All eyes are looking towards Tonies! The smash-hit story-telling Toniebox edutainment toy has landed in Hong Kong after taking Europe and the US by storm. But what exactly are Tonies and how do they work? We take a closer look.
A good story is always a winner for our kids and we’re always on the hunt for new ways to engage their little imaginations and creativity. With Tonies, their favourite characters (ranging from Disney classics to Peppa Pig) come to life, simply by placing a figurine on top of the Toniebox. It’s a brilliant, screen-free approach to language learning (even the experts from HKU agree!). Bedtime stories just got better with a touch of edutainment thanks to the Toniebox!
What’s Inside The Toniebox Starter Set? Screen-Free Edutainment!
Each Toniebox Starter Set comes with the musical story box (pictured above and available in six fun colours), pre-loaded with an hour of songs and stories, as well as one Creative Tonie (the figurine). This Creative-Tonie lets you upload up to 90-minutes of extra stories, and songs as well as record your own messages for your kids.
Tonie Characters – Songs & Stories of Disney, Peppa Pig And More!
Then the fun part — you can customise your Toniebox and personalise it for your child. Got a kid who is Disney mad? Pick up the Cars, Frozen, Lion King, Toy Story or Mickey Mouse Tonie! Peppa Pig fans are also kept happy with Peppa Pig On The Road stories and there’s also classic Children’s Songs (pictured above). Plus, you can pick up matching cases (which hold up to 24 individual Tonies) along with headphones for taking your Toniebox on the go.
How Do Kids Play With The Award-Winning Toniebox?
The clever thing about Tonies is the innovative design (it even won the prestigious “Best Of The Best” Red Dot Design Award and the “Disney Creative Award” amongst others). The figurines are the perfect size for little fingers to manoeuvre putting them in the driver’s seat for storytime. As they hear the story, they’re activating creativity and imagination, while listening helps increase their vocabulary and English language skills.
The Toniebox is soft enough to take to bed and can be loaded with lullabies or even messages from parents to help send them off to sleep while being durable enough to take outside and on the go. Sassy Mama is also loving that the Toniebox uses the latest technology to offer an interactive, screen-free experience for our kids.
