The Lion Guard Life in the Pride Lands
*I received a copy of The Lion Guard Life in the Pride Lands to facilitate this review. However, as always opinions are 100% my own as always.
We are avid Lion King lovers here and LOVE bringing it to a new generation as a continued story from the characters we all love. Little Si who isn’t so little anymore is just as enamored as Little Lizzie was at his age with this generation. Each episode contains a new challenge and the team must come together to find a solution. Which mirrors real life and the earlier they learn that the better they will be. On this fun DVD Kion and his Lion Guard team protects the Circle of Life. (And we all know how important that is to us!)
We can’t wait to watch it over and over again! Be sure you pick up your copy so you can fall in love with all of these characters. Included in the DVD is a set of 5 bracelets that kids of all ages will love to have. I’m thinking I need to channel my inner Ono to tackle my challenges this week. What character would most represent you?
Follow our group of unlikely heroes: Bunga the honey badger, Fuli the cheetah, Beshte the hippo and Ono the egret. Join this heroic band as they use their unique abilities to protect the Pride Lands and maintain the Circle of Life. This series also features Simba, the spirit of Mufasa and the hilarious antics of Timon and Pumbaa. You’ll go wild for all the ferocious fun, because whether the Lion Guard team is tracking a rogue leopard, foiling tricky jackals or facing stubborn crocodiles, Life In The Pride Lands is always “hevi kabisa” – totally intense!
