World’s largest Winnie the Pooh collection belongs to Wisconsin woman




Deb Hoffmann - Guinness World Record Holder of the Largest Winnie the Pooh Collection


WAUKESHA (WKOW/CNN) -- The Guinness World Record for the largest Winnie the Pooh collection belongs to a woman in Wisconsin.

Deb Hoffmann owns more than 20,000 Winnie the Pooh items.

"People call me the crazy Winnie the Pooh lady and I would say that's probably correct I definitely associated with the character," she said.

WTMJ, in Milwaukee, went to her home (to) meet the collector.

Hoffmann lives in Waukesha County and takes pride in each item in her collection.

She started collecting about 30 years ago when she was in her 20s. She had her eye set on a particular Winne the Pooh phone... and the rest is history.

Hoffmann thinks the entire collection is worth over $1 million.
