Winnie-the-Pooh is a fictional anthropomorphic teddy bear created by AA Milne. The first collection of his stories were in the book Winnie-the-Pooh (1926), and this was followed by The House at Pooh Corner (1928). He named the character Winnie-the-Pooh after a teddy bear owned by his son, Christopher Robin Milne, who was the basis for the character Christopher Robin. The rest of Christopher Robin Milne’s toys – Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, and Tigger – were also incorporated into Milne’s stories. Two more characters, Owl and Rabbit, were created by Milne’s imagination. Here at Jammy Toast, we are pleased to bring you some of his tales which have made Pooh probably the most famous bear in the world

Iam a pretty easing going guy, ask anyone. I tend to do anything for an easy life and so if someone starts moaning and causing me ear-ache or stress then I will normally go along with their wishes thus alleviating the stress. Easy. So lately, Andreaa has been bending my ear because she wants Winnie The Pooh to be featured on Jammy Toast. She says she prefers Pooh to Paddington. Now I always felt as a child that AA Milne’s style of writing was quite confusing and, although I loved the films, I never really got into the books. However, as an adult I revisited them and really began to appreciate them for the classics they are. So perhaps Andreaa is right, perhaps we should give Pooh a try.

We follow quite a wide range of sports here at Jammy Toast. With over 250 bears, you can imagine the diversity of tastes when it comes to sporting events but one of the most followed has to be The World Pooh Sticks Championships. However, organisers of the event – The Rotary Club of Oxford Spires – are currently looking for a move after it has been held on the River Thames at Day’s Lock in Little Wittenham for the past 31 years. They say “logistics” at the site have now become difficult due to a change in the use of land and hope a new venue can be found near Oxford, Abingdon, Didcot, Wallingford or Witney.

One of the most famous illustrations of Winnie the Pooh has sold for £314,500 at auction – three times its original estimate. EH Shepard’s drawing of the bear playing Poohsticks with Piglet and Christopher Robin was first published in 1928. The ink drawing, which featured in AA Milne’s second book, The House At Pooh Corner, had been in a private collection since the 1970s. The famed drawing, entitled “For a long time they looked at the river beneath them…” is set in chapter six of the second Milne book, which was called “In which Pooh invents a new game and Eeyore joins in”.
