Mr Men and Little Miss Tonies to launch this April

Leading children’s audio system tonies is launching three Mr. Men and Little Miss Tonies this April, adding to its ever-growing portfolio of stories for children to enjoy on their Tonieboxes.

The popular series by author and illustrator Roger Hargreaves has been delighting children and adults alike since 1971, and now three of the troop’s most endearing characters are set to come to life as Tonie figurines to enchant a new generation of fans.

A great introduction to one of the most iconic collection of children’s books, the new tonies include the first-ever Mr. Men character Mr. Tickle (running time approx 35 mins), joined by Mr. Strong (approx 38 mins) and Little Miss Sunshine (approx 38 mins), each poised to transport listeners aged 3 and over all the way to Happyland for three very different adventures.

Liz Peters, Head of Portfolio UK & IR, says: “We are so excited to welcome Mr. Men Little Miss to our Tonies portfolio, and Mr. Strong, Mr. Tickle and Little Miss Sunshine are three of our highlights for Spring 2022. We’ve worked with some top voiceover talent to record these audio productions, including Kathryn Drysdale, of recent Bridgerton fame.”

Silvia Figini, Chief Operating Officer Sanrio – EMEA, India and Oceania, and Mr. Men –Worldwide, adds: “We are happy to partner with Tonies to see Mr. Men Little Miss stories transposed into a new educational, fun and innovative format. We are confident that the timeless iconicity of Roger Hargreaves’ stories, combined with this immediate and accessible technology, will thrill children and parents alike.”

The new Tonies are available from selected toy retailers, bookshops and via the tonies website www.tonies.com, RRP £14.99.

Four new characters join the Tonies lineup
