Everyone’s heard of it or seen it on television – Shark Tank, the television show that gives inventors and entrepreneurs a chance at celebrity sponsorship for the production of their invention. Beyond just a popular TV show, Shark Tank has actually provided the real world with a whole new market of new products and inventions. Now we can find these items for sale online relatively easily.
As much as you may really want to, like us, you probably can’t dive in and purchase every single invention brought to life by the show. But that doesn’t mean we cant grab up a few of the best ones. Here to give you the details, this is our list of the top 10, best-selling Shark Tank products of 2016/2017.
1. Scrub Daddy
First off, we get things started with Scrub Daddy. This new, scratch-free sponge is easier on hands but tougher on messes. Its revolutionary, temperature-based pliability and texture make it great for a multitude of cleaning tasks. It also won’t hold odors or nasty food debris – a common problem with the sponge of yesteryear. The great, new Scrub Daddy comes in convenient packs of four.
2. Fiber Fix
Fiber Fix is a cool, new repair product for all sorts of things. It is a fabric, fibrous tape that superbly holds together points of damage such as cracks, splits, and tears in any number of materials. 10 minutes after its use, it is said to be 100 times stronger than duct tape. Now, you can repair all sorts of things at home or in your business, from pipes to woodwork, and even tools.
The Readerest is the perfect solution for anyone who has experienced the dilemma of holding onto sunglasses, earbuds, and other personal accessories while out and about. This smart invention uses a magnetic holder that can be affixed to any piece of clothing. The holder then keeps your personal accessories accessible yet out of the way. We love it!
4. Drop Stop
Have you ever felt the frustration of dropping small items between the cracks and crevices of your car or truck’s seats? The Drop Stop, a pocket that fills this space previewed on Shark Tank to a grand reception. We’re glad it did because now we’ll be ready for that pocket-emptying conspiracy that always takes place in the car. This product is sold in sets of two.
The Lollacup is a new and very appealing type of sippy-cup for infants. Not only is it quite fun to look at, but it also teaches straw-use at a very early age. This is done through a revolutionary, new valve-free straw. The Lollacup also comes with its own cleaning brush, so cleanup is always quick and easy. Kids and parents alike love this Shark Tank alumni.
6. Mission Belt
With the Mission Belt, you never have to buy another belt again. This is because its smart design allows for hole-free resizing at a moment’s notice. In addition, this belt’s buckle is removable, making security checkpoints a breeze. You can even make this buy with additional good cause, as one dollar from every purchase is dedicated to the fight against global hunger.
7. Squatty Potty
A lot of awareness on proper posture during bathroom use has manifested recently. As a solution to the related design flaws in most toilets, the Squatty Potty is the Shark Tank’s choice. Set directly in front of your regular toilet, the Squatty Potty gives the feet an elevated resting place, making for healthier, more effective bathroom movements.
8 Skinnies Instant Lifts
Skinnies Instant Lifts are a wearable swimming accessory that discretely thins you out and smooths out cellulite in the thigh areas. It is sleekly worn under the swimsuit and can be used for hours at a time without difficulty. With easy size adjustments and allergen-free materials, you can look exactly how you like, all day, the next time you visit the pool.
In the past, tearing a window or door screen was a sickening experience. This meant that the entire frame had to be rescreened, or a whole new screen itself had to be purchased. Making this absurdity a thing of the past, Screenmend uses a self-stick technology that anyone can use to mend screen damage. Simply cut the product to size, apply it to the damaged area, and hit it for a moment with your hairdryer. Screenmend comes in small, convenient patches as well as larger rolls.
10. Morninghead Cap
We’ve all heard jokes of bed-head, or morning-head. No one is at their prettiest when they first wake up from a long sleep. The Morninghead Cap is a Shark Tank solution to just this problem. Simply wake up, add water to the cap, and put it on. In minutes, your hair will have taken on the perfect amount of moisture, making it stylable just as though you just stepped out of the shower. For those frequently engaged in a morning rush, this is a great time-saver.
