It’s always a sweet thing to have fond memories of your children playing with favorite toys. I love the conversations we had with them and hearing them chat to their toys and get excited to see “cause and effect” during play. Their wonder and awe, even now as they grow up, always makes me smile. They grow up so fast! 

I was given the Bright Starts™ Jungle Fun Ball Climber to review, and as it sat in my living room, my kids were playing with it through the packaging. I think the idea of anything new coming into the house is cause for excitement. Obviously, I couldn’t do a true review of a toddler-aged product using my kids… So I knew exactly where to go!


Gratefully, I have plenty of nieces and nephews that can be my toy testers, and I’ve missed spending time with them. I took this opportunity to spread some magic, and have a play date! 


My nieces LOVED the Bright Starts™ Jungle Fun Ball Climber! They are ages 3 and 4. The toy is labeled for ages 6 months – 36 months, but like I said, my 7 & 10 year old were pretty awe-struck.


It was a sure hit, and the youngest, KB, just was so tickled by the animal sounds and music that played. She squealed with delight and we talked about the colors, counted, and tried to figure out the different animal sounds!

The balls climb up the tree trunk, then roll above the hippo, bounce off the yellow edge, and INTO the hippo’s mouth! 

The toy comes with 4 colored balls, the Jungle Climber, and BATTERIES! That’s always a plus. There’s nothing worse than buying a toy, unpacking it, only to realize it needs some power. Once you get it out of the package, you’re set up for countless hours of play. 

We had a great time playing and learning together.  Thank you Bright Starts™!
