Toy: Pool Cubes

Inventor: Troy Orsburne

Pool Cubes are “sinkable building blocks for the swimming pool,” according to ABC.

The mentors like the idea and Jen Tan likes that kids can essentially “create their own water park.” They worry, however, that weight needs to be added to the cube for it to sink to the bottom of a pool. Jim Silver points out that it’s a very small market, in addition to it being more expensive than most pool toys. Dylan Lauren and Jen Tan, despite liking the idea, do not pass it to the Toy Box. Silver sees the potential in institutions that teach kids how to swim, but passes on it as well.

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.
