What to buy:


That?s the label each of these bears comes with. Do I look like a Zoo Keeper or some sort of wildlife foster parent? A toy for children that begs is absolutely wrong in my humble opinion. In fact ?Paddy? isn?t just asking for some spare change. He is asking to be housed, cloth, fed and educated to University level. Yeah, just throw in a car at the appropriate age, telephone bills and the high cost of honey. Disgusting!

You can find this little anti-social outcast at ? you guessed it ? shops in Paddington Station (Tube and Train). I really think I need to ask. If his Mum didn?t want him, do you really want an anti-social bear cub that will grow to 1.5 to 1.8 meters (% to 6 ft) tall and weigh 130 ? 200 kilograms (286 ? 440 lb) in your house? And you think human teenagers throw fits. Wait until you see damage on a Biblical scale in your house in a few years.

Then there is the whole immigration issue. Paddy here is from Peru with NO DOCUMENTS! Passport? Immunization. So if your neighbours report you to the authorities you will be harbouring an under-age illegal immigrant with possible contagious skin issues. Not good. In fact you will need a very expensive solicitor.

By the way the pictures are of one I bought at Paddington. And promptly shipped off to a niece with a bigger house and an ex-Sister-in-Law I hate. Let her clean up the bear poop in one of her 2 living rooms.

If you still want one, follow the link below.

You were warned.

Directions: Also available at many toy stores across London and on-line.
