Winnie the Pooh Costumes Over The Years

There have been several Winnie costumes used over the years starting in 1966 after Disney licensed the rights from Stephen Slesinger to market Winnie the Pooh merchandise.

 

The first costume, as did many of the other Disney characters, had an oversized head. The arms were attached to the body but were not accessible to the "cast member". His ears could be wiggled from inside. He had an open-mouth smile.

I would be honored and humbled to “take care of the collection” and make it part of history by adding it to the Guinness World Record Largest Pooh Collection.
