To help you decide if you should buy the Paddington Bear Trunki here are the must know facts about the suitcase.
It's difficult to identify anything not to like about the Paddington Trunki. After all we love the Trunki brand here at Travelbetter and both Travelbetter Girl and Boy love their Trunki ride on suitcases
Plus, they have added on a character we all love. In fact just seeing him on this Trunki reminds me of times when we have all been cuddled up on the sofa watching the Padding Movies and we are sure others will have similar memories.
So overall this product provides a fun, useful and robust ride on suitcase for kids decorated with a much loved character. Although we wouldn't recommend putting marmalade sandwiches inside no matter how tempted you are.
Paddington Bear is a loveable childrens character who first appeared in the childrens book A bear called Paddington back in October 1958 and he went on to be featured in many more stories all written by the talented British Author Michael Bond.
Paddington orignated from Peru, or darkest Peru as it was referred to in the stories, and arrived in England at Paddington Station in London wearing a rain hat, large duffle coat and carrying a battered suitcase.
When he first arrived he was a little bit lost but luckily he stumbled across the friendly Brown family who promptly adopted him and gave him his name Paddington Brown.
He then went on to have many fun adventures and despite always having the best intentions at heart seemed to have a knack for getting into a pickle. But he always tried his best and was always very polite and I think it was this loveable and well mannered enthusiasm that made him such a hit with British children and parents.
The Paddington Bear stories have gone on to be translated into 30 languages and more than 30 million copies have been sold worldwide. His stories have been made into cartoons and now two great movies containing a host of stars such as Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman.
But what makes Paddington such a great choice for a Trunki? Well, he is a born traveller and adventurer. Just think he is a small bear who bravely left his home in Peru to travel 9,738km across the globe to England to have adventure after adventure.
Plus, he was also there when the Channel Tunnel was completed as he was included as one of the gifts the English exchanged with the French when the tunnel was completed. So this makes Paddington an excellent choice for a Trunki to inspire our little ones to travel the globe, quest for adventure, always look to do the right thing and always politely.
