When Tree Fu Tom hit our screens on Cbeebies, my eldest son instantly loved the programme and would tell everyone his favourite programme was “Tree fu Tom!!” and they would mostly look back with confusion as they tended to be people who had yet to be introduced! A couple of years on, I’m glad to say that when he talks about Tree Fu Tom, he gets less confused looks and more “oh!! that’s the one with the boy in the acorn hat!!” to which he usually replies in a disgruntled manner “no, that’s Twigs..”…but I digress.
The lovely PR people for Tree Fu Tom sent us a selection of goodies which arrived just in time for half term:
I have to say, I was really impressed with the Tree Fu Tom magazine, the free gifts were actually very playable with and the wind up toy has been in daily use since it arrived! The magazine itself is a great balance of a stories, educational activities and fun, my youngest son loved the cutting out! It’s very good value, and we will definitely be buying it over the next few weeks!
The carry along colour set is ideal for taking on days out, it’s small enough to fit in my handbag but big enough that the images are fun to colour! The boys both enjoyed this, and I enjoyed the peace and quiet of some colouring time!
The search for Squizzle story book, features lift up flaps which the boys both enjoyed unveiling to show us what was coming next in the story! My eldest son who is 5 enjoyed the story very much, and attempted to read some of the story himself, my younger son (aged 32months) wanted to fast track some of the pages and just turn the flaps! I very much enjoyed reading them the story, and liked the fact they still get to be active while reading – there is a bit where they need to do the tree fu moves!
We were also sent a fabulous DVD which arrived with a tree fu tom figure, this has been played with none stop and I noticed the boys acting out the adventures while watching the DVD! There are six full length episodes on the DVD, and we found that watching them one at a time was plenty! After watching one episode the boys wanted to go outside and explore or act out Tom’s adventures! This was great fun, and was a perfect starting point to lots of our half-term fun!
