I try to limit TV time, I really do, but sometimes when the kitchen floor is covered in rice krispies and the carpet is littered with play doh, letting the kids watch TV is gives me time to tidy up. However, with children of different ages what to watch can be an issue. Z wants ‘Scooby Doo’, or ‘Ben 10’. Neither of which I really approve of. Little S wants ‘Charlie and Lola’ and H ‘Peppa’ or the ‘Octonauts’. Finding something was difficult, until we found’ Tree Fu Tom’.
Z loves it because the boy is bigger than him, S thinks its for boys which pleases her and H likes the moves! I like it because its not violent, the stories are sweet with a lovely message behind them and it even gets the kids up off the sofa and jumping around a few times each episode.
What more can you ask for?
Thank you CBeebies!

We tend to go through phases of watching different TV Channels, but I have to admit that we are on a Cbeebies one at the moment. I just love how everything is educational!
not seen this, but then again when J watches tv he usually requests Peppa or Ben & Holly!
would like to be a yummy mummy
Poppy loves that but Rosie just wants Peppa pig and nothing else. I try to limit tv too but sometimes especially when cleaning kitchen floor its a life saver x

My daughter, 23 months loves Tree Fu Tom too and tries to copy all the moves, it’s so cute. I end up getting some exercise as she asks me to do them with her too. The one that gets her to stand still is Shrek at the moment, she even kisses the DVD cover, no comment. If a big green ogre appeases the terrible twos, I’m gonna use it!

Ella jumps up & does the moves too…clever Cbeebies. It’s on a lot in our house! 😉
Its fab isn’t it? x
Is that the one that the music sounds like ‘Peeping Tom?’ My girls love that but I’m usually in the kitchen getting tea ready, I did think that was a weird name for a kids show and wondered what on earth he was peeing at. That’ll teach me to pay more attention!
My daughter is completely in love with Tree Fu Tom! She is always singing the song and dancing along to it! We arrange tea time for around the same time so she can eat and then sit and finally have the TV on!! What would we do without Cbeebies hey!
I’d be even more insane!
