Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this delightful classic film contains little objectionable content. A few scenes involving mild peril -- like when a swarm of bees chase Pooh or when Rabbit is lost in the woods alone -- might frighten very sensitive children. A dream sequence involves Pooh getting pushed around a little bit and shot in the rear with a toy pop gun. Eeyore is famously depressed and self-critical. The movie provides opportunities to discuss different personality types and some iffy decisions that people (or imaginary animals) make.
Tigger bounces on his friends and they don't usually like it. Pooh gets chased by bees. Several scenes show the animals in minor peril -- lost in the woods, stuck in a tree, etc. -- though the problem is always resolved. In one scene Pooh carries a pop-gun, and in another an elephant in Pooh's dream shoots him with a toy gun.
This movie is about friendship and the things friends do for one another, like when Piglet offers his house to Owl and Pooh then offers to share his house with Piglet. The movie also shows a range of emotions that kids can relate to, like anxiety, fear, frustration, and pride. On the down side, the movie does not encourage direct communication.
Pooh merchandise is everywhere.
