January 18th marks the birthday of A.A. Milne, author who crafted the world of the Hundred-Acre Wood as well as it’s endearing animal characters. Although it’s been almost 100 years since Winnie the Pooh was first published (in 1926), children and adults alike continue to enjoy these engaging stories via book and film.

To commemorate this occasion, here’s a fun reimagining of some of the main protagonists as vehicles.

Piglet

Loyal and trying-to-be-brave (but coming across as more cute than brave), a pink Honda Fit is definitely how Piglet would reincarnate himself if he was an auto. Though not the snazziest car you could ride, it’s definitely a peppy profile that would suit those who prioritize conciseness and adorableness more than engine power and a spacious cabin.

Rabbit

The Chevy Colorado is perfect for this pragmatic, hard-working character. The ample truck bed would allow generous space to house all of his gardening tools. The brawn and towing capacity of this ride would also enable him to haul hefty loads of carrots to and from destinations with ease.

Eeyore

The 2009 Tato Nano embodies this melancholy, deliberate donkey. This version of the Nano can only reach up to 65 mph at it’s fastest. It takes 29.4 seconds to reach 60 mph from a standstill, one of the most sluggish acceleration rates a car has ever had.

Tigger

“Theyre bouncytrouncy, flouncy, pouncy. Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!” Tigger would morph into a blur of Ford Mustang, if he took on vehicle form. With the muscular, sleek outer body, this car delights in fun spins and lighthearted dashes around the countryside, just like Milne’s tiger.

Roo

The Fiat 500 Sport provides a youthful, sporty profile reminiscent of the tiny joey, Roo, that “young sibling” of the Winnie the Pooh character family. Like the Piglet Honda Fit, the Fiat 500 isn’t the most intimidating persona of the bunch, but it yields a charm which others can’t help but find endearing.

Pooh

Perhaps the most popular character from the Hundred-Acre Wood gang, Pooh definitely isn’t the smartest or most nimble. He’d definitely be a yellow Waymo minivan. The automated technology would give him a competent edge on the road, while giving him ample storage to bring along his honey pots when traveling.
