In addition to tie-ins with products like Wheat and Rice Honeys Cereal, he and his friends have been merchandised and revived in films, TV and records. Pooh had already been featured on over two dozen Disneyland Records when the 45 RPM coloring book and record set, Winnie the Pooh for President was released. This was not his first campaign.
