Tree Fu Tom Magic Sapstone Belt and Holopax Set Review

Tree Fu Tom is one of Sasha's favourite CBeebies programmes. To explain the programme to you, I've lifted some text from the blog of a man (Dan) who helped create it:

"Tom is able to create magic by doing sequences of cool-looking, simple, fun movements called 'Tree Fu'. Using Tree Fu, Tom is able to transform into a magical superhero, travelling to 'Treetopolis' - an enchanted, miniature world nestled in an ancient tree at the bottom of his garden.
In every adventure there are critical moments when Tom's normal action and magic skills are not enough to overcome the challenges that he and his friends face.
At these times the audience is encouraged to get up and copy Tom's Tree Fu moves to help create 'Big World Magic'. In this way, the audience can help Tom to save the day, and be heroes too!
Tree Fu Tom
What the children won't know is that the 'Tree Fu' spell moves they're copying have all been designed by Child Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists from the movements that experts use to help children with conditions like Dyspraxia to assist and enhance the development of all participating children (whether they have movement challenges or not)"

It's this last paragraph that I particularly like and hadn't actually realised about the show myself before now. Sasha loves doing the actions, as you can see in this little clip:

What Sasha is wearing is a brand new product we were sent to try out - the Magic Sapstone Belt and Holopax set. 

They are just like those that Tom wears in the series. Batteries need to be inserted to the belt, and after a short burst of energy, the middle bit lights up. Then the more you move around, the more the light glows, which of course was a good enough reason for lots of rushing around pretending to be Tom. Sasha absolutely loved it! 

This product, and others in the range, are now available from Toys R Us and The Entertainer.

We were sent the above toy for the purpose of this review, but have not received payment. All the views expressed here are our own.
