Film Synopsis

Disney returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh.” Featuring the timeless charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very little brain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo – and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Ever have one of those days where you just can’t win, Eeyore?” asks Pooh. Owl sends the whole gang on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some honey. Disney’s all-new “Winnie the Pooh” movie is inspired by three stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art.

A Peek at a Winnie the Pooh Baby Nursery

Winnie the Pooh fans that want to decorate their baby’s nursery with a Winnie the Pooh theme sometimes look for a little inspiration for the design of the room. Here is a video that gives parents some ideas to use when it comes time to decorating the baby’s nursery with Winnie the Pooh. There is no audio in the video, but the visuals should be all that you need to get some design ideas. This nursery looks like it is made for two because there are two cribs.

Although the family did purchase Winnie the Pooh baby bedding for the nursery, it is still in the packaging in the video. The walls are decorated with some Winnie the Pooh decorations, both appliques and wall hangings are made use of in the baby nursery. They also made use of a Winnie the Pooh window valence and a Winnie the Pooh wall border.
