5 ft. Douglas Simba by Laurel-Lion 5 ft. Douglas Simba by Laurel-Lion
Aaaaaw yeah! For those of you who knew I had him, here's the picture! (finally lol)
So this is a new with tags 5 ft. adult Simba plush made by Douglas.
These guys are very rare since they were never sold, but given away by Nestlé when TLK first came out in the 90's.
This guy is by far my favourite adult Simba plush :3

Many many thanks to :icondapumakat: for selling this beautiful lion to me!!!

oh I know this one, but it's not nearly as big and rare as a Douglas plush. Here's mine laurel-lion.deviantart.com/art…

I still really like that one :) he's all cuddly.

This were never sold? I remember seeing an adult lying Simba in stores when I was young ... and I'm from Spain, which means that only a couple of merchandising arrives to our stores ...

No they were promotional plushies for display in stores or raffle prizes. 
Though there is a smaller version and I don't know about them much. All I know for sure is that the 5ft lying ones were not for sale. I have a good friend that is practically an expert when it comes to these Simbas made by Douglas and that's what he told me.

Is there any other laying adult Simba? Because I'm sure I saw one.

:iconlaurel-lion:
Laurel-Lion Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2014
Well like I said it's very possible that you saw one. Many stores had one for display. In America and in Europe.

There is a version with an open mouth.  Some version are only 4ft long and facing the other way. Some are puppets.

I see ... in that case it was so similar to this one for sure!

(Ahhh how I liked that big and expensive plush, back in time ...)

Laurel-Lion Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2014
Possible :P
Or maybe after a while the store owner sold it or something
Was there only one?

Yup, only one, but ... I don't know, maybe they were out of more stock

Okay. Well if there was only one it would make sense that it was a Douglas :p

So I noticed you don't have this guy listed on eBay! He's really rare too! It's a giant mufasa!! I thought I'd let you know since your missing him from your collection and the fact that he IS really rare. Id get him if I had the money but alas I'm poor lol but check him out ASAP in case you want him

haha yeah I know xD Someone once explained me how he managed to get one shipped to the US. He had like, to hire a company that could put it on a plane and then in a truck and drive it to his house XD

JazzyBBunny Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013
Wow crazy! I've had to hire a man and van to pick it up, at the cost of £80. I then have to have it delivered to my work place as I won't be home when he wants to deliver! Then we have to try and get it in my friends rather small car! Could be interesting! I'll try and get pictures of his journey. My mother is going to go nuts lol. How much to you think they are worth? I think I paid a fair amount but I can't really find info on them.

:iconlaurel-lion:
Laurel-Lion Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013
lool good luck with that XD
And um...I'm not even sure they were sold for a price. I know that the 5ft. lying Simbas were giveaways so I wouldn't be surprise if it was the same for the sitting one. Technically they cost nothing at first. I think over 200$ is way too much for it, i've seen some that had a starting bid of like 10$. Problem with this one is that he's so big that no one can buy them so their price drops.

I paid £190 I've seen one go for £250 but I've only ever seen mine and 2 others for sale. For all I know there might now only be 3 in the UK! I dunno, it was expensive but I've wanted him for a long time.

lol I'm pretty sure there are more, they're just not for sale XD
But yeah when you really want something, you don't care that much about the price :P
