Dressing your kids is a snap with Rags to Raches’ children’s rompers that combine comfort, function and fashion.
“Without the hassle of snaps and an elastic neckline, we’ve made the romper super easy to just slide on and off,” said Rachel Nillson, owner. “No more dealing with a wriggly toddler and snaps.”
“In the last year we have sold over $2 million dollars worth and the demand keeps growing,” Nillson added. “Parents love the easy access and the no hassle while getting their littles ready for the day.”
In February this year, Nilsson pitched in a patriotic Shark Tank episode featuring all made-in-America products. She asked for $200,000 for 10% equity and made a deal with Robert Herjavec for 15%.

Hot Tot Haircare
Hot Tot provides a complete line of hypoallergenic hair products just for kids. Megan Gage, a mom of two, started the company after she couldn’t find “safe and effective” hair products for her infant son. She made a $75,000 deal with Mark Cuban for 40% equity in season 4.
“With formulas designed to cleanse gently, condition and style, there is something for everyone and the products are for babies and big kids alike,” said Gage. “Since appearing on Shark Tank (January 2013), Hot Tot has become a global brand with distribution throughout North America, Europe and Asia.”

When Hill went on Shark Tank in September 2015, the Beebo had just launched and had about $20,000 in sales. Since then, it’s enjoyed $435,000 in sales.

8. Mensch on a Bench
The Mensch on a Bench is the new Elf on the Shelf. Four years ago, Neal Hoffman set out to make Hanukkah more Funukkah by creating a new Jewish tradition. His Mensch on a Bench doll managed to score an investment from Robert Herjavec and Lori Greiner in December 2014. After selling 100,000 Mensches, Hoffman created a sidekick for the Mensch: Bubbe. The doll bears his 72-year-old aunt’s voice and talks like a Yiddish-speaking Jewish grandmother, who has all the answers of a magic 8-ball.
While supplies last, get 50% off Bubbe when you buy another item at TheMenschonaBench.com.
