The Best of Shark Tank for Families

I’m not usually a fan of reality TV, I prefer my dramas. So when my husband and I sit down to watch television together we have to find a compromise. We tend to land on those encouraging realities shows – things like Undercover Boss, Biggest Loser and our favorite of all time, Shark Tank!

Over the seasons we’ve fallen in love with some of the featured entrepreneurs and their products. Today, I thought it would be fun to share my top picks from the tank …

moccasinsFreshly Picked

My son has a pair of darling Freshly Picked moccs – he actually had them before the Shark Tank debut so I was extremely excited to see Freshly Picked get a deal just last month! These moccasins are the most divine early walker shoes, I can’t recommend them enough.

We’ve all battled medicine dispensing so when I saw Ava arrive on the sickness scene I couldn’t have been happier! How genius!


This is one of those products where I shake my head and think, “Why didn’t I think of this?” — a weighted straw that anchors in the liquid helping children learn to drink without the frustration or mess. Amen!

nut butterWild Friends Food

I’ve been munching on the Coconut Chocolate Peanut Butter this week and can’t get enough … it’s on my food bucket list to try all of the six flavors. These spreads are so delicious and way healthier than the mainstream nut butters. Take a peek at their recipe page – you’ll drool!

EcoNuts didn’t get a deal 🙁 But that doesn’t make them a bad product! Read more about this ultra green way of doing laundry, perfect for families and cloth diapers.

I have a product at home that is trying to get on the show Shark Tank. It is amazing and I am not sure how my husband and I would have ever survived without it. It is called the Twin Z Pillow. It blows the greatly overrated My Breast Friend Pillow for twins out of the water. It can be used for breast feeding, bottle feeding, tummy time, assisted sitting and a great pillow to cuddle even. It is a lifesaver for any parent of multiples and I hope they can get on the show so more parents can learn… Read more »

So many great products! Hot Tot Children’s Hair products would love to be considered for a future feature, as we have been keeping kids looking great for nearly three years 🙂 (and got a deal on Season 4!)

Coverplay developed an ingenious idea for pack n plays. Slip covers! I discovered one at a hotel we stayed at on vacation and was fascinated and grateful and did some research.

Our sales are expected to top five million dollars this year because families recognize healthy can be as tasty as sugared treats.


Great list!!! SwimZip UPF swimwear would love to be included next time! :).
