Winnie the Pooh is a fictional character created by A.A. Milne, a children's author in the United Kingdom. Winnie, or Pooh as he is commonly known as, is based on a stuffed bear that A.A. Milne's son had. The main reason why Winnie the Pooh costumes are so fun to make and to dress up in is that the character is so lovable. He loves honey and had many different adventures with his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. The first book was published in 1926 and since then the characters have been adored by millions of fans worldwide.
The familiar tubby form of Winnie the Pooh has been a favorite of animation and film, with talented voice actors giving the characters their unique voice. The costume is easily identifiable and will work well with young toddlers and older kids for parties, games and Halloween.
Store bought costumes can be easily found and if you are good at sewing, felt and a red tee shirt will help to complete a quick Winnie the Pooh outfit, you can add a pot of honey for the best effect.
Winnie the Pooh is a good character with straightforward humor and the different situations he finds himself and his friends is a welcome relief from most of what passes for humor or entertainment today. Pooh enjoys life and knows that the really important people are friends and relations. Disney has added a few characters to the mixture of Winnie the Pooh and his friends.
His likeness appears on everything from shirts to teacups, so it is easy for collectors to find items with the familiar yellow bear that loves Christopher Robin and honey. The original toys are on display at the New York Public Library for all to see.
