There are a few special Tonies that include pre-loaded content on them, but they can also function as Creative-Tonies! Currently, these special Tonies include the LeVar Burton Tonie, the GoNoodle x tonies® Mindfulness Tonie, the Calm Tonie, the Steiff Hoppie Rabbit and Jimmy Bear Tonies, and the limited edition Purple People Tonie (no longer available).
It's important to note that uploading custom content to your special Creative-Tonie will remove the pre-loaded content. However, not to worry, you can always re-add the pre-loaded content back onto your special Creative-Tonie at any time. For steps walking through this specific process, check out our other support article here: How do I add the pre-loaded content back onto my special Creative-Tonie?
Here's how to add new content onto your special Creative-Tonie:
Using the mytonies app
Open the mytonies app and swipe through your Tonies until you see the special Creative-Tonie you want to add content to. Then, tap on the picture of that special Creative-Tonie.
Here, you can choose if you want to record new content directly onto the special Creative-Tonie by tapping the microphone button or upload already saved content by tapping the tonie/arrow icon.
If you choose to record new content directly, tapping the microphone button will bring up the recording page. To begin recording, tap the red circle.
- Once you are finished recording, tap the red stop button at the bottom of the screen.
Once the recording is stopped, you will have a chance to listen to the recording, delete and record again, or save and assign. If you would like to add the recording to the special Creative-Tonie, tap 'Save and assign'.
The new recording will upload for a few seconds. Once this process is complete, tap 'Done' in the upper right-hand side of the screen.
- Once the new content is uploaded to the special Creative-Tonie, you will just need to sync the Toniebox in order to download the new content. To do this, simply turn on the Toniebox and pinch one of the Tonieboxes ears for about three seconds until you hear a sound. The LED will begin flashing blue while your Toniebox updates with the new content. You can then place the special Creative-Tonie onto the Toniebox when the light turns solid green. The new content will then be played and downloaded simultaneously.
