Tonies Story Character - The Gruffalo
Tonieboxes are a fantastic new way of listening to stories and songs - allowing you to combine book characters with the speaker system to listen to your favourite stories.
This Gruffalo Tonie will play the much loved children's story The Gruffalo, by Julia Donaldson and it also includes a bonus Gruffalo song. Story is read by Imelda Staunton. Running time is approx 17 mins.
Please note you need a Tonie Box to play this Tonie story on - these are available to purchase separately - please click here to view/buy online at Giddy Goat Toys.
Listen, play, collect. Our Tonies are up for everything!
Handcrafted for hands-on play. Every Tonie is hand-painted, yet tough enough to be part of the fun not just on, but also off the box.
It magically…sorry, magnetically attaches to your Toniebox, allowing you to listen to something different every time. Just pop on another Tonie and quickly jump in between audiobooks, music or your own interactive audio adventures.
When you put listening and playing together...
...something magical happens.
Let your children’s imagination run free. Toniebox and Tonies offer endless interactive listening and playing fun without bright screens, scratched CDs or complicated controls.
How does it work?
The Toniebox is the speaker. Tonies are characters that are about 7cm high and which are magnetic so will sit on the Toniebox. There are two types of Tonies - Character Tonies which play specific stories, story collections or song collection and Creative Tonies which you can record your own stories or songs onto.
Pop a Tonie on the box and let the fun begin
When you put a Tonie on for the first time, its story will download directly onto the Toniebox. But how does it all work?
The Toniebox instantly recognises who's standing on top, and they have the magic key. The key unlocks the right audio files so the box can download them from the Toniecloud. The story will begin immediately. Once the LED turns solid green, the audio content has been completely downloaded, and you can play it anywhere without a Wi-Fi connection.
Launched in Germany in 2016 as a sturdy yet fun and playful way of allowing chidlren to enjoy stories, Tonies became a sensation across mainland Europe, with over two and a half million selling in just over a year. Both tactile and sturdy they are perfect for children of all ages, easy to set up and easy to use.
