Happy Winnie the Pooh Day!

This is the wall sticker we have by Ethan's cot

I have no doubt you'll have heard of a certain tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff named Winnie the Pooh but did you know that today is officially Winnie the Pooh Day?

Created to commemorate A.A.Milne's birthday, Winnie the Pooh Day is a great excuse to celebrate with your little ones. Pooh and friends first came to life in 1926 when creator A.A.Milne found inspiration from his little boy's cuddly toys. The real Christopher Robin had a collection of stuffed animals that soon took on a life of their own (pictured below) and now, Winnie the Pooh is a must-read addition in many children's home libraries and it's easy to see why.

Winnie himself is a lovable, bashful bear and he's surrounded by his best friends, from a hyperactive bouncing Tigger to a slightly downcast but still adorabe donkey named Eeyore, who get up to all kinds of adventures together.

Since 1966, Disney has had the rights to Winnie and co. and undoubtedly they remain one of the most popular collection of characters the company has ever produced.

So, to celebrate Winnie the Pooh day, why not read a classic tale at bedtime tonight or watch a cartoon together?


Deep in the hundred acre wood where Christopher Robin plays
You'll find the enchanted neighborhood of Christopher's childhood days
A donkey named Eeyore is his friend and Kanga and little Roo
There's Rabbit and Piglet and there's Owl, but most of all Winnie the Pooh
