Some of the best Winnie the Pooh Quotes

Pooh Bear, Piglet, Tigger, and the rest of  Christopher Robin’s imaginary plush friends started out as characters in the classic children’s books Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. The books followed the adventures and genuine connections of Pooh and all his friends in the 100-acre Woods.

Today, you can meet all of your favorite Winnie-the-Pooh characters in the Florida and California Disney theme parks, including Winnie the Pooh himself and his friends: Piglet the fearful pig, Tigger the excitable tiger, and my personal favorite Eeyore, the self-deprecating donkey.

The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh Ride Sign in Magic Kingdom.

Many of the characters were inspired by the stuffed animals owned by Milne’s son, Christopher Robin. Milne was able to take these plushies and turn them into what would become a favorite bedtime story for children before they drifted off to their own dream worlds of their own.

In 1961, the Walt Disney Company purchased the rights to our favorite imaginary bear and adapted his story into what would later become one of their most popular animated series. While he may not seem like your typical role model, Pooh’s kindness and silly demeanor have continued to make children and adults smile and laugh to this day.
