As you may have heard, Michael Bond CBE, has passed away at 91 after a short illness, leaving generations of fans of his writing and his creation in mourning, but not however, left alone. No, he has left each one of us with the charge to care for our bear!

Paddington captured our hearts from the moment we laid eyes on him, whether it was cartoon, book, stuffed animal or major motion picture.

Paddington's creator was interviewed not long ago, and he gave this insight into Paddington's genesis:

Paddington's supporters have come out in droves to show their gratitude for being given such an honor:

Some were public about their Paddington adoration...

Others had a longstanding, deep and abiding love for the little refugee bear--and could prove it!

This fan even traveled to Peru with her Paddington bear...

These Paddington Bear supporters aren't going to let his creator's passing into that good night be the last the world's children hear of Their Bear.
