We wanted to create a way for children to experience storytelling in a digital age that stimulates their imagination while being educational and fun but also, and this was the main point, a screen-free experience! We made the Toniebox for kids (and parents) who want to feel good about their entertainment at home and to bring back imagination in its purest form.
We built tonies® to be an immersive, wondrous experience you can feel good about, but more importantly a community you can be part of now and for many years to come. From our dream to your home, welcome to tonies®. We’re happy your family is a part of our story."
