Children’s audio system tonies launches three Mr. Men Little Miss Tonies this April, adding to its ever-growing portfolio of stories for children to enjoy on their Tonieboxes.

The series of children’s books, which were created, written and illustrated by Roger Hargreaves, has been delighting children and adults alike since 1971, and now three of the most endearing characters are set to come to life as Tonie figurines to enchant a new generation of fans. 

Little ones will love discovering the characters, enjoying their funny antics and misadventures along the way. The line-up includes the first ever Mr. Men character Mr. Tickle, joined by Mr. Strong and Little Miss Sunshine, each poised to transport little listeners all the way to Happyland for three very different adventures.

Mr. Tickle

Running time: approximately 35 minutes, suitable for children aged three-plus.

It all started with a tickle! Mr. Tickle is small and round and has arms that stretch and stretch. If you are in any way ticklish, beware his extraordinarily long arms, and join him on his mischievous escapades in this collection of laugh aloud stories.

Mr. Strong

Running time: approximately 38 minutes, suitable for children aged three-plus.

Mr. Strong is the strongest person in the whole wide world. Come along on this adventure of laughter and thrills as you discover the secret to Mr. Strong’s strength.

Little Miss Sunshine

Running time: approximately 38 minutes, suitable for children aged three-plus.

Little Miss Sunshine is busy looking on the bright side of life. Her favourite pastime is smiling – no-one could be happier! Join her on her visit to Miseryland where smiling and laughing is forbidden.

Tonies said: ‘Now, more than ever before, parents are searching for screen-free ways to entertain, educate and inspire their children. The interactive Toniebox and its new Mr. Men Little Miss series will spark imaginations and instil a love for storytelling and books in even the youngest of listeners.’

Tonies head of portfolio UK & IR Liz Peters said:“We are so excited to welcome Mr. Men Little Miss to our Tonies portfolio and Mr. Strong, Mr. Tickle and Little Miss Sunshine are three of our highlights for Spring 2022. We’ve worked with some top voiceover talent to record these audio productions, including Kathryn Drysdale, of [TV period drama series] Bridgerton fame.”

Silvia Fagin, chief operating officer Sanrio – EMEA, India and Oceania, and Mr. Men –Worldwide, added: â€œWe are happy to partner with Tonies to see Mr. Men Little Miss stories transposed into a new educational, fun and innovative format. We are confident that the timeless iconicity of Roger Hargreaves’ stories, combined with this immediate and accessible technology, will thrill children and parents alike.”
