    • The Toniebox is designed as an audiobook player for kids (age three and up), and packs the following features:

    • Motion control, via slapping the side or tilting the box

    • Small figurines (Tonies) with built in NFC chip

    • Soft shockproof shell

    • Internal storage for up to 400 hours of audio data

    • 7 hours battery capacity

    • Magnets in the top of the Toniebox, and in the sockets of the Tonies, to keep them stuck together while you tilt and turn the box

    • There was no NFC chip in our Kinder-Egg today—so sad.

    Small figurines (Tonies) with built in NFC chips as storage medium

    Not really. The storage is the Micro SD. The NFC is only giving some kind of authorization I guess to download the file.

  2. Because we're doing this teardown in Germany, we'll forgo the usual metric and imperial measuring shenanigans and simply give you a banana for scale. Each side of this cube measures 3/4 of a banana. (4.7 inches or 12 cm according to the manufacturer, who evidently did not have a banana handy.) Placing the banana onto the NFC sensor also doesn't play anything.

  3. The cover on the bottom is as stubborn as a pickle jar. But hey, we have seen far worse opening procedures! Besides, the rest looks pretty easy. A single Phillips screw holds the innards in the foam housing. Just the way we like it.

    How on earth do you open the bottom?! Tried turning, nothing.

    StuFF mc - Antwoord

    It is a snapfit connection. Try pushing against the bottom with your palm while turning counterclockwise.

    Tobias Isakeit -

    It’s very hardto open it. There are 2 small slots for the snappers.

    2 possible ways to get access to these:

    1.a) You can try to remove the sticker (with the toniebox logo) at the bottom

    OR

    1b) Make two little holes with a screwdriver in the sticker . Imagine the radius from the (charging port) to the “B” of the word “Boxine” “Designed by <B>oxine in [..]“ Make a hole under the “B”and one mirrored at the center along the radius.

    2.)After that you can use a small screwdriver to push the snappers back and turn the bottom part counterclockwise.

    • Surrounding it is this black cage, which is also easy to take out and seems to serve mainly for crush protection.

    • The squeezable foam bumper comes out last. According to the manufacturer, it's made from sustainable fabrics.

  5. The battery pack and motherboard are secured with just two standard Phillips screws. As printed on the back, the battery pack consists of three AA batteries with a charge capacity of 2,000 mAh. The manufacturer states this is a nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery pack—chosen because it's a safer technology than lithium-ion, and has almost no memory effect.

    • A TRF7962A RFID Reader to read the NFC chips from the Tonies

    • NXP MMA8451 accelerometer for fast forward and rewind functions.

    • And a Sandisk Edge 8 GB MicroSD card formatted as Fat32

    Ist die Speicherkarte durch eine größere Tauschbar zB. 16GB Fat32?

    Hat das schon mal jemand getestet??

    Kann man das Motherboard irgendwo erwerben? Ich habe einen Wackelkontakt, vermutlich am Netzstecker.. Mit einem anderen Akku lief die Box wieder nur kann ich den ja nicht jedes Mal tauschen, geschweige denn aufladen.

    Sebastian Pötschke - Antwoord

    Wenn es mit einem anderen Akku lief, ist dann vlt der alte Akku durch? Dafür gibt es Ersatz. Wo man ein neues Motherboard herbekommt, weiß ich leider nicht. Die Lötstellen vom Akkuanschluss auf dem Motherboard zu kontrollieren kann auch nicht schaden. Die kann man evtl auch selber noch mal selber wieder korrekt anlöten.

    Gerade die Speicherkarte durch eine 64 GB Karte ersetzt. Keine Probleme, bisher musste nur das WLAN der TonieBox neu einrichten.

  7. And now for the Toniebox's vocal chords cords! Speaker specs: 4 Ω and 3 W. 'Nuff said. We weren't exactly expecting high fidelity audiophile hardware, after all.
    • And now for the Toniebox's vocal chords cords!

    • Speaker specs: 4 Ω and 3 W. 'Nuff said. We weren't exactly expecting high fidelity audiophile hardware, after all.

    • The manufacturer's homepage gives a bit more info, including the nominal load- and music-carrying capacities (3 W / 5 W) and that the speaker spans the audio spectrum from 20 Hz to 10 kHz.

    Moin,

    meinen sie es ist möglich den Lautsprecher durch einen Neuen zu ersetzen, der eine bessere Klangqualität hat?

    Vlt einen Tipp parat, bzw welche Größe/Maße hat der LS?

  8. Just four more Phillips screws, and we can remove the cap. Inside the cap we find a second PCB, this one responsible for the NFC connection. Except for another socket to connect with the motherboard and another crossed out trashcan (WEEE-Symbol), there's nothing to see here.

    • No microphone found on the top PCB nor the motherboard. This means the Toniebox is acoustically unaware of its surroundings.

    The antenna has a plug for 6 PINS, were several do have a connection. Visible on the antenna I see only one circuit.Why did the use 6 PINS? Are there some loops on a different PCB layer?

  9. Next we inspect the volume control buttons, located (rather appropriately) in the ears of the Toniebox. Removing the outer layer of the ears, we find two small buttons. Because the buttons connect to the motherboard via a JST plug, we don't need to cut a wire. Lucky us.

    • That's all, folks! We completely tore down our Toniebox, cut open the lion, and spread everything over the table. Here is our result:

    • All the screws are standard Phillips screws and no adhesive was used.

    • The box is easy to disassemble and reassemble, without damaging it or leaving any marks.

    • Battery pack and flash memory are also pretty common and easy to change.

    • The cap on the bottom is held in place by plastic clips, which could break if you open the box repeatedly.

    • Some of the plugs sit in their sockets pretty tight and might be hard to unplug without damaging the sockets.

    • The headphone jack is soldered to the motherboard.

  12. Remove the ears from the Toniebox according to the basic instructions for the Toniebox Teardown. Be especially careful not to damage the connector on the PCB. Gently pull the inner ears down and out. Do not pull on the cable! Use a pair of tweezers to carefully pull the defective button and PCB out of the silicone ear. If the cable is not torn off, be careful not to damage it.

Bei unserer Box ist der Schalter samt Platine weg. Kann man das Kabel auch direkt am Schalter anlöten oder hat die Platine eine Funktion?

Kevin Flaig - Antwoord

Hi,

die Platine hat keine elektrische Funktion. Sie dient nur mechanisch dazu den Taster zu stützen. Wenn du es schaffst den direkt anzulöten geht das auch, ich weiss allerdings nicht wie gut das Veralten beim drücken ist oder ob das wider kaputt geht. Hier habe Ich neue Platinen gesehen die man allerdings selbst noch etwas bearbeiten muss:
