Wearing his iconic blue duffle coat (which can be removed) and red hat, Paddington says five phrases. Guaranteed to delight little ones, with a simple press of his tummy he will say any one of his 5 phrases “Hello My Name is Paddington”,”I’m from darkest Peru”, “I’m a very rare sort of bear”, “Marmalade sandwiches are my favourite”, It’s nice being a bear especially a bear called Paddington.
