Inspiration^2

Pics below are connected to inspiring the creation of a famous literary character.
Tell which character and give Fundae for the pics

Answer:
A.A. Milne, the author of Winnie-the-Pooh, found the inspiration for his characters in his son Christopher Robin (pic1) and his toys, one of which was a teddy bear.Christopher Robin named his teddy Winnie after a bear that lived in the London Zoo. The bear was given to the zoo by a Canadian officer, Harry Colebourne, who, it is said, bought her from a hunter for $20 and named her Winnie in honor of his hometown, Winnipeg. Colebourne, above with his pet (pic2), left Winnie in the zoo's care when he was called to duty in France, and she lived there until her death in 1934.
