Bedtime Stories Across the Miles with Toniebox

When I first heard of Toniebox at the Sweet Suite @ Home Virtual Event by The Toy Insider, I had no idea how much I was going to like it. Toniebox launched in the US on September 1st of this year, however, the official launch is September 23rd. 

When I visit my grandkids, they always want me to read them a bedtime story. Since I can't be there year round, the Toniebox makes perfect sense.

What is a Toniebox

A box that allows you to record up to 90 minutes of stories, music or whatever message you want to send. We received the starter box which included the Toniebox, charger, a creative Tonie, and five additional Tonie figures; Pinocchio, Lion King, Ariel (Little Mermaid), Woody (Toy Story), and a children's playtime and action songs.

The volume can either be quiet or loud, however, there is also a headphone jack which is perfect for quiet hours. What I like is that I can change the stories by going online even when I'm 1000's miles away.

Head over to the app on your phone or online a desktop and you can delete the old story and record a new one. It tells you how much time you have left.

How to Setup

Setup was fairly easy. Once I plugged it in and set it on the charger, I downloaded the app (available for IOS and Android,) created an account, connected it to my Wifi, and away we went.

Here's a tip...When it says to press the ears in order to connect to the Wifi, press the large ears on the top of the box, not on the Tonie. 🙄😂

I recorded a short story to see how it worked. Once recorded, I placed the creative Tonie on top of the box, and he started to play. I was impressed.

How It Works

After I tried it out with a personal recording, I wanted to see what Woody did. I placed him on top, and it started playing Toy Story music. It tells you in the booklet with each Tonie, the names of the songs and how many. After the songs, he started telling the story.

If you want to fast forward to the next song, just tap the right side of the box. If you want to rewind to the previous song, tap the left side. Adjust the volume by pressing the right or left ear on the box.
