We are so excited about the launch of our latest Disney Baby collaboration with Winnie the Pooh! Pooh Bear has been a beloved character since the 1920s in England. After the First World War, a real bear named Winnie was a popular attraction at the London Zoo. Author A.A. Milne's son, Christopher Robin, loved Winnie so much that he named his own stuffed animal bear after him. His father, recovering from the stress of his service in the war, was so inspired by the sweet relationship between his son and the bear, he began to write children's stories about them, set in the peaceful woods around their home. Later, other characters joined the stories inspired by Christopher's other stuffed animals he owned: Roo, Tigger, Kanga, and Piglet.
Fast forward almost 100 years later, and Winnie the Pooh has become one of the most popular and beloved characters for children all over the world. Here are a few pics of our friends with their favorite bear over the years!
