5 Paddington Facts You Should Know…

Paddington is actually from Peru – he even has a Peruvian name: Pastuzo – although when he tries to say it comes out in bear, and thus sounds like a series of growling noises.


Paddington is called Paddington because he was found at Paddington Station with a note around his neck saying: “Please look after this bear.” The note was written by his beloved Aunt Lucy who he still regularly writes to.


It was Aunt Lucy that gave Paddington his love of marmalade; the flavors remind him of home.



Aunt Lucy currently lives in the Home For Retired Bears in Lima, Peru, while Paddington lives with the Browns in London.




Paddington is lucky to have two homes, two families, and plenty of sandwiches!
