I know this might be a little confusing ... but as of yesterday my April 8, 2017 Guinness World Record #GWR submission to reverify my collection was approved. The official count now stands at 14,314 unique Pooh collectibles (even though I am just a few away from 18K).
Some might ask -- "but if you have just under 18,000 why is the record for ONLY 14,314?"
Once a year I may choose to keep my record current and recount and resubmit my collection database for verification. Usually this takeabout 2 months for GWR to verify that all the items are uniquely different. This time is took a bit longer - I am guessing new records take priority over resubmitted records.
But, the exciting news is it is official - I am STILL the cRaZiEsT Pooh collector and have a certificate to prove it!
