About Paddington

For over 50 years, British-born writer Michael Bond has been entertaining children and families all over the world with his stories of Paddington Bear, the marmalade-loving, duffel-coat-wearing, Wellington-booted bear from Darkest Peru.

 

Since the first book, A Bear Called Paddington, was published by HarperCollins in 1958, a further 13 full-length novels and countless other formats have been published. Paddington’s adventures have been adapted several times for the small screen, most notably by Michael Bond himself, in collaboration with Ivor Wood and FilmFair, for the BBC, and HBO in the 1970s and 80s. In recognition of Paddington’s extraordinary popularity and success, Michael Bond was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) from the Queen for services to children’s literature in 1997. Today, with over 70 titles available in 40 languages and more than 100 countries, book sales are in excess of 35 million.

About Trend Lab Trend Lab, LLC was founded in 2001 as a privately held, certified women-owned business based in Minnesota, on the belief that new parents desire sophisticated, trend-right nursery décor to flow with their home décor. Since then, product offerings have expanded to include infant and toddler bedding and accessories, home décor and gift items, and diaper bags.
