Tonies is kick-starting 2023 with new releases including Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom and Disney’s Lilo & Stitch.
Disney blockbuster Brave also makes its Tonies debut with the empowering story of Princess Merida, while the hugely successful Lilo & Stitch movie and TV Disney franchise is making its way to audio, along with popular pre-school TV show Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom.
Disney’s Brave joins the popular Tonies Disney collection, which now includes over 30 titles, making it one the most successful licensed ranges for the brand. Joining 1940s classic Bambi and modern-day Frozen 2, Brave reinvents the fairy tale princess rhetoric with the tale of Princess Merida. Headstrong but courageous, Princess Merida is a skilled archer on a quest to defy age-old traditions and carve out her own path in life, causing chaos in her kingdom. When a witch grants Merida a wish turning her mother, Queen Elinor, into a bear, she learns the true meaning of courage on a journey to reverse the spell before it’s too late.
Lilo and Stitch is another classic joining the Disney Tonies collection this month. Hawaiian orphan Lilo is an independent little girl and Stitch is a mischievous creature from outer space. When their worlds collide, it’s love (and chaos) at first sight.
Animated TV show Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom joins the pre-school Tonies range with magical story content for younger listeners. Little ones will be taken on an audio adventure, with elf Ben and fairy Holly and their friends and family, in the Little Kingdom and Great Elf Tree. Joining Ben and Holly for a Royal Fairy Picnic, children can listen as Holly rules the Little Kingdom while King and Queen Thistle are away, and discover what happens when the fairies wake up to find their wands are not working.
Content Tonies include both classic and contemporary tales and popular bedtime songs and educational content, bringing the magic of learning to life.
