Disney’s The Lion Guard is an appealing tv series for young children, that has now been turned into an exciting range of fun and high quality toys that provide plenty of play value and encourage imaginative and adventurous play. We were lucky to hold a Lion Guard party last week with a few friends to celebrate the release of the new toy range.
The Lion Guard follows Kion, leader of the Lion Guard who along with his friends helps protect the Pride Lands. The largest toy in the range is the Defend the Pride Lands playset which really is quite impressive. At first glass it doesn’t look much, but when you have a closer look, there are eight interactive play features, such as traps, a motorised vine lift, boulder launcher, waterfall, hidden tunnel, collapsing rock. It really is good fun for an adventure and my little boy loved it. The set comes with a Kion figure to play with. Further figures are available in smaller sets or a figure set which features each of the main characters.
Smaller sets available include a figure and accessory such as Bunga’s Coconut Blaster. All of the accessories have a moving part and all of the children found these fun and enjoying using them as part of their adventure play.
After checking out the toys we had lots of The Lion Guard related party games including eating cake which went down well.
The favourite game had to be Pin the tail on Kion! We had a lion headpiece and fluffy tail to use which the children just loved.
The party was a great success and the children all went away with a goodie bag which included the new The Lion Guard magazine and also a blind bag containing a mini figure.
Overall I’m really impressed with the toy range, it is all made to a high quality that will be durable in play and withstand little fingers and a few knocks. The toys look lovely as well and have been well thought out. They lend themselves to imaginative minds of little ones which is perfect for my little boy and he has taken the animals on many adventures.
The Lion Guard toys are available now in most major toys shops now such as Smyths, so why not check them out now!
