Paddington™, the bear from Darkest Peru, first appeared in the book A Bear Called Paddington, published in 1958 and created by Michael Bond (1926–2017). Since then, Paddington has touched hearts across the globe, and 13 October 2018 marks a special milestone – 60 years since the first Paddington story was published.
After a long voyage from Peru, Paddington was found at Paddington station, London, by the Brown family, wearing nothing but an old bush hat and a label around his neck with the words, “Please look after this bear. Thank you”. Paddington now resides at 32 Windsor Gardens, with the Brown family. Paddington’s love of marmalade is legendary, and he usually has a marmalade sandwich tucked under his hat, in case of “emergencies”. Along with his bush hat, Paddington is usually dressed in his blue duffle coat, bought for him by the Browns. Sometimes he completes his outfit with a pair of Wellington boots, along with his trusty suitcase (usually containing a jar of marmalade). Paddington is known for his polite, well-intentioned and trusting nature, albeit these traits can often get him into trouble. Fortunately for Paddington everything seems to turn out alright in the end!
There are more than 150 Paddington book titles, published in 40 different languages. Paddington has continued to be one of the most beloved characters in the world across many generations.
Happy 60th anniversary, Paddington Bear!
