The Jungle Junction animated series follows a group of animals on wheels as they explore the magical jungle where the live.
Deep in the interior of a distant, unexplored jungle stand the remains of a mysterious civilisation. An amazing network of floating roads wind through the jungle like spaghetti; twisting, looping and sweeping high off the ground in harmony with the trees.
The local animals threw away their feet and replaced them with wheels instead, enabling them to explore this magical world. Launch Ellyvan and his friend Crocker down the dual ramps by pulling the levers and watch them go! Bobby rings the starting bell and the race is on! Who will reach the finish line first?
Includes Ellyvan and Crocker figure. Connect the Race Launcher to the Jungle Playset for more jungle fun! For ages 3+.

Meet the Characters from Jungle Junction
Meet the Beetlebugs
Beetle Bugs are the children of the jungle!
Various juveniles who live in flowers.
Little is known where they come from although some say they emerged from the seeds of flowers growing in a secret meadow deep in the jungle. Their colours correspond to what they will grow into i.e yellow for a new Bungo, blue for a new Ellyvan etc. Just like children, they are noisy, mischievous, inquisitive and hyperactive.
All the Beetle Bugs attend the Jungle Junction schoolhouse and return back to the flowers at night.
Two little Beetle Bugs are available in a Jungle Junction Duo Tube along with Miss Jolly the school teacher.
The 5 Beetle Bugs of Jungle Junction also appear in the Hippobus play set where they can sit inside and roll down the slide!
Bobby is a male toucan / police car.
He lives in the town police station and is the jungle's one-bird police force! He's kind, endearing and drives very carefully expecting the other inhabitants to do like-wise. Bobby is always there if you need him but is often frustrated at the lack of crimes to solve. Of course, being a bird he is able to fly which comes in handy if he wants to check on traffic flowing during the rush hour.
Bungo is a male rare undiscovered jungle rabbit / maintenance vehicle.
He lives underground in the Jungle Junction town. The last one of his kind, a very rare creature whose job is to keep the jungle tidy and running smoothly by the copious production of signs! Go left, go right, stop, go, no entry etc...he's at it all the time. He does everything by the book and is a bit of a boffin who is rather prone to complaining that his work is not appreciated and claims that without him the jungle and its roads would over-grow and movement about the place would be impossible. He's probably right but nobody tells him that because it would go straight to his head.
Bungo is available to buy in a Jungle Junction Duo Tube which also has his pal Taxicrab inside. He also comes part of the Wheel Around Fun Play set!
Crocker is a male crocodile / fire engine who lives in the town fire station.
He is a heroic character, who spends a lot of time up in the lookout tower of the fire station scanning the horizon with his binoculars searching for fires. Though he has never actually put out or even seen a fire before, he does think it necessary that he has Ellyvan and Zooter as assistants. Quiet in nature, he likes nothing more than pottering about in his garden in his spare time.
Crocker is available to buy with a Jungle Junction Duo Tube with his pal Bobby the policeman of Jungle Junction.
Dozer is a male bull / bulldozer.
He lives in the builder's yard on the edge of town. A rather large, rather imposing creature that has one overwhelming purpose in life...to build more roads. Always up, never down, he is very close to Bungo and like him, hates the messy, uncontrolled nature of the jungle believing 'flat is best'.
A bull of few brain cells who has a heart of gold and not suprisingly, the strenght of a bull! He has to shout on account that his ears don't work properly probably because of all the shouting that he does, did that make sense? Well that's Dozer for you
Meet EllyvanEllyvan is a male elephant / delivery van & part time fire fighter!
He lives in the base of a big hollow tree some distance out of town. An innocent with a small brain he likes throwing himself into any situation, especially if there is food involved. Most things that happen in the jungle happen to Ellyvan, but his cheery demeanor always wins him through.
Ellyvan is very popular with the rest of the inhabitants, especially the younger ones because he has a child like quality about him and knows lots of funny stories although he often becomes confused because oddly enough for an elephant, he has a terrible memory. He is Zooters best friend.
In addition to his delivery van chores for the general store, he is a part-time fire-fighter who helps Crocker, the fire chief, if a job is too big for him to handle alone.
Ellyvan is available to buy as a Single Figure Pack or he also comes in the following play sets: Wheels Around Fun Set and the big iconic Jungle Junction Play set.
Each Ellyvan figure comes with a different facial expression - collect them all!
Ellyvan can be found in the following sets:
Bath time characters
Ellyvan pull back character
Wheel around fun set
Hippobus is a female hippopotamus / bus.
Hippobus lives in a house just outside of town with a wallowing pool.
Kind and caring are her middle names and she is always ready to lend a wheel. Her job is to take the Beetle Bugs to school and on day trips to interesting places in the jungle. She loves the mischievous little things and acts as a mother to all of them.
Hippobus is available to buy as a big yellow smiley school bus play set, Hippobus and Beetle Bugs play set, which delivers the Beetle Bugs safe and sound to school. Complete with working sounds, all five multi-coloured Beetle Bugs, plus Stop and Go signs for crossing the road, Hippobus can open out to reveal the rows of comfortable seats and slide.
Meet Miss Jolly
Miss Jolly is a female Zebra / off-road vehicle.Miss Jolly lives in a house in town. She's Jungle Junction's teacher specialising in all subjects for the Beetle Bugs pupils, who love her very much. she is a bit of a ditherer and can get rather over enthused in a scatter brained kind of way, but she has an amazing thirst for knowledge and because she is an off-road type, loves the outdoor life and often takes the bugs on long field trips involving Hippobus. Miss Jolly loves nothing more than throwing herself one hundred percent into preparing her little charges for a full, rewarding future in Jungle Junction.
She is currently available to buy within a Jungle Junction Duo Tube accompanied by two Beetle Bugs.
Taxicrab is a male crab / taxi.
He lives in a houseboat on the river that passes through the town.
A cheery, 'cabbie' type who likes to think of himself as a bit of a philosopher who'll happily tell you how he would solve the jungle's problems. He is also the only one of the jungle inhabitants that can swivel his wheels and drive sideways, which often takes the others by surprise! He loves to dance and can be a bit of a show off with his amazing juggling skills which come in handy at the juice bar which he owns and runs in Jungle Junction!
He can mix up the most delicious fruit smoothies using ingredients from the jungle, which go down extremely well with the Jungle Junction inhabitants, particularly Ellyvan who is fond of his Boogie Banana Surprise.
Taxicrab is available to buy within the Taxicrab's Boat playset or in a Jungle Junction Duo Tube accompanied by his pal Bungo!
Toadhog is a male toad / car.
He lives in the town in the river's edge in a house with a rather impressive water wheel.
A small, grouchy, irritating, busybody who always seems to be late or in a hurry to get somewhere (nobody knows why he is in a hurry or where he is hurrying to). He believes everything that happens in the jungle is deliberately done to slow down and annoy him. Always grumpy and complaining he mostly just cares about himself although he does have a rarely seen soft side which can take the other inhabitants by surprise. It should also be pointed out that he is rather partial to the odd juicy fly which he tries unsuccessfully (causing him great frustration) to catch with his long sticky tongue.
Zooter is a female piglet / messenger bike.
She lives in the town in a treehouse. Everyone knows Zooter, she's cute, friendly, full of energy, with a real 'can do' spirit and always keen to help. The speediest of the jungle inhabitants, she's running errands and spreading the latest news and gossip. She knows the jungle inside out and uses a bewildering network of shortcuts that only she understands. She likes nothing better than whiling away her spare time with her best friend Ellyvan. Though young, she's older than the Beetle Bugs having just graduated from Miss Jolly's school.
Zooter is available to buy as a cuddly plush toy and in the following play sets: Wheel Around Fun Set, plus the iconic Jungle Junction Play set. Each figure has a different expression!
