Winnie the Pooh Fisher Price Little People

I've been a fan of Winnie the Pooh since before I can remember. Some of the earliest pictures of me have me wearing Pooh Bear pajamas, and back when we listened to those little records and books that said "turn the page when the chimes ring," the Winnie the Pooh ones were some of my favorites.

As I got older, I learned to appreciate the original books by A.A. Milne, and I find them as charming as the Disney animated adaptations. When I was on a mission for the LDS Church in Germany, I read all of the Milne stories "auf deutsch" as a sort of language study, and whether it's in English or German, I love the words.

When I decided to make some Winnie the Pooh Fisher Price Little People, at first I was going to make them in the Disney style. Then I decided that making them in the "Classic Pooh" style of Ernest Shepard's illustrations would be more challenging, so I went down that road.

Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore

Tigger, Owl, Rabbit, Roo, and Kanga. And a blinding flash.

The whole Hundred Acre Wood Gang. They'll mess you up. And your Hunny.
