Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin is a fictional character in the Winnie the Pooh books.

He is a young boy who is one of Winnie the Pooh's best friends. His other stuffed animals are Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit, Kanga, Roo, Owl and Eeyore.

He was based upon the author A. A. Milne's own son, for whom the books were written. As an adult, Christopher Robin Milne was unhappy with the use of his name, because it led people to identify him with his father's fictional character.
