Since Tree Fu Tom the programme launched on CBeebies, it has always been in Miss M’s list of favourites so she was really excited when we were given the chance to try Tree Fu Tom’s Magic Sapstone Belt and Holopax, part of the new range of Tree Fu Tom toys from Flair.
The Tree Fu Tom TV series is set in an enchanted world where movement creates magic. Tom may appear to be a normal eight-year-old boy, but by putting on his magic belt and performing a special sequence of magic action-movements (known as Tree Fu), he transforms into a tiny but mighty magical super-hero! The show advocates the importance of movement and encourages kids to get up and move as they help Tom make Tree Fu magic and save the day!
As soon as we received the Magic Sapstone Belt and Holopax set, there was an immediate battle between Miss M and Mister B as to who was going to wear it first! The belt has a motion activated glow – the more the child moves, the brighter the Sapstone glows. Miss M loved this and couldn’t wait to for the next episode of Tree Fu Tom to come on so she could join in the actions. It really does encourage children to move about – I don’t think she’s ever sat down whilst wearing it and is constantly running up and down the hallway and dancing around the front room in order to get the light to glow.
This is definitely a great toy to encourage activity in a child and even more fun if they are big Tree Fu Tom fans which mine are – Mister B tries to go to bed wearing the Holopax on his wrist – something he now wears all day long!!
Miss M’s final verdict:
Tree Fu Tom toys can be bought from Toys r us and The Entertainer.
