Toy: Maze-O

Inventors: Jessica and Daniel Friedman

Maze-O is “a maze-building toy,” according to ABC.

The mentors find the idea creative, but Jen Tan points out that it would need to come with a toy car to make it completely play-ready. They also don’t think it fits into one specific market, which could be both positive and negative. Jim Silver also think there needs to be a game component. He doesn’t think, however, that it’s ready for the Toy Box. Dylan Lauren disagrees and sends it to the Toy Box, as does Tan, despite believing there’s more work to be done.

In the Toy Box, Toby Grey thinks the toy is “amaze-o,” but Sophia Grace Brownlee worries that she would quickly get bored with it. Grey thinks it’s very creative and imaginative. Ultimately, Maze-O 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.
