3. How many of these "beary" fun facts did you know about Winnie the Pooh and his friends?
A. A. Milne actually based his work on some very real stuffed animals—those of Milne's son, Christopher Robin Milne.
Milne gave his son a toy bear for his first birthday on Aug. 21, 1921. But that bear wasn't named Winnie: he was initially called Edward. The name Winnie came later, from a brown bear that Christopher visited in the London Zoo.
Harry Colebourn, a Canadian lieutenant and veterinary surgeon, had brought that bear cub to England at the beginning of World War I and named her for the city of Winnipeg, leaving her at the London Zoo when his unit left for France.
The actual Winnie was a girl bear
The Pooh part of the name actually came from a swan
The illustrations in the book were actually inspired by illustrator E. H. Shepard's son's stuffed bear, Growler
Most of the locations from the imaginary world were based on a forest near Milne's country home
The original plush toys can be seen at the New York Public Library, except for Roo (which Christopher lost)
The adventures of this popular bear have been translated into 50 different languages, including Yiddish, Afrikaans, and Esperanto
The Latin translation, in 1960, is the only Latin book to ever earn a spot on The New York Times best-seller list
Winnie the Pooh is now one of Disney's most popular characters of all time-- Disney purchased the motion picture rights in 1961
