Mindfulness has become an important skill for kids to learn and practice over the course of the pandemic. One of the best ways to help them tune in to their emotions is by tuning up their music.
GoNoodle and Tonies bring the best of both worlds together with the Mindfulness Starter Set Toniebox. This screen-free audio box encourages kids to relax, take a moment, and meditate to fun tales and tunes.
A Toniebox is a kid-friendly portable speaker that helps kids listen to music and stories on the go. These speakers come with Tonies, which are colorful figurines that are used to power the Toniebox. All kids have to do is put their Tonie on the Toniebox to play their music, and press the two ears atop the box to lower or increase the volume. They can also tilt the box to the left to rewind the stories, to the right to fast forward, and they can take the Tonie off to pause their music.
“At tonies, we are huge fans of GoNoodle, as we have a common mission to provide healthy entertainment options for children, families, and educators everywhere,” says Tonies USA President Christoph Frehsee. “We are delighted to be the screen-free extension of GoNoodle’s trademark ‘good energy.’ Practicing mindfulness is incredibly important, especially for kids today, and there is no better partner to help us bring the best meditation content to households and classrooms nationwide.”
The Mindfulness Starter Set Toniebox features over 30 minutes of GoNoodle’s signature mindfulness and movement songs, including “Rainbow Breath,” “Squatchy Nap Time Story,” and more. Kids can pair the GoNoodle Tonie (pictured above) with their matching blue Toniebox to embark on a calming meditative journey whenever they need it. GoNoodle’s interactive, mindful content is right at their fingertips.
“As screen-time has increased over the past year at home and within the classroom, parents and teachers across the country struggle with finding screen-free alternatives to keep kids entertained,” says KC Estenson, CEO of GoNoodle. “Our partnership with Tonies offers kids a fun, new way to GoNoodle — with different movement and mindfulness activities, classic songs they know and love, and new content from our beloved sasquatch-Champ, Squatchy.”
