    Looking for other Pooh sites? Well first check out Pooh's Thotful Spot. It has links to tons of other Pooh sites. However if you're still looking around for more after that I suggest you try one of the following search engines and search for the net for "Pooh": Yahoo, Alta Vista, Lycos, All-in-One Search Page, SavvySearch, Starting Point or WebCrawler. If you want even more search engines check out this page. It has a very complete list of all the ones that exist. Also, look on other Pooh pages for lists of other Pooh sites.

    How does the General Store Work?

    Many of the pages within Pooh's General Store are in association with other companies, including Amazon.com, CDNow, Beyond.com and eToys. These companies take care of processing and sending out all orders you make.

    Pooh's Place does make a small profit from the sale of each item, but none of the money earned goes to the maintainers' personal gain. We are a totally non-profit site, so in turn, all money earned is sent directly to charity. However, we do still encourage you to come back to Pooh's Place and make your purchases directly from here whenever you want to order from any of these companies, since prices aren't any higher through here, than directly from the company and by ordering from us you'll be able to support Pooh's Place in the process.

    ------------------------------------

    How can help out if I want?

    Pooh's Place accepts help from anyone who would like to volunteer. If you'd like an specific job, you can check out Pooh's Employment Center and fill out a job application. Otherwise, you can also assist us by letting us know of any other good sites which you're aware of and which we haven't linked to yet, whether that be Pooh related ones or other ones. We also accept any feedback about these pages that you'd be willing to offer (either good or bad).

    Additionally, we at Pooh's Place are always on the lookout for sponsors too. If you'd like to sponsor us or offer assistance in any way, just let the maintainer know.

    ------------------------------------

    Who in the world created this site?

    Well, me -- Rebecca Stephenson. :) I'm currently a junior at Sweet Briar College and a big Pooh fan too. I've basically loved Pooh ever since I was really little, and basically just started this page a few years ago because I thought it would be fun to do. And while my free time has been extremely limited because of school recently, I'm still trying to keep this page up and running, simply because of all the wonderful comments and compliments I've gotten from all you visitors over the years. If you're interested in learning any more about me, I suggest you check out my homepage...it's also fairly Poohish. :)

    ------------------------------------

    Can I advertise on your site?

    Sorry. At this point we don't offer advertising space for purchase on Pooh's Place, since it is against Geocities rules. They have been very nice to allow space for this page, and we do make it policy to respect their wishes. If we ever get our own domain name, then we can maybe talk about it.

    ------------------------------------

    How can I be considered for Kanga's Cool Link of the Week?

    We accept no requests for consideration for Kanga's Cool Link of the Week. All sites that are selected are ones I and other members of the Pooh's Place staff find on our own. You can, however, submit your site for inclusion on one of the character's pages (such as Eeyore's or Kanga's or Rabbit's, etc.). That's a way to make sure we'll check it out and who knows maybe we'll select your site as a winner. :)

    ------------------------------------

    Is Roo's Playground a separate site or part of this one?

    Well, it's kind of both. Roo's Playground is a stand alone site, however, it's closely associated with Pooh's Place too, including being the main link from Roo's Room. Basically Roo's Playground started out as Roo's part of this site, but it increasingly got larger and larger, until I felt it deserved the opportunity to expand into itŐs own site.
