PLEASE LOOK AFTER THIS BEAR!

Paddington Bear is a British institution and the bear to watch in 2014. As a child of the late 70’s and early 80’s watching the accident prone bear (who was found abandoned at Paddington Station in London by the Brown family) on TV was a teatime treat.

I even had a bear as big as me with his own little suitcase and polystyrene marmalade sandwich (although, no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t fit into his blue felt duffel, yellow wellingtons and old battered hat!)

So, what a joy that BabyGap are launching a limited-edition collection in his honour with prints and patterns inspired by this classic bear from darkest Peru.

After, the success of the Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter range last year – Gap has used this winning book-meets-fashion formula to create a beautiful selection of clothing and gifts for girls and boys from newborn – 24 months.

Inspired by the original illustrations of Peggy Fortum and 1950’s books by Michael Bond the line features imaginative pieces like multi-colour sweatshirts, printed baby grows and tee’s, cosy knits, faded denims and warm sherpa boots – and, of course his classic duffel and wellingtons.

Launching this Monday 27th January – so, get ready to shop as the collection is only available for a short time in-store, online and in a special pop-up shop at Paddington Station no less.

I can’t wait to grab some pieces for Miss Marnie (especially the cape and spotted blouse!) Watch the Baby Gap video here.

* Also, look out for the limited-edition Paddington Bear stamp issued by the post office as part of a set of well loved children’s characters from the last 60 years and the debut film Paddington: The Movie hitting cinemas in November.
