10 Shark Tank Products to Watch This Black Friday Weekend
Black Friday, Small-Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday are all back-to-back starting on the 25th of November this year... which also happens to be exactly one month before Christmas! How perfect is that?
I've gone ahead and found ten products that are almost always offered at a discount on Amazon. I predict they will be heavily discounted this weekend, but I can't absolutely guarantee it!
This is a great gift for a fitness fanatic! If you don't remember, the Simply Fit Board is a simple plastic board with a curved bottom that you balance and twist on. It provides a very simple but highly effective core workout that you can do anywhere without any complicated equipment. They claim it does wonders for belly fat and the dreaded "muffin-top", but it's also great for posture and balance.
The Simply Fit Board got an investment from Lori.
Here's a video demonstrating how you use it:
Fizzics makes a terrific gift for anyone who loves and appreciates good beer. This machine allows you to enjoy the fresh, rich, creamy taste of a draft beer right from your own home. You can use any can, bottle, or growler of beer that you bought at the store, and the Fizzics machine will output a beer that's as good on the first sip as it is on the last.
They use a patented engineering process within the Fizzics machine to create a "microfoam" that releases the true aroma of the beer, and gives it a creamy texture - just like a pour straight from the draft.
Here's a video demonstrating the Fizzics system (warning: may cause a thirst for beer!):
What's the saying? Give a man a fish he'll eat for the day; teach a man to fish he'll eat for a lifetime. Well, with The Fish Call it seems like you might not even have to TEACH the man anything! He can simply cast this electronic device in the water near where he wants to fish, and a wide variety of fish will come a-callin' - all he has to do is cast his line out near The Fish Call.
The Fish Call produces vibrations and sounds that many fish species find irresistable. It will apparently work to bring in: Bass, Red Fish, Stripers, Crappie, Trout, Drum, Snook, Flounder, Catfish, BlueGill and MANY other predator species.
The Fish Call got an investment from Robert.

Know anyone with a newborn? Or someone who's expecting? The Milk Snob will make a unique and exciting gift for them. This simple and innovative product (which got an investment from Lori) makes it easy and convenient to keep your baby protected from harsh sunlight, wind, rain, and nosy on-lookers.
The light, breathable, stretchy fabric can cover a stroller or car seat, and can also act as a 360-degree visibility shield when breast-feeding. It's a simple and cost-effective way to make sure your baby is protected when you're out and about.
Who doesn't like to get relief from tension and knots in their back? We all like to get massages, but sometimes only YOU know where "that spot" is. The Q-Flex is a tool that allows you to give yourself a massage in those tense, knotty, hard to reach spots on your back.
The Q-Flex is ergonomically designed so you can hold it and apply the correct amount of accupressure without straining your arms or shoulders. Once you start working a particular spot, blood will begin to flow into that area and will quickly alleviate the pain.
The Q-Flex can be easily used on the back, shoulders, arms, legs, or the soles of your feet.
Check out this helpful video that demonstrates how the Q-Flex is used:
The Drop Stop is one of those inventions that makes you slap your forehead and ask "Why didn't I think of that?" This potentially life-saving device (with an investment from Lori) inserts a fabric cover between your car seat and the center console, which means you don't have to worry about your cell phone, wallet, or french fries suddenly slipping into that crack and distracting you from the road.
The neoprene cover can stretch to accomodate almost any vehicle's dimensions, so it's a universal fix for almost everyone. The box comes with one Drop Stop for the driver's side and one for the passenger side, plus a non-slip grip pad you can use on the dashboard or the center console to stop anything from slipping off them to begin with.
This is a great, inexpensive gift for anyone with a car!
Check out the highly entertaining original infomercial (produced by Lori) for a lot more fun and detail:
Here's another product for people with back-pain problems. We spend a lot of time sitting - too much, according to many scientific studies - and, to make it worse, almost everyone has terrible posture! This can lead to all kinds of medical issues like chronic back pain, depression, circulation issues, and weight gain. This simple device (with an investment from Lori) allows you to sit straight and tall anywhere, anytime.
The BetterBack is a light-weight, portable system of straps that you only need to adjust once. After that, you just slip it over your knees and behind your lower back, and you'll be sitting with perfect posture - effortlessly!
Here's a video showing you exactly how easy it is to use, and why it's so critical for our body's long-term health:
Revolights is a higher-ticket item, for sure (about $200), but if you want to show some holidy gift-giving love to the bicycle enthusiast in your life, this tool will absolutely WOWW them.
Revolights attach to your bike's wheels and provide a headlight, break-light, blinkers, and a 360-degree light field for safe and worry-free nighttime bike-riding. The newest version also integrates with your smart phone, showing you current weather, battery life, and useful data such as your speed and miles traveled.
Revolights came away from the Tank with an investment from Robert.
This video demonstrates all the amazing features of Revolights and why it's such a critical and exciting tool for bicycle enthusiasts:
Some people have impulse-control problems. Is that you? Or someone you know? The Kitchen Safe is an impulse-control tool that locks away your most-desired indulgences for whatever period of time you choose, and only unlocks itself when that time is up.
It makes a useful tool for parents, especially, since they won't be tempted to give in to their kids' demands. If the game controller or the cookies are locked in the Kitchen Safe for the next three hours... well, there's nothing the parent or child can do about it until those three hours are up!
Here's a video demonstrating how easy it is to use and how useful it can be:
Last but not least, what holiday-themed Shark Tank list would be complete without mentioning the Tipsy Elves sweaters? These unique, "ugly" holiday sweaters are a BIG seller around this time of year for the simple reason that they are fun, inexpensive, and make great gifts.
Tipsy Elves got an investment from Robert after they appeared in the Tank in Season 5. Since then they've blown-up and now have a virtual empire of ugly sweaters, as well as other ugly apparel for the other seasons of the year as well.
If you know someone who's always the life of the party (or something who thinks they are), you won't go wrong with a Tipsy Elves sweater :)
