Language Development

Have you heard the language used in Winnie The Pooh films? Not only is the British accent delightful, the words and grammar used are impeccable. I don’t know any other children’s animated film that uses words like ‘blustery’, ‘complexity’ or ‘predicament’. Such a wonderful way for your little one to expand his or her vocabulary don’t you think?


Absolutely Lovely Songs

I personally love all the songs in Winnie The Pooh films. They’re delightful and so catchy. If your child enjoys music, he or she should really enjoy Pooh Bear and all his friends singing and dancing in the 100 Acre Wood.


The music in Winnie The Pooh films has been praised for its ability to captivate children's attention and keep them engaged. In addition to being catchy, the songs also have simple and easy-to-remember lyrics, making it easy for children to sing along. The music in these films has also been found to have a positive impact on children's emotional development, as it often portrays themes of friendship, kindness, and imagination. Furthermore, the songs in Winnie The Pooh films have been known to have a calming effect on children, making it a great choice for a relaxing movie night.


Lessons on Friendship

“A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside”, says Pooh Bear. Friendship and the importance of friends is something your child will definitely take away from watching Winnie The Pooh. Pooh Bear’s friendship with Christopher Robin and Piglet is heartwarming.


In addition to teaching about friendship, Winnie the Pooh also teaches valuable lessons about kindness, honesty, and perseverance. The characters in the movie, such as Tigger and Eeyore, each have their own unique personalities and flaws, but they still support and care for each other. This teaches children the importance of accepting others for who they are and being there for them in times of need. Furthermore, the movie's simple and heartwarming storytelling can also help children develop their emotional intelligence and empathy. Overall, Winnie the Pooh is a great movie for children to watch as it not only entertains but also teaches important life lessons.


Teaches about Sharing

Pooh Bear and his friends all live together in the 100 Acre Wood and through their many adventures, you see how they share what they have. Be it Piglet giving up his house to Owl or Rabbit sharing his lunch with Pooh. This is an important lesson for our children to learn isn’t it?


In addition to teaching children about friendship and kindness, Winnie the Pooh also emphasizes the importance of sharing. The characters in the story, including Pooh Bear, Piglet, and Rabbit, all demonstrate the value of sharing with one another. This lesson is particularly relevant in today's society where sharing and cooperation are vital skills for children to learn. The 100 Acre Wood serves as a microcosm for our world, showing children that sharing and helping others can bring joy and strengthen relationships. By watching Winnie the Pooh, children can develop a better understanding of the importance of sharing and how it can positively impact their lives and the lives of those around them.


Talks about Self Esteem

When Christopher Robin tells Pooh that “you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think”, you realize how wise these words are. If there is one thing your child could learn from Winnie The Pooh, let it be this. A mantra for life.


Problem Solving

Pooh Bear and his friends tend to get into many a sticky spot (mostly because of his love for honey). And they usually manage to find creative solutions to their problems and that is what is important for children to learn too – out of the box thinking.


Intelligent Jokes and Puns

This is one children’s animation that doesn’t hold back on intelligent wordplay. You’ll be surprised and delighted to find some very witty puns and jokes in the seemingly innocent dialogue. Watch Winnie The Pooh with your child and expose him or her to the world of words.


Wonderful Illustrations

The illustrations in all the Winnie The Pooh movies are charming and old school (especially in the original movies). They make a very pleasant change from all the digital animation going around!


Pooh Bear

No other reason is needed really to watch Winnie The Pooh other than Pooh Bear himself. This ‘stuffed with fluff’ and ‘Bear with not much brain’ is the most adorable little friend any child could have.

Winnie The Pooh has been a children’s favorite all over the world for decades now. The simple messages of friendship, caring and love that Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Owl, Rabbit, Tigger, Kanga, Roo and Christopher Robin deliver are some of the most poignant and wise words your child will hear. So the next time your child wants to watch cartoons, make him or her watch Winnie The Pooh and you won’t regret it.
