Some of the best Shark Tank products aren't even that expensive

6 successful Shark Tank Businesses

Not to cheat on our favorite crime dramas, but is there anything as satisfying as watching Shark Tank?

For some reason, tuning in to a bunch of hopeful entrepreneurs as they present their crazy-smart invention ideas to the likes of Mark Cuban, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner, Daymond John, Robert Herjavec, and Barbara Corcoran is deeply entertaining. Plus, it can teach some pretty important life lessons about investing—which Ree Drummond had no problem passing along to her daughter Paige during a trip to Vegas once.

Sometimes it seems like there's a lot of "I'm outs" from the cast, but the ABC show has actually discovered quite a few ingenious products in its time—and the Sharks have made some serious cash from them, too! You might be shocked at how much the humble Scrub Daddy has amassed over the years. And what about Bombas? Those top so many Christmas lists these days!

Some of the best Shark Tank products aren't even that expensive, either. Many come in around $20, making it pretty easy to add these little wonders to your cart. Take a look at some of the top-selling items from the show.

1. Loll cup

Entrepreneurs presented a new product idea that promised to alleviate one of the many concerns of parents about the health of their babies. The cups produced by the company are made of materials without phthalates and biphenyl-A, compounds widely used in the production of plastic objects that can be harmful to health. Loll land has received $ 100,000 in investment and has grossed more than $ 1 million since appearing on the program.

2. Chord buddy

The device was designed by a parent who developed the device after observing the difficulty that his young daughter had to learn to play the guitar. Chord buddy can be attached to the strings of the instrument, making it easier for beginners to learn how to move their fingers very quickly. Shark Robert Herjavec invested US $ 150,000 in the idea, in exchange for a 20% stake in the company.

3. Buggy Beds

The idea attracted the attention of the program's five judges. It is a system that can detect and prevent bedbugs in furniture, beds, and sofas. The company has already grossed more than US $ 1 million and expanded to 23 other countries after the initial investment made in the program.

4. Groove book

The application that can be used by means of subscriptions offers a more concrete record of all memories stored on the Smartphone of each user. The Groove book delivers a bound book with the chosen photos at the end of each month, for $ 2.99. The company gained 50,000 subscribers shortly after appearing on the program. In 2014, it was purchased by the printing company Shutter fly for US $ 14.5 million.

5. Wicked Good Cupcakes

The company's cupcakes are served in a jar and wrapped by hand. The sweets last up to 10 days without the need for refrigeration and can be frozen for up to six months. In the negotiation, Canadian Kevin O'Leary donated $ 75,000 to the company in exchange for $ 0.50 per cupcake sold.

6. Scrub Daddy

The company is the biggest success of all seasons of the program. The cleaning sponge created by the American Aaron Krause is rigid when used with cold water and very soft when used with warm water. In addition, the part does not accumulate odors and waste for up to two months. Lori Greiner invested $ 200,000 in the idea and Scrub Daddy has sold more than 10 million units since the Shark Tank, earning more than $ 50 million.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
