Pooh and friends.

Pooh and friends.

The teddy bear on which Winnie-the-Pooh was based may be returning to Britain for a home-coming visit for the first time since 1976.
Angela Montefinise, director of media relations at the New York Public Library where the visiting public can currently view the bear, said the curators were “absolutely open” to letting Pooh travel provided he was taken good care of while on loan.She stated: “These dolls are very fragile. It is our responsibility to ensure their preservation and protection so they can continue to be viewed by the public.”
Christopher Robin Milne, the son of English author A.A. Milne and a character in the children’s stories, apparently intended for Pooh and friends and all of Christopher Robin’s other childhood toys to stay in New York.
But British fans of the children’s stories have been clamouring for the bear’s return for several years.
More recently, residents of Hartfield, the village from where Pooh hails, and notable English writers have joined the appeal. Gyles Brandreth, broadcaster and writer, said “for some of us our childhood is never over, so we’d love to have him back – if only for a holiday.”
