While exhibition-goers can marvel at E.H. Shepard’s famed Poohsticks pen and ink illustration, which will be displayed alongside the original pencil sketch, or listen to a charming 1929 recording of A.A. Milne reading Winnie-the-Pooh, younger visitors to Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic will enjoy the storytelling trees, dressing-up areas and a ‘picnic’ drawing table. Honey lovers (or should that be hunny lovers for those Walt Disney fans out there?) will also be in their element, as the V&A is also selling homemade honey collected from the hives on its South Kensington rooftop. Let’s just hope the bees don’t get suspicious.
