This big adult Simba plush was sold at Disney Stores in the United States when the Lion King was first released on DVD in 2003. This Simba is quite soft however he does have some plastic tubing in his legs to help him stand upright. He also has some wire in his tail so you can pose it how you want. This Simba plush is sort of similar in design to one that was sold at Disney Stores back in 1994 when the Lion King was originally released. Simba was $98, when I bought him. He is 28" tall, 13" wide and 20" deep excluding his 16" pose-able tail. This Simba plush is called JUMBO SIMBA on his tag and his UPC is: 412028046906. Although the Disneystore says this is Simba, I kind of always thought this plush looked a bit more like Mufasa.
Wow! he's awesome!!!! HE does resemble Mufasa more though im kinda a lion king geek so i notice differences in Mufasa and Simba like day and night! XD i have a few Simbas that look like mufasa as well...
I agree, I always thought it was easy to tell Mufasa and Simba apart. I could never understand why Disney never seems to be able to tell them with their plush designs. I have several Lion King plushies as well that say they are Simba even though they look more like Mufasa. I always have kind of thought of this one as Mufasa, even though the tag says Simba.
I've never seen this Simba plush before--thanks for sharing! He is lovely--although as you said, he looks a bit more like Mufasa than Simba. This plush looks very similar to the Mufasa plush that was sold this year, but I like that this Simba's fur appears more plush rather than matted. He is truly an amazing-looking plush.
