ABC’s The Toy Box will be returning for another season, after being approved by executives.
ABC has announced its decision to renew The Toy Box, a reality toy competition show that first aired in April 2017 in the United States, for a second season. The Toy Box is developed by Hudsun Media and Electus in partnership with Mattel.
The reality toy competition will still be hosted by Eric Stonestreet and a kid judging panel comprised of Sophia Grace Brownlee, Aalyrah Caldwell, Toby Grey, and the hilarious Noah Ritter. We also expect the original mentors – Jim Silver, Dylan Lauren, and Jen Tan – to return to the show. According to reports, the new episodes of The Toy Box are already in production. The show shares some commonality with ABC’s The Shark Tank, where creators are vying for investor’s buy-in in their product or idea. Only one toy will win the grand prize. Similarly, the toys need to first pass through the adult mentors before being approved by the kids’ judging panel.
Fans of the show can expect all new toy inventors along with brand new toy inventions all vying for the grand prize – a contract with Mattel to produce and distribute the winning toy invention nationwide at ToysRUs retail stores. What fascinating creations will we see on Season Two of The Toy Box? Will there be any exciting new twists to the formula or can we expect more of the same? One thing is for certain – these amateur toy inventors all have dreams of claiming the grand prize, but only one lucky inventor and toy invention will be able to claim that elusive prize.
Last season amidst stiff competition and inspiring creativity, Ryan Stewart’s 3D Liquid Art took home the contract with Mattel. 3D Liquid Art eventually became known as Artsplash 3D Liquid Art. Candy Krusher and Noisy Person Cards did not win the show; however, they went into production and are featured at ToysRUs stores. Noisy Person Cards retained its original name while Candy Krusher is known as the Sweet Shaper. These toys are all produced by Mattel and sold and distributed at ToysRUs stores nationwide.
As of this time, there is no confirmed date of return. All we know is that The Toy Box will, in fact, be returning for a second season at some point. Perhaps we’ll learn of a more precise date in the coming months.
