This durable, plastic play station is set up as an arc, with a slide for balls wrapping around the center support and a bright orange monkey sitting above the slide. The monkey's hands are cupped so that kids can practice balancing balls in them, and his arms move. Each time your child uses a ball or their hand to move one of his arms, he breaks out in song and stimulating, colored lights on the front of the jungle flash.
One song with a fun beat begins, "Walk like an elephant, stomp, stomp, stomp." Another says it's "time to move, fast or slow." Kids ability to clap with these tunes or sing along really makes playtime in the jungle more fun. Best of all, there's several different songs, so parents and kids don't have to keep listening to the same tune over and over again.
In addition to the music and the slide for balls at the center of the jungle, there's a spinning hippo at one end of the arc and a big blue elephant at the other. The hollow elephant has openings in his ears, and when baby drops a ball into them, it comes shooting out his mouth, often eliciting a bout of laughter. If your baby is crawling or walking, he's sure to tire himself right out chasing after run-away balls. There's another set of fun features to help keep the jungle interesting for younger children, especially those who are not yet cruising around on their own. There's also a hanging rattle ball, an alligator on a swing that moves back and forth, and a safe, plastic mirror shaped like the sun so that baby can contemplate her reflection. All these different toys mean that the Musical Jungle stays interesting as children develop new skills.
Durable, Dependable Construction for Safety
We really appreciated how strong the top arch is. Despite being made of plastic, our adult tester was able to lean on this arch without feeling like it was about to break. This is good news for parents of children who are learning to pull themselves up or still need to hold onto an object while standing, since there's no need to worry about the sturdy, stable Musical Jungle coming apart and hurting or disappointing a child.
All in all, we found lots of ways to have fun with the Musical Jungle. Despite the fact that this set is recommended for children up to 36 months old, we found the activities it offers and the infant-friendly look more suited to younger children. There are many great reviews of this jungle set out there, and it seems like most often they come from parents with a child who has not yet turned two.
This toy requires adult assembly. You'll need a Phillips screwdriver and a little bit of patience. While the included instructions do an excellent job of illustrating each step in the assembly process, snapping the pieces together and getting the screws secured takes a bit of effort. Despite the time involved, we really appreciated the fact that this activity set uses real hardware to provide a very solid structure.
The Musical Jungle is much stronger than plastic toys assembled solely from snap-together pieces, and the parts can be unscrewed by an adult if you want to disassemble the jungle for storage, another feature that similar products often overlook. Three AA batteries are included to power the lights and sounds.

This song will haunt your dreams.
The toy itself is reasonably easy to put together, if you're familiar with assembling toys. Fisher Price is one of the few companies out there that provide instructions that aren't written by and for masochists. Keep in mind that it is quite large, and once you've put it together, that's it. It isn't designed to be taken apart and reassembled multiple times.
When the music and lights are turned on, this is probably one of our daughter's favorite toys. She's had it for about three months now, and it's really interesting to see how her motor skills and interests have developed between 6 months and 9 months. There are enough things to play with on this that it's kept her interest going, especially now that she's using it to pull herself up to stand.
Keeping a close eye on your baby is a must with this toy, especially once he or she starts standing. The palm leaves above the elephant and hippo aren't sharp, but they are pointy. In the picture, the green dome below the monkey is where the balls come out after they've gone down the ramp -- if they're the balls that came with this toy. If you have any other toy balls around, your baby will almost certainly find them, drop them down the ramp, and get them stuck in the dome.
My only real contention with this toy is the price. On one hand, yes, it's built very well. But on the other, 95% of this toy is just injection-molded plastic from China. You're paying a huge premium for the Fisher Price name and about four dollars worth of electronics.
My suggestion is to watch your little one closely when playing with this toy. My son was being supervised and still received quite a scrape on his cheek due to falling against the leaves from the tree above the elephant. The leaves are kind of sharp, a design flaw in my opinion. My nephew did the same thing on this toy as well. Kids learning to walk will fall so hopefully Fisher Price will figure out a way to make the leaves not as sharp on this product.
