tonies® is excited to announce the arrival of the Soft Cuddly Friends Tonies, in collaboration with German plush toy brand Steiff. Combining the magical power of storytelling with the beautiful, soft plushes, the new Steiff collection is sure to surprise and delight little ones and introduce them to a love of stories.
Each of the three Soft Cuddly Friends Tonies contains six charming stories by Katrin Wiegand, adapted by Jayne Kirkham and told beautifully by Rob Rackstraw. Little listeners can join in on the Soft Cuddly Friends’ adventures, as they tell the story of Lisa’s toy shop and Lita Lamb (right), Hoppie Rabbit (above) and Jimmy Bear coming to life. The characters take a ride on the magical, mystical moonbeam slide to the Land of The Soft Cuddly Friends and their adventures begin.
As well as the beautiful Steiff Soft Cuddly Friends Tonies, tonies® is adding three exciting new characters to its incredible portfolio this November: Disney Princess Belle, nostalgic favourite Pippi Longstocking and Sesame Street’s Elmo.
Beauty and the Beast
Disney’s much-loved story Beauty and the Beast is brought to life on the Toniebox together with a collection of the film’s most popular songs little listeners will love to sing along to. Follow the adventures of spirited young village girl, Belle as she encounters the Beast, an unruly prince that’s fallen under the spell of a wicked enchantress. A love story with a twist, this magical tale as old as time is sure to capture young hearts.
Pippi Longstocking lives in a house with a horse, a monkey, a suitcase full of gold, and no grown-ups to tell her what to do. Gifted with superhuman strength, Pippi is a rebellious but sweet young girl full of crazy ideas. Mismatched stockings, red hair and freckles combined with a unique independent spirit and a taste for adventure, Pippi is a girl who lives by her own rules. A cultural icon and one of the most popular children’s characters of all time, Pippi’s extraordinary escapades have been entertaining young readers for 75 years, and are set to delight another generation on the Toniebox, narrated by television favourite Sandi Toksvig.
Everybody loves Elmo! Elmo’s sunny disposition is completely infectious in this wonderful collection of songs, stories, and interactive sketches guaranteed to put a smile on your child’s face. Little listeners will love to sing along with Elmo’s renditions of popular nursery rhymes and children’s songs, including ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, and ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’.
The Toniebox comes to life when paired with our whimsical collection of Tonies: hand-painted characters with hours of stories to tell, worlds to explore, and songs to sing along with. Each collectible character magnetically attaches to the Toniebox, making it simple for little listeners to change stories whenever they want!
