Tonight, the first episode of Shark Tank in 2019 is going to air featuring Bruw, Tush Baby, Moki Door Stop, and Sproing Fitness. There are some unusual names clearly in the mix here, but hopefully, the end result of this episode is that there are some great deals made in the Tank and beyond that, some successful entrepreneurs. Why not start the year off with a win?
As we often do here at CarterMatt, let’s start off by sharing the synopsis for the episode — following that, check out our take on some of the individual products.
First into the Tank is a husband and wife team from Newtown, Connecticut, who pitch their simple and brilliant rooftop assistance design that helps access your vehicle’s roof with one easy step; entrepreneurs from Chicago, Illinois, present their fitness workout that offers a softer, lower impact alternative to the treadmill; a teen entrepreneur from West Bloomfield, Michigan, introduces his solution for making the perfect coffee at home with his cold brew kit; a mom from Walnut Creek, California, presents her simple baby seat that sits right on your hip and makes it easier to carry your baby.
Bruw – Cold-brew coffee is delicious. There’s no doubt about that in our mind. What makes this smart is that it’s a way that anyone can enjoy cold-brew coffee for a pretty low price, provided that they’ve got some mason jars lying around. That, plus some quality coffee, is really all you need in order to make this work. Sometimes, the simplest inventions are the best.
Sproing Fitness – The company is advertising itself as offering up one of the biggest innovations in running in many years. The basic idea here is to reinvent the treadmill in a way that allows runners to actually fall forward as they move — a better simulation to real running. It’s hard to convince people to change their workouts, so this may be a harder sell for the Sharks, at least immediately, than something like Bruw.
Tush Baby – This is super-smart! the idea behind the product is that it gives parents of infants an easier time holding their kids while they go about their day — the idea here is for it to help parents while also being safe and even ergonomic for infants, and it succeeds on both fronts. While $64 (the current sale price) may seem like a lot of money, it’s probably much cheaper to some of the alternatives that are out there.
Moki Door Stop – This is the sort of product that does often fare well in the Tank — mostly because it finds a solution to what for many may be a fairly-common problem. This time around, that problem is smaller people (or people who have really tall cars) not being able to access their roof. This Door Stop fixes that problem and gives them the access that they need.
