It’s been 25 years since “The Lion King” — the original animated version — made its theatrical debut. In celebration of this milestone in Disney history, Steiff is pleased to present our first-ever rendition of Timon, the wise-cracking meerkat from the film. Along with Pumbaa, Timon is part of the pair that is best remembered for their performance of the classic Disney song “Hakuna Matata.” By perfectly capturing his jovial grin and his smiling eyes, Steiff designers — working hand-in-hand with Disney — have created a collectible version of the Timon that will brighten your days for years to come. This merry meerkat is beautifully soft-sculpted from genuine mohair and highly detailed. The character comes to life with its hand-stitched eyes, skillfully airbrushed accents, and distinctive standing pose. He’s the perfect nostalgic memento for anyone who loved the firm when first released, or the ideal keepsake for the generations of fans who’ve discovered it since. A must-own edition for Steiff collectors or Disney fans.
