Rainbow Designs Bears Winnie the Pooh & Friends
We have a great collection of Winnie the Pooh plush toys here which would be lovely gifts for little ones. These soft toys have been made by Rainbow Designs, who are by now one of the most highly regarded creators of soft character toys around. Winnie the Pooh is just one of the many legendary franchises which Rainbow Designs have the pleasure of turning into adorable soft toys. The range here includes not only Pooh bear, but also his friends such as Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet. These soft toys are suitable from birth, so they can be long lasting companions that your little one will grow up with through the years.
Winnie the Pooh has been an iconic character, one who exists deep within the consciousness of the British public, since 1926 when A. A. Milne's book 'Winnie-the-Pooh' was published. The four volumes of Pooh stories were illustrated by the illustrator E. H. Shephard, also known for his work in 'The Wind in the Willows'. The books were in part inspired by the beautiful location of Ashdown Forest, which is near to the house Milne moved to when he left London for the countryside of East Sussex. From 1966 onwards, the Disney era then gave Winnie the Pooh an even wider audience, with families watching Pooh and his friends on the big screen.
Classic Winnie the Pooh soft toy
The warmth of this character is represented beautifully in these classic style plush toys. The toys are close to the original illustrations of this loveable bear by E. H. Shephard, rather than the later Disney adaptations. Take a look through the collection and you will see Winnie the Pooh in a number of different stances. Our particular favourite is Winnie the Pooh sitting down on a chair with Piglet on his knee.
Winnie the Pooh and friends
Each toy is made from the highest quality plush, textured fabric, so they will be perfect for babies to snuggle with. As well as being a soothing presence, they will also be engaging for the little one, as some of the designs even have a rattle when you shake them. As mentioned above, this is not just Pooh who is being represented in this collection, but also Winnie the Pooh's friends. You will be able to purchase such designs as Eeyore ring rattles and Tigger soft toys that will be lots of fun for young children and babies.
