January 18 is author A.A. Milne’s birthday and in honor of that, it’s been designated Winnie the Pooh Day. We put together this list of Pooh-inspired fun to help you celebrate the famous, honey-loving bear and all his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, right here in Los Angeles.

Throw a Teddy Bear Party

What kids (and kids at heart) don't love a cuddly stuffed friend? The characters in A.A. Milne's classic tales were inspired by his own son's adventures with his stuffed animal friends, so why not throw a stuffed animal party and create some new friends for your own adventurous tots to play with. No need to hit the mall to build a teddy bear when you can make one in your own backyard with Johnny McStuff mobile teddy bear parties. Kids can choose from different cuddly animals to stuff and cherish forever.
