Immediate Media is launching a standalone magazine for popular Cbeebies programme Tree Fu Tom.

The title - which hits newsstands on September 11th - is set in 'Treetopolis', and takes readers on an adventure with Tom, who calls upon them to be heroes and help him by performing 'Tree Fu' moves to create magic. Developed alongside an expert in the field of Developmental Dyspraxia, it is the only title giving children the opportunity to experience all-round physical development including spatial concepts, balance and fluency of movement.

Each issue will carry an exclusive covermount that also supports physical development and role-play. The launch issue comes with a Tree Fu Tom figurine, a wing up bug and crayons.

Sara Oldham, editor of BBC Tree Fu Tom magazine, said: "It's been great fun making the magical and physical aspect of Tree Fu Tom come to life within a magazine. We've consulted the leading experts to find new ways of engaging children with activities that require physical movement to create a unique learning tool which will enhance the development of all children at a crucial time in their growth."

Pauline Cooke, publisher of Immediate Media's pre-school titles, added: "We know this magazine's lively approach to learning is going to be a fantastic addition to Immediate's pre-schoole portfolio."
