Inventor: Will Petillo
Bitblocks is “a construction toy that utilizes only one type of block,” according to ABC.
The mentors think it’s a good idea but Jim Silver points out that there are some major players in the construction toy market. They also don’t find the suggested designs all that interesting. They do, however, like the gaming options. They all agree that it’s different but think it needs more work. Bitblocks does not make it to the Toy Box.
I'M FORCING MATTEL TO SEND BITBLOCKS TO #thetoybox
It needed to made it.
I'm pissed off!

Bitblocks would've been cool back in 1984. #TheToyBox

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.
