Shark Tank: Cars, Bikes, Apps, And More
This week there was a double feature for Shark Tank filled with a lot of great deals and offers.
Here are the deals ad my thoughts on them:
I think Mark’s right on this one. For me I agree that Book Stores are unfortunately dying and I can think of toys we have gotten over the years from McDonalds and other places with a url on it and we rarely every checked it out online or downloaded the free whatever that came with it. So, I think he’s probably got this right. Plus, he’s dead right about the virtual reality goggles. My husband and I both got a pair for Christmas, We both used them probably exactly once and they have not been used since and they sit in our office on a shelf. He accepted a $500,000 deal from Lori.
This week the guest Shark was Spanx owner and creator Sara Blakely.
When he first said he had a lot of clothes for dads I was like and…? But, they are pretty cool, I mean they’ve got a place to hang things for the Dad and padding on the shoulder and places where they hold the baby so, it’s soft, that’s pretty cool…. until you hear the price…. OUCH! They are more expensive than maternity wear from a high end store. No Deal.
These people are in a mess, and I normally lean towards Mark and what he says, but boy, Kevin is probably the person for this because he’s exactly what they need. Someone who’s not too nice that can fight back and get their product back, Daymond was just getting ready to steal that deal and Kevin swooped in and grabbed it. I think they both heard “hotels” and that was when they both started to jump. They accepted Kevin’s offer of $300,000 for 15%.
The morph. I was surprised that Mark seemed to want no part of this deal and he wouldn’t say why. My guess is he has a vested interest in something similar elsewhere…? They accepted a deal of $225,000 for 20% from Lori and Sara
This idea of advertisement wrapped cars is not new. I remember friends in high school having them and getting pad to drive their own car. The free part is cool, and the “car sharing” idea is cool – a potential nightmare in my opinion, but the idea is cool. They accepted an offer from Kevin for $500,000 for 2%.
This is a pretty cool idea. When you have kids who KNOWS what they’re going to really like? Without them having access to everything how will they know? I think this is a great idea. I remember almost having to make our grandson play football an entire season, and it just wasn’t his thing, and our granddaughter played half a season of volleyball and it wasn’t her thing. He turned out to be into drums, and she turned out to be into… well, … make up! lol So to be able to pay $79 or $90 and be able to drop in on different classes to help focus in on the ones they excel at is a GREAT idea. She accepted a deal from Mark at $500,000 for 15%.
update. This seems pretty expensive to me, but, maybe parents are willing to pay that much for a changing pad “nowadays”. lol
I agree with the Sharks. I don’t think anybody’s going to really want to be switching that tire out all the time, or maybe I am missing the point. Plus… $950 is like twice the price of a new electric bike according to the Sharks.. No deal.
I think this is a great idea. We have 4 kids and by the third – I think very little was written in the baby book, certainly way less than number 2 who had significantly less than number 1…. I think we have a baby book for number 4… The idea that you can mark a milestone quickly in the moment without having to be at home, have the book handy, ad a pen, and have your hands free…. is appealing. The fact that they text you questions, make it nice, too. No deal, though.
