Hundred Acre Woods WALL MAP featuring Pooh & Friends

Hallmark stores are almost becoming as good as, or better than, The Disney Store for offering great Disney treasures! I kid you not.

Take a look at what we just picked up recently:

15″ W x 15″ H x 1 1/2″ D

This great reproduction of the Hundred Acre Wood map can stand or be hung, which is what we have done with it. It features all of your favorite characters from the A. A. Milne’s classic Pooh stories. Here are closer looks at each corner of the piece:

The houses of Rabbit, Kanga, and Owl

Christopher Robin’s house

Notice that the compass has the letters spelling out Pooh’s name instead of the cardinal points of North, East, South, and West.

Winnie the Pooh’s house (or Mr. Sander’s, depending on who you ask)

Eeyore’s gloomy place… er, house

The only omission is Piglet’s house. Poor little guy! But he shouldn’t feel too bad as Tigger is missing altogether! Most of the other main attractions of the Hundred Acre Wood are represented here.

In conclusion, kudos to Hallmark for offering such wonderful things. And to Christopher Robin we say: Work on your spelling!

Magic Kingdom Attraction Guide – Winnie the Pooh

For my family, this attraction is a little beyond our time.  With a soon to be 14 year old, bouncing in a Hunny Pot just isn’t at the top of her attraction list.  However, that doesn’t mean that we don’t experience it for the nostalgia effect every now and again!  Since this attraction is indoors, and features many of the scenes from the movie, it can be a great way to cool off from the blistering summer sun of Florida!  It’s a slow moving ride, so there aren’t any fear factors based on that, and the gentle bouncing will probably excite all of the younger audience. One thing I like is the way part of the story is outlined in book form on the walls of the queue as you approach the ride vehicles, like the picture below.
