About Paddington
For over 60 years, British-born writer Michael Bond has delighted children and families all over the world with his stories about Paddington, the bear from Darkest Peru famous for his love of marmalade. Paddington is popular with both children and adults who feel affection and warmth towards him. The kindness and humour in the Paddington stories is the cornerstone to their enduring popularity.

Paddington’s adventures have been adapted several times for television and at the end of 2014 Paddington made his debut onto the big screen, a further film Paddington 2 followed in 2017 with a third in the works. The movies were produced by Studiocanal, part of the international content and media group Vivendi. In 2020, a brand-new Paddington TV series designed for a pre-school audience, The Adventures of Paddington launched on Nickelodeon, introducing the brand to a whole new set of fans.

Update (8/1/21) - From the January 2021 issue of Toy World Magazine:

The Adventures of Paddington

Off the back of the successful launch of the Paddington television series both on Nickelodeon and Milkshake in 2020, new TV product ranges have launched which will engage a whole new generation of fans discovering Paddington for the first time through his adventures on TV.

In 2020 we saw the launch of TV tie in Publishing (HarperCollins), Magazines (Redan), DVDs (StudioCanal), as well as toys and games to include plush, figures and playsets (Rainbow Designs), puzzles (Ravensburger) and electronic learning aids (Trends).

From spring 2021, further TV tie in launches include Aykroyds/TDP (nightwear), Fashion UK (daywear), Kokomo (toiletries), Character World (bedding), Willian Lamb (bags, backpacks and footwear), DNC Housewares (lunch bags, bottles and melamine), Amscan (dress-up) and Moonpig and Danilo (greetings cards). Additional categories are in discussion for autumn/winter 2021.

These new TV tie-in launches bolster the existing licensing programme for Paddington, where there are new launches throughout 2021 from existing and new licensees, across both the classic and movie style guides.

In 2020, Copyrights also launched an official online Paddington Store, creating a destination for all Paddington fans. Consumers can now also find official Paddington eCommerce channels on Amazon, eBay, Facebook and Instagram.

The Adventures of Paddington has achieved strong and consistent ratings on both Nickelodeon and Milkshake since its launch. The first series, executive produced by multi-award winner David Heyman (Harry Potter, Paddington 1&2) features 52 episodes, each 11-minutes long.
