The much requested and anticipated classic range of Disney Winnie the Pooh and friends is now available wholesale at Baby Brands Direct. The pastel range of high quality plush includes Winnie the Pooh and his close friends: Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger. The embroidered detailing on each item, selected colours and design are based on the Hunderd Acre Wood classic tales and pay homage to both author A.A. Milnne and illustrator E.H. Shepard.
The 100 Acre Wood is based on a specific part of the real life 500 Acre wood at Ashdown Forest, UK, and is the part where Pooh and his friends live. It is also regularly visited by Chrisopher Robin who accompanies the group on their many adventures which often lead them out of their area of the woods.
Rainbow Designs has created an equisite collection of baby toys in each of the characters in the form of a comforter, ring rattle and 20cm toy each bearing the Hundred Acre logo. Made from premium soft fabrics, with delicate embroidery, the items are suitable from birth, hand washable and make for ideal gifts and irresistable nursery additions.
The Disney ring rattles are approximately 12cm and include a character head with tangible ears and arms. The comforters feature a texture frontage for sensory stimulation and two knotted corners that are handy for teething comfort, as well as tangible arms, tail and sweet character head.
The healthy 20cm sized plush cuddly toy will be a popular choice for many consumers, particularly with the imminent Disney Winnie the Pooh movie release. Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore all feature textured frontal fabric, with matching feet, and Eeyore also boasts a little maine, while Tigger has printed stripy limbs.
Also in the range is the premium Winnie the Pooh bear in 30cm that comes in a distinguished fabric with a longer thread than the plush 20cm bears that makes it ideal for special occasions and cuddles from all ages.
Nursery retailers can expect a surge in demand for the plush bear with a movie planned for launch in early August! The movie, ‘Christopher Robin’, includes the now adult Christopher Robin who is coming under the modern day stresses of work life. He is reunited with old friend Pooh and begins to relearn life’s charms. With a host of famous actors and much publicity this is bound to be another massive hit leading to high demand for the Winne the Pooh range of teddies.
Anthony Temple, Managing Director at Rainbow Designs believes that the new relationship with Disney is a very exciting development for the nursery market in the UK. “We hope that Disney’s classic characters coupled with our extensive experience, knowledge and know-how in the licensed baby and infant soft toy market will prove to be very popular,” added Anthony.
This Disney Classic Pooh collection by Rainbow Designs joins the already successful ranges by the manufacturer including Elmer, Peter Rabbit, Paddington and The Very Hungry Caterpillar available at trade price within the wholesale portfolio at Baby Brands Direct.
