Winnie the Pooh is a beloved character first created by A.A. Milne. The first stories appeared in a book in 1926 called "Winnie-the-Pooh," which was followed a couple of years later by "The House on Pooh Corner." The Winnie the Pooh character was based upon a real bear who was at The London Zoo. The bear had been purchased from a hunter by Canadian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn who left the bear at the London Zoo while he was in France during World War I and eventually he donated Winnie (named for Colebourn's hometown of Winnipeg) to the zoo, where he became a beloved attraction to the many patrons of the zoo, including Milne. Milne got the "Pooh" part of the name from a swan who was named "Pooh."

Although the character was popular in book form, he became even more popular after Milne's widow sold the rights to Disney. Disney produced a television show, some featurettes and several full-feature films around the characters of Pooh and his friends. Winnie the Pooh snow globes are popular collectibles with fans of the characters of Ashdown Forest.
