Toy: Bedtime Storybug

Inventor: Lori

Bedtime Storybug is “a plush ladybug with the ability to record messages for kids,” according to ABC.

The mentors worry about how the plush may change given future technological advancements. Jen Tan likes the ladybug but thinks the design needs a bit more personality. Dylan Lauren believes it belongs in the Toy Box, as does Tan, despite thinking there’s something a bit generic about it.

In the Toy Box, the kid judges find the plush very cute and Sophia Grace Brownlee calls it a “great invention.” Aalyrah Caldwell thinks it’s “lovable” and even magical. Ultimately, Bedtime Storybug does not make it to the finals.

Hosted by “Modern Family” star Eric Stonestreet, “The Toy Box” helps inventors make their toy creation dreams become a reality. According to their website, the inventions are brought before mentors, including Dylan’s Candy Bar owner Dylan Lauren, toy guru Jim Silver and Pixar creative director of Consumer Products, Jen Tan. If they pass phase one, they then have the opportunity to face the ultimate toy-loving panel of judges: kids. The panel features Sophia Grace Brownlee, Aalyrah Caldwell, Toby Grey and Noah Ritter. The kids determine which toys make it to the finals and, ultimately, the one winning toy that will sold at Toys“R”Us.

A new episode airs each Friday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
