Tonieboxes Now Available to Borrow

A bright pink digital speaker device known as a Toniebox with a toy figurine on top in the foreground. In the background two little girls sit across from each other listening to the device and playing with two small toy figurines.

A Toniebox is a screen-free digital speaker that plays stories, songs, and more when paired with a magnetic figurine called a Tonie. The perfect storytime companion, you can change audio at any time by simply placing a new Tonie figurine on top of the speaker.

Designed for ages 3+, Tonieboxes are a great way to encourage independent play and spark the imagination. The controls are designed with little listeners (and little hands) in mind, so kids can easily adjust volume, fast forward, rewind, and change stories all on their own.

Tonieboxes offer a unique listening experience that use audio storytelling to introduce pre-readers and developing readers to the wonders of stories and music. Turn it on, pop a Tonie on top and let the adventure begin! It is a kid-safe media platform with content from premium partners including National Geographic, Penguin Random House, Disney, and LeVar Burton.

Discover the joy of storytelling with your children by combining stories and play! Tonieboxes spark curiosity and imagination in kids, helping them to create and explore new worlds on their own.
