New! Tonies at Turtle Town!

Turtle Town is excited to announce we now carry Tonies! Tonies are audio boxes and characters that play music and stories targeted for children from infants to nine year olds (although the manufacturer claims a choking hazard for under 3).  Think of the audio box as a record player and the Tony, or character, as the record.  But that’s where the resemblance ends.


The audio box is a wonderful, simple-to-use box that looks a bit like a cat.  The Tonies are characters from children’s programming, such as Toy Story, Spider Man, Frozen, Peppa Pig, Curious George, Mickey Mouse and on and on.  Each Tony plays different songs and stories somewhat related to the character.  To play, simply put the character on the Tony box.  To turn it off, simply remove.  Increase the volume? Wiggle the cat’s ear.  It is so simple, even a grandparent can play it easily.  Small children of course learn how to use it instantaneously and will immediately show you what you’re doing wrong.


Tonies also come as Create Your Own.  Grandma can record herself reading a favorite bedtime story for the child to play each night, or music that is special for the two of them.  Tonies also come totally devoted to lullabies, and there’s even one featuring classical music.  Bedtime with a Tony can be less of a struggle for tired moms and dads.


Although the audio box is a bit of an investment, children in a family can share the box but each have their own Tonies.  And here’s the best news of all—children LOVE Tonies!  Imagine getting a Tony box for a newborn and collecting Tonies throughout their childhood years.  What a great investment in their learning stories and songs.  Buy a book to go with a Tony and the child can follow along! Put affordable Tony characters on your Christmas list for gifts they are sure to love.


Intrigued? Come to Turtle Town and let us show you the magic of Tonies. How many toys can bring your child years of happiness and wonderful memories?
