Advantages: Great price for the Disney Store
Look at that face how can you resist him? well I couldn't!
My daughter went away to Uni in September and was feeling really home sick. Whilst out Christmas shopping we decided to have a nostalgic browse around the Disney Store where she spotted Simba on offer looking at her from a giant plastic tub. I thought to myself I'll get that for her for Christmas but they were selling out as we were in there! Stationing her in Primark I slipped off under false pretences and bought one. At £20 reduced from £40 he was a real bargain (over the years I've spent hundreds of pounds in there on soft toys- including Lion King teddies).
After purchasing him I wondered how I was going to hide all 24 inches of him but he's so soft and squishy I managed to squeeze him into a holdall.
Simba is a lion cub from the Lion King cartoon movie first released by Disney in 1994. After a recent 3d cinema release he's found a new audience.
Simba is made with really soft fleecy polyester material- so soft and big that my daughter uses him as a pillow! He's not over filled making him slightly floppy but he still sits up! This makes him light for a child to easily to carry around. There are no hard bits on him, his great big brown eyes for example are embroidered as is his big pink nose. He comes in cheerful yellow with dark brown paws and ears, he has a fluffy yellow mane and tail detail.
Large Simba is suitable for children age 12 mnths +
As for cleaning a quick sponge down was adequate after being in Uni halls with my daughter but I wouldn't like to risk putting him in the washing machine (he probs wouldn't fit anyway!!). As for availability he's probably exclusive to the Disney Store (well that's the only place I've seen this particular 'model' in this quality).
In conclusion Simba is a lovely floppy addition to anyones bed even nostalgic 20 year olds!
Summary: Squishy cuddly soft toy which any child would love!!
