The Toy Box: The Walking Dinosaur Fails to Make It to Round 2
By Erica Abbott
Toy: The Walking Dinosaur
The Walking Dinosaur is “a dinosaur that you can walk like a dog,” according to ABC.
The mentors are impressed with the design and Jim Silver calls it “cute.” He worries, however, that it would not be able to be mass-produced. The toy would come in pieces to be built later. Jen Tan and Dylan Lauren do not pass it to the Toy Box for believing it’s not a finished product. Silver doubts it could be made for a reasonable price and passes on it as well.
Hosted by “Modern Family” star Eric Stonestreet, “The Toy Box” helps inventors make their toy creation dreams become a reality. According to their website, the inventions are brought before mentors, including Dylan’s Candy Bar owner Dylan Lauren, toy guru Jim Silver and Pixar creative director of Consumer Products, Jen Tan. If they pass phase one, they then have the opportunity to face the ultimate toy-loving panel of judges: kids. The panel features Sophia Grace Brownlee, Aalyrah Caldwell, Toby Grey and Noah Ritter. The kids determine which toys make it to the finals and, ultimately, the one winning toy that will sold at Toys“R”Us.
A new episode airs each Friday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
