“We didn’t realize we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun” –Winnie The Pooh
Winnie the Pooh has been bumbling through the lives of generations since A.A. Milne released a book of stories about the bear in 1926. For almost a century now, people have cherished Pooh’s sayings as much as they’ve cherished his adorable merchandise.
Our favorite silly old bear has appeared as almost every type of collectible, allowing countless families to welcome him into their homes. We’re as confident as Pooh is in his red crop top (we’re waiting for it to come back into fashion) that you’ll love our list of ways to incorporate a little more Pooh Bear into your life.
Itty Bittys Clippys Stuffed Animals
Pooh and Piglet go together like honey and… well, more honey! Now you can take these two besties with you wherever you go. Piglet may not always be up for an outing, but we know Pooh can talk him into an escapade or two. For $9.95 you can get both Pooh and Piglet together in a super portable form to remind you that life is always an adventure.
Gone are the good ole days of decorating your tree with handmade ornaments. Don’t say “oh bother”! Instead try the chubby-cheeked version of a smiling Pooh Bear made by America’s oldest stuffed animal manufacturer, GUND, for $14.99.
Could two worlds collide and be any sweeter? Even the most humble (or so he claims) bear would agree that a Precious Moments team up is aww-inducingly amazing. With many sizes and versions available, this little boy holding his Pooh bear runs about $42.99.
Tee-hee! You’ll stand out in the Hundred Acre Wood, or anywhere else you might adventure, with this $50 charm from Pandora. Pooh Bear’s smiling face will brighten your day and remind you to be friendly, kind and humble. A gift for yourself or another charm collector, it’s sure to be a highlight for young and old fans.
“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
Musical Snow Globe
Everyone knows how much Winnie the Pooh loves his hunny! Bring his world into yours with a highly collectible snow globe for $52.00. Bonus! This sweet sweet snow globe also plays the original “Winnie The Pooh Theme.” We know a Pooh Bear takes care of his tummy, so we can’t blame him for getting a little stuck.
Steiff Limited Edition Stuffed Bear
Straight from the legendary stuffed bear manufacturer Steiff, our favorite Silly Old Bear is reimagined for the modern day in a limited edition mohair version. Guaranteed to keep away the Huffalumps and Woozles at night for the bargain price of $198.
Still a chubby little cubby, but not quite so stuffed with fluff, this light topaz crystal Pooh Bear looks great on any shelf. We’re not sure what Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore would think of this extravagant version of their friend — oh wait! We do! They make all three to match in a perfect set! We’d trade all the sapphire hunny pots in the world for this beautiful $239 keepsake.
Even rarer than a Heffalump or Woozle sighting is this San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Winnie the Pooh Funko Pop! He is extra chubby and flocked for your enjoyment. You may want to leave Pooh in his box, though, because he comes at a hefty price tag of $500.
“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.”
You’d have to be a pinhead to miss out on the opportunity to own one of 150 limited edition pins from the now-defunct Disney Soda Fountain’s Pin Trader’s Delight. Rarely available (except perhaps in a certain enchanted neighborhood), this enamel Winnie the Pooh pin has sold for over $600. Pooh’s countenance is just as sweet as the jar of ice cream he’s depicted digging into..
Be the envy of all the Hundred Acre Wood with this first edition Winnie the Pooh book by the legendary A.A. Milne. Fun fact: Milne based his stories on his son (named Christopher Robin) and his stuffed bear named Winnie. Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet were all real toys belonging to Christopher Robin, too! Even the setting of the Hundred Acre Wood is based off of the actual location of the Milne family summer cottage just outside of London. Winnie the Pooh has been loved by generations, and there are many ways for him to continue to be loved and admired for years to come.
