Finally, toy maker Rick Aguila gets the chance to pitch his Party Cannon to the mentors.
Party Cannon is a party game that makes everyone a winner. Simply hit the target and prizes, toys and candy are launched through the air. According to CrowdfundingPR, the cannons are instantly reusable, making them ideal for multiple parties and rounds. They can also be personalized with posters and dry-erase boards. “The Party Cannon doesn’t require any additional equipment such as ladders, ropes or poles and you can take it anywhere, an empty field, the pool or even the beach,” according to CrowdfundingPR’s report. Kids inspired Aguila to create the revolutionary party game.
The mentors think it’s a fun idea but Jim Silver worries about repeat play. Dylan Lauren finds it whimsical but believes it needs to be more commercial, in addition to suggesting a name change to “Candy Cannon.” Silver is worried about safety and cannot get past his repeat play concerns and does not okay it to go to the next round. Jen Tan and Lauren like it, however, and like that he is reinventing a party game, passing it to the next round.
In the Toy Box, the kids are immediately excited by the prospect of getting candy from a cannon. Hitting the target, the kids believe the cannon is unique and are completely focused on scooping up the candy. They even like the price of $59.99, but Noah Ritter suggests adding a fridge to the cannon in order to keep the candy cold. They are really won over by the idea that the cannon could shoot out money. Sophia Grace Brownlee doesn’t think it’s much different from a pinata, though.
Ultimately, the Party Cannon did not totally win over the kid judges and fails to 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.
