Atlas the Lion Cub

Don’t be fooled by his floppy cuteness, Atlas is a ferocious roaring lion, striking fear in the hearts of man and beast! Although, it’s hard to be intimidated by those big moon eyes and squidgy pink toe beans! This cub is only a baby of course, he hasn’t grown a mane yet so Atlas wears this bushy bonnet to look like King of the Jungle but sshhh – don’t tell the other cubs it’s fake!

This hefty babe is almost the size of a real baby big cat, and with the option to put weights in his body and make him using the lush merino yarn kit, he becomes a weighted therapy toy and an heirloom.
