Launch of new Tonies including Masha and the Bear and Mr Bean

Published on: 8th September 2021

The additions to the children’s audio system include the iconic Mr Bean and characters Marshall and Skye for pre-school hit Paw Patrol. 

Tonies is adding new Tonies to its range this month including Masha and the Bear, Mr Bean and Paw Patrol’s Marshall and Skye.

The Masha and the Bear and Mr Bean Tonies will be available to purchase from today (8th September), while Paw Patrol’s Marshall and Skye will be available from 16th September.

Set in Adventure Bay, Paw Patrol features the antics of six heroic pups who use their skills to work together on high-stake rescue missions. The Marshall Tonie includes stories Pups Find a Genie, Pups Save a Tightrope Walker, Pups Save a Goldrush, and Pups Save the Paw Patroller, while the new Skye Tonie features stories Pirate Pups to the Rescue and Pups save Puplantis.

Comedy character Mr Bean has also been transformed into a Tonie, bringing his collection of catchy songs to children.

Kids can also follow the adventures of Masha and the Bear, with the new Tonie which features a funny and entertaining story about friendship, based loosely on a Russian fairy tale.

The Tonies and Tonieboxes operate through a wireless digital system which connects to an NFC chip within each Tonie using Wi-Fi. Each Tonie is beautifully hand painted, making them desirable and collectable for kids.

Pinky Laing, UK Partnerships at Tonies, said: ‘’Tonies is committed to helping children ignite their imagination through the power and magic of storytelling. We are delighted to have released our new Tonies for the month of September. The iconic Mr Bean and newer favourites Paw Patrol and Masha and the Bear are sure to keep little ones entertained for hours on end.”
