How to add content to your Creative Tonies

Whether you have just bought a Toniebox starter set, or have simply bought a new Creative Tonie the most important thing to know is how to add content!

There are two main ways to add content to your Creative Tonie – through the Toniecloud, and through the Tonie app. If you are using the Toniecloud to add tracks, it is important to know that these must be files on your computer or phone – you cannot sync music that you would normally just be able to stream.

Whichever way you use, your Toniebox will need to be connected to to Wifi.

Adding content via the Toniecloud

In order to set up your Toniebox, you will have had to register to the Toniecloud.

Log in to your Toniecloud account, and select your Creative Tonie. You have the option to rename your Tonie if you like, which is great if you are keeping different types of content on different Tonies. Or if they belong to different children! If you are renaming, make sure to save your changes or it won't update the Toniecloud.

Select Add/Edit content. If you are using a computer, you should be able to drag and drop your files. Otherwise, there is a button to click and select your files.

Organise content. It doesn't matter what order you add your files, you can easily reorder them by using the up and down arrows.

Live option. By selecting the “live option”, all new content gets played first. Otherwise, it goes to the bottom of the list.

Save your changes! After any changes made, whether renaming, reordering, adding new content or deleting content, always make sure to save your content. Otherwise the Toniecloud won't be updated.

Sync your Toniebox. Once your content has been successfully uploaded, you will get a message above the Edit Content button which says Your content is ready to play. Sync your Toniebox now. It is very important that you do this if you want your Creative Tonie to play your new content!
1. Remove any Tonies currently on the Toniebox
2. Press and hold one of the Toniebox ears for approximately 3 seconds, until the LED flashes blue.
3. When the new content is ready to be downloaded, you will hear an audio signal and the LED will be a solid green.
4. Put your Creative Tonie on the Toniebox so that the new content can download and be ready to play.

Adding content via the Tonies App

The Tonies App is the place to add your own personal recordings. This is a brilliant resource, because it means that you can record messages, sing songs, or even read bedtime stories. You can also get family members to record messages too, which can be added straight to your Creative Tonie.

Download and login. The Tonies App is available on both Apple and Android. Once it has downloaded, all you need to do is log in with your Toniecloud account.

Select your Creative Tonie. If you have purchased a new Creative Tonie, it needs to be added to your Toniecloud account first. Select the one you want to add content to.

Live option. If you want your recording to be the first to play, then activate Live Option. Otherwise you can always manually move the tracks.

Add content. When you select add content (look for the + symbol), you will be taken through to the next step. It will show you the name of your Tonie, a timer, and how much time is left on your Tonie.

Start your recording. When you are recording, make sure you are in an area with as little background noise as possible. This just makes your content clearer. Even better if you can find a room without an echo!

Listen back. You can listen back to your recording after. You then get the choice to either do it again or accept.

Accept your recording. If you accept, you will be asked to enter a name for your recording, and then to accept again. The next screen will show you your recording name, length, and how much time is remaining on your Creative Tonie.

Upload your recording. Once you have selected “upload”, you will find it appears on your Creative Tonie content list. For longer recordings, you might find a progress bar.

Sync your content. Always sync your content! Do the same as you would when uploading content via Toniecloud.
1. Remove any Tonies currently on the Toniebox
2. Press and hold one of the Toniebox ears for approximately 3 seconds, until the LED flashes blue.
3. When the new content is ready to be downloaded, you will hear an audio signal and the LED will be a solid green.
4. Put your Creative Tonie on the Toniebox so that the new content can download and be ready to play.

Important: Always save your changes, and always sync your Toniebox! Otherwise new content won't be available to play.
