Pooh Bear


Can this be Winnie the Pooh himself? For sale at the Broc Troc in Menton last weekend.

'Pooh,' said Rabbit kindly, 'you haven't any brain.'
'I know,' said Pooh humbly.

Est-ce Winnie l'Ourson lui-même ? Il était en vente au Broc-Troc à Menton le week-end dernier.

'Ourson,' a déclaré Lapin gentiment, 'tu n'as pas de cerveau.'
'Je sais,' a répondu l'ourson humblement.

  4. I have an old bear almost like this, a button-in-the-ear Steiff one, just like the one on this site, but without the sailor blouse and although Steiff toys are pricey, I am sure my parents didn't pay that much!

  6. A favorite of many children. My kids, grandkids, and even my dogs who claim Pooh for themselves have loved him over the years...only ours is a mellow, honey yellow.

  13. If you are interested in seeing the original stuffed toys that belonged to Christopher Robin Milne, they are on display in the Central Children's Room at the New York City Library at 42nd Street and 5th Avenue.

    They were taken to the U.S. as part of a promotion tour for the books, and never made it back to England.

    I have an old Steiff one, too, who I knitted a red pullover ages ago.
