Toy: The Grid

Inventor: Tom and Mike

The Grid is “a game where players aim to collect their opponents’ pieces,” according to ABC.

The mentors like the idea, but Jim Silver worries about how it would stand out in the toy aisle. It is also more expensive than most board games, costing $29.99. Dylan Lauren doesn’t see it as an endless play or repeat play type of toy and both she and Jen Tan give it a “game over.”

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.
