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.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
