A STICKY PAWED VISITOR – WIN A GIANT PADDINGTON SOFT TOY
In our house, there’s a divide between the three boys. Those who love marmalade…and those who do not. Being on the marmalade-loving boys team by himself, Hero has a furry hero of his own. He wears red boots, has a little suitcase and comes from deepest, darkest Peru. Paddington Bear.
Paddington Bear arrived on our snowy doorstep this morning courtesy of a very brave Parcelforce Team who told me they were something a little more colourful than “brave” for coming out into our town today as we have more snow than we’ve seen in Hampshire in nearly 20 years. I couldn’t remember that we’d been lucky enough to be chosen to home Paddington and so when we opened the box it was a huge surprise for us – and Hero’s face lit up as he ran over to hug him.
Paddington is nearly as big as Beans. He’s a really big, soft, huggly, snuggly bear and Hero is in love. I suggested that Granny might love him, as Granny has a very old Paddington from years ago – one which every one of her children and grandchildren [me included as a tiddler] have worn the real wellies of. At this point, Hero grabbed hold of Paddington’s hand as they sat on the sofa together and told us that Paddington really [weeeeelly] wants to stay with him. They then spent the next twenty minutes playing sharks on the carpet together. Paddington stays, sorry Granny.
Our newest furry friend has a felt hat and coat with embroidered buckles which are sewn to his body, and embroidered features. He’s well made and very soft. We do love him, and he’s staying – but we have one to give away too! See the bottom of the post for details! We made the mistake of telling Hero that we were giving a Paddington away…he thought we meant *his* Paddington…
That this is a toy which is perfect for the smaller members of the family – there are no small parts and he’s extra soft and light.
He had wellingtons and a little case, Paddington doesn’t seem the same without them!
Hero adores Paddington and he’s taken up half of my bed since the day he arrived. If you have any Paddington fans, enter our competition below for a chance to win a Paddington of your own from Rainbow Designs!
How about q lovely fresh side salad to go with those Marmalade sandwiches
I really think Paddington needs some kind of greens! Thank you for entering! 🙂
I think he could do with a tasty poached salmon steak and some tasty veg – I hear bears like salmon!
Bears really do like salmon – and if he shares with me, even better! Thank you for entering!
I think he would rather enjoy a bowl of tomato soup with cream cheese sandwiches to dip in 🙂
how about a nice slice of marmalade polenta cake! i made a honey version so why not marmalade. x

You can’t take away Paddington’s marmalade sandwich but maybe he could eat a piece of fruit or a carrot with it and clean his teeth afterwards.
Oily fish to keep him healthy
A Bacon Butty
Maybe have a bit of jam mixed in there too to improve it.
Nothing wrong with a marmelade sandwhich out in some fruit and veg sticks to get some vitamins though!
I think Paddington should have a strawberry yoghurt

What about chocolate spread sandwiches
Get with the times…Coronation chicken sandwiches are the way forward

Tuna, sweetcorn and pasta
Roasted vegetable cous cous and a blueberry muffin.

A mixed salad of cactus, bamboo hearts, pine nuts and fruit. Dessert would be sugarcane and honey.
I think Paddington needs some more protein and greens in his diet, to help keep his energy up in all his adventures and mischief causing! I think he needs a tuna and spinach sandwich…although I have a suspicion he wouldn’t like that!
Since marmalade is made with fruit it must count as 1 of his 5 a day
I delicious chicken salad
A bacon sandwich and a piece of marmalade cake.

I used to have a giant Paddington when I was a kid. I LOVED him, I used to wear his wellies :p I was obsessed with him when I was young, I used to give people I wasn’t happy with a ‘Paddington Bear Stare’…

I think peanut butter sandwiches or even a cheese salad sandwich would be a nice change.
I think he should try strawberry jam instead.
Definitely a nice healthy salad combined with some fruit ,Paddington needs better nutrition!
He needs some more protein to keep him full for longer. A nice boiled egg with toast soldier’s would be perfect. He could always have a bit of marmalade with the toast if he can’t live without it!
I will recommend Paddington sandwiches with Lemon curd.
