On the April 21 episode of The Toy Box, Rachel and Steve McMurtrey of Pleasant Grove, Utah pitch their life-size construction set TubeLox. The STEM toy encourages children to design and build structures including usable furniture and cars. TubeLox is well received on the show by judge Noah, 7, who loves the idea of driving his own TubeLox car to school every day.
If the McMurtreys look familiar to you, there’s good reason. In 2014, they pitched their kids play structure Jungle JumpaRoo on Shark Tank. While they didn’t get a deal on the show, they continue to sell their 3-in-1 bouncy toy (climb, swing, jump) on Amazon (see below). It can be used indoors and outdoors and can hold up to 8 kids at a time. The Toy Box airs Fridays at 8pm on ABC, right before Shark Tank.
