EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Inspired by the main characters from Disney's live-action remake of The Lion King, Just Play has created a line of plush toys featuring Simba, Nala, Pumbaa and Timon.  The characters were first introduced in the 1994 animated film and return in the new live-action but follow the same storyline. The new live-action will feature a star-studded cast lending their voices to these characters, including Donald Glover (Simba), Beyoncé (Nala), Seth Rogan (Pumbaa), and Billy Eichner (Timon). James Earl Jones returns as Mufasa.

As you probably already know, Simba and Nala are two lion cubs. Simba is the son of the lion king Mufasa, who runs away following the death of his father and finds Timon and Pumbaa, the meerkat-and-warthog duo who teach him the ways of "Hakuna Matata" ( it means no worries). Each stuffed character features a super soft body and measures between six- to eight-inches tall, depending on the character. Timon, for example, is the smallest of the bunch.

They are made of high-quality plush materials with embroidered on facial features. 

Is It Fun?

Cute, soft, cuddly, and well-made, these Lion King stuffed animals will be fun companions for kids of the new film as well as the original. Their details ring true perfectly replicate and bring to life the characters they are inspired by, offering fans a cute pal to carry around, or use for imaginative play. Kids can also gather up multiple characters to recreate their favorite movie scenes or come up with their own adventures for the four friends.
