The Real Paddington Bear Located at London’s Paddington Station.

Paddington Bear Info from Wikipedia
The children’s book character Paddington Bear was named after Paddington station. In the books, by Michael Bond, he is found at the station in London, coming from “deepest, darkest Peru” and with a note attached to his coat reading “please look after this bear, thank you”. In real life there is a statue of Paddington Bear in the station concourse, and a small shop full of Paddington Bear paraphernalia in the main station area. This merchandise can also be found at Hamley’s Toy Store and at Harrod’s. This statue is a representation of the original Paddington drawings by Peggy Fortnum.

    This is just great, Don. This shows how much you love your bears in your country. I have several that were made in England and they are among my favorites.

  • Hi Marjorie, We really do love our Teddy Bears in the UK, Paddington and his story is amongst the best loved, alongside Winne the Poooh of course:-) LOL. Thanks for viewing and commenting my friend. Regards, Don.

    I love it, love it. love it !! Has it been there for a long time ? I can not believe that I have missed it everytime I was there !!!

  • Thanks for that Sandra, I think they moved the statue from it’s original position, but now he’s in the foyer where people can sit and relax with him. I had to ask an American tourist, polightly of course, if you would kindly move out of the way so I could take a picture of lovely old Paddington. I didn’t have much time as my son Joe’s train was leaving, but I’ll go back and grab a few more next week. Hopefully next time you’re in London you’ll find him. Thanks again, Don.

Don’t like Vegemite so much though, apologies to all my Aussie mates (",) Great stuff Don… where’s his coat though ?

  • Yep, the real deal:-) LOL Thanks once again Wayne, and just because you love Marmite instead of that aweful imitation Vegimite, here’s the amazing real deal number 2:-)
