Great news for Lion King fanatics: Simba, Nala, Pumbaa and Timon have just arrived at Build-a-Bear Workshops and they're all totally ready for hugs. Prices start at $20 for the animals and $10 for themed apparel.
The addition of this beautiful and fun collection of furry friends to the Workshop could not have been better timed: the 2019 Lion King remake releases on 17th July! (Beyond excited!).
A whole new generation of kids is about to completely fall in love with Simba, Nala and the gang, and these huggable toys make some of the most special Lion King gifts in town.
Simba and Nala are both $40 each (excluding clothes), Pumbaa is $45 and little Timon is $20. I love that Build-a-Bear has included Simba and Nala in both cub and grown-up styles - the only problem is choosing between them!
In terms of accessories, you've got "Circle of Life," "Hakuna Matata," and "Feel the Love" tees available for $10 each, and there's also a Nala Tutu Set for $20.
At this stage, I haven't spotted any sound cards to go with the gang, but they could still be on the way.
When you order furry friends from Build-a-Bear online, they come already stuffed. If you really want your child to experience building their own Lion King (or other) bear, scout out your nearest store and head on in.
