 Jorge Rodriguez says that he used to watch Winnie the Pooh when he was a child.

“I remember watching Winnie the Pooh at 3 years old, time does sure past by fast,” Rodriguez said.

Jorge says he does have a special relationship with a toy of his.

“Yes, I actually do. I had it for such a long time,” Rodriguez said.

Jorge doesn’t know if Winnie the Pooh has become irrelevant.

“Maybe, I don’t really know because I don’t follow it nor care about it anymore,” Rodriguez said.

Jorge says that he doesn’t watch Winnie the Pooh anymore.

“No, why would I watch it?,” Rodriguez said.

Jorge says the reason that Winnie the Pooh was a special part of his childhood  was because he grew up watching him.

“Because it was my childhood, I still remember watching Winnie the Pooh as a child,” Rodriguez said.

Brandon Camacho says he used to watch Winnie the pooh very early in the morning.

“I used to watch it around 7 or 8 in the morning because I used to wake up super early, mainly for school,” Camacho said.

Brandon says that he has the same relationship as Christopher Robin with Pooh but with a Spiderman plushie. 

“Yes, I remember my mother gave me a Spiderman plushy for my sixth birthday and I would always have it with me, it was very important because my mom gave it to me and because Spiderman is my favorite hero,” Camacho said.

Brandon says that Winnie the Pooh has become part of brands, for example just now a valentines brand which you see in stores now and there.

“No, I think it’s still very relevant nowadays because they have him for every flower store as plush or in gift cards. I believe it has evolved  especially throughout the years in the form of valentines gifts,” Camacho said.

Brandon says the reason that Winnie the Pooh was special because he got lots of memories of him in his childhood.

“Well, in some way Winnie the pooh has become special to me for being part of my childhood and now that I look back into those memories, Winnie the pooh is accompanied by the great times I had,” Camacho said.

Daisy Cuellar says she used to watch it around five years old and also had the movies.

“I used to watch it like when I was five. One of the main reasons I started watching it was because I had the movies in VCR,” Cuellar said.

Daisy says she can’t remember but her mother told her she did have a toy that would always be with her.

“Not that I remember but my mom tells me that when I was a baby, I had a frog that I couldn’t be without, and I still have it to this day,” Cuellar said.

Daisy says that he became an unseen character because of the new stuff overshadowing it.

Yes, I think it has become irrelevant because not many people got to see the originals unless they looked for them, it’s not that important anymore to the public,” Cuellar said.

Daisy says that the reason that Winnie was special was for it was part of her childhood.

“It was part of my childhood, I grew up watching him as well as other children shows,” Cuellar.
