Paddington eventually arrived at his destination as a present for my youngest grand-daughter but was immediately appropriated by her big sister who fell in love at first sight. She will have to return him to his rightful owner when her little sister gets an bit older. He didn't arrive the first time around but after contacting Amazon, he arrived very quickly. Everyone agreed he is absolutely adorable and quite unique in Toronto.
The purchase was trouble free. I received it within the time stated and was very pleased with it. However, I would say they are a bit ambitious with the sizing. I am large but not nearly as large as the maximum bust size quoted and it only just fits me. I also expected a softer cotton fabric but it may get softer when I wash it.
