Toys of the 2019 remake of The Lion King are quite a hit and miss and this animatronic Nala toy is no exception. While her plush is nice and soft and she features her original movie voice, this toy is a copy of the Leap & Roar Kion and two other animatronic Simba toys, suffering from the same problems such as loud servo motors and a cheap plastic mouth. It also shows how difficult it is to create a toy that looks like a realistic lion cub while being affordable at the same time, so Nala looks more like a cross of a teddy bear and a lion. It’s also interesting to note that this is sold at the Disney Store, which recently keeps selling more and more toys from other manufacturers instead of their own.
Nevertheless, I have added her to my collection as my 286th TLK item and in this video, I’ll take a detailed look at her.
Nala is currently available for purchase on ShopDisney, current price is $34.95 (may vary): https://www.shopdisney.com/nala-talking-plush-the-lion-king-2019-461012125523.html
