Tree Tom Fu is a physical movement-focused series that follows Tom (your run-of-the-mill 8 year old), who is able to perform magic action movements – known as Tree Fu – when he puts on his magic belt, which transforms and transports him to the enchanted kingdom. The series uses therapeutic movement techniques that are used to help kids with movement disorders such as Dyspraxia, but also support physical development for all kids. The series also features a corresponding interactive website, created by Plug In Media, which includes games and activities. Parent support content and behind the scenes footage and interviews will also be available at http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/grownups/.
