Since Paddington Bears first appearance in 1958, the polite bear from Peru with his battered old hat, suitcase and duffle coat has become a classic character in English children’s literature.
Paddington Bear is always polite – addressing people as Mr, Mrs and Miss – and well- meaning, though he inflicts hard stares on those who incur his disapproval. He likes marmalade sandwiches and cocoa, and has an endless capacity for unwittingly getting into trouble, but things always turn out alright in the end.
The Paddington books have been translated into more than 40 languages, sold in more than 100 countries, with total sales to date of over 35 million copies worldwide. Over 265 licenses, making thousands of different products across the United Kingdom, Europe, United States, Southeast Asia, Japan, Australia and South Africa all benefit from the universal recognition of Paddington Bear.
