Hi Guys, I have the most amazing news today – I shall leave it as a surprise read on to find out more – now I love Disney’s Winnie The Pooh and I want to tell you all about this lovely, fluffy bear.

 

Now for those of you who do not know who Winnie the Pooh is he is a fictional teddy created by English author A. A. Milne and illustrated by E.H Shepard.

 

The history stems from 1914 and a veternarian who was on his way to care for the soldiers horse in World War 1 came across a female baby bear which had been tied up by a hunter at a train station. Harry rescued the bear and called her Winniepeg (Winnie for short) after his hometown in Canada. The bear became the mascot for the Canadian Army before travelling miles over land and sea to finally reside in England.

Walt Disney then came along and Daphne Milne sold him the rights and then Winnie the Pooh was born – Amazing right!
