'Paddington' Props Are Up for Grabs
The props' proceeds will benefit The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness' "Be Homeful" campaign
Souvenirs from one beloved bear's travels from Darkest Peru to London are up for grabs online.
Beginning Dec. 10 at 9 a.m. PT, props from the critically praised Paddington will go on sale on Gilt.com, with all proceeds benefiting The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness' "Be Homeful" campaign, which strives to put an end to homelessness before it begins.
Starring Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Peter Capaldi and Nicole Kidman, the Paul King-directed adaptation brings Michael Bond's much-loved character to life as he leaves his destroyed hometown and finds himself cozying up to Mr. and Mrs. Brown in London. That family also includes daughter Judy with her isolating headphones ($450), son Jonathan with his playful yoyo ($175) and Mrs. Bird with her duster ($150).
Also up for grabs from the film are the skateboard ($1,200) and umbrella ($500) that the bear "borrows" to accidentally, yet adorably, become an enforcer of local law.
Shoppers can nab signed books ($150) and posters ($250) by members of the cast, as well as official licensed memorabilia, toys and artwork. The online sale will also spotlight a curated collection of children's clothing and accessories inspired by the film. Here's hoping that their supply of red hats and toggle coats are well-stocked for all.
Paddington hits U.S. theaters Jan. 16. Head to Gilt.com/Paddington on Dec. 10 at 9 a.m. PT to start shopping.
