~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!
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.
