‘The Toy Box’ Episode Guide (May 5): Wiggies; Jumpstix; Maze-O; Plaliens; Dueling Wizards

“Episode 104” (05/05/17) – Amateur toy inventors get the opportunity of a lifetime to present their innovative concepts, such as a maze-building toy, a dueling wizard game, playful plush aliens and more, on an all-new episode of ABC’s “The Toy Box,” airing on FRIDAY, MAY 5 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network

This week’s toy inventions include:

– Wiggies – dolls with interchangeable hair Inventor: Kim from Los Angeles, California
– Jumpstix – a scooter with a built-in pogo stick Inventor: Peter from Camarillo, California
– Maze-O – a maze-building toy Inventor: Jessica and Daniel from Lino Lakes, Minnesota
– Dueling Wizards – aspiring wizards use wands to toss spells at each other Inventor: Joe from Dearborn, Michigan
– Plaliens – playful plush aliens that inspire curiosity Inventor: Melanie and Beth from Bakersfield, 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 is 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.
