Win a Classic Winnie the Pooh from Rainbow Designs Ltd

We’ve gone a little bit Winnie the Pooh mad in our house. We are all very excited about the release of the Christopher Robin movie on August 17th. We’ve been reading some of the classic stories by A.A. Milne and we’ve given the boy a lovely Classic Winnie the Pooh soft toy from Rainbow Designs to keep him company.

This adorable Cuddly Classic Winnie the Pooh, is the most famous and best loved character from A.A Milne’s heart-warming classic stories. This Tales from Hundred Acre Wood version of Winnie the Pooh makes the ultimate snuggle companion for baby; or indeed a Pooh loving 7 year old!

This lovable 30cm premium soft toy has been made using the softest, textured plush fabric which makes him extra snuggly. He has an embroidered paw and looks just like the Pooh we remember from the drawings in the original books. I love him and so does my son.

We live near our very own Hundred Acre Wood and often go on woodland adventures; playing Pooh Sticks stood on the bridge over the river. We took our Classic Winnie the Pooh on an adventure of our own and we even had a little teddy bears picnic too. Winnie sits up nicely by himself, but he did need some help eating his honey sandwiches!

He is very soft and lovable. He is suitable from birth and would make a very lovely gift for a new baby; or a Winnie the Pooh fan of any age. He’s large, but not over sized and as you can see from the photo with my son, he’s just the right size for cuddling. This particular Pooh bear seems well made, with quality stitching and good materials; his features are true to the original too.

This lovely Tales from Hundred Acre Wood version of Winnie the Pooh is made by Rainbow Designs Ltd and costs around £24.99. He is available at John Lewis and other retailers.

Review: Christopher Robin Movie Winnie the Pooh Plush Range

Winnie the Pooh has been a children’s favourite for almost a century. The first collection of stories about this wonderful bear and his friends was first published in 1926. Since then Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh and friends have been a part of so many childhoods. This summer sees the release of the Christopher Robin movie starring Ewan McGregor.

To celebrate the release of the Christopher Robin movie on 17th August, Posh Paws have just launched their Winnie the Pooh plush range; and what a range it is. The characters are all based on the original drawings of Winnie the Pooh and friends, so they have a wonderful original, vintage feel to them. I was never 100% happy with the modern cartoon version of Winnie, I’ve always much preferred the original.

I was sent the 10 inch tall Winnie the Pooh plush and the 10 inch Eeyore Plush; both of which retail for £14.99. The Christopher Robin movie Winnie the Pooh range also includes Piglet and Tigger. All the characters are available in 7”, 10” and 20”.

Review: Christopher Robin Movie Winnie the Pooh Plush Range

These Christopher Robin movie Winnie the Pooh Plush toys are really sweet and special. They are officially licenced from Disney, so they’re the real deal. The super soft plush makes them so fluffy and cuddly. Winnie the Pooh is wearing his knitted red jumper which makes him instantly recognisable. Both Winnie and Eeyore are wonderfully snuggly and great to cuddle.

The Posh Paws Christopher Robin movie plush toys are suitable from birth and these vintage, heritage style toys are so soft and cuddly, I am a little bit in love with them. They would make a really wonderful gift for a newborn, or for any Winnie the Pooh fan. They’re a real keepsake, true to the original illustrations by Ernest Howard Shepard in the A.A. Milne books and just the thing for little ones to cuddle as they snuggle down at night.

Children’s Books: Five Classic Books About Bears

In real life, bears are such ferocious creatures that we are warned to steer well clear of them. But in the world of children’s fiction books, you’ll be hard pushed to find a better friend than a bear. I’ve picked out five classic books about bears, I’ve probably missed some really important ones, but these are my bear necessities of children’s books about bears.

Five Classic Books About Bears

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is a classic picture book by Eric Carle and Bill Martin Jr. It is wonderfully rhythmic and is packed full of Eric Carle’s beautiful and iconic illustrations. It’s a great way to get pre-schoolers talking about animals and colours. Plus you’re guaranteed to get “brown bear, brown bear” stuck in your head.

Children’s Books: Five Classic Books About Bears

Goldilocks and the Three Bears – there are many versions of this 19th century fairy tale, but it’s the classic tale of Goldilocks, a girl who finds a cabin in the woods belonging to the three bears. She can’t help but creep in and explore – she sits in their chairs, eats some of their porridge, and sleeps in one of their beds. When the bears return and discover her, she jumps up, runs out and is never seen again. Goldilocks and the Three Bears is a classic which will never go out of fashion!

Paddington by Michael Bond has recently been made into a hit film, but the book is always worth returning to. This friendly bear from deepest, darkest Peru, dressed in a blue duffle coat and wearing a hat stuffed with marmalade sandwiches. Paddington has become a classic character in English children’s literature. These beautifully illustrated, easy reading books make the perfect bedtime story to share with your children.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury is undoubtedly a modern classic. The story follows a family on an adventure, through swishy-swashy swathes of grass and across muddy fields. They get a bit wet and a bit cold, and when they finally find a bear, they’re a little bit scared. I always feel a bit sorry for the bear at the end, I think all he wants is a friend. It’s a beautiful story, fantastic to read and the textures of the grass, the mud and the wind are so evocative and great talking points for you and your child.

Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne is such a classic, no books about bears collection should be without him. This adorable and quietly wise bear is loved by adults and children alike. There are a million different Winnie the Pooh books available; from pop-up books to philosophy books for adults; but you can’t get any better than the original.

These classic books about bears are to my mind, essential reading for children and adults alike. There’s something friendly and cuddly about these bears, some of them are a bit edgy, but on the whole they just want to be your friend. Have I left any classic bears behind?
