Ideal Shopping Direct   ·  2 min read

Following the highly successful launches of craft collections over the past nine months including Frozen, Vintage Mickey Mouse, Disney Princess, Winnie-the-Pooh and Finding Dory, Create and Craft TV has once again teamed up with Character World to launch the latest range of Disney branded crafting products; The Lion King on Saturday 22nd April 2017.

This latest craft collection brings the beloved characters from the Disney classic The Lion King to life; young Simba and Nala, Simba’s jungle pals Timon and Pumba, the King’s messenger hornbill Zazu, the wise mandrill monkey Rafiki, along with uncle Scar and his faithful hyenas Shenzi, Banzai and Ed. The Lion King tells the story of Simba, a young lion who is set to succeed his father as King of the Pride Lands; however, after Simba’s uncle Scar kills his father, Simba is led to believe he was responsible and therefore runs away. Once he has grown up, living with his two new jungle friends Timon and Pumba, Simba learns that not all was what it seemed, and therefore decides to return to challenge the evil Scar and take his place in the Circle of Life as the rightful King. This wonderful film is brought to life in this brilliant craft collection for all the family; inspiring crafters young and old to enjoy this new range.

This new craft collection includes character dies of Simba and his friends and foes, coordinating embellishment dies, coordinating alphabet dies and character and background scene pad. Also included in the collection is a limited edition die featuring the grown-up character dies of Simba and his childhood friend Nala. All of the dies from the range have been made using the most detailed die technology. The dies incorporate essential detail, to enable crafters to get the truest likeness to each Disney character possible through precision cutting. Using these alongside the coordinating character paper pads enables both beginners and experienced crafters to create the same professional results.

Stephanie Weightman, Creative Director at Create and Craft said “We are so pleased to bring our next collection of craft products from the Disney universe, with The Lion King range launching at Create and Craft. These beloved characters are sure to be a hit with all the family and the designs are ideal for creating projects for all occasions. We are proud to continue to give our customers the opportunity to bring the Disney magic to life through their crafts”.

Danny Schweiger, Joint Managing Director at Character World, said: “We’re excited to be working with Disney and Create and Craft TV to manage the launch of this new range of licensed crafting products. We’ve worked hard to ensure the products and experience will be the same high quality that customers have come to know and love from ourselves and from Disney.”
