The Toy Box is an American reality television series that premiered on April 7, 2017 on ABC. The show depicts aspiring entrepreneur-contestants as they present toy inventions first to a panel of toy industry professionals, then to a panel of children. Only toys approved by the mentors are presented to the judges "in the Toy Box," who select one toy to advance to the finals each episode. The season's winning toy will be produced and distributed by Mattel and sold at Toys "R" Us stores.[2]

On June 16, 2017, ABC renewed the series for a second season.[3]
