The Toy Box is the new reality competition on ABC where toy inventors pitch their products with the hope of getting a deal with Mattel to bring the toy to market — and be sold exclusively at Toys R Us. It’s like ABC’s Shark Tank but the panel of judges is composed of four sassy kids who are not easily impressed. Plus there’s an affable host — Eric Stonestreet, Cam on Modern Family.
The Toy Box is now accepting new inventor applications from people in the US who want to pitch their inventions on the show. Here are some of the rules: You must be 18 or older; be a legal resident of the U.S.; and be available for shooting the show in May – June 2017. To apply, you need to create a profile on the MysticArt Pictures website and then complete the online application. Good luck! The Toy Box airs Fridays at 8pm, right before Shark Tank.
