Winnie the Pooh Personal Bank Checks

By Alan Plastin

Both children and adults have been enjoying the adventures of Winnie the Pooh, along with his good friends Eyeore, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, Roo, Piglet, and Christopher Robin, for more than 70 years now. A couple of different generations have gotten to know the wonderment of the Hundred Acre Wood and the adventures that it can bring. If you love Pooh and Company and would like something different for your personal checks, then you might want to consider purchasing Winnie the Pooh checks.

Winnie the Pooh was popularized in the 1926 AA Milne book Winnie-the-Pooh. He showed up again in The House at Pooh Corner in 1928. Before that, he made his first appearance in a 1924 poem. In 1960, when the book was translated into Latin, it became the first foreign language book to show up on the New York Times bestseller's list.

Winnie the Pooh was actually based on a real bear and Christopher Robin was a real boy. Christopher Robin was AA Milne's real life son and Winnie the Pooh was his real life teddy bear. Christopher Robin was responsible for naming the other characters as well, save for Owl and Rabbit who were added by Disney.

In addition, the Hundred Acre Wood is also based on a real place. It was based on AA Milne's home in Ashdown Forest, located in East Sussex, England. The name "Hundred Acre Wood" probably derives from the nearby Five Hundred Acre Wood which has some of the same places that are referenced in the stories.

There are more than a few Winnie the Pooh check series that are obtainable. One popular series contains 4 checks with a different image on each one. The first one shows Pooh by himself, the second one contains an image of Pooh and Eyeore, the third one features Pooh and Tigger, and the last one shows Pooh and Piglet. A coordinating checkbook cover can be bought with the checks that has "Pooh" written across the front in large, bright letters set against a yellow daisy filled background.

Another popular series shows whimsical images of Winnie the Pooh with his best friends from the Hundred Acre Woods. Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore are all featured on these checks as well, although the colors are a bit more muted from the first ones.

Finally, you can also buy Classic Winnie the Pooh checks. These include the original illustrations of Pooh and his friends. These checks also illustrate Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger but Christopher Robin is incorporated also. If you want something with a more traditional feel, these might be your best bet.

You can usually obtain corresponding checkbook covers, address labels, and contact cards to harmonize with your checks.

If you would like to save money on your checks then you should consider ordering them online. Not only are they convenient, but you can also save as much as 50% off the cost that you ordinarily would have spent at your local bank. In addition, by ordering from a reputable site, you have access to hundreds of different designs so you don't have to worry about them not having the images that you were looking for. - 31382
