What is a purple person?

Great question. I mean, really great! Purple people always ask really great questions. They bring their family, friends, and communities together, and they speak up for what’s right. A purple person is an everyday superhero!

You can be purple, too!

How it Works

The Toniebox is an imagination-building, screen-free digital listening experience that plays stories, songs AND lessons. The Toniebox comes to life when paired with our whimsical collection of Tonies
