Happy Birthday to Paddington Bear!


Our loveable furry friend Paddington celebrates his birthday today!

The polite bear from Peru was adopted by the Brown family after turning up at London’s Paddington Station with just his old hat, battered suitcase and small duffle coat. He’s famous for his love of marmalade and for always getting into lots of trouble no matter how hard he tries not to!

We asked Paddington Bear how old he is but he wouldn’t tell us!

Later this year Paddington stars in his very own movie! Check out the trailer here:

To celebrate his birthday, Action Medical Research are running a quiz all about Paddington and the charity.

120172Get all the questions right and you’ll be entered into a prize draw to win a set of Paddington Bear books signed by their author, Michael Bond! To enter the quiz click here.

Paddington has raised thousands of pounds for Action over the last forty years to help fund medical research for sick babies and children.

We think after all of that he definitely deserves a big birthday cake. Hopefully he can try and find one with marmalade in it!
