Kion Lionguard Talking Plush Toy

The Lion Guard from Disney Junior has been a huge success both in the programme and toy ranges.  Being a spin off from the original The Lion King, it’s sure to appeal to little ones and something us adults can look back on fondly and share with our children as well as enjoy the new Lion Guard series. The new range of talking plush toys are fabulous for little ones and come in either Kion the lion or his best friend Bunga the badger.  We received Kion to try out  from Flair toys and he certainly didn’t disappoint!

Each character is approximately 30cm in size, made to an exceptionally high standard and looks great in both detail and stature.  Being high quality means this little lion plush can not only stand on it’s own four legs but can also sit down on his hind legs independently looking really cute.  A key feature on each character is the ‘Mark of the Guard’ badge on one of their fore legs which lights up as it is pressed.  Each time you press the badge you’ll here one of four unique phrases and sounds.

So what did we think of the Kion plush toy?

The Kion plush from The Lion Guard is utterly adorable and hasn’t left my little boys arms since he received it.  It goes to bed with him every night and he plays with it by day.  It’s a great size, we love it’s quality and it’s a toy I’d definitely recommend to any young The Lion Guard fans.  The detail on the face is perfect and realistic, it has a mouth that is open ready to roar and the whole body is super soft and perfect for cuddles.

Disney The Lion Guard Toys – Review

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 Twitter Party #LionGuardToys

Disney’s The Lion Guard is a fun, animated tv show based on The Lion King film from 1994, and is based around Kion, son of Simba and Nala.  Kion leads the Lion Guard, a team of animals who protect the Pride Lands and defend the Circle of Life.  Just released is a fabulous range of toys to go alongside the programme,  enabling little ones to play with their favourite characters and have lots of imaginative play with fun accessories such as coconut blasters and boulder catapults.


The main toy in the range is The Lion Guard Defend the Pride Lands playset.  This is packed full of fun features for the ultimate adventure to take your character figures on.  Included is one Kion figure, and a whole host of fun traps and moveable elements that my five year old is eager to explore.


  • Capture bad guys on the collapsing rock ledge
  • Features bone trap and leaf trap floor
  • Defend Pride Rock with the boulder launcher
  • Have Kion ride the motorised vine and jump on the tree top perch
  • Whooshing waterfall and hidden passage to explore

We’ve been lucky to have an early look at the toys and they look fabulous, perfect for imaginative fun that both girls and boys will enjoy.
