Shark Tank is one of the best shows on TV for one simple reason: you can buy almost anything featured on the show. The series profiles entrepreneurs and inventors from all over the country, showing the products and ideas they've created. Some have amazing inventions that will change your life. Others create restaurants and pop-up shops that add character to communities. You'll find yourself an expert in royalty deals and equity after binge-watching enough episodes! But, you'll also find yourself wanting to spend tons of money on everything you see!
Every single episode of the show has at least a few things you'll want to look up and buy in real life. There are some ridiculously life-changing ideas on this show! Luckily, plenty of the real products shown on the show are available for purchase in real life. Extra bonus: many of them have been fine-tuned since they were featured on the show and may have other variations. Here are some of the coolest Shark Tank products you can buy right now!
Where to buy: BuyDropStop.com, Walmart
Some Shark Tank products are ideal for certain subsets of people. This is for basically anyone with a car! How many times has your phone slid down the gap between your seat and the middle console? If you're anything like me, about 100 times a week. The Drop Stop is just a soft neoprene filler to close off that gap. It's so simple, but so genius (like most Shark Tank products, tbh). You can get two of them (plus a few extra products) for under $20 so, I mean, why wouldn't you want to try this?! The only negative part of this product is the fact that you won't be dropping change down the gap that you can find later when you clean your car!
Where to buy: NerdWax.com, Amazon
If you have glasses, you probably need this product. Like most Shark Tank items, this one solves a particular problem you may not have ever even guessed there was a solution for. Anyone with glasses knows the annoying struggle of them sliding down your nose when you bend down. It's a small but obnoxious peril of being a glasses-wearer. Nerdwax works to fix that problem. You just dab a little of the Beeswax blend on your nose where you want your glasses to stay, and voilà, they stay! The company also sells cleaning cloths for your glasses shaped like slices of pizza and unicorns. So, yeah, they're for the nerds but still hip AF!
Where to buy: illumibowl.com, Bed Bath & Beyond
This is the coolest thing for your bathroom that you never knew you needed. Sometimes when it's late at night and you have to go to the bathroom, turning on the bright, glaring light is the worst. You're blinded, you feel disoriented, and even worse, sometimes it wakes you up too much and you can't fall back asleep. Enter the IllumiBowl, the night-light for your toilet. It's bright enough to see what you're doing, but not so bright your eyes hurt! Plus, it comes in fun colors like blue and red. Oh, and there's a germ defense version that fights bacteria in your toilet! We are truly living in the best times.
Where to buy: BakersEdge.com, Amazon
Let's be real: the best part of a pan of brownies is the crispy edges. With this product, every brownie has a crispy edge. It's literally a brownie-lovers dream. The patented Edge Brownie Pan has dividers that basically turns your pan of brownies into a brownie snake. But the end result is perfect, crisp edges on every single brownie right out of the pan. It's a no-brainer purchase that everyone needs in their kitchen. The company also makes muffin pans, a lasagna pan, and so much more.
Cup Board Pro
Where to buy: FireHouseChefKY.com
This is not only one of the coolest inventions from Shark Tank but it's accompanied by a story of true triumph and tragedy. The Cup Board Pro, a cutting board with an attachment for scraps, was created by fireman and Firehouse Chef Keith Young. His kids had to present the invention on the show since their father passed away from 9/11-related cancer before he could make his dream a reality. Even worse, their mother had passed away only a few years prior. But these resilient kids presented their father's invention to the Sharks and not only did they get a deal, but they got investments from everyone. If that's not enough to make you buy ten think about how much easier this little device makes cooking!
Where to buy: Pandaloon.com
Some of the best Shark Tank products are ones you probably don't need but just have to have. Enter: Pandaloon. This company literally just makes costumes for dogs and it's amazing. They're primarily for smaller dogs and essentially turn your pup into a stuffed animal. These are perfect for Halloween — or just whenever you feel like having the cutest pooch around. They've extended to a whole slew of different products and any purchase you make helps benefits Pandas International! You can have your pet looking adorable while you do good. What could be better?
Where to buy: SafeGrabs.com, Amazon
Many of the most useful Shark Tank products are for making cooking easier and this is no different. Safe Grabs are silicone mats intended to be put underneath anything you microwave so that you can just use the mat to grab your food with no burns. So simple, so necessary. Burning myself on cups of coffee or bowls of soup fresh from the microwave is a way of life for me so this invention is kind of revolutionary. Plus, the mat can be used just about anywhere. Put a hot pan on it to cool. Use it as a food cover or placemat. You can even use it to open a jar! Sometimes the most innovative inventions are the ones that seem to have taken no effort to create!
Where to buy: HelloLumio.com
Lumio is one of the most awe-inspiring lighting solutions we've ever seen. The classic Lumio is shaped like a book and fans open to reveal an accordion-like lamp. The minimalist design and slimness make it perfect for any household. Plus, it's just dang gorgeous. Sure, it's on the pricier side ($150+), but can you really put a price on something that will make your home? Designer Max Gunawan is all about clean lines and minimalism and he has completely nailed that aesthetic with the creation of the Lumio.
Where to buy: Shop.HatchBaby.com, Target
It's hard to reinvent the wheel when it comes to baby products. Hatch Baby doesn't try to necessarily reinvent anything, but instead updates an old standard: the night light. Hatch Baby Rest is a night light, a white noise machine, and you can control it all from your phone. These are old stalwarts every baby needs rolled into one and updated for the modern age. Along with that, Hatch Baby also has a website all about answering real parents' questions. Because, let's be honest, every parent has questions!
Where to buy: GetQFlex.com
I think it's a shared experience between everyone that we all have a grandparent with a backscratcher that we used to play with as kids. At the time, we didn't realize how amazing a back massager or scratcher may be. As adults, we are fully aware and Q-Flex brings that concept into the new millennium. The Q-Flex has an ergonomic design that allows it to bend and supply the right amount of pressure on your back. Gone are the days of a cheap, wooden, Dollar Store back scratcher. It even has a soft grip handle to make the whole thing even easier! They call it an acupressure tool, we call it heavenly.
Where to buy: PhoneSoap.com, Amazon
Germaphobes will think this is one of the most genius Shark Tank products of all time. PhoneSoap isn't literally soap for your phone, but a device that uses UV rays to clear it of germs and bacteria. The PhoneSoap container is big enough for any smartphone, has charging ports so you can charge and clean at the same time, and it only takes 10 minutes to sanitize. Phones go through a lot. We're constantly touching them with grubby, dirty hands or putting them down on gross surfaces. Why wouldn't you want an easy and safe way to de-germ your best accessory?
Where to buy: Grypmat.com, Amazon
Grypmat is a must-have for anyone who isn't afraid of a getting their hands a little dirty. This tool tray not only helps organize your tools but also grips to vehicles all on its own, meaning it's perfect for when you need to get under the hood. Everything you need will be an arms reach away right on your car, not across the garage. The high friction of the mat allows for it to stay where you need it and really just makes life easier. There are several different sizes of the Grypmat and they suggest it for working on cars — or airplanes! Or maybe even sea vessels — whatever floats your boat with this nifty organizational mat!
Where to buy: Frywall.com, Target, Amazon
We said it once and we'll say it again, some of the best Shark Tank products are innovations to help you in the kitchen. Frywall is one of our faves because it solves one of the biggest problems with cooking: splatter. This is especially relevant if you make tons of sauces and soups. Splatter can stain your stove, make a gross mess, and usually get all over you while you're cooking. But, with the Frywall, you don't have to worry about that. It's basically like a cone you put on your dog post-surgery, but for your pots and pans instead! Best part: you can just throw it in the dishwasher when you're done making it 100x easier to clean this than, say, your stove after sauce splatters and gets crusted onto it!
Where to buy: Aquapaw.com, Chewy.com
Any pet owner knows that giving your dog a bath is almost impossible. They struggle to get out of the tub, it's hard to clean them completely without freaking them out, and you're constantly trying to keep them comfortable. Aquapaw is a clever little solution to the complications of pet bathing. You hook it up to an outside spigot or right in your shower and wear it like a glove. Water comes out of the glove at a steady speed and from there you can clean your pet thoroughly, covering every part of your furry friend. Not only does it spray water but it also acts as a scrubber! It streamlines the whole process while getting your pet in and out of the bath way quicker. Because there is nothing messier or more stressful than pet bath time!
Similar to the company's shower glove, Awquapaw has another something cool to help bathtime for your pup go a bit smoother. The Slow Treater sticks to your shower wall and will distract your dog from their loathed shower by slowly dispersing a tablespoon of peanut butter. The Slow Treater is exactly what it sounds like and it. is. genius.
Where to buy: KodiakCakes.com, Target
Protein pancakes that actually taste good? Yup. Kodiak Cakes is all about providing fuel and protein to your body while tasting delicious at the same time. They've grown from pancakes to a whole slew of products from waffles to cornbread. Making your own protein pancakes is all the rage on Pinterest, but who has time for that? Kodiak Cakes aren't full of junk, provide great fuel for the day ahead, and did we mention they taste incredible?! Anything that makes eating healthy easier is always a plus but you never really know what you're going to get with prepackaged stuff. Kodiak Cakes is a rare quick and easy bet that actually comes through on the healthy part. That's probably why it's one of the best-selling Shark Tank products of all time!
Squatty Potty LLC.
Where to buy: SquattyPotty.com, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target
Until this popped up on Shark Tank, I had no idea we were all pooping wrong. The Squatty Potty is all about correcting our poor pooping behavior and making bowel movements way easier. They may sound a bit TMI, but trust us this is something guaranteed to make your life easier. The coolest part is how simple it is! The Squatty Potty is simply a stool (there are a few variations, but that's the main gist) that you put your feet on while you poop that puts you in a squatting position ideal for that particular activity. It's how the cavemen did it and how we should be doing it now! They've done plenty of medical case studies about proper toilet posture and this is proven to help you go when the going gets tough. This is by far one of the most informative and oddly comforting Shark Tank products ever!
Where to buy: ScrubDaddy.com, Target, Amazon, everywhere!
There's a reason this is the most successful of any of the Shark Tank products — it works! The Scrub Daddy (along with the Scrub Mommy and a whole slew of Scrub products) is the best sponge you will ever use, hands down. The materials used to make the sponge allow for it to change textures with either hot or cold water and help it resist bacteria. Oh, and the cute little face carved into the sponge isn't just there for show! The smile is perfect for cleaning spoons and the round shape helps you clean out cups and mugs. Sponges have been the same for so many years that we didn't really know we needed them to be reinvented. Then the Scrub Daddy came along and changing the dish cleaning game forever!
Radiate Portable Campfire
Where to buy: radiateportablecampfire.com, Bed Bath And Beyond, Amazon
The Radiate Campfire was on season nine of Shark Tank and made a huge splash, coming away with three offers. The portable campfires are reusable and last three to five hours by burning recycled soy wax and paper briquettes inside of a tin. The product has a thirty-year shelf life, and it is supposed to save you from worrying about embers, smoky smells, and soot. They come in multiple scents (so far, Eucalyptus, Holiday, and unscented), and they are super convenient for campers and survival kits.
The Original Comfy
Where to buy: thecomfy.com, Target, QVC, Bed Bath And Beyond, Amazon
The Comfy was developed by two single dads who call themselves The Comfy Bros. The bros appeared on Shark Tank in December 2017 and received an offer from Barbara Corcoran. Now, The Comfy has been featured in Country Living, Business Insider, The Lad Bible, Buzzfeed, and a bunch of other popular sites. The Comfy is basically a hoodie that is also a blanket, like a really fluffy Snuggie with a hood. It comes in nine colors, and you have the option to buy the matching slippers, too.
Where to buy: getbetterback.com, Gaiam, Amazon
Basically, everyone could use BetterBack. BetterBack guides you to sit with perfect posture to help ease existing back pain and prevent new back pain from emerging. You can wear it standing or sitting, and using it for only fifteen minutes daily can fix your default posture. It can also come with memory foam or a heating and cooling pad to be even better at helping with pain, it's ergonomic, and its company offers a sixty-day home trial. Barbara Corcoran loved it, which is enough convincing for us.
Where to buy: spikeball.com, Dicks Sporting Goods, Amazon
Spikeball is a phenomenon. Maybe it's because a bunch of hot guys work for the company, maybe it's because you can find people playing Spikeball at every park, beach, and college campus across the country, maybe it's because Casey Neistat and Dude Perfect both gave Spikeball two big thumbs up. Who knows? But if you're not playing Spikeball yet, you're definitely behind the times. Spikeball is its own sport with its own rules and tournaments, and it got its launch on Shark Tank. Interestingly, the deal fell apart because the Spikeball team didn't want to brand the game as a toy, and the series only helped its success by giving it exposure.
Where to buy: hoodiepillow.com, Amazon
Another idea that just came from adding a hood to someone that already exists (see: The Comfy), Hoodie Pillow is a pillowcase with a hood. It is made of sweatshirt material, has holes for your headphones and a pocket for your phone, and is great for anyone who needs it to be darker and quieter so they can sleep. So, people on planes, college students with horrible roommates, people that enjoy naps, and light sleepers, this one is for you. The company appeared on Shark Tank in 2013, and they're still going strong.
Where to buy: econutssoap.com, Bed Bath and Beyond, Amazon
Eco Nuts wants to help you clean your laundry in a way that's healthier for you and for the planet with sustainable packaging and nontoxic organic cleaners. Their soap berries are sourced from Nepal to create jobs for the Nepalese people after the 2015 Nepal earthquake, their manufacturing is ecologically friendly, and they're certified cruelty-free. They also make surface and glass cleaners, dryer balls, reusable towels, and scouring powder. Eco Nuts didn't get a deal on Shark Tank, but they still sell about one million dollars worth of product yearly.
Line Cutterz Ring
Where to buy: linecutterz.com, Walmart, Amazon
Before Line Cutterz, you had to cut fishing line with your teeth or deal with holding a live fish on a rod in one hand and a knife in the other. That does not seem safe. Line Cutterz founder Vance Zahorski patented his line-cutting ring design, went onto Shark Tank's eighth season, and now has expanded beyond cutting rings to an entire line of fishing gear. The OG rings come in multiple colors including glow in the dark, America, and branded logo products.
Where to buy: dudeproducts.com, Target, Walgreens, Amazon
Don't let the name fool you — Dude Wipes are not just for dudes, even if their masculine packaging has done an A+ job of marketing towards men. Dude wipes are for anyone who thinks that toilet paper honestly just doesn't cut it. These flushable wipes are a way better option than the baby wipes you've probably been using because they won't clog your toilet and ruin your plumbing. The dudes appeared on Shark Tank season seven and cut a deal with legend Mark Cuban, and Dude Wipes now have shower products, an Amazon button, and a deal with Target. Duuuuuude.
Where to buy: spoonerboards.com, Amazon
A surf shop owner tried to make a skateboard deck out of an old dog igloo (...which brings up its own bundle of questions), failed, and ended up accidentally creating a whole new type of board. Barbara Corcoran and Mark Cuban both made a deal with Spooner boards in 2016 for $200,000 and eight percent equity of the company. The Spooner board is fun on its own, but the wheel-less board also serves as a great training board for future surfers, skateboarders, and snowboarders.
Where to buy: thebeardking.com, Amazon
Beard King went on Shark Tank in January 2016, and their sales grew 400% in only one day. The effect continued for another sixty days, which was enough for Beard King to grow brand recognition and stay kicking to this day. Their signature product is a Beard Bib, which is lowkey exactly what it sounds like. Men put the bib on and allow beard trimmings to fall into the giant cavernous bib to reduce clean-up time after grooming their facial hair. There is also a truly horrifying line of women's merch.
Where to buy: iceshaker.com, GNC, Amazon
The Ice Shaker is a shaker bottle that keeps your protein mush cold for over thirty hours. It was developed by the Gronkowski brothers, and yes we do mean *those* Gronkowskis. Naturally, there's a Gronk-sponsored Ice Shaker because even the NFL GOAT likes to keep his protein shakes cool, but the company is primarily led by his brother Chris, who used to be a fullback for the Cowboys, the Colts, and the Broncos. All five Gronowski brothers are involved in the protein shaker business somehow, and four of the brothers played professional football with the NFL. I will buy literally anything they are selling.
Where to buy: tipsyelves.com, Nordstrom Rack, Amazon
It's lowkey hard to imagine a time before Tipsy Elves and their LOL-worthy Christmas sweaters. Since appearing on Shark Tank in 2013, Tipsy Elves has started making Hawaiian shirts, swim trunks, ski suits, Pride gear, Halloween costumes, and joke apparel for basically every major holiday. Unsurprisingly, the company started out while its founders were in college (likely in frats, because the owners were looking for outfits to wear to theme parties). Now, every frat bro in college has a drunk Santa Christmas sweater and the option to double down on a "Dat Lass Tho" St. Patrick's Day t-shirt.
Where to buy: ring.com, QVC, Best Buy, Home Depot, Amazon
Since appearing on Shark Tank and *not* receiving any offers, Ring has been purchased by Amazon for *a lot* of money and is becoming more and more commonplace in American homes. Ring is a video doorbell that streams live video of a home's front door to your smartphone and saves a recording of its feed, so you always know what's going on at your front door. It also notifies you when someone is on your property and lets you speak with them from the comfort and safety of far, far away from your door. How the hell did the Sharks not want in?!
