Can you believe our lovable Pooh is turning 80
this year and he has not aged one teensy bit!
fat “bear of very little brain” who would like
to drift peacefully through life humming tunes
and stopping frequently to eat “a little something.”
However, Pooh finds himself involved in all sorts of
frantic adventures, assisted by such friends as
Eeyore, Piglet, Owl, and Rabbit, along with his
countless relations — especially when word of
something terrible is coming to the Hundred Acre Woods.
Pooh is fascinating!
Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl and Roo are fascinating!
Each character has his own individual
personality, traits, and quirks, and
each has a good heart and
deep friendship for all the others.

About little about each character
Pooh is a lovable who is stuffed with fluff, is also called Winnie-The-Pooh, Pooh or Pooh Bear, but never, ever, just Winnie. Pooh endlessly craves a snackrerel of whatever little something is at hand (preferably honey) to sooth that insatiable “rumbly in his tumbly.” But even honey isn’t as important as his friends. Their happiness and feelings are Pooh’s chief concern, and there is no better fiend than Winnie the Pooh.
Tigger is an exuberant, one-of-a-kind character with a famously springy tail. He acts on every impulse and his boisterous manner often leads him to leap before he looks. Tigger’s bounching is a pure expression of his utter zest for life, a joy he’s always eager to share with his friends. His unique personality extends to his use of language with Tigger twists and turns.
EEYORE is everyone’s favorite gloomy donkey. Eeyore’s tiny bright pink bow on his tail, the one hint of color against his gray, is a perfect symbol of the kernel of joy that occasionally surfaces in him.
Piglet with pink ears and a striped jersey, he is a soft-spoken and skittish little fellow whose generosity and humility outweigh his meager size. His quirky movements, anxious hand wringing, and occasional stuttering (“Oh d-d-d-dear”) convey his nervousness and fear of the unknown. But when his friends are in need, Piglet doesn’t hesitate to help out without a selfish thought.
Rabbit is perhaps the smartest of the Hundred Acre Wood friends (at least he thinks so) and often the self-appointed leader of the grop. The other characters’ often oblivious reaction to careful instructions make him fume. Although Rabbit often quickly overreacts, his friends know that underneath his sometimes bristly exterior is a good heart.
Roo, the pint-sized kangaroo, lives with his mother, Kanga. Roo takes great joy in discovering the small wonders in life. He is curious, fun-loving, and a kindred spirit to Tigger, who he looks up to. Kanga has passed on to Ro her ability to observe the world in a loving and sympathetic way. As a result, Roo is capable of expressing thoughts and feelings that seem wiser than his years.
OWL has superior intelligence and is known throughout the Hundred Acre Wood, as are his talents for writing, Spelling, other Educated and Special tasks. With plenty of Interesting Anecdotes and advice to impart, Owl spends considerable time speaking eloquently to Pooh, Piglet, and the others. Owl’s home at The Chestnuts is grander than everyone else’s–equipped with both a knocker and a bell-pull! But Brains and a charming, old-world residence never inhibit Owl from being a dignified and wise resident of the Forest, and a friend to all. "And if anyone knows anything about anything, it’s Owl who knows something about something..."
A.A. Milne & his son, Christopher Robbins
A short history of the world’s most popular Pooh (because that’s all a “Bear of Very little Brain” can remember!) and the talented author, A.A. Milne who’s son is actually named Christopher Robin in real life.
It all began in 1921 when young Christopher Robin Milne received a teddy bear named Edward as a gift for his first birthday. Over the next few years, he added other stuffed toys to his collection, which grew to include a donkey, a kangaroo or two, a pig, and a sriped tiger. Owl and Rabbit were based on animals that lived near the author’s Cotchford Farm in East Sussex (England). When Christopher was four, he went to the London Zoo and struck up a friendship with a Canadian black bear named Winnie (short for the bear’s hometown of Winnipeg). This fascination let the boy’s famous father, noted playwright/journalist A.A. Milne, to invent a wonderful series of stories and books.
The books were written at the suggestion of the author’s wife, Daphne. On Dcember 24, 1925, the first Pooh story was published in the “London Evening News..” It had the descriptive title “In Which We Are Introduced to Winnie-the-Pooh and Some Bees, and the Stories Begin.” The story proved to be so popular that it was broadcast by BBC radio the following day (Christmas Day).
Milne, who ived from 1882 to 1956, was one of England’s most successful playwrights. He also spent many years writing humorous essays for “Punch Magazine,” where he served as an assistant editor for eight years. Milne wrote the original Pooh stories primarily to amuse himself. In the great tradition of J.M. Barrie and Lewis Carroll, he used a child as the catalyst to pen his stories. In face, he was truly writing of world affairs, politics, puzzles, and the beauty of childhood.
Milne went n to write two Pooh books ‘ “Winnie-the-Pooh” (1926) and “The House at Pooh Corner” (1928.) Boh boks were beautifully illustrated with line drawings by noted artist E.H. Shepard. The same team collaborated on two other acclaimed books of children’s verse tht featured the beloved character – “When We Were Very Young” (1924) and “Now We Are Six’ (1927)
Many of the locales used in Pooh stories are based on real areas near the author’s home in East Sussex, Englad. The Forest and the ndred Acrew Wood were inspired by Ashdown Forest and the Five Hundred Acre Wood.
Several years before the real Christopher Robin passed away (April 20, 1996), he became involved in efforts to preserve and protect the wooded area near his childhood home that had inspired his father’s masterworks.

POOH's Movie Debut
The first Disney Pooh featurette, “Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Treet,” was released in 1966. Through the years, Pooh, Tigger, and the Hundred Acre Wood gang have appeared in many videos, educational films, holiday secials, and a TV series culminating in the first Pooh full-length original feature film, “The Tigger Movie,” which opened in theatres nationwide February 11, 2000.
According to leading Pooh authority Peter Dennis, Milne didn’t base the character of Tigger on a tiger t rather on a spirited black spaniel dog named Chum. Chum was always bouncing or jumping into things and causing a great deal of trouble for his owners. Tigger only appeas in three of the 20 Pooh stories and didn’t bounce onto the scene until 1928.FREE ONLINE GAMES
