THE LION KING
Collectable figures by Mattel
CIRCLE OF LIFE FRIENDS
Rhinosorus and Hippopotamus figures

This series of figures are of some of the different animals from the Circle of Life at the beginning of the Lion King. They are part of one of Mattel's Lion King toy lines from back in 1994. Other figures in this series were, cheetahs, giraffes, and Elephants.

This is the U.S. version of the packaging, the international version, looks identical except for having "The Lion King" in multiple languages in the sun graphic.

UPC: 026676663875
Model: 66387

OTHER IMAGES OF THESE FIGURES

Mattel was not the only company to make toys of some of the animals from the circle of life. Applause made plush versions of an elephant, a cheetah and a giraffe for the Lion King back in 1994. In 2011 Some plush were being sold at the the Disney Store of some of the animals from the Circle of Life as well.

Ah yes, but it is all about marketing... Disney is really good at it, so is apple.
