EAN 690709 Size: 4.5 inches (12cm) Age Group: Not a toy. Intended for adult collectors
celebrate the marmalade-loving bear’s 60th anniversary, this Paddington Bear design pays homage to Peggy Fortnum, the first
illustrator to draw Paddington Bear for Michael Bond’s children’s books.
She was commissioned to illustrate the first volume of adventures, A
Bear Called Paddington, in black and white line drawings, in 1958. She
subsequently worked on the next eight Paddington books. Her
illustrations made the idea of a bear from Peru arriving at Paddington
station with a suitcase and being adopted by an ordinary family real and
believable. Following the wildly popular 60th anniversary edition,
Steiff is delighted to offer this tiny Paddington who’s only 12 cm tall,
but enormous in character. With a red ribbon attached, he can become
your constant companion wherever you may be. He can even decorate your
Christmas tree. He is exclusive to the UK, Ireland and USA and is made
in a limited edition of 1,958 pieces.
