Disney's The Lion King Live-Action Roaring Simba & Plush - Review & Giveaway


AD - We were sent these products for the purpose of this review, however, all opinions are my own.


The Lion King is a favourite of mine and has been ever since I was a little girl. I had the VHS, the storybook, the soft toys, the Simba hot water bottle and would regularly crawl around the schoolyard pretending to be Nala! I now relive those memories through my own children because they adore The Lion King too. It's an ageless story, enjoyed by generations and if you are anything like me then you'll be excited by the upcoming release of the live-action movie. Coinciding with the new movie is a range of live-action toys, brought to you by Flair, which I'll be reviewing today.


For the purpose of this review, we received the Disney's The Lion King Live-Action Small Plush with Sound - RRP £9.99 and The Lion King Live-Action Roaring Simba - RRP £39.99. Ava couldn't wait to play with them and discover what they do.


First, we have The Lion King Live-Action Roaring Simba toy which caught Ava's attention right away. It quite a decent size, standing at 12" tall and is made from soft, deluxe fabrics. It's rather realistic looking which makes it great for both play and cuddles. 


The Lion King Live-Action Roaring Simba features an abundance of different phrases, and sounds, including an adorable roar. It doesn't walk, but it moves it's head and opens and closes its mouth. You get it to do this by pressing a button on its leg, above its paw. It's also motion activated whilst in play mode which Ava found fascinating. I caught her tiptoeing around it, trying to sneak past without making it roar! She also likes to peer right inside its mouth!


The Lion King Live-Action Small Plushes are available in four different characters: Simba, Nala, Timon, and Pumba. They are smaller in stature at 8" tall but are just as soft and cuddly. We received Nala and thought the likeness to the live-action movie character was remarkable. At first glance, we thought it was just a teddy, however, it talks and makes noises too! I have a feeling Ava will want to collect all 4 and seems to refer to Nala as her baby.

Both toys require batteries, which are included, and are both suitable for children from 3 years of age. They are available to buy now at Argos, Amazon and other leading retailers.

  16. I hadn't known there was a new version of The Lion King until I read this blog. I can recall seeing The Lion King, Disney animation version ( remakes, surely they should be numbered, so people know what they are about to view).

    Not sure if we will see this version. We were in the front row, in the city about eight of us. The music was great.
