In the early 1960s, Walt Disney acquired the rights to A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh character. 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 modernised for his first screen appearance in “Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree”, a 1966 theatrical short film. 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 1960s through to today.

In celebration of 50 years of this contemporary look, Steiff have beautifully captured this iconic design. Made from the finest yellow mohair, this spectacular studio size version of everyone's favourite bear wears his trademark red shirt popularised in the Disney films and television programs. 

This special Studio Winnie the Pooh is a limited edition of only 500 pieces and comes with his numbered certificate presented in a Steiff dustbag.
