The Original Winnie-the-Pooh Turns 90! Send Him a Birthday Card!

The "real" stuffed Winnie-the-Pooh bear is turning 90 this year! He is currently on display at the New York Public Library. We invite you to send him a birthday card to help him celebrate such a momentous birthday occasion.

Birthday cards can be mailed to

Winnie-the-Pooh was purchased from Harrod's department store as a birthday gift for Christopher Milne in 1921 from his parents. His original name was not Winnie-the-Pooh, but Edward Bear. He has been on display at the NYPL since 1987.
