Winnie the Pooh Day

Today, January 18, is National Winnie the Pooh Day! Every year on January 18th, millions of fans across the globe celebrate the birth of A.A. Milne, the author of Winnie the Pooh. And of course, we’ve got great costumes for kids to dress up.

Visit our Classic Disney Costumes section or just type your favorite character’s name into our search box. Some of the costumes for babies are shown above. We couldn’t resist!

~On the left you see an adorable, and not at all depressed, little Eeyore. We’ve also got Eeyore costumes for older kids, and even one for your dog!

~In the middle is Pooh himself. We have a larger full-body plush for an older child, a hooded vest, and a costume for 3-12 month old little’uns.

~On the right is Pooh’s cute little pal, Piglet, made for 12 – 18 month-olds.

We’ve also got 3 different styles of Tigger costumes for kids, and if you want to be Kanga with Roo, try our Kangaroo Plush with Baby costume.

Take time today to read one of the classics by A.A. Milne. The first collection of stories about the character was the book Winnie-the-Pooh (1926), and this was followed by The House at Pooh Corner (1928). Or watch a Winnie the Pooh DVD or play a video game!

Did you know? (According to Wikipedia….)

• Milne named the character Winnie-the-Pooh after a teddy bear owned by his son, who was the basis for the character Christopher Robin. His toys also lent their names to most of the other characters.

• Christopher Milne had named his toy bear after Winnie, an American black bear which he often saw at London Zoo, and "Pooh", a swan they had met while on holiday.

• The Winnie-the-Pooh stories are set in Ashdown Forest, Sussex, England, a large area of tranquil open heathland situated 30 miles (50 km) south of London.
