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

We have often wondered here at Jammy Toast just where did AA Milne come up with the idea for Winnie the Pooh. It turns out that although AA Milne wrote the stories, it was actually his son Christopher Robin who named the bear. Winnie the black bear was brought to England in 1914 by a Canadian veterinarian who had rescued the bear and named her after his hometown of Winnipeg. He originally named the bear Winnipeg but wanted something shorter, so chose Winnie. She was later sent to London Zoo where Christopher Robin saw her and named his teddy bear after her. The rest, as they say, is history.
