This September, kids can connect with their Sesame Street friends in a brand new way. Elmo and Cookie Monster are heading to the world of Tonies.

For those unfamiliar, the Toniebox is a soft, portable speaker cube that kids place a Tonie figure onto to bring to life. These collectibles feature audible action that helps kids learn screen-free through music and stories. The brand-new Sesame Street Tonies will bring fresh, enjoyable content.

The Elmo Tonie is all about music as he teaches kids about different instruments, how to stretch their imaginations, and how to use music to exercise and wind down. The Cookie Monster Tonie is putting his cookie-crazed past behind him and teaching kids all about healthy habits, including eating, cooking, exercise, and mindfulness.

The Cookie Monster and Elmo Tonies will launch on Sept. 23 for $14.99 each at, Target, Barnes & Noble, and more. In person, families can find it at independent toy stores, FAO Schwarz, and New York CAMP locations.
