This article will take an actual view into the Children’s Audio Player market by giving a quick view onto the Toniebox by Boxine, the TigerBox Touch by TigerMedia, the Kekz Headset by Kekz-Media and the Technifant by TechniSat.
Boxine reinvented the Childrens Audio Player Market by establishing an alternative control for kids besides of handling old cassettes or CDs in September 2016. Since then several other players tried to jump onto the train and came up with either their own development to improve the kids access to audio content or just came up with a more or less copied process where the music is not controlled by a figurine but with a card or a chip / round token.
TechniSat, well known for several electronics like Radios, TVs or satellite dishes, just started to sell their own interpretation of a kids audio player. The TECHNIFANT.
During the last days Boxine did an OTA updated of the Toniebox Firmware. That means that all Boxes that went online over Wifi received this update already.
In earlier times Boxine informed their customers with an information web page at their http://www.tonies.de site. But they did not update this page for quite a while.
With the US release of the Toniebox, Boxine is releasing two new content Tonies that are not available within Germany or the UK yet.
With the US start Boxine is introducing different skin colors for the creative Tonies.
With the US start of the Toniebox in these days, Boxine is selling a new special edition.
A step by Step Guide to implement your own custom RFID tags.
In this Blog post the focus is on custom tags that works with the Toniebox. I will guide you through the steps of using own RFID tags with Content that is already on your build in SD card of the Toniebox.
Like I described in earlier posts, within the Tonie figurines is a RFID Chip installed. This Chip consists of a total of 40 bytes length. 8 bytes are used for the UID, a unique identifier, and 32 bytes are used within the tag memory (4 blocks with 8 bytes each). The UID, like it is said by the U for unique is a identification number that only exists once within the whole Tonie universe (or only once within the RFID Standard according to NXP).
UPDATE —- Now Available at Lufthansa World Shop —- UPDATE
Today I received the information about a new Lufthansa themed Creative-Tonie that is not released yet.
Team RevvoX, in person [Bee], [g3gg0], [Gambrius] and [Moritz] wish you and your families especially in these days very Happy Easter. Hopefully we could spread a bit of pre easter joy with our presents in form of Teddy and all the other information around tinkering with the Toniebox. Hoping that we could help to let the time during quarantine fly by a bit faster.
