Ovation Brands, Paddington Giveaway! Ends Jan 31st, 2017

Disclaimer: I was provided with product in order to fully appreciate and give an opinion of it. All thoughts are my own and your views may differ to mine. Thank you. 

Ovation Brand's chain of eateries, which include: Old Country Buffet, Hometown Buffet, Country Buffet, Ryan's and Furr's Fresh Buffet are at it again with a great Family Night promotional series featuring Paddington bear for a "Beary Great" time. 

Family Night's occur on Thursdays between 5pm and 8pm and allow kids to participate in fun/educational activities. The dates thus far for the most current event series are as follows:

●       January 12 – Please Look After this Bear

●       January 19 – History of Teddy Bears

●       January 26 – BYOB, Bring Your own Bear

●       February 2 – All Aboard! From Peru to Paddington Station

●       February 9 – Letters to Aunt Lucy

●       February 16 – Dogs Must be Carried


As part of this event, I was lucky enough to get to see the Paddington movie on DVD, which was so emotional for me because I grew up with Paddington Bear and used to collect all manner of toys, pictures and artifacts relating to that lovable bear.


As a true fan, I can definitely say that I loved this movie and wasn't disappointed, at all. I think they did a wonderful job of recreating a real-world Paddington movie and they got the casting just perfectly right and lovely. The fun comes with the little hap-hazzardly bear, who still loves a marmalade sandwich to get him through any emergency and he's always trying to get himself out of a sticky spot that perhaps he never quite realizes he's getting into before it is too late.

The movie is fun, quirky and a great watch for the entire family - even my younger childen sat the whole way through and adored this wonderful little bear.


I am 100% into this series for Ovation Brands and think it might be my favorite one yet. To celebrate the series Ovation Brands wants to offer one of my readers a copy of Paddington on DVD, a Paddington plush bear and 4 complimentary meal tickets for any of the Ovation Brand's eateries.
