New Disney Collectible! 50th Anniversary "Contemporary" Pooh.
Steiff Mohair Winnie The Pooh Bear, Handmade in Germany by Margarete Steiff GmbH with the world-famous "Button In Ear" trademark: a mark of absolute top quality. Pooh has a gold-plated "Button In Ear".
In the early 1900's, Walt Disney was able to acquire the rights to A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh. Because Walt fondly recalled reading the Pooh stories to his daughters, he was pleased to bring the character into the Disney fold. Under his supervision, Pooh's design was "modernized" for his first screen appearance in "Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree", a 1966 theatrical short subject. Pooh's new "look" in this film would become the definitive version of the character for a new generation of fans - those born from the 1960's through today.
In celebration of 50 years of the "contemporary" Pooh, Steiff proudly
present their first-ever version of the modernized character. Made of yellow mohair
and five way jointed, our 1966- look Pooh wears the trademark red shirt popularized
in the Disney films and television programs.
