A Toniebox is a speaker made just for kids that can play stories, music, and more. Our kits include a Toniebox, headphones, and several Tonies (little figures that you place on the speaker to start the audio). Kids can discover a whole world of stories, music, and learning – all audio, no screens! You can even listen to recordings of Miss Mary Beth’s storytimes. The Tonieboxes are designed for little listeners ages 3+ (or younger with a little more help). We also have 6 themed Story Packs with 5 Tonies each to keep your little one engaged: Disney I and II, Favorite Stories I and II, Popular Characters and Mindfulness + Music.
