Our kids have been spending a lot of time in front of screens. The very last thing I know I want to do is add yet another screen to my daughter’s lives. Usher in the Toniebox, a smart speaker made especially for kids. This widely popular digital device that offers kids an imagination-building, screen-free digital listening experience, has finally made its debut here in the United States just a few weeks ago. Kids will love being able to listen to their favorite stories, songs, and more on one of the best smart speakers available for kids.
I’ve welcomed the Toniebox into my home with open arms, and so did my 9-year-old. My 7-month old too, but, she enjoys mostly trying to eat the Tonies. The joys of having a teething baby. However, since the Toniebox uses audio storytelling for children who are not yet reading or are beginning to read, it’s still the perfect screen-free device to spark imagination in their growing minds.
What Makes Toniebox Special?
Toniebox isn’t your average smart speaker. This speaker comes to life with a whimsical collection of hand-painted characters calledTonies. There are regular Tonies, which are available in kids’ favorite Disney characters like Ariel, Woody, Mufasa, and more! Then there are Creative-Tonies that allow the entire family to join in on the fun that having a TonieBox offer. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends can record up to 90-minutes of audio – a song, a loving message, a story – for kids to enjoy. The possibilities are endless. It offers a great way for families to engage with each other and spread love during a time when families aren’t coming together as often.

The Toniebox is Magical Smart Speaker
My 9-year-old was in awe when Ariel began singing immediately after sitting her on the designated spot on the speaker. It was like magic! Thanks to magnets, each Tonie collectible character magnetically attaches to the Toniebox. This makes it so easy for kids to use and swap between their favorite Tonies to curate their own storytime experience.
