The Toy Box 

"The Toy Box" review by Eva Diaz  4/10/17
Airs Fridays 8/7 on ABC

I watched the commercials for this show, and it looked like something I wanted to watch. It's a very fun show; a bit like Shark Tank, but with a few differences. Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family) is the host. Four toy inventors go before a panel of toy experts and demonstrate their toys. If two of the three toy experts like the toy, they go before the Toy Box, which is a panel of four kids, and demonstrate the toy again. At the end of the show, the kids pick a winning toy idea, and the inventor of the toy moves on to the final round, presenting their idea before Mattel. The winner from those competitors gets their toy manufactured and sold at Toys R Us.

I liked this show a lot, but I would make one change: I would get rid of the grown up panel of experts and just have the inventors go before the kids panel because the kids, to me, seem to ask better questions and have better insight than the grown-up panel of experts do. Eric Stonestreet does a wonderful job as host and is great at keeping the kid panel focused on their task. I give this show a 4 out of 5 stars. It could be a little better, but it is a fun, family-friendly show.
