Experience the excitement of receiving post from Paddington
Perfect for children aged four to ten, Paddington’s Postcards is a wonderful way to teach your little adventurer about how other children live around the world.
Sign up for a monthly direct debit of £8. And as a bear-sized thank you, Paddington will share the joy of learning about different countries in a personalised postcard (and more!) with your child.
Each month you and your child will:
- Receive a surprise in the post addressed to your child — packed with a postcard, stickers, fact cards and fun activities
- Learn about the life of a child in a different country
- Track the adventure with Paddington on a world map and travel journal
- Receive an accompanying email to bring the next pack to life
“It makes me feel excited! I don’t get stuff in the post every day.” – Bertie, age seven

Frequently asked questions
What are parents saying about Paddington's Postcards?
“It’s a real treat. They sit down at the kitchen table and rip it open straight away. Then read it out loud. It’s really nice.” – Thomas
“My 8yo son is home educated and we are using the packs as our geography topic currently. The current pack we are using is brilliant 😊 I would highly recommend.” – Charmaine

How do I sign up for someone else’s child as a gift?
We can only collect children’s personal data with the consent of the parent or legal guardian.
If you would like to sign up on behalf of a child for whom you are not the parent or legal guardian, we recommend addressing the postcards to the recipient’s family (e.g. The Smith Family) when adding delivery details on the next page.
Please also tick that you are not providing children’s data on the next page.
