Thank you to The Weinstein Company and Chuck E. Cheese for sponsoring this post.
When the Paddington Bear line was available at GAP about a year ago, I couldn’t resist buying several mix and match pieces for my youngest son. I’ve always loved this sweet children’s book character and his obsession with marmalade. And with such sweet sayings as , “Free Hugs” and “He’s always up to something,” on the clothing, it was a perfect fit for my little guy. Now I am looking forward to seeing the PADDINGTON movie, his new feature film coming to theaters on January 16th.
From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.
Starring Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, and Nicole Kidman.
I mean seriously, just look at that face? That hat? Irresistible.
If you also adore this lovable bear, I’ve got some PADDINGTON coloring pages and activity sheets available for download to keep your kids busy until the film is released!
