tonies® was born with the belief that audio has the power to ignite a child’s imagination and enable them to discover and learn more. 

Founded in 2016 by two fathers and entrepreneurs, Patric Faßbender and Marcus Stahl, tonies® is defining a new era for children’s audio systems with the award-winning Toniebox

The Toniebox: revolutionising audio for kids

Aimed at ages 3+, the no-screens Toniebox is a small, softly padded audio speaker available in every favourite colour. Designed to replace bright and over-stimulating screens, the Toniebox is revolutionising how young children listen and play at the same time.

This portable and water-resistant storytime companion is perfect for even the smallest of hands and the wildest of imaginations, giving children easy and instant access to hundreds of adventures at their fingertips. They’ll enjoy the freedom to embrace a world of exciting adventure with this introduction to the magical world of narrative and storytelling, one that will instil a passion for reading that will last a lifetime. 

With tactile controls that will make you smile – simply squeeze the ears to change the volume, tap the sides to switch chapters and tilt to fast-forward or rewind – the Toniebox presents an immersive experience, that’s both fun and educational. 

With a battery life of 7 hours once charged, children can take music and storytime wherever they go.

The Toniebox is soft enough to cuddle up to and robust enough to play with, which makes it great for children of all ages. And when it comes to your child’s bedtime routine, the Toniebox transforms into the perfect sleepy-time friend, with a whole host of dreamy content to lull your little one into a golden slumber. 

Meet the Tonies 

Children can bring their Toniebox to life with a huge selection of stories and songs in the form of collectable hand-painted figurines called Tonies. Tonies arrive ready to go, pre-loaded with content so that within moments, even the youngest of listeners can use their Toniebox independently. 

Choose from popular fairy tales, and well-known classics like Wind in the Willows and Peter Pan, to modern day favourites such as Frozen and Julia Donaldson‘s contemporary classics Room on the Broom, The Gruffalo and Zog.

There’s also a growing portfolio of educational content for children to enjoy, with an exciting collection of ‘How and Why’ adventures, and a brand-new National Geographic Kids collaboration, featuring dinosaur, astronaut, whale and penguin Tonies.

What makes this wireless, shockproof speaker unique and completely irresistible to kids is that it cleverly combines the concept of audio and the wonder of narrative with every child’s fascination with technology.
