Fun Fact 

See the doggie tissue box behind Victor? Doesn’t it look familiar? 

Victor’s poodle tissue box was inspired by Yuzuru Hanyu’s Pooh Tissue Box! 

For those of you who don’t know the backstory on this beautiful tissue box: Figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu always had a miniature pooh bear along with his tissue boxes during his junior days, 2009-2010 season. Then a simple pooh cover with tissues coming out of his nose was introduced in the 2010-2011 season. Then finally, the Pooh tissue box was born in the 2011-2012 season and they have been inseparable ever since. Most of the times, Pooh is seen beside Yuzuru’s coach cheering him on in every competition outside the rink. Funny fact to go along with it, when Yuzu moved to Toronto, his coach Brian Orser stated in an interview, that when he saw Yuzuru, he said, “I always thought he was that weird kid with the Winnie the pooh doll. Now I’m that kid’s coach…and I have to carry it.”



Sixteen years ago today, I chose this out of a toy store at Disneyworld as my birthday present. It is again my birthday, so I’m featuring this well loved Bluebird Winnie the Pooh Hunny Pot playset! It really is extremely cute, with tons of parts to fiddle with, perfect for creative play. The bees and balloons spins around, rocking chair rocks, doors open. It closes up into a compact hunny pot, nice and tidy. I just love the small details and figures, just what I’d expect from the previous Polly Pockets.

We’ve had some good times!
