The one thing that has really caught my attention with this range of toys is the bright colours and smiley characters, they really do appeal to pre schoolers even if they are not familiar with the TV show.
All the characters have wheels to whizz around Jungle Junction on, and what is more fun that wheelie toys?
The EllyVan Pull Back and go toy is a really robust sturdy pull back toy, it is a lovely size approx 6 inch long, really chunky perfect for the younger children with an age rating of 12 months plus. The detail is great with the smiley Ellyvan features and a twistable trunk which clicks as you turn it around, and opening back doors so Ellyvan can transport the other Jungle Junction characters. Priced at around £6.99 this is a really good value play piece.
Also in the Flair Jungle Junction toy range is the Wheel around Play set, containing 3 characters approx 3inch each, Ellyvan, Zooter and Bungo.
Although there are three sets which include an Ellyvan, there are distinct differences between them, so it doesn't matter that you are doubling up.
I love how the expressions alter with each playsets version and this again adds to children's role play.
The Ellyvan on the left with the shocked expression is from the Wheel Around set, the middle large Ellyvan is the Pullback Ellyvan to show the size difference, and the one on the right winking is the Ellyvan from the large Playset.
If you want to add to your collection further there are plush characters available too, priced around £9.99
These lovable soft characters are really nice, they are suitable from around 12 months with the soft body and real working wheels they give two types of play in one. Something to snuggle up with and something to whizz around the floor! This Bungo stands around 8 inch tall so is a perfect size for all toddlers.
Further still you can continue the Jungle Junction fun in the bathroom with the lovable water squirters priced at a very affordable £3.99
These cute characters are excellent to add a spot of imaginative play to bathtimes, with the 5 most popular character designs available to collect.
All children will love to wheel these around the bathtub and then squirt each other, a really lovely additional to this character play series, great fun for paddling pools and water tables too.
Jungle Junction toys can be found in lots of good toy shops but I found some good prices online at Smyths here
