What’s This TV Show About?
An ABC competitive reality series hosted by Eric Stonestreet, The Toy Box features inventors presenting their toys to judges who are really on their game — actual kids. Adi Ash (age 10), Paxton Booth (age 7), Sydney Mae Estrella (age 9), Kyle Lee (age 7), Joachim Powell (age 11), Gideon Reynolds (age 6), Emma Sobel (age 9), Madison Stevens (age 8), and Olivia Trujillo (age 12) join returnee Noah Ritter (age 8), on the judges panel.
In the second season, there will be a rotating panel of five kid-judges per episode. The winner from each week will move on to the finale. The grand prize winner’s toy will be made by Mattel; sold exclusively at Toys “R” Us stores nationwide and on Toysrus.com, where it joins last season’s winner, ArtSplash; and will receive a cash prize of $100,000.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of The Toy Box averaged a 0.42 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.31 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 33% and 20%, respectively. Find out how The Toy Box stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
Last season, my cynical, starving gut told me that with the Mattel and Toys “R” Us tie-ins, this sly product placement program could survive. As the ratings plummeted (and my appetite soared) though, that seemed less likely. In the second season, the numbers have dropped very low so I expect The Toy Box to be cancelled this time around. I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and will update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free updates on any cancellation or renewal news about The Toy Box.
3/15/2018 update: Although The Toy Box has not been cancelled or renewed for season three, news has broken that Toys “R” Us is closing its doors. Here’s more on how that affects this TV show’s cancellation and renewal chances (not to mention my dinner plans).
