Introduce your kid to the original Winnie-the-Pooh with these toys and more

'Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey' proves clickbait is no longer just for the internet

It's been nearly a 100-year wait for the adorable creatures of the Hundred Acre Wood to fall into the public domain. That means all the beloved characters — except Tigger, who still has a couple more years remaining on his copyright — belong to everyone. While that would seem to be a great thing, the first major work to come out is a horror film starring a depraved, feral hybrid with abandonment issues. The controversy surrounding this movie is not unwarranted. Fortunately, the original Pooh Bear is still around and you can introduce your kids and grandkids to the classic character with these toys, Lego sets, stickers, books and other items.

In this article: Disney Winnie-the-Pooh Plush, Lego Ideas Winnie-the-Pooh Building Set and Melissa & Doug Disney Winnie-the-Pooh Soft and Cuddly Hand Puppets.

The trademark twist of Winnie-the-Pooh

While Winnie-the-Pooh might be in public domain, that doesn't mean there are no restrictions. An author could write their own Winnie-the-Pooh story using the original characters. However, any and all interpretations must be distinctly different from Disney's interpretation; otherwise, the creator risks violating Disney's trademarks in the character. For instance, if your Pooh Bear has a red shirt and no pants, you might get in trouble.

For some, this is good news because it means Disney's interpretation will probably remain the definitive version of Winnie-the-Pooh — the classic will endure. For others (people who wish to use Disney's established elements), it means they'll have to tread carefully to avoid poking the bear, so to speak.
