|“||Kion: Me and Bunga were playing Baobab Ball.|
Bunga: And Kion couldn't handle the pass!
Kion: What? A giraffe couldn't handle it. You kicked it over my head!
Baobab Ball is a game in which a baobab fruit is passed between players. It can evolve into a competition of another nature, as Bunga and Kion are known to wrestle over the fruit on occasion rather than pass it back and forth.
Baobab Ball is first introduced by Kion, who interrupts Kiara's morning lesson with their father, Simba. He and Bunga begin a heated game of Baobab Ball, until Simba tells them to take their game elsewhere. Leaving Simba and Kiara in peace, Bunga and Kion chase each other across the Pride Lands, tossing the fruit back and forth. A friendly giraffe even gets involved, but the game eventually ends when the baobab fruit rolls into the Outlands.
Kion and Bunga are playing Baobab Ball when they encounter Jasiri, Kion's hyena friend, in the Pride Lands.
