When The Walt Disney Company contact you to ask if you’d like to come on board to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Winnie-the-Pooh that’s HUGE, like really HUGE and I must confess to re-reading the email over and over to see if it were right.
Winnie-the-Pooh was a huge part of my childhood, I loved the books and to this day still love a Winnie-the-Pooh quote.
In celebration of Winnie-the-Pooh’s 90th anniversary John Lewis has launched an exclusive stationery set which brings to life the whimsical world of Hundred Acre Wood. Available in-store and online now, this charming collection features the much loved E.H. Shepard classic illustrations with splashes of fluorescent colour. From wobbly lined pages and cute quotes, this stationery range pays homage to the simple joys and iconic Winnie-the-Pooh stories that the world was first introduced to 90 years ago.
The stationery set is not really designed for very little hands like Tiggy’s so we were kindly also gifted a plush toy Winnie-the-Pooh which when I opened, little Tiggy’s eyes lit up and she took him under her wing immediately as in it was tucked under her arm all day and taken everywhere.
Whilst we don’t have our own Hundred Acre Wood we do have some woodland and off Tiggy and I went to take some photographs with our stationery set and plush toy in tow.
As we walked into the woods we were met with a carpet of bluebells which was just so pretty and Tiggy enjoyed playing while I snapped away. We took some bluebells home to make some pretty pictures and Tiggy wanted to “add her own flare” shall we say, hence the pictures throughout this post.
So to the stationery set. We received a delightful desk pad which features an illustration of Winnie the Pooh, Piglet and Christopher Robin alongside the text ‘Exploring the Wood feels a lot like coming home’, an A5 notebook which is a classic design and features illustrations on the cover from the original book, a set of 3 sticky note pads each featuring a different illustration from the original A.A. Milne books, and a charming Winnie the Pooh ballpoint pen which has been decorated with an illustration of Pooh and piglet including the quote ‘Smaller than piglet is quite small, indeed’ and has a lovely charm attached too.
These items are now available on-line and in store and you can purchase yours by clicking HERE.
All that’s left is for me to say a HUGE thank you to The Walt Disney Company, John Lewis Retail and Blue Print Collections, thank you xxx
