Is The Toniebox Worth Gifting This Year? Here Are Our Thoughts

Christmas is just around the corner and it's the last chance to order any remaining gifts — before the delivery dates say “delivered on the 26th of December”.

Gifting seasons are stressful, especially when you have kids to buy for, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered this year…

Enter: The Toniebox, a screen-free essential for kids.

The Toniebox is a soft, squishy, indestructible musical story box designed to entertain children up to 8 years of age. It comes with Tonies, hand-painted collectibles of your children's favourite characters.

You pop the magnetic Tonie on the Toniebox — and listen to songs, stories and joy that bring each character to life. The Toniebox has 7 hours of battery life, so it will keep them entertained for hours. In fact, according to research, children engage with the Toniebox 148 times more than other toys.

Kids simply pop, tap, tilt and squeeze the ears on the Toniebox to navigate through their preferred stories and songs. Some of the most popular Tonies they offer are Paddington Bear, Frozen, Peppa Pig, Gruffalo, Paw Patrol.

According to The National Literacy Trust, listening to audiobooks is entertaining and educational, as it improves vocabulary and literacy skills.

With the Toniebox, your kids can engage in screen-free entertainment from wake up to wind down. Limiting screen time in the early years is key. 97% of parents say the Toniebox helps to keep bedtime routines on track with many relaxing sleep stories and even white noise.

For fresh or more advanced stories, just change the Tonies — which you can purchase individually. So for the following years, you don’t have to worry about what to get your child; a new Tonie for their Toniebox — it's really the gift that will grow with your kids.

The Toniebox costs about £79.95, and an individual Tonie £14.99. Or you can get creative and build your own bundle, which gives you up to 20% off! And let's not forget about the Creative-Tonies, which have 90 minutes of recording time — perfect for saving all those stories from grandparents.

The Toniebox is a terrific gift for kids. It keeps them occupied, enhances their knowledge and motor skills, all while they collect charming, hand-painted figurines. And it’s definitely worth every penny.

So get gifting and watch your little ones’ faces come alive with stories and songs this Christmas, thanks to the Toniebox.
