A new partnership with the online educational resource platform, Twinkl, will enable children to access an assortment of free audio content via their Creative-Tonies.
The Twinkl-tonies collaboration will see the launch of inspirational and educational content for children of all ages. The partnership will begin with summer stories for the school holidays.
Listening to audio inspires a love of storytelling from an early age and exposes children to a wider vocabulary, which in turn plays a huge role in improving early language and literacy development. The new partnership will harness the power of audio to nurture curiosities and a passion for discovery and exploration.
Supplementary resources to complement the content will be available for download at Twinkl.co.uk, including quizzes, colouring pages and fact sheets.
Users can download the content straight to their Creative-Tonie from the mytonies library, with future releases planned in time for back to school and the autumn months.
Pinky Laing, partnership and PR manager, commented: “We are committed to bringing wonderful stories and music to Tonies listeners, as well as inspiring educational content, all via the power of audio.
“We are so excited to be partnering with Twinkl, the most trusted educational online resource in the UK, to bring to life engaging, inspiring and educational stories for our little listeners. The collaboration presents the perfect synergy, with Twinkl sharing our passion to make learning as fun and as interesting as possible. Watch this space for a host of fantastic free audio content and downloadable resources this year.”
Hannah McNaughton, product owner for Twinkl Original, added: “We are always looking for wonderful ways to make Twinkl Originals story books accessible to every child, and are incredibly excited to be sharing them with young learner via Tonies. Together, we can help to foster a lifelong love of reading in more children than ever.”
