Why is there more cub simba merch compared to...

Postby Elton John » November 20th, 2018, 10:41 pm

adult simba even tho both are in the first movie almost the same amount of time? and cub simba is only seen briefly in other tlk media.

my best guess is that little simba is more marketable for merch cuz he’s so cute and fuzzy and meow meow meow’

any other guesses?

What you said basically hits the nail on the head. Plus I suspect Disney is still targeting child fans of The Lion King. They figure us Adult fans would only want to by merch for the children in our lives. Which is sad because Disney must realize that The Lion King Franchise has plenty of adult fans. :sad: The only things that I have seen as being targeted at us adult fans are the special features on The most recent Blu-Ray release. (the cut scene of The Be Prepared Reprise).

The cubs have the cuteness factor going for them. Little kids relate to the cubs because the cubs love to play, are curious, energetic, and innocent :). The cubs are also smaller making plushies easier to make. Anthromorpism makes the cubs equivalent to about a 4-7 year old kid. :cool5:

Piggybacking on someone else’s reply about the only Lion King merchandise I’ve seen targeting adults has to do with the Broadway show, and honestly I don’t like it much :down:

There's so many shirts targeted toward women I'd like as a man too. Mostly 90s styled shirts too :(
