What Are Tonie Figures and Are They Valuable?

Let’s talk about the musical phenomenon that is Tonie Figures. In this blog, we are going to discover what Tonie Figures are and whether they still hold any value. So, make yourself a cup of tea and sit back while we dive in.

Where Did Tonies® Come From?

Back in 2014, Patric Faßbender got talking to Marcus Stahl, an engineer, about their children’s listening habits. They quickly realised that even in a time of smartphones and tablets children still had to fiddle around with discs and audio players to safely listen to what they wanted. So, they decided to take matters into their own hands and invent a way for children to be able to enjoy their favourite music and audiobooks safely without all the fuss.

Since its conception, Tonies® has grown to become an international phenomenon, initially selling in France and going to stock shelves in Great Britain, Ireland, and the USA.

What is a Toniebox?

A Toniebox is a simple audio-playing device that is designed to introduce young children to the wonders that stories can bring. The Toniebox is designed to help children develop their reading skills by offering a fun way to experience new narratives. There are no screens and no buttons making it super easy to use and very durable.

What are Tonie Figures?

Each Tonies is not only a fun toy, but it also contains a collection of music and stories to play through the Toniebox. Designed to be placed on top of the Toniebox, Tonie Figures are fun and durable toys that can be listened to over and over again.

How Do Tonie Figures Work?

Tonies were designed to be simple to use, the lack of buttons means that all you need to do is place the Tonie on top of the box and the audio will begin playing, it really is a beautifully simple system, perfect for children. The Toniebox even has a battery so your children can enjoy their stories wherever they go.

How Much are Tonie Figures Worth?

Tonies are designed for younger minds just starting to develop their reading skills, so it’s likely that your children will quickly grow out of their Tonie figures, which means you could wind up with a whole pile of them and no idea what to do with them. Don't worry, we've got you covered, you might be surprised to hear that your kids old Tonies might still be worth more than you think.

The selection of Tonie Figures that are available brand new is always changing, which means the ones that are taken off the shelves become a little harder to find so may still hold their value if there are people out there who want them. So, next time you find yourself with a box full of old Tonie Figures, check out the WeBuyBooks catalogue and see how much you could sell them for, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
