Inventor: Peter Wachtel
Jumpstix is “a scooter with a built-in pogo stick,” according to ABC.
The mentors worry about how high it can really get off the ground, but Jen Tan finds it intriguing. They worry, however, that the pogo stick is sold as an extension, which could make traditional scooter makers liable. Dylan Lauren doesn’t think it’s ready for the Toy Box, but Tan likes it and passes it into the Toy Box. Jim Silver has safety concerns, but thinks there are too many unknowns. He does not pass it to the Toy Box.

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.
