Well known for looking at the gloomy side of things, Winnie the Pooh’s pal Eeyore is also a philosopher of sorts—so that means he’s more capable of seeing life in an optimistic light than he would like to admit. This doleful donkey shares a soulful smile as he expresses love—in his own way and with the help of a fanciful heart. An authentic yet unique interpretation designed by folk artists Jim Shore, this irresistible piece captures both the charm of Walt Disney’s Winnie the Pooh animated featurettes and also the hand-crafted look of a quaint wood carving that is so pleasantly appropriate for the Hundred Acre Wood setting in which Eeyore lives. His tail—which was lovingly nailed back in place (again) by Christopher Robin—complete with its signature red bow, while Jim Shore’s signature folk-art inspired designs and country-style icons are integrated into this hand-painted work. Add this lovable donkey to your collection—Eeyore will thank you for noticing him and you’ll be glad you did.
