My Paddington Bear!
While in London Paddington Station take time to go find the bear!  Paddington Bear that is.  From a classic British  children's tale by Michael Bond, Paddington is a stowaway immigrant from Darkest Peru that has come to London.  He is identified by an iconic hat and duffle coat.

A small statue of Paddington Bear was made and placed in Paddington station in 2000.  It is a fairly small statue near the escalators on the main concourse.  The section of the station called "the lawn".  He is often used as a meeting place in this very busy rail station.

If one of your young ones finds Paddington cute, there is a kiosk near by that has plenty of bears for sale.  You will find them in all shapes and sizes.  They should all have a tag attached to his coat that reads, "Please look after this bear.  Thank you."
