History of Winnie the Pooh

Some fictional characters remain staples in the lives of many families worldwide.

It’s fair to say that Winnie the Pooh, that loveable, good-natured, honey-loving teddy bear, is one of those characters.

Recalling stories of him and his dear friends in Hundred Acre Woods is guaranteed to bring smiles to faces.

The tales of Winnie the Pooh and his friends Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, and Roo are the brainchild of British author and playwright A. A. Milne.

He dreamt up the characters in the 1920s. It’s incredible to think that the books are still relevant to this day, 100 years later.

Milne was inspired by his son, Christopher Robin, and his collection of stuffed animals.

Shortly after Milne’s death in the late 50s, Disney acquired the rights to Winnie the Pooh and introduced this silly, loveable bear to many more children worldwide.

The success of Winnie the Pooh has remained the same over the years.

His stories are full of heartwarming advice and words of wisdom and encourage all to live a better, more positive life.
