Toy: Butterfly Book
Inventor: Michelle Gorman
The Butterfly Book is “a unique double-sided book that makes story time even more fun” with rotating pages, according to Broadway World.
The mentors find the product confusing, believing that it’s not really a toy. Jen Tan thinks the idea is cool and Jim Silver only sees a concept. Dylan Lauren likes it as a learning tool, but nothing more than that. She declines to pass it to the Toy Box, as does Tan. She doesn’t believe it’s been thought through enough. Silver gives it a thumbs down as well. Gorman walks away evidently frustrated.

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.

Actually, I would invest in that book. She is on the wrong track. Instead of the same thing on both sides. The viewer’s side should be illustrations and the reader’s side be the text. The illustrations on the viewer’s side would illustrate what is being read. So yes, with adjustments this is actually not a bad idea. I have other ideas too.
