Tonies details latest properties to join audio line-up

Published on: 9th August 2021

Clangers, How to Train Your Dragon, Trolls and Super Wings are the latest popular kids’ licences to join the Tonies portfolio. 

Tonies has announced the launch of its latest Tonie figures. Leading the way will be the new Clangers Tonie, which will be released for sale on the 11th August, the month that also sees the launch of How to Train Your Dragon, Trolls and Super Wings Tonies.

Narrated by Sir Michael Palin, the new Clangers Tonie figurine can be placed on top of the Toniebox audio system to transport kids to a unique and imaginary world on the little blue planet ‘somewhere out in space’. A great introduction to the iconic CBeebies TV show, the new Tonie plays six adventures that will take children on an exploration of the Clangers’ planet, joined by Small, Tiny, Mother, Major and Granny Clanger.

Jeremy Banks, CEO of Coolabi Group, said: “We are absolutely over the moon to be announcing this new partnership and the Clangers Tonie release. The partnership celebrates all the fantastic music and sounds that make Clangers so magical and unique.”

Pinky Laing, UK Partnerships at Tonies, commented: “Tonies is committed to helping children through the power and magic of storytelling. By telling the nostalgic, loveable and iconic tales of the pink, knitted creatures that live together on a little blue planet, we hope that the new Tonie will develop bonds amongst parents and their little ones. Fostering a love of narrative and adventure, the launch of our new Tonie continues our commitment to engage the next generation by introducing them to beloved classic stories, such as The Clangers.”

In addition to the new Clangers Tonie that will be available on 11th August, Tonies is also releasing more Tonies this month.

The new additions include:

  • How to Train your Dragon: Kids can join the adventures of young dragon trainer Hiccup and his loyal dragon companion Toothless on the island of Berk, the world’s first dragon-Viking utopia.
  • Trolls: Follow the upbeat and hair-raising adventures of Poppy, Branch and the rest of the residents of Troll Village as they keep the party going in their forest.
  • Super Wings: Happy-go-lucky jet plane Jett is on a quest to deliver packages to children around the world accompanied by Super Wings, a heroic group of airplanes that transform into robots.

Creative-Tonies play recorded or pre-downloaded content which can be upload via the Toniecloud or the free Tonie-App. Perfect for when kids want to listen to something a little bit more personal. Tonies releases free content for downloading every month.
