We'd given Tom a 'Magic Tree' for his birthday last year and the Podlings all enjoyed watching it grow, so when I found this Christmas themed magic tree I knew they would love it. Once we put the tree together and added the 'magic' water, it is a bit of a waiting game. The first crystals appear within an hour and after about six hours it looks quite impressive. It kept the Podlings amused for an afternoon and looked rather pretty by the end. Not bad for £1.99!
