Did you know that the Harrods toy department dates back to the 1880s and is now regarded as one of the best in the world? BUY NOW
But perhaps what many people don’t realise is that back in 1921, Christopher Robin’s mother Daphne Milne brought her son a stuffed teddy bear when they visited Harrods. After a trip to London Zoo, the little boy named it Winne after a bear discovered there. Thanks to his mother creating voices and personalities for other characters, soon Christopher Robin and Winne-the-Pooh became best friends. Inspired by his son’s friendship with the bear, A.A Milne turned him into a fictional character in his beloved storybooks making Winnie-the-Pooh famous worldwide.
As well as action figures, dolls, games, puzzles, and Winne-the-Pooh and the equally famous traditional My Harrods teddy, Harrods children’s department isn’t just filled with toys. You’ll find everything from prams, travel systems and clothing (ranging from newborn to 16 years) and accessories from luxury brands including Emporio Armani, Polo Ralph Lauren, Paul Smith Junior, Burberry and Fendi.
