We are huge fans of The Lion King and of course leading on to that we are also huge fans of The Lion Guard – the series on the Disney Channel which tells the story of Simba’s son – Kion and his friends.
The children were naturally happy to be sent this Hyena’s Hideout Playset from Flair to review as they are so crazy about the series.
This playset has quite a few features to keep a child entertained.
You can drop the jaw bone jail – perfect for trapping those pesky hyenas.
Pull down on the other branch to launch a boulder.
Roll the boulder in the opposite direction to collapse the bridge.
Send Fuli into the lava pit with the touch of a button.
Last but not least, the set comes with a figure of Janja – a hyena who is the leader of the hyena pack who lives in the Outlands. If you remember The Lion King – there was a pack of hyenas who were always around Scar. Well, Janja is a descendant of that pack and definitely not someone you want to play with.
But for the purpose of this review, we will play with Janja.
He is articulated so you can move his limbs.
I would say that this is a good add on pack if you have others in the range as it does not contain Kion or Chiara or the other friends. However, the set may well appeal to your dark side and then will be a great hit. Either way, the set is entertaining for Lion Guard fans.
The Hyena Hideout Playset is priced at £24.99 and is great value for money.
