Rumble Tumble into the History of Winnie the Pooh

The story of this Bear of Very Little Brain began long before the internet era, with the first book written by A.A. Milne published in 1926. 'Winnie the Pooh' was inspired by Milne's son, Christopher and his stuffed teddy. The teddy was named Winnie, after a Canadian black bear in London Zoo and Pooh, after a swan they met on a holiday. The tales of Winnie's honey-obssessed adventures with his pals Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore and others, have stolen hearts worldwide and helped many a troubled brows to unfurrow.

Why January 18?

The date, January 18, is a nod to the creator, A.A. Milne, born on this day in 1882. This day serves as a tribute to this author who created a world loved by children and adults alike. It's argued that one might find more wisdom in a single 'Poohism' than in all the self-help sections of the library combined!

How to Celebrate?

There's enough honey to go around, if you're willing to brave the bees! Bake honey cupcakes, play Pooh sticks, or binge-watch the delightful animation series. Rediscover your inner child or invite new little thinkers into the world of Winnie the Pooh, to share timeless wisdom and boundless fun.
