LIFE-SIZE CONSTRUCTION TUBES, A LIGHT-UP DOG THAT INSPIRES CREATIVITY, SINKABLE BUILDING BLOCKS AND MORE, ON ABC'S 'THE TOY BOX'

"Episode 107" - Passionate toy inventors present the mentors and judges with unique concepts that include life-size construction tubes, sinkable building blocks, a new idea for a board game, a therapy doll and a lightbox in the shape of a terrier, on an all-new episode of ABC's "The Toy Box," airing on FRIDAY, APRIL 21 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network

This week's toy inventions include:

In each episode of "The Toy Box," inventors present their toy concepts to a group of mentors that include Dylan's Candy Bar owner, Dylan Lauren, toy guru Jim Silver and Pixar creative director of Consumer Products, Jen Tan.

That winning toy will be sold exclusively at Toys"R"Us(R) after the series finale.
