Jungle Junction review

If you didn't already know, Jungle Junction is an animated children's show on Disney Junior aimed at preschoolers.

The characters are animals with wheels and their home is a jungle with roads. As they zip around the jungle on their adventures they help the children watching to learn about the environment and literacy skills.

The three main characters are Ellyvan, a blue elephant/van, Zooter, a pink pig/scooter, and Bungo, a rabbit who loves putting signs all over the jungle.

We were asked if we'd like to review some Jungle Junction toys and the eldest two were adamant that Tidgy would love to test them. I think they were cheekily answering for themselves!

We were sent a Zooter Bath Time Character, Bungo Plush Character, Ellyvan Pull-back and Wheel Around Fun Set.

The Zooter Bath Squirter is one of five collectables. You can also get Ellyvan, Toadhog, Taxicrab and Hippobus. This caused many giggles in the bath, and a wet Mum!

Tidgy loved the Ellyvan pull-back toy. The back doors open and there's plenty of room in there to fit one of the small characters from the Wheel Around set in and a few signs. It won't take the plush toy though despite Tidgy trying rather determinedly! Ellyvan's trunk turns with a clicking sound to Tidgy's delight. (Little things....!)

Tidgy took to giving the Bungo plush toy lots of cuddles. It runs smoothly along the floor and he has had great fun playing with it with his brother and sister.

The Wheel Around Fun Set (age 3+) consists of a card playmat with Jungle Junction scene, 3 characters, road signs and some stickers to be added to the playmat. Tidgy is perhaps a bit young for this but he soon got the idea and pushed the wheeled characters around on the mat. Girl and Middle barely let him get a look in when they are home from school though!

The Jungle Junction toys we had were all well made and very sturdy, which is a must-have requirement with heavy-handed toddlers. The card playmat mat not last a great length of time though, especially with my toddler around.

Often children's tv merchandise has very little resemblance to the characters in the show but these are easily recognisable.  All three of my children enjoying playing with these toys and they get a big thumbs up from them.

Take a look at the Flair website to see what else is available in the Jungle Junction range.
