GOOD POINTS: The eagerly awaited DVD of the popular Tree Fu Tom children's series is finally here (released on 22nd October 2012) where young children can follow Tom, Twigs and all the Treetopolis gang on their magical adventures!

Currently showing on the CBeebies channel, Tree Fu Tom is centred around a boy called Tom and his many adventures in the enchanted kingdom of Treetopolis. But Tom is no ordinary boy. When he puts on his magic belt and performs a special sequence of movements (using the power of Tree Fu), he transforms into a super hero and is able to use 'Big World Magic' to avert disaster and help his friends - Twigs, an amusing acorn sprite who is Tom's best friend and sidekick; Ariela, a beautiful but tough little butterfly; Zigzoo, an eccentric tree frog inventor; and Squirmtum, a kind-hearted woodlouse. But watch out for the Mushas, a mischievous pair of fungi called Stink and Puffy who just love causing trouble!

The wonderful feature of this series is that it encourages children to get active and join along with Tom as he performs all his special Tree Fu moves and actions to unlock the magic - notably these movements have been developed from therapeutic techniques that are used to help children with disorders such as Dyspraxia.

Featuring the voices of both David Tennant and Sophie Aldred, this lovely DVD contains seven action-packed episodes in all, with each episode focusing on a different adventure. The series provides plenty of sensory stimulation for young children through its bold and colourful animation, as well as its wonderful use of background sound effects and music.

Each episode lasts approximately twenty minutes, with the catchy Tree Fu Tom theme tune at both the start and end of each. There is also the option for your child to watch all the episodes back-to-back or to simply choose their favourite.

In our opinion, this is a really fun and well thought-out animated series for young children that stretches their imaginations and has many developmental benefits...a great gift for Tree Fu Tom fans everywhere!

BAD POINTS: None that we can find!
