Story Time with Boat Rocker
Boat Rocker has teamed up with global toy manufacturer Tonies to release two of its top shows – Love Monster and Dino Ranch – onto Tonie’s bestselling interactive audio platform as branded Tonies.
Based on the popular preschool books by award-winning British author and illustrator Rachel Bright and inspired by the hit CBeebies series, the Love Monster Tonie includes five warm and witty tales which enable little listeners to join Love Monster as he learns to navigate life, friendship and emotions as the only monster in town. Through relatable life-lessons the Love Monster Tonie will help children to learn to communicate and understand their feelings.
Meanwhile the dinos and their rancheroos from Boat Rocker’s pre-school action-adventure series Dino Ranch will also be galloping onto their own Tonie in October. Velociraptor Blitz is fast, fun and ready to entertain and he’s looking forward to welcoming some more little rancheroos with a selection of four dino tales. All fans have to do is pop Blitz on top of a Toniebox and take a trip down to the Cassidy family’s dino sanctuary farm to meet Jon, Min, Miguel and the rest of their dino buddies, including Clover and Tango.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Tonies on their innovative and hugely popular storytelling products to bring our beloved characters to life in a new way,” said Emmanuelle Cadet, Brand and Licensing Director, Boat Rocker. “Love Monster and Dino Ranch Tonies are sure to become firm favourites of children and adults alike.”
“We’re so excited to welcome the inspiring Love Monster and Dino Ranch stories to our Tonies portfolio. It’s been such a pleasure working with Boat Rocker to transform these animated series into audio tales that will delight little ears again and again.” said Rhian Hawkins, Head of Brand, UK for Tonies.
Suitable for 3+, the Love Monster Tonie will be available on tonies.com and specialty retailers from September 25th and the Dino Ranch Tonie from October 24th.
