Adding to the OBE he received in 1997, Paddington's creator will be awarded the CBE in the Queens birthday honours list and The Paddington Collective is thrilled with the news.
When Shirley Clarkson presented Paddington creator Michael Bond with the original Bears, it was at his request that 'Thank You' was added to the luggage label. So you will find on the very early Gabrielle Designs Paddington swing tags it simply reads 'Please look after this Bear'. The message was written by his dear Aunt Lucy and, as we all know she was very polite. We think this a very appropriate addition.

It was Jezza's mum Shirley Clarkson that gave life to our beloved Gabrielle Designs Paddington Bear. In fact it was jeremy and his sister who recieved the first bears as Christmas presents back in 1972.
So whether you love him or hate him, we certainly have his mum Shirley to thank for or beloved Gabrielle Designs bears.

During the 1970's and 80's Gabrielle Designs produced and sold millions of their signature handmade bears. Each bear came with different felt hat and coat and Wellington boots. We'd be very interested to know your favourite colour combination or if you have a bear with a particularly rare colour scheme please let us know. Here are a few of our favourites
