington Bear Ornament comes with his numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve.
