About Paddington Bear: Paddington Bear is a fictional bear which appears in children’s books, and first appeared on 13 October 1958. Paddington has appeared in over 20 books, with the fabulous team of author Michael Bond and Illustrator Peggy Fortnum and several other artists. Paddington is portrayed as a friendly and loveable bear, a kind hearted soul who carries an old hat on his head, a tattered old suitcase, long duffle coat and he loves marmalade! Paddington although looks like a bear, he acts much like a kind and polite person and regularly calls people by Mr, Mrs and Miss. He tries his absolute best to be nice to everybody and always tries to get things right, the comedy aspect to his stories is when Paddington gets himself into trouble unintentionally. 

Paddington Bear books are currently published by HarperCollins, and have been releasing memorable story books for children and babies around the world. Paddington is well mannered and can be seen in films, teaching kids how to be courteous and considerate. The character was actually based on a toy teddy bear which he saw in Selfridges, he bought this for his wife. It is also named as the best children’s novel of the year by UK Book Trade Journal and Books and Bookmen. In the first story, Paddington has a note on his coat that said Please look after this bear. Thank you. This was actually inspired by child fugitives that had appeared in the news during the war. Since its release 60 years ago, so far there have been more than 35 million books sold globally and also made into 40 languages. 

In 2018, the 50p Paddington coin was released and was used in Britain. In 1994, Paddington Bear was also used as the selected soft toy by Britain tunellers to pass through as the first item when the Channel Tunnel was completed. Paddington Bear spends most of his time on Portobello road situated in London, and is extremely nice to the neighbours there but when faced with rude people, he shows a menacing glare which makes people uncomfortable.
