Oh my goodness, I've been wanting one of these forever! Do you know how much they usually go for?

Shenzi, my fav character from TLK! And I also always wanted this plush as a child, and several years ago I've seen it in a kid's hand on the street. When I go to a second-hand shop I always browse for Shenzi...

I always wanted one Shenzi like this as a child, and a few years ago my mom found two ones at a second-hand babyclothes market :)

I found this Shenzi at a thrift store recently for 50 cents :D Total win (in pretty nice condition too)! There was also a Scar and a Simba like this (I used to carry the Simba around with me as a kid)

hanks for sharing. Those were all made by Applause when the Lion King first came out. I have those ones too. They also made a Rafiki and a Pumbaa with the vinyl heads too, see links for photos.

The bigger vinyl headed scar was part of Applause's large Lion King plush line up. They made an adult Simba, adult Nala, Scar, a Cheetah, a giraffe and an elephant. If you look through my gallery I have some of those pictured as well. Aside from Scar though the bigger ones did not have a vinyl head.

I remember some of these, I also had the Timon with the vinyl head (I still have all of my TLK collection, but the toys I've had since I was a kid aren't in the best of shape thanks to the simple fact that I played with them a lot lol :D) I'm enjoying browsing your gallery, so many memories!

I really enjoy collecting toys but there is no point in having a collection if you can't share it with the world. Hence why I am gradually taking photos of my collection and putting it online for everyone to enjoy and relive the memories they perhaps had with certain toys. So I am glad you are enjoying my gallery. I have also met a lot of interesting people through sharing my collection too, which is fun. I would love to see a photo of your collection, if you ever have time to make one. The Timon with the vinyl head was made by Mattel back in 1994.
