“Pooh and his friends were given as gifts by author A. A. Milne to his son Christopher Robin Milne between 1920 and 1922. Pooh was purchased in London at Harrods for Christopher’s first birthday. Christopher later gave them to publisher E. P. Dutton, who in turn donated them to the New York Public Library.
Aug. 21, 1920 - Christopher Robin Milne, author and playwright A.A. Milne's only son, was the model for the little boy in the beloved Winnie the Pooh stories. They lived on a farm in Sussex, near a forest, which inspired the 100-acre Wood, where Winnie the Pooh's adventures took place. ! :)
I used to say this to my son Patric. He reminds me of Pooh. My son Tyler reminds me of Tigger. There is a great song in this movie 'Pooh's Grand Adventure', called'Forever and Ever'. I sang it to them often.
