Disney first bought rights to Winnie-The-Pooh in 1961. In 1998, the Garrick Club sold Disney the rights to all of A. A. Milne's characters until the copyright expires in 2026. On March 4, 2001, the Sunday Times of London reported that Disney paid an estimated $340-to-$350 million for the rights to the royalty stream, as well as for future use of the characters in any media, from the A. A. Milne Trust.

The original Winnie the Pooh and Friends (stuffed animals) are on display in the Central Children's Room at the Donnell Library Center, part of the New York Public Library.
