The Hundred Acre Wood where Winnie the Pooh, lives, plays and frolics is a magical place. A place that has given so much joy to generations of children since the first A.A. Milne book was published in 1926. And while the stories and characters stay the same decade after decade, the way we interact with them changes with the times. The newest way to interact with Pooh and his pals? With the stunning and seriously awesome Winnie the Pooh Wonder and Wander app.
In the app (for iPhone and iPads), which just happens to be FREE, you and your kids will be able to explore Hundred Acre Wood in a whole new way. Using beautifully executed animation and images, kids of all ages can interact with the characters and wander around Pooh’s world from changing it from day to night to rustling the trees and watching the leaves fall. And this app meant a whole lot to me, because I got to wonder and wander around the Hundred Acre Wood in real life.
I didn’t know until about two years ago that the Hundred Acre Wood, the lush forest that plays such a strong part of A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh series, was a real place. As soon as I found out that Milne had used the Ashdown Forest in England’s East Sussex as the model for Pooh and his pals environment, I wanted to go. And as luck would have it, I did! In support of Disney’s amazing Winnie-the-Pooh I went to the real place, wondered, wandered and was totally in awe.
