I had the pleasure to see ‘Winnie the Pooh’,exploring a classic exhibition at the V&A at the beginning of this month and it’s open till the 8th April. English artist & book illustrator, Ernest Howard Shepard and English author Alan Alexander Milne, worked together to create
Winnie the pooh in 1924 and then this was followed by ‘The House at Pooh Corner’ in 1928.

 

A A Milne wrote the books for his son Christopher Robin after World War 1, where they lived on the Ashdown Forest in East.Sussex. Many people still go & throw Pooh sticks off the bridge near Hartfield, East Sussex.

This multi-sensory and playful exhibition explores the magical world of Winnie-the-Pooh – one of the most adored fictional characters of all time

The moment you walk into the Exhibition,you’re greeted by the charming illustrations,and multi sensory which fills the studio with noises from the forest & digital running water on Pooh bridge,and the lighting makes it so relaxing. You can throw your stick in the river and
play the stick game. No matter how old you are, it takes you back to that happy place, when reading Winnie the Pooh as a child. People of all ages, still engage with the stories and charming  illustrations from their childhood, and then seeing the modern generation being captivated. It was full of delightful hidden small doors, tree house slides, which brings utter happiness to all ages to enjoy perfectly.
