Paddington Bear: Collector's Edition

Did you see a trailer for the upcoming Paddington Bear movie that will be hitting theaters in January?  We started seeing the trailer on television right around Thanksgiving, and as soon as my girls saw it, they wanted to go see. Luckily I had the next best thing, as the girls would have to a short time until this new movie hits theaters.  Thanks to a new DVD release from Mill Creek Entertainment, I was able to introduce my girls to the lovable Paddington Bear with the Paddington Bear: Collector's Edition DVD, which arrived on DVD on November 24th.  

Here is more about this recent DVD release:

"Please Look After This Bear. Thank You.

Based off the acclaimed books by Michael Bond, Paddington Bear has captured the imaginations and hearts of young and old around the world for generations. Dressed in his characteristic blue duffle coat and oversized hat, the helpful and cuddlesome Paddington has a gift of putting his paws where he shouldn’t, creating hours of hilariously sticky situations!

A stow-away from darkest Peru, Paddington eventually finds himself alone in Paddington Station, a tag around his neck reading: “Please look after this bear. Thank you. ” When the Brown family take him home, they get a lot more than they bargained for.

This cuddly DVD collection features all 56 episodes and all three ½ hour specials of the original stop-motion production along with 13 episodes of the animated series The Adventures of Paddington Bear."


I grew up loving Paddington Bear after I had the story read to me.  One birthday, I even received a cuddly Paddington Bear, which I still have to this day and showed my girls.  I've shared before on my blog how I love to share some of my favorite childhood toys and movies with my girls, so I was excited to hear about the upcoming January Paddington movie coming to theaters January 15, 2015, and then couldn't wait to receive a screener copy of this Collector's Edition to share with the girls.

Included on this DVD collection is 13 full length episodes of the animated series, " The Adventures of Paddington Bear" as well as all 56 episodes and three 1/2 hour special of the original stop-motion production.  I had no idea that there were 56 episodes, but found myself remembering many of the episodes once I started to watch them with the girls.  As soon as the girls started to watch the first episode, they fell in love with Paddington Bear  They were both quick to ask if we could send Santa another letter asking for a Paddington Bear of their own. :-)  This is when I showed them my Paddington Bear from my childhood, which they got in cuddle time with.

Having never seen the animated series before, I especially couldn't wait to watch these.  I have to say while I am familiar with the stop-motion episodes, I found myself becoming a fan of the animated The Adventures of Paddington Bear series, which really added life and a new feel to everyone's favorite brown bear.

With so many episodes and specials to watch, we are only halfway through.  But, of the episodes we have seen so far, we are loving this new Paddington Bear Collector's Edition 3-DVD set.  

If you were a fan of Paddington Bear growing up, or have children who love the classic story or have seen the animated The Adventures of Paddington Bears series, and are looking for a fun new DVD to add to your family's movie collection, why not pick up a copy of this release from Mill Creek Entertainment today.  It would sure make for a great last minute gift idea or to add to your child's stocking.
