Toynamics UK & Ireland to distribute Timio learning device

Published on: 28th July 2021

The company will also distribute the educational audio and music player’s recently launched headphones for the Dutch brand.

Toynamics UK & Ireland has announced it is has become the exclusive distributor of the Timio educational audio and music player and the new to market Timio foldable kids’ headphones.

The innovative and interactive learning device for children aged 2-6 years plus is designed to stimulate creativity and fun and help develop early childhood cognitive skills. It requires no wifi as it is screen-free, making it portable and ideal for travel, and uses magnetic discs to unlock a library of curated educational and engaging audio content on various subjects for multiple ages. Children simply select a disc, place it on top of Timio and follow the audio instructions.

The Timio player comes with five discs, giving seven hours of educational content and entertainment in a choice of eight languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Dutch, Chinese, Italian and Portuguese), so children can learn while playing.  Disc categories include the alphabet, fairy tales, nursery rhymes, numbers, lullabies, fruit, animals, colours and vocabulary.

Timio uses only sound and LED lights, so there are no moving images, encouraging children to learn to listen attentively. Interactive features include quiz questions and a pause function, so children can pause a story or a song.

An additional four sets of five discs are available to retailers to sell separately – a total of 25 audio discs.

David Allan, MD at Toynamics UK & Ireland, said: “Already established as a leading children’s edutainment brand in the Netherlands, we are delighted to exclusively extend this success across Europe through the Toynamics Distribution Network. Here in the UK and Ireland, Timio is a great sales opportunity for the educational and on-the-go toy market, and we are looking forward to the growth potential at retail.”

The recently launched Timio headphones are comfortable, adjustable and lightweight. They plug into the jack on the Timio player and work without batteries or Bluetooth. They are packed with safety features, including a built-in volume limiter that prevents the volume going above 85dB to protect kids’ hearing, and can also be used with other audio devices.
