Hoppie Rabbit likes to be ahead of the game when it comes to ideas. She quickly finds her bearings and discovers the most amazing things. She is quite clever, for example when Fritzy Fuchs doesn't want to share his tree house at all. You can listen to how she manages to get everyone to play there afterwards.

tonies® Soft Cuddly Friends Jimmy Teddy bear EN audio play

Jimmy Bear is faithful, loyal and very affectionate towards his friends. He initially appears rather cheeky or even "the bear with the big mouth", but in reality, he has a very soft core and is always the first to leap into the adventure when his friends need rescuing. He also shows his qualities when it comes to settling the "banana dispute" and making new friends...

This is how it works

tonies® is the innovative award-winning audio system for children aged from 3 to 10 years old. Three of our new Steiff cuddly animals from our Soft Cuddly Friends series are equipped with an audio play chip sewn in, making them ready to connect to the Toniebox. Just place the soft cuddly friend on the Toniebox, then off it goes with an exciting audio play!
Each of the three Soft Cuddly Friends has its own audio play with six stories from the land of soft cuddly friends. (Running time: about 70 minutes)
The cuddly animals are 20 cm in size and attach to the Toniebox by a magnet integrated in the audio play chip. A patch with the red tonies® logo shows that it is a Soft Cuddly Friend with an audio play.
