8 Polite Animals You’d Want To Invite To Tea and Marmalade Sandwiches

Paddington, the movie based on the beloved children’s book series, arrives in theaters this weekend. Paddington Bear, also known as Paddington Brown, is a very polite bear from Peru, living in London with a family of humans. He has many adventures, including riding the Underground, making toffee, and of course taking marmalade sandwiches with his tea at teatime.

In honor of Paddington’s big screen debut, we’ve put together a list of his well-mannered animal friends who would be excellent guests at any tea party!
