When I was a kid, I LOVED Lion King and it was one of the first things I obsessed over and began collecting and making stuff of. I had it all- the shampoo, bath bubbles, toy sets, candy bars, Wonderball toys, Kids/Happy Meal toys, school supplies, Christmas Ornaments, etc. Anything that came out of it, I had to have it. But my most beloved possession of all was my Simba plush. I packed him everywhere and he remained to be my favorite stuffed animal for life and I still leave him on my bed.

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary on Sunday and decided to watch it in 3D. Seeing the film again in theaters was incredible. Every old feeling of love, admiration, excitement, awe-inspired, etc came rushing right back to me. The movie was just as good as it was back then, and it still stands the test of time. It is such a brilliant movie in story-telling, animation, art, music- everything. A masterpiece, if you will. And watching it with my husband for our first wedding anniversary made it all the more special.

I had goosebumps almost the entire time I was watching the movie.

When we returned home, I wanted to make something Lion King related. I was just so inspired, and I ended up not being able to sleep from it.
And so, I ended up with this:









He ended up being a Spooky-Pooky style Simba and I love him so much. He turned out pretty cute, and he just sort of happened. I love it when that takes place. I put him on my bed with old Simba and it was then that I realized just how worn and torn he is. Sad

But I just remind myself he is not old and scruffy-
He is loved and cherished! And now I have Baby Simba to remind me of my anniversary, my love for the movie and Simba (animated version and stuffed version), my childhood, and to keep inspiring me!

That is so sweet!  Lion King has always been one of my favorite Disney movies; I love tiny animated Simba, and I know he will always be special.

That was such a precious story. Shocked I have the movie too of the Lion King & I cry during it, I'm very emotional & even cried reading your story. Cry   I'm just a big blubbering mess!
Anyway I think your new baby Simba is just so sweet. Oh & Happy Anniversary, that's a great memory!!!........ Cool
