Hey Topher! I'm not between the ages of 7 and 12. I'm actually 21! I wanted to tell you what a great Pooh page you have! Keep up the good work.

Hi There! Thank you so much for the wonderful Site. Our kindergarten class has been studying Winnie the Pooh. They each completed a booklet on Pooh Bear and his friends. It has been a really neat experience having the kindergartens using the internet to find information about all the characters. Your site made the project an exciting one.
Thanks again,

Thank you so much for the pooh pages. They especially cheered up my best friend, a true winnie-the-pooh fan,who is pregnant and bed-ridden.

Hi there! I loved the website. I am a big fan of Winnie ther Pooh but am not 7 to 12... actually I'm 19, but there are some things you never grow out of. Keep up the good work!

We think this is a great website!!!!! It's helped us find links to some good web sites. We love Winnie the Pooh. More sites for him would be great! Thanks for listening! (or should we say reading?!!)

Great site! Helped me to write a parody song about Lucky Charms... I write and produce parody songs for a radio syndicator called Premiere Radio Networks in L.A. I'm doing a parody of a tune called "Semi-Charmed Life" by the alternative rock band Third Eye Blind called "Lucky Charms Life."

First of all, coming from a life long fan of cereal who doesn't go a day without at least one bowl, this is a pretty awesome website.

This is the best Winnie-the-Pooh page I have ever seen! This the only web site I have been to that tells me this kind of information. I also like the music, details, and Eeyore!! Eeyore is my favorite. I like Pooh too. I like all of the charactors to make a long letter short. I just wanted you to know that this is my favorite web site!! Your Pooh freak!!,

Your site is awesome. The graphics and design layout is one of the best by far on the web. And the music and quick load time are very refreshing to see and hear. This site is what the web is meant to be for.

Great Website too.

I´m from Iceland. I read about your site in an Swedish newspaper. I think your idea to make an homepage about cereals is great.
Take care.

Topher, You have a great site here. I was taking a break from working on my site and I'm not sure how I ended up here, but I'm glad I did. You have put a lot of work in your site and you should be very proud of what you have done. Thanks and keep up the good work and always, always HAVE FUN!!!

Well done!! I LOVE Tigger! I have 43 tee-shirts, all different, 3 pairs of socks, 4 shorts, 2 sleep shirts, and 5 caps. All just of Tigger!! And I almost forgot, a Tigger tattoo on my left ankle!!

You are brilliant.
And I actually remember Freakies cereal. Thanks for the great site, I will have to link to it.

What a great site! I love pooh; in fact, I am a pooh fanatic. The problem with lots of the sites I have found is that the person who created it knows little about pooh, which makes the site a drag. I like that it had genuine pictures and accurate info.

I just wanted you to know that I am crazy about Winnie-the-Pooh and your web site was wonderful. It told me all about the characters and everything I was ever hoping for. Three cheers for a job well done.
Thank you for my day a lot more pleasant.

I'm an elementary teacher and my second grade class just started a mini-unit on cereal. Since I recently bought my new computer and got on line, I thought I'd try to find some information on "cereal." I was amazed at how much information your site had to offer. I enjoyed reading it as I know my children will. Again, thank you!

Hi...I'm ofer 21 years old from Israel...I love and adore Pooh since I was a kid and still so much, It's hard to describe... I've seen your site and I was sooo impressed that I just had to say a few good words about it...I loved especially the character guide... and the FAQ...how do you know sooo many things about pooh and all the gang? ...I was really impressed by that...still... It's hard to find *really* good sites on the web about Pooh...keep on your so beautiful work..

Regarding our Pau Hana Award... Thanks for all your comments. Many of them have been expressed by some of our folks here. I like to submit (our sites) to you because of your straight forward feedback. Thanks for taking the time! It is great to have a critical review.
Happy Holidays,
Jennifer Dobson

Comments on our Breakfast Cereal Character Guide... You have the best page on the entire internet! No kidding....No exageration! Blueberry Bran Nuclear Smacks! Man...that (cereal creator) was tons of fun!

Our son thinks this is the greatest! It has almost become a tradition that we visit this (Winnie-the-Pooh) web site before we go to bed.
Thanks again,

I absolutely love the page! One of the best I've been to! I love the Pooh song playing in the background. I've placed a bookmark on the page and will visit it frequently. Thanks for the great site!

Hi Topher and (Pau Hana Award) Committee,
Thank you so much for your Pau Hana Award! It is lovely, and I have just finished putting it up on my website on the awards page, with a link back to you. It means a lot to me to have this. I'm glad you enjoyed my page. I also appreciated the comments in your note. The fact that you took the time to look over my site and give me specific feedback means as much to me as the award itself.
Take care, and thanks once again,

My name is Chester and I am 29 years old. I recently just purchased the magazine called "The Web" and saw your ceral addy in it. I have just viewed it and can only say one thing about it. I LOVED IT!!!! Some of the characters in there really brought back some memories. I am gonna e-mail and tell some friends about it. I am glad someone has something good to do with their time. Keep up the good work and I hope you find some of the other characters you are looking for. Thanks...I am also gonna put your page on my homepage when I get done with it.

Hi. This has been by far the happiest, most enjoyable site I have visited in twelve months on the Internet. Can't wait to show the grandchildren (and their grandpa). Do please keep up the good work. All the best.

I really enjoyed your page on Winnie the Pooh and his gang. I'm 14 and still love Pooh. So do my parents. Whenever we go to a river or we always play poohsticks and each one of us in the family have a nickname of one of the characters. I'm Piglet. This page was excellent. The music had added a great touch. Thank You!

Your site was a wonderful trip through time!  You must have put a lot of time and effort in!  I couldn't think of one cereal I ate in the '70s as a kid that wasn't represented on your site.  If you're going to do something, do it right I always say!

"Nice work with the cereal pages and the rest of the site - very clever stuff. I have fond memories of old Cookie Jarvis who was indeed the first character used for Ralston Chocolate Chip Cookie Crisp. As it happens, while I was growing up a friend of the family worked for Ralston in their marketing department and mailed us a *boatload* of manufacturers free sample coupons. For nearly a year Cookie Crisp was on the breakfast table every morning. We ate so much of it that when the coupons ran out my siblings and I were so happy. I doubt that any one of us has eaten Cookie Crisp since. Years later when Cookie Jarvis was replaced, it was almost as if we had lost a family member - almost."Edward J. Pelegrino

"Your Godzilla site was the best site for Everyone!!!"

"I think that you did a great job on the Pooh Bear web page and I really liked how you answered everyone's questions about Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends. You are truely his biggest fan. I didn't know there were real answers to Pooh Bear questions. I have to say that you have done an outstanding job and that you should keep up the great work! Thank you so much for the outstanding web page that you created!"

"I am a huge, lifetime fan of Winnie the Pooh. My classroom theme (community friendship, etc) all relates to pooh and his friends. Your site is one of the best I have ever seen and I am excited to use it with my first and second graders. We will be celebrating A. A. Milne's birthday on Hip Hip Poohray day on Friday, Jan. 15th. Thanks for your site!"

"WOW!! What A GREAT Site!! I happened along your site this evening while doing research on Lucky Charms' marshmallow shapes for our radio program tomorrow morning. I think I spent about an hour looking at every page. I thought I was the only one who remembered a lot of these characters. Thank you for a MOST enjoyable evening!"

"I came to apply for your award and got zipped to your home page and have spent almost an hour! I will be back later tomorrow or the next day and I am bringing my 7 almost 8 year old son! He LOVES Godzilla and will have a blast here and I don't have to watch over his shoulder..THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE WEB A PLACE FOR OUR CHILDREN.

"I think that your site is awesome. Helped me do a research paper for a college English Composition and Rhetoric class. I couldn't find the info any where else. So thanks..."

"I`d like to say that your website is absolutely fabulous! I added it to my favorites. Your information is all correct, and the idea`s you have are so totally creative and well thought out, you must be quite a devoted, sensitive, and intelligent person. I love Winnie the Pooh, and I love your Website, and I really appreciate everything you have there. Very Very Very Sincerely,"

"My 7 yr. old son was given a homework assignment which was all inclusive of varying degrees of difficulty regarding AA Milne's classis piece, Winnie The Pooh. Your site gave more information than I could have gathered at libraries over a week's period of time. Short of reading all of the stories, this was the best source of information I could have tripped upon. A job well done!!!!!Kudos to all!!!!!!"

"I run a Therapeutic recreation Department in a nursing home and decided to do a program with the residents on Cereals. I needed info and your sight was perfect. It took a lot of time to print the information, it was a lot of fun, and made for a great program. If I only had samples of all the cereals it would have brought real life to many of the cereals we had never tasted. Thanks for the info!"

"Hi Topher,
Just a brief fan letter here. I learned of your [Breakfast Cereal Character Guide] site through the review in Entertainment Weekly, and it IS terrific! So many memories -- and so well-presented on your part. I'm impressed at how many characters (and images) you've gathered, and I really enjoyed the historical background you provide throughout. So when is your book coming out?? I'd buy it!"

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It was so kind of you to figure out how I could put your award on my site! And now I know for future reference for other pictures. My nephew did all the original "stuff" so I didn't learn how to do the pictures like that. So thanks so much. I'm almost more excited about getting the award to work, than the award... though Winnie the Pooh and I are good friends. Thanks again for all of your help. I'm saving your e-mail so I can use it for a reference in the future.
Take care,"

It [Name That Tune 5 - Saturday Morning TV] was so much fun, I actually beat my parents on the "Themes from Saturday Morning TV Shows!" I give it 5 stars for quality family time!!!

I just wanted to say that after looking at your internet site I feel completely different about internet sites. It is really safe and provides u with as much information as an adults site. I have recommended it to all my friends and my best pal agrees that it is great. We are both even crazier about winnie the pooh than ever before.
Thanks Topher, Sophie!

THANK YOU! The Waffle-Whiffer came to mind this morning and after 30 years I couldn't remember anything more about him, not even his name, but I googled in "waffle bird commercial" and your site popped up. You saved me from countless hours/days of frustration of trying to remember! What a great website; I will be sharing this one with all my peers who remember the old days of Saturday morning commercials. :)
