Mini Winnie the Pooh Zoo Crew


These little articulated rubbery PVC figures of the old school Winnie the Pooh costume characters were part of a Magic Kingdom playset collection at Sears in the late 1980s. These figures are small (about 2 inches tall) and rather cheaply made, but the likenesses of the characters is pretty much spot-on. This set was only available through the Sears Catalog, and included Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, and Cinderella. There was a big Main Street set you could get with Mickey and Minnie, too. This collection, like many Sears items at the time, was not very popular and not made very well.

But I love these little figures, and the costumes they are based on.

  1. I remember that pooh costume very well! The cast member's head was up inside the honey pot and they looked out through the letters. What cool little items!

  2. Did Pooh ever wear a honey pot on his head in the animated films? No matter--it's groovy!

    I'm glad I came across your Electrical Parade story. Many years ago, a friend of mine gave me some of their old Walt Disney World pictures, and one of them was a partial picture of the Amos Slade Electrical Parade unit. I never knew about these Fox and the Hound floats--I would love to see pictures of Tod and Copper from this parade.

  3. Hey Dan. I just sent a pic of Todd to your email address. Have never seen a photo of Copper though. I only have the memory of what he looked like from seeing him 29 years ago!

  6. Yes, these are among my favorites. I'd like PVC figures of all the old costume characters.
