coming to the Shark Tank
Creating the next "big thing" by taking an already successfully proven invention and making it better has created countless millionaires around the world. As the saying goes "if you want to become a millionaire just create a better mousetrap" is as true today as it ever was. The Yubo Custom Lunch Box inventors Paul & Cyndi Pedrazzi and Dan Harden has not only created a better mousetrap, they are redefining how ALL mousetraps (lunchboxes) will function in the future.
This is kind of an interesting story and something I never thought about until now. My Mom packed my Brothers and I lunches for school for the majority of our early school years. I do remember having a few old metal lunchboxes and clearly remember the Lone Ranger one as my favorite one. But I also remember a lot of lunches inside a paper bag and those squishy peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I was embarrassed just to eat.
Fast forward to when I had my own kids and raising them as a single parent, I honestly don't ever remember making them a lunch for school. The memories of squashed food or a ripe piece of fruit still inside my lunch box from the day (or weekend) before was something I never even considered putting my own kids through. Have you ever tried getting the smell of rotting food out of a metal lunchbox before? This may explain why we were sent to school with a bag lunch so often because cleaning out our lunchboxes after school was never high on our priority.
Now had a Lunchbox like the Yubo already been invented that's addressed every conceivable negative and turned into a positive, none of those problems would even exist. The Yubo Lunchbox really is "the better mousetrap" with so many upgrades I'm not sure where to start. Buying a product you're kids really like and want to take to school is probably the most important and with Yubo's customizable face plates this is already a Big Plus. Now take into consideration the entire lunchbox can easily be taken apart and put into the dishwasher gets rid of the #1 problem with most lunchboxes on the market. Adding customized containers that perfectly fit inside the Yubo is a good idea but adding a custom built ice pack to keep your food fresh is a Great Idea and comes standard in all deluxe lunch boxes. Last but not least the Yubo is 100% Environmentally Friendly making plastic sandwich bags and aluminum foil obsolete while packing any lunch imaginable. Add this all up and you have a product that's destined to change the entire lunchbox market as we know it today.

Yubo Lunchbox Review before the Shark Tank Update:
Paul and Cyndi Pedrazzi first conceived the Yubo Lunchbox idea back in 2007 and knew they were on to something big when Dan Harden the President and Chief Designer of Whipsaw seen the potential and decided to join forces. It didn't take long for several celebrities including Jennifer Garner and Jessica Alba to publicly endorse these Eco-Friendly lunchboxes which had led to world-wide publicity in television and in print. Today the Yubo Lunchboxes are already available in dozens of retailers around the world and even on Amazon with 164 results for Yubo with 4 out of 5 Star reviews. The average cost is around $29.00 with the deluxe custom models costing $39 each.
For a brand new product trying to change an entire market for the better and bring in a level of customization never seen before, the Yubo has a huge opportunity to take a big bite out of this multimillion dollar market. This is the type of business/ product the Sharks really love to invest in if the valuation is in line. Considering all the Angel Investors on Shark Tank episode 511, this sure seems to have Lori Greiner written all over it because of her connection with QVC and the ability to demonstrate the product which would further enhance its value. On the other hand, it's easy to see some of the other Shark Tank Investors having bigger plans to take the Yubo to a much higher level.
This should be a very exciting set of negotiations when we find out how lucrative the Yubo Lunch Boxes have already become as they transform the Lunch Boxes to the 21st Century.

Oh yes I almost forgot to add my 2 cents whenever I have 2 cents to add. Considering the face plates easily come off, I wonder how a line of collectible faceplate's where kids are encouraged to trade would be a viable concept. The only way they could play this soon-to-be invented game is first they will need their own Yubo Lunchbox. I know it's thinking even farther outside the box, but its one way to have kids specifically asking their parents for a new customized lunchbox.
Maybe something simular to a Yugio card game but with "limited edition" customized faceplate's to play this ongoing game during lunch break? Just a thought...
