I think that everyone can agree that Winnie-The-Pooh is probably one of the most beloved bedtime story characters ever created for children – and you can download a copy of the Winnie The Pooh PDF book right here to share with your kids!
Winnie-The-Pooh, or “Pooh” or “Pooh Bear” was created by the author Alan Alexander Milne (or A.A. Milne) in 1926 and was named after his son’s teddy bear. A.A. Milne’s son’s name? Christopher Robin Milne!
As I’m sure you know, Christopher Robin is Winnie-the-Pooh’s best friend in the Winnie The Pooh book. A.A. Milne also included the rest of his son’s toys as characters in the book – Piglet, Eeyore, Roo, Tigger, and Kanga.
Winnie The Pooh was very popular when it was published for the first time in 1926 and has since then been translated into many languages. Walt Disney Studios bought the rights to the Winnie The Pooh book in 1961 and, since then, has made quite a few Winnie-The-Pooh movies. They have also expanded on the series by making movies for other Winnie the Pooh characters, including The Tigger Movie, Pooh’s Heffalump Movie, and Piglet’s Big Movie.

Is Winnie-The-Pooh A Girl Or A Boy?
In A.A. Milne’s books, Pooh Bear is always referred to as “he” or “him”. In Disney’s movies, he is also always voiced by male voice actors. However, the bear after whom Pooh was named was in fact a girl bear.
Christopher Milne had named his toy bear after Winnie, a Canadian black bear he often saw at London Zoo, and Pooh, a swan they had encountered while on holiday.Wikipedia | Winnie-The-Pooh
The bear cub was purchased from a hunter for C$20 by Canadian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn in White River, Ontario, while en route to England during the First World War. He named the bear Winnie after his adopted hometown in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Winnie was surreptitiously brought to England with her owner, and gained unofficial recognition as The Fort Garry Horse regimental mascot.
Colebourn left Winnie at the London Zoo while he and his unit were in France; after the war she was officially donated to the zoo, as she had become a much-loved attraction there.
How Old Is Winnie-The-Pooh?
In the book, “House At Pooh Corner”, we are told that Pooh Bear was a birthday gift given to Christopher Robin when he turned one year old. Christopher Robin was born on the 21st of August 1920 so Pooh’s birthday would be the 21st of August 1921. This would make Pooh Bear 102 years old in 2023!
When Is Winnie The Pooh’s Birthday?
There are two trains of thought on when Pooh Bear’s birthday is. The most popular being the 21 August 1921 as mentioned above.
However, some people prefer to use the date on which Pooh was introduced to the world for the first time. If you think this is a more appropriate date then Pooh Bear’s birthday would be the 24th of December 1925. This is the date that Winnie The Pooh’s first story was published in the Evening News Newspaper. What a wonderful Christmas Eve gift to the world!
What Color Is Winnie The Pooh?
Winnie The Pooh is yellow!
In the original Winnie The Pooh book (which is the same as the Winnie The Pooh PDF download in this article), the illustrations weren’t in color. Usually bears from that era were brown but it is said that when it came to marketing Pooh Bear, they wanted to make him stand out so they decided to make him yellow instead of brown. We tried to find information on the exact yellow that Pooh Bear is but could only find paint colors. This color is called Disney Pooh Bear Yellow:

Who Voices Winnie-The-Pooh?
Jim Cummings is probably the voice you would recognize when you think of Pooh Bear. Not only does he voice Pooh Bear but he voices Tigger to! However, Pooh Bear has been voiced by a couple of other voice actors over the years. These include Sterling Holloway, Franz Fazakas, and Hal Smith. Who is your favorite?

Why is Winnie+-The-Pooh banned in China?
In 2013 Chinese President Xi Jinping visited President Barrack Obama in the United States. After his visit memes started surfacing comparing President Xi Jinping with Pooh Bear. The Chinese Communist Party was not impressed and decided to ban all things Pooh Bear including movies, toys, and merchandise.

Winnie The Pooh Quotes
A.A. Milne has some of the most beautiful quotes and many of them come straight from the Pooh Bear himself. Here are a few of my favorites!
