‘The Toy Box’ Episode Guide (May 12): Candy Krusher; Connectimals; Bitblocks; Curly Girls United

“Episode 105” (05/12/17) – Passionate inventors with big dreams present toy concepts that include a candy press, an adorable curly-haired doll, and a simple game with an old-school feel, on an all-new episode of ABC’s “The Toy Box,” airing on FRIDAY, MAY 12 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network

This week’s toy inventions include:

– Candy Krusher – a candy press that molds sweet treats into fun shapes Inventor: Barry from Dallas, Texas
– Connectimals – lovable plush toys with interchangeable magnetic parts Inventor: Kurt and Hannah from Westfield, Wisconsin
– Bitblocks – a construction toy that utilizes only one type of block Inventor: Will from Portland, Oregon
– Curly Girls United – a unique doll that celebrate girls with curly hair Inventor: Margaret from Tinley Park, Illinois
– Quadball – a skill and action game with a nostalgic feel Inventor: Chris from Huntington Beach, California

In each episode of “The Toy Box,” inventors present their toy concepts to a group of mentors that include Dylan’s Candy Bar owner, Dylan Lauren, toy guru Jim Silver and Pixar creative director of Consumer Products, Jen Tan. If the toy maker gets past the mentors, they will move on to The Toy Box where a panel of young, no-holds-barred judges that include 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”) decide which toy moves on to the finals and eventually crowned the winner. That winning toy will be sold exclusively at Toys”R”Us(R) after the series finale.

“The Toy Box” is from Mattel, Hudsun Media and Electus. Michael Rourke, Chris Grant, Drew Buckley, Richard Dickson, Catherine Balsam-Schwaber, Julia Pistor, Susan House and Hamilton South are executive producers.

“The Toy Box” is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format with a 5.1 channel surround sound.
