We were sent The Lion Guard ‘Rise of Scar’ playset for review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
Jack loves watching cartoons on the TV after school and has recently got into The Lion Guard. When we were offered the opportunity to review the brand new ‘Rise of Scar’ The Lion Guard playset, I just had to apply – I knew Jack would love it seeing as he had recently circled it in the Smyth’s catalogue!
The playset comes with an exclusive Kion figure. Kion is the son and youngest child of Simba and Nala and the younger brother of Kiara. The Kion figure has movable features – his head, legs and tail all move. But that isn’t the only feature available in this playset – there are so many fabulous features to amuse your children and keep them occupied for ages!
- A lava pool trap which launches balls of lava at Scar, complete with sound effects
- A collapsing bridge which collapses at the push of a button
- A crocodile pool with a crocodile to catch any fallers from the collapsing bridge
- A monkey launching tree trap – the monkey gets launched but this also doubles up as a great swing for Kion
- A light up Scar with sound effects that pops up with pop up flames
Jack is a big fan of the original The Lion King which The Lion Guard is based on and has really been enjoying The Lion Guard recently too. He has been playing with this constantly since it arrived and has even got his little sister involved in some of the play – although you will see in our YouTube video out takes that Scar has taken a little bit of getting used to!
As he’d circled this as something he wanted for his birthday/Christmas, I had high hopes for this and I am pleased to say I wasn’t disappointed. If I let him, he would play with this for hours and I would be happy for him too. You can recreate scenes from the television series if you wish or you can make up your own stories – the fun can last for absolutely ages.
For £49.99, this The Lion Guard ‘Rise of Scar’ playset is great value for what you get, however I would have liked to see some more figures. Kion does cut a lonely figure going around the set on his own.
To find out more about what we think about the playset, just check out our review video below and if you would like to buy the playset for yourself, you can buy it from Smyths here.
Is this on your child’s Christmas list?
