Celebrating his 80th birthday in 2006, Winnie the Pooh was born when Christopher Robin, the son of British author A.A. Milne, renamed his own teddy bear "Winnie" after a bear by the same name that lived in the London zoo. Drawing inspiration from his son and his son's stuffed animals, Milne's first Winnie the Pooh story was published in 1926 complete with illustrations by E.H. Shepard. Today, Winnie the Pooh is a world famous bear, and Royal Doulton honors the original stories and illustrations with hand-painted stoneware figures.
