Soap Sox on the Shark Tank
Stuffed Animal Soap Dispenser - Episode 603 - October 3, 2014
|"Tank" the "Shark"|
helped Soap Sox Sponges get on the
Shark Tank Show!
The 1% of stuffed animals kids can play with while taking a bath are homemade sock puppets, and the SoapSox Animal Bath Sponge . The Soap Socks Stuffed Animal's inventors Ray Phillips & Alvin Uy, will be appearing on Shark Tank Episode 603 this Friday night after a very successful Kickstarter campaign.
Anyone that's ever given a youngster a bath, knows first hand the last thing they want to do is scrub down with a bar of soap. Sure the old sock puppet trick using an old sock and a bar of soap will work with a little creativity, but in the end, its still just a sock.
Just a little over a year ago, Phillips and Uy took the sock puppet idea with finger pockets, and a soap pocket, around brand new cartoon character's, and started a campaign on Kickstarter with a $45,000.00 goal. The Soap Sox campaign successfully ended September 21, 2013, raising $52,000.00 from over 620 backers.
The really interesting part about the Soap Socks Success is both Ray and Alvin already envisioned getting on the Shark Tank Show from the very beginning.
