Lion King Cub Simba by Douglas

This is the large stuffed cub Simba made by Douglas Cuddle Toys. He is 22" long excluding tail and 18" tall. This Simba plush was made in the U.S.A around 1994-1995. This plush is quite rare.

How could that be Simba?

He looks a little more like Kopa, who was actually shown at the end of the 1st Lion King and should've been on 'Simba's Pride' and be a big brother of Kiara.

Don't Believe me? look at these fan arts;……

Hey, I was thinking of buying this version, though I'm unsure about 3 things :3
Is this version from another Country or just a different design?
Would you say this version is rarer than the other cub versions made?
Are there wires in all 4 legs for him to stand? (The person selling says hers doesn't have wires in it's right back leg, and I'm wondering if this will hinder it's worth).

Thank you if you're able to shed some light on these for me lol :D :hug:

This Simba cub plush has got to be the best-looking one that I've ever seen. He looks fantastic! I've never seen this particular Douglas Cuddle Toys Simba for sale; I've seen the Douglas adult Simbas a few times, but never the cub Simbas.

Wow! That's probably the most on-model plush I've seen.

I know, often the plush representation of a character does not really look like the character it is supposed to be at all. Many of the other Lion King ones really do not look right at all. I think they got it pretty bang on with this one though.

Thanks for your comment. I have seen this one in Europe a couple times before. I am sure you will find one eventually.

There are a couple of different versions of this particular plush from Douglas as well as two different sizes that were made.

I went and checked out your collection, you have a very nice collection. If you are interested, add me to your watch list. Over time I will be uploading much more Lion King stuff. I am also adding links to more detailed views in the descriptions as well.
