Tree Fu Tom join the fun, come along now everyone.

Move with Tom, he needs you to save the day and do Tree Fu![/box]

For most parents of either a pre-school or school age child you will most likely be aware of Tree Fu Tom and his friends from Treetopolis.  Not only is the theme tune catchy (it’s currently playing in head as I type) but throughout the episodes he encourages children to get up with his famous Tree Fu Tom Rap song…

We need to turn the magic on. We need to save the day come on. Just follow me and you will see. The magic comes from you and me. To make Tree Fu spells do what you see. Slide to the side. And jump right back. Hold your hands up high. Spin around, reach up for the sky. Touch your nose. Now make a pose! Clap your hands. Touch your knees and run with me. When you move you make the magic. Do what I do, to make the magic. Turn that turn that turn that turn that Tree Fu magic on[/box]

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

Tigger absolutely his new Tree Fu Tom Ranger Utility Belt, so much so that it is put on as he gets up in a morning and is worn throughout out the day (mealtimes included).  Personally I really like the concept of it, allowing a children to be just like Tree Fu Tom but without having to ‘dress up’ as such, great for Tigger who isn’t too keen on fancy dress costumes.

As the set is suitable from 3+ years and the programme itself is aimed at pre-school and school age children the manufacturers really need to rethink the sizing of the belt.  Tigger is a small three year old and I have had to double over the belt to get it remotely fit him.  I tried it on Roo thinking that maybe Tigger just wasn’t big enough for it, however even at 7 years old the belt fastened on its smallest setting was too big.  The addition of a hook n loop fastening or the ability to adjust the belt either side might just solve the problem.

Priced a RRP £19.99, I think it is a good price especially when you compare it to a fancy dress outfit which is generally only a one or two piece set, this comes with so much more.

Available to buy from Amazon, Smyths Toys and other good toy retailers.
