10 Shark Tank Products To Take Your Summer To The Next Level
Over the past several season, there have been a lot of great products featured on Shark Tank that are perfect for summertime. Whether you're an outdoorsy type, or a beach bum, or a barbeque master, guaranteed there is a product here for you.
These are just ten of the best summer products, but for a full list, make sure you check out our Amazon shopping list here:
For the Beach-Goer
How did no one think of this before? Everyone has that moment when they leave their wallet or phone in their shoe at the beach when they go take a dip - is this safe?
The Aqua Vault is a small, portable safe that you can attach to your beach chair when you need to leave your valuables for a few minutes. It opens with a three-digit combination lock so there's no danger of losing the key in the water, either.
For the BBQ Master
For the quickest way to light your BBQ brickets, there's no reason to look further than Insta-Fire. This unique mixture of recycled materials and chemicals provides by far the quickest-burning mix, and will even sustain itself when floating on water. In case of emergency, it is also easy to put out, simply by smothering it - you can even smother it with more Insta-Fire!
For the Pool Party Enthusiast
Ever take your can of beer or soda into the pool and then find you have nowhere to put it? Or, god forbid, you spill it in the pool.
Well, the Bev Boy takes care of those problems with a genius little floating cup holder. Not only does it float, it has a weighted anchor on the bottom that keeps it upright at all times.
It'll leave your hands free for all the pool games you can handle.
For the Picnic Lover
Moms and dads who love picnics will need to pick themselves up a Monkey Mat. This lightweight 5' x 5' mat can be carried around in a small pouch and laid out anywhere you need it.
It is easy to clean and machine washable, and you can buy stakes for it that keep it held down if you're having a picnic on a windy mountaintop.
If you're not into picnics, it can really be used anywhere at all. You can even stick it under your kid's high chair for easy clean-up when they make a mess!
For the Beach Athlete
Spikeball is a fast and intense 2 on 2 game that's kind of a cross beween four-square and volleyball. Played by over 200,000 people, it can be setup and played quickly and easily anywhere you have a little open space.
Here's a video showing how it's played:
What's great is you can get a game going almost anywhere at anytime!
For The Health-Conscious Hydrater
Everyone knows you're supposed to drink a lot of water every day. Especially during the summer. And even more especially if you're doing anything active.
But water is so... boring!
The Define Bottle cures that complaint by allowing you to put chopped up fruits into a diffuser inside the water bottle. The flavors of the fruit seep out into the water you're drinking, giving it a lovely taste that's WAY better than plain water.
You can use lemons, berries, oranges, or any of your favorite fruits!
For the Star-Gazer
Nothing is better than driving out to a sparsely populated area, waiting til dark, then lying back and watching the stars at night. This is especially enjoyable during the summer when you don't have to bundle up to endure the nighttime air.
If you have a pickup truck, the truck provides a nice open bed for you to lie in, but it can get uncomfortable pretty quickly. The AirBedz mattress solves that problem. It's an air mattress that fills the exact dimensions of the truck bed, and even takes into the account the wheel wells, so you have a flat, comfortable bed to lie on all night long.
This would also be a great thing to take with you to a drive-in movie, or on a hunting or fishing trip.
For the Water Pistol Commando
Sometimes a water gun just isn't enough fire-power. Sometimes you need something with a little more power. That's where water balloons come in. They've been around a long time, but now you can load up your arsenals in record time, thanks to the Tie-Not.
The Tie-Not attaches to your outdoor water spigot and quickly fills, then ties off, your water balloons. No more fiddling with the opening to get it tied-off - just loop it over the Tie-Not and pull it off. Easy!
Here's a video demo that shows how easy it is:
For the Flavor Afficianado
Do you ever get tired of ketchup? Mustard? Coleslaw? Salsa? These are the standard condiments at every picnic or barbeque, but they've been around FOREVER.
Slawsa is a new kind of condiment that combines salsa and coleslaw into a new, delicious topping for burgers, sandwiches, hot dogs, and more!
It comes in several flavors such as Original, Garlic, and Fire (for extra spice!).
For the Comfort-Seeker
The Home T is a great way to stay cool and comfortable all summer long, while also showing off your home state pride!
They carry all fifty states, plus one that shows off the entire US - that one is great for if you're traveling abroad.
