Your staycation essential

Once charged, the Toniebox is completely mobile for seven hours, making it the perfect travel companion for kids on the go. What’s more, just in time for the holidays, Tonies has brought Enid Blyton’s classic stories back to life with their new release Famous Five Tonie.

Famous Five Tonie

The Famous Five are set to win the hearts of yet another generation. The new Timmy the Dog Tonie is a wonderful introduction to the 1940s adventure novels. Escapades involving smugglers, criminals, secret passages and lost treasure will excite and mesmerise young listeners. 

The Famous Five Tonie tells the stories of long summer days spent in the English and Welsh countryside and around the seashores. When the Five (George, Dick, Julian, Anne and Timmy the dog) set off on their bikes with a picnic lunch in their baskets, you know adventure is sure to follow!
