I was visiting my niece and she mentioned she wanted to show me something new she had just received, a Melissa & Doug giant lion stuffed animal. At first glance I was impressed, it looked very real because of the size and detail.
This is one King of the Jungle that can rule over any environment! Beautifully detailed and lifelike, this king-sized, plush lion is carefully constructed to be the “mane” feature in your home for many years.
The Melissa & Doug giant Lion plush is friendly and lifelike at almost 6 feet long. It will be a hit with your kids or as a gift.

What customers have to say about the Melissa & Doug Giant Stuffed Lion
Lots of reviewers commented on the fact that the faces of the kids light up when they first see the lion. For example, one reviewer remarked our granddaughter Sara is into stuffed animals, the bigger the better, so when she saw this it brought a big smile to her face, and at night when she sleeps with her, he keeps the monster out.
This lion is a common gift item as explained by this reviewer who purchased the lion as a gift for my 3 1/2-year-old grandson for Christmas. He was thrilled with his new lion. Both he and his younger sister enjoyed sitting on it.
While often used in a nursery or to decorate a room this reviewer had other ideas. I purchased this Lion for our town’s annual 4th of July parade as our local Lion’s club mascot to ride on our float. It was a hit. Now will plan to use it at all our Lion’s events.
Many reviewers commented on the quality. This person stated they searched online for a long time before I decided which giant stuffed lion to get my son for Christmas. Honestly, I was worried about quality with this one because it was significantly cheaper than all the others. However, I am VERY pleased with this lion. It is larger than any other I saw and made with good quality. DEFINITELY worth more than the price.
