We absolutley love the Tonie boxes, and we’re so pleased to have them at the top of our gift list this year.

Everybody is concerned about kid’s screen time and especially with lockdown, their Ipads are probably being used more than ever. You don’t need to worry about screen time with the Tonie boxes though, they let your children’s imagination run free with no bright screens and endless listening without complicated controls.

2. The Tonie characters

Perfectly accompanying the Tonie Boxes, are the Tonie characters!

They tell absolutley beutiful stories, from dinosaurs to snowmen, footballers to the lion king, theres something for any child. The stories grow with your child as well, with more simplistic shorter stories ideal for younger children up to inquisitive tweens who want to learn about dinosaurs and astronauts.

There’s also creative Tonies! The creative Tonies allow you to record yourself telling the story for the child. Gret for long distance grandparents or family members as a source of comfort when you can’t be with them. They are a truly heartwarming gift this christmas.
