It’s hard to beat a good old teddy bear, particularly one that’s really old. Paddington Bear is a world-class traveler who has stood the test of time for a reason: He’s adorable, and he’s completely not maddening. This stuffed Paddington, which has all kinds of interesting features (hello, faux toggles!), is suitable for newborns. That means it can be your baby’s first love and stay with him for the long haul.
