    I've enjoyed Pooh - reading it to younger sibs, then children and, later, grandchildren. The stories are timeless.

    I love Winnie the Pooh and his friends. I think Tigger is my favorite. I wish I had as much energy as him! Thanks for the trip down memory lane...

    One of my older sisters told me that her husband called me Eeyore when I was very small.
My favorite is Tigger..... I just love his HooHoo!

    Nothing personal against Pooh, but my ex-wife and her g/f used to think of themselves as "Pooh and Piglet", so I've just had a hard time getting into these characters anymore...

  I always felt sorry for Piglet. Often he was Pooh's sidekick and seemed to be the one to suffer from Pooh's decision's. EG The Heffalump Trap.

Did enjoy reading Benjamin Hoff's books The Tao of Pooh and The Te of Piglet.

    I call my son Pooh Bear because he was so cute with the perfect round head.
He loves hugs too!
