If you have a pre schooler in your house then you may well of come across Jungle Junction, which is a childrens TV program from Disney.
There is a whole range of toys from Flair to complement the TV series, children love to have familiar toys to play with, watching the show means they will already have a idea about the characters and this just aids their imaginative play.
My Children don't watch a lot of TV, and so I am not aware of Jungle Junction with my older two hogging the remote when we do put the TV on its more Sarah Jane Adventures and Tracey Beaker that poor Mikey has to endure.
So what did we make of this playset?
The first thing I noticed was that it was a really large set, when fully built it is approx 2ft wide, which is plenty big enough for several children to play around but doesn't impose over the whole of your floor. Priced averagely around £39.99 you really do get a fair amount for your money.
You get two of the Jungle Junction Characters, a loveable elephant called Ellyvan and a Sweet pig called Zooter, which are great, perfect child hand sized toys, with great rollers on the bottom. The likeness to the characters on the TV show is great they are instantly recognisable.
The playset itself, comes in lots and lots of individual pieces, and took me around 35 minutes to build up.
The instructions come in the form of a diagram, which was easy enough to follow, and the pieces clipped together really easily.
When built up it is an impressive toy, lots to look at and interact with, elevators, turning circles, doors and bridges to name a few of this sets features.
My 4 year old even without really knowing much about Jungle Junction loved this set and played with it happily for ages, joined by his big sister the set is so big there is plenty of space for several children to play.
The age rating on the box says 3 and above, but with the friendly characters and coloourful nature of this toy I think it would be very attactive to the younger age range, and couldn't see any reason why young children wouldnt enjoy this so we invited the cousins over to join in the fun, they age from 10 months upto 5 years and all happily play with this together.
This really is a lovey play set, the track pieces are interchangeable so you can create several different layouts which is nice as it keeps the interest in this toy, and gives the older children a sense of creativity.
The figures roll around the track really well, and the chunky nature means even the younger members can enjoy this toy as there are no really fiddly pieces to worry about, there are a couple of card trees, but they seem sturdy enough to last a fair amount of time, and without them the playset is still attractive and fully usable, you also get several sign posts, which can be pushed into the located firmly so they're difficult to remove, but all the children who played with the set here instantly wanted to swop them around so they spent alot longer out of the locators than in, but this adds to the play factor of this toy.
We were sent this toy to review on behalf of UKmums.tv
