Tonies adds two new Disney licences to its range

Published on: 14th October 2019

Cars and The Little Mermaid join Tonies’ existing range of Disney licences this November. 

Kids audio system Tonies has announce the addition of two new Disney characters to its range. The new Cars and The Little Mermaid Tonies will be available to purchase from 7th November.

Tonies allow kids to interact with famous characters and listen to their favourite stories and songs without screens or complicated controls. Simply place the Tonie figure on top of the Toniebox, and the content starts to play.

The Disney range, which launched with Baloo from The Jungle Book and Simba from The Lion King in August 2019, marks a huge step-change for the brand, and the Toniebox has been named as one of John Lewis’ top 10 toys to buy this Christmas.

The portfolio, which already combines a wide range of stories, music and knowledge, is constantly being extended with the number of Tonies available in the UK and Ireland set to grow from 45 to 65 by the end of this year.

Cars and The Little Mermaid Tonies will be available for sale from 7th November from selected toy retailers and bookshops, and via the Tonies website.
