(CNN/WPBF) - A young toy inventor wants to take his product to the next level this holiday season, and the Florida boy hopes his toy is on your wish list.
Most 11-year-old boys are dying to buy everything in site when they walk into toy stores, but William George's is a little different. He's busy inventing toys for stores.
It started when he was bored with his old teddy bear.
"I took my mom's MP3 player, and there was a hole in my teddy bear," said William.
And Pezo pals was created. His mom and dad thought he had a great idea, so it was perfected.
"I have improved it by adding a personality, and it's magical because it comes alive," said William.
It tells more than 100 different stories using different voices, and it records your voice and plays music.
William and his family are trying to get them in stores all throughout the country. Currently, you'll find them in South Florida at Learning Express stores.
"We actually just got them in about a week and a half ago," said Mark Monaroe, with the Learning Express. "I think just today we sold about six or seven of them. It's exceeding our expectations."
While William is excited that it's taking off, the little inventor isn't all about selling and making a profit. He would like Pezo Pals to end up in the hands of kids who are less fortunate.
This fifth-grader's goal is to make his product better by landing a spot on ABC's "Shark Tank."
