This special look at #TheToyBox is presented in collaboration with ABC and The Rock Father™.

Last week, ABC‘s newest unscripted series, THE TOY BOX, made it’s debut, and I gave you the inside scoop (read it here). It’s week two for the 8-week first season, and Friday night will see another round of hopeful toy inventors make their way in front of the mentors with hopes of making it into The Toy Box, and ultimately to the final round in which one lucky winner will see their toy produced by Mattel, and sold exclusively at Toys “R” Us. Since many of you loved The Toy Box in its premiere, ABC and The Rock Father™ are giving you a sneak-peek at this week’s episode in this shared exclusive clip that’s premiering on select site as part of the recent #ABCTVEvent and #Cars3Event. See the “Piñata Backpack Chase” and get the details on this weeks toys below!

THE TOY BOX – Week Two: The mentors and judges are faced with some tough decisions when they are presented with unique toy inventions that include a whimsical dual-sided book, a ballerina doll, pocket-sized cars, sweet-smelling fruit plushes and a piñata in a backpack, on an all-new episode of ABC’s THE TOY BOX, airing on FRIDAY, APRIL 14 (8:00–9:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network. Sorta like Shark Tank with kids, Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet hosts the 8-episode series, while Sophia Grace Brownlee (“The Ellen Degeneres Show”), Aalyrah Caldwell (“Uncle Buck”), Toby Grey (“The Unexpected John Cena Prank”) and Noah Ritter (“The Ellen Degeneres Show”) serve as judges.

This week’s toy inventions include:

  • Butterfly Book – a unique double-sided book that makes story time even more fun. Inventor: Michelle from Naples, Florida
  • Ballerina Doll – a collection of dolls that articulate into ballet positions. Inventor: Tiffany and Mark from Murrieta, California
  • Snap N’ Roll – pocket-sized cars that launch with a snap. Inventor: Greg from Land O Lakes, Florida
  • Lil Fruityz – fruit-scented plush with their own personalities. Inventor: Jason from Hackettstown, New Jersey
  • Piñata Backpack – a twist on the party piñata in the form of a backpack. Inventor: Rebecca and Nicholas from Grass Valley, California
