Paddington Bear for babyGap

February 4, 2014

So many of our childhood memories are tied back to the books our parents would read to us…being so close in age (we are 15 months apart) and having a younger brother 14 months younger than Molly meant that we would all cuddle around one story each night. Favorites included the tales of Eloise, Corduroy, Amelia Bedelia, Angelina Ballerina, and of course: Paddington Bear. The sweet bear, originally found in England’s Paddington Station and taken in by a loving family, was a standout in his toggled coat and yellow hat and we thought it hilarious that he always seemed to be getting…

So many of our childhood memories are tied back to the books our parents would read to us…being so close in age (we are 15 months apart) and having a younger brother 14 months younger than Molly meant that we would all cuddle around one story each night. Favorites included the tales of Eloise, Corduroy, Amelia Bedelia, Angelina Ballerina, and of course: Paddington Bear. The sweet bear, originally found in England’s Paddington Station and taken in by a loving family, was a standout in his toggled coat and yellow hat and we thought it hilarious that he always seemed to be getting into troubled situations despite his good intentions and love for marmalade toast. Seeing author Michael Bond’s character commemorated through the limited edition collection at babyGap is such a nostalgic blast from the past…

Although we can’t scoop up any of the adorable pieces for ourselves, we’re lucky enough to have a few friends with newborns and babies that we can buy gift for. Really, the only thing cuter than tiny humans is tiny clothes. It’s just a fact. Both of us are squealing over the cuteness of the sweet dresses, onesies, sweaters, and bear-eared hats and hoodies—it’s easy to pick perfect presents when there are so many adorable options! Above are just a few of the precious items that we’ll be giving to our friends with kiddos! Be sure to watch the darling video, too…

This post was inspired by Paddington Bear™ for babyGap. A limited edition for your new little addition. Shop the collection.

  1. I have two little ones and I usually steer clear of the Gap because they put either teddy bears (yuck) or skulls (for a baby?) on so many of their clothes. This collection is adorable however – I plan to order that red heathered dress for my one year-old! Thanks!

  2. I came across this yesterday and it.is.darling!! My husband and I are waiting several years before we try for children, but these clothes make me want to start our future babies’ wardrobes now! Haha. Crazy?

  3. I loved all the same books as you! And I adore this Paddington collection. Unfortunately I don’t have any close friends or family members with little ones quite this little right now!

  4. Awww, such an adorable collection! Well done, babyGap.
    I loved Paddington Bear as a child. Still love it (don’t tell anyone!). I guess in some way I am still a child, because I go crazy when I see bear-eared hats, and hoodies, and what not.They’re so darn cute!
