9-year-old Texas girl wins toy invention contest

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – A nine-year-old Texas girl will have the chance to pitch her toy idea at the next American International Toy Fair after winning a contest.

Fat Brain Toys says that Emma Turner of Marble Falls, Texas, won its annual toy invention contest with her idea for a lighted box that attracts bugs.

Emma will also receive a $2,500 scholarship and a collection of prizes worth $500 from the Omaha-based toy retailer.

The winner was chosen by a panel of toy industry veterans after an online vote helped pick the finalists .
