Wish a special child in your life a happy St. Patrick’s Day with Paddy Bear. Paddy is the first and original Irish bear. Cute and irresistibly cuddly, he is impeccably dressed in a white shirt layered with a dark green waistcoat that features a three-leaf shamrock clover.
The shamrock clover is the national flower of Ireland that is associated with good fortune. Saint Patrick also used the three leaves of the shamrock to signify the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost while teaching the Holy Trinity of Christianity to the Irish. The three leaves have also been thought to represent faith, love, and hope. Paddy is also decked out in a charming leprechaun hat with a gold-buckled band and shamrock flower.
According to fables from the 8th Century, leprechauns are little beings that typically take the form of an old man in a red or green coat. They’re naughty creatures that like to store gold coins in pots of gold hidden at the ends of rainbows and make shoes. It’s said that if one ever captures a leprechaun, he will give the capturer three wishes if he sets him free.
Paddy Bear is a perfect gift for young children for St. Patrick’s Day or any special occasion.
