‘Goodbye Christopher Robin’ is in cinemas now, a true story about a boy and his stuffed animals, whose Dad saw potential for some wonderful, enchanting stories about a tubby bear who loves ‘hunny’!
Winnie The Pooh was always a favourite in our house when I was little and I used to read it to my son was he was a child. Here are some facts that you might not know about the ‘silly old bear’ and his friends in the 100 acre wood.
The inspiration for Winnie The Pooh was a real life bear and she was a she!
The original plush toys which belonged to the real life Christopher Robin are on display at the New York public library. You can see Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, and Kanga. Unfortunately Roo went missing many years ago 😦
Winnie The Pooh has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
January the 18th is ‘Winnie The Pooh Day’ (A.A.Milnes birthday).
100 Acre Wood, where Pooh lives with all of his friends, is actually 500 Acre Wood and is a cultivated pine plantation.
Winnie The Pooh is often referred to as ‘Pooh’, ‘Pooh Bear’ ‘Silly old bear’ but never just ‘Winnie’.
Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.
