Top 8 Most Successful Shark Tank Products

ABC’s entrepreneurial pitch show “Shark Tank” premiered in 2009, and its 13th season recently concluded. The premise is simple; inventors and entrepreneurs pitch their products to real-life investors, called “sharks.” The investors evaluate the products and decide whether to back the companies with their own money. Over the years, the show has exposed its audience to some of the most unique inventions ever conceived, and the sharks have seen some great ideas that just needed an investor to take off. Here are the top eight most successful products that got their start on “Shark Tank,” generating a minimum of $100 million in sales each:

1.Bombas (comfort socks and T-shirts that donate one item per item sold to help the homeless)

2. Scrub Daddy (reusable super sponge in the shape of a smiley face that gets firm in cold water and soft in warm water)

3. Squatty Potty (a personal care company best known for its toilet stool, which is designed to promote easier bowel movements)

4. Simply Fit Board (an exercise board that you stand on and twist)

5. The Original Comfy (wearable blankets with hoods)

6. Tipsy Elves (holiday-themed apparel in the form of ugly Christmas sweaters)

7. The Bouqs (an online seller of flowers that partners with eco-friendly farms)

8. Sleep Styler (heat-free hair rollers created from memory foam, to use while sleeping)

The money that the sharks invest is all theirs and is not provided by the show. The sharks typically require a stake in the business. Shark Lori Greiner has a stake in half of the listed successful Shark Tank ventures. Some Shark Tank victors, like Bombas, have embarked on social missions, giving back to underserved and impoverished communities. The show’s premise was inspired by Japan’s Tigers of Money.
