Ariana, president of Play for Toys “R” Us, makes a surprise visit to the kid judges on an all-new episode of ABC’s “The Toy Box,” airing SUNDAY, NOV. 12 (7:00-8:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network.

In each episode, passionate inventors who have poured their hearts and souls into their product present their toy concepts to a panel of the toughest judges in the industry – kids!
