You guys. I have always been obsessed with Disney's The Lion King. When I was young I could quote every line (and still do!). When I had children, it was the very first Disney DVD I bought. Despite the fact that Genevieve could barely sit through a 20-minute kid show, let alone an entire movie, still, I tried. My excitement the first time I saw the preview for Disney's The Lion King coming to theaters July 19th was off the charts. Literal butterflies! There's something about passing on an experience you were passionate about as a child to your own kids that feels so precious. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to tell you guys about The Lion King events at Walmart and adorable The Lion King products there. Keep reading for a peek at these new toys plus my very own The Lion King Trail Mix recipe!

The Lion King events are happening at select Walmart stores during this weekend starting 7/19 and include crafts, exclusive toy demos, and fun surprises. You can check the event locator here to find a participating store near you. There will also be a limited number of movie posters to snag! I wanted to drum up excitement for the event so I let the kids choose Disney's The Lion King toys from Walmart. They were just plain cute, as they compared items that revved up their imagination right there in the toy aisle.

One of the items they chose was Disney's The Lion King Roaring Simba Plush. It is the CUTEST thing ever. It turns its head, says phrases from the movie, and you can even​ hear Simba's infamous roar. 

I was pumped about their other choice- Disney's The Lion King Deluxe Figure Set. I knew they'd have so much fun acting out scenes from the animated The Lion King movie with this set. It's beautifully detailed and includes Simba, Nala, Rafiki, Timon, Pumbaa, Zazu, Young Simba, Young Nala, Mufasa, Scar, Vulture, and Hyena. If you can't tell, I could hardly get pictures of them because they were so engrossed in their play. Both this set and the roaring plush will be featured at Walmart's special family events, along with a variety of other The Lion King toys. You can see them all here!

I took the kids to our favorite nature park (complete with the most perfect rock for their 'pride') to play with their new toys and made what I called The Lion King Trail Mix: using The Lion King branded Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Honey Nut Cheerios as a base. I then added Banana Chips and Pretzels, with Golden Raisins sprinkled in.
(recipe above!)

They snacked and played. And played! I can't wait to attend Walmart's The Lion King experience with the kiddos this weekend! I wouldn't be surprised if someone brings his plushie with him. ;)

He's working on his roar. ;)
You can check the event locator here to find a participating store near you. The events are happening this weekend (7/19) and will include crafts, exclusive toy demos, and fun surprises as Walmart celebrates The Lion King! You can even take home a limited edition Disney's The Lion King movie poster while supplies last.

I hope you're able to attend this fun The Lion King event at Walmart and share some special moments with your kiddos!
