Children’s audio system tonies® launches new Tonie with the beloved Children’s TV series, Clangers

Children’s audio system, tonies®, has announced today the launch of its new ‘Clangers’ Tonie, that will be released for sale on the 11th August.

Narrated by Sir Michael Palin, , the brand-new Clangers Tonie figurine can be placed on top of the Toniebox audio system to transport little listeners instantly to the unique and imaginary world on the little blue planet – ‘that is somewhere out in space’.  The Clangers are unique, imaginary creatures; a loveable close-knit family with flappy feet and long pink noses.

As a great introduction to the CBeebies TV show for little ones, the new Tonie plays six magical adventures that take children on an exploration of the Clangers’ planet under the stars, where they will be joined by Small, Tiny, Mother, Major and Granny Clanger. Little ones will rejoice as they follow the Clangers into misadventure, with the family’s inquisitive nature bringing them face to face with other magical creatures in the audio stories.

Now, more than ever before, parents are searching for alternative ways to entertain, educate and inspire their children. The new ‘Clangers’ Tonie will spark children’s imagination with its immersive,  enchanting content, that is totally screen-free.

As well as encouraging independence, the magical stories told by the new ‘Clangers’ Tonie will inspire conversations and the development of emotional bonds with parents. In fostering this deeper connection, tonies® keeps little ones entertained in a way that is meaningful, enriching and, most importantly, fun!

Jeremy Banks, CEO of Coolabi Group said: ‘We are absolutely over the moon to be announcing this new partnership and the ‘Clangers’ Tonie release. The partnership celebrates all the fantastic music and sounds that make Clangers so magical and unique.’
