Flipzles - Shark Tank Contender?

Get on the Shark Tank Show
 So what's it take to get on the Shark Tank Show? Is your idea good enough to get past the producers and get in front of the Sharks? There is a lot of very good ideas and unique inventions I run into on a daily basis and every once in a while one screams out that this needs to be on the Shark Tank Show.

I actually found Flipzles thanks to a comment that Vicki made on the "How To get On the Shark Tank Show" article. After reading her comment I just had to find out what a Flipzel is and why she doesn't think her product might not be good enough for the Sharks. Boy was I surprised.

What Is A  Flipzles?

You know it's actually kind of hard to explain to tell you the truth. In Vicki's own words
 on the Flipzles Website:
"Several years ago, I was inspired by a wooden jigsaw puzzle my mother-in-law makes with the pieces facing out. I thought it would be more fun if both sides of the pieces were painted, so I designed a puzzle for my children. I hand painted the outside as the front of a house, underneath as the rooms inside, and then the backs of the pieces as characters and objects to be played with in the house setting. My kids loved playing with the puzzle and so did their friends. My family and friends encouraged me to make more."

cool invention
Who would of ever thought to make a sturdy enough puzzle that the pieces could also be played with within the theme of the puzzle. Got that? Me neither, but it's easy to see just about any kid playing (and learning) with the Flipzles for many hours at at time. It's a great creative toy that has many possibilities. There is currently 4 Flipzles now available. The House puzzle, the Pirate Ship puzzle, the Rescue Station puzzle and the Castle puzzle.  This is just the beginning. I can think of a dozen different new themes just off the top of my head. A School House Flipzles to get your kid's prepared for their  first day. How about a World or State Flipzles to learn geography? Any positive lesson you want to teach your child could be made into an interactive Flipzles to reinforce the main message while they are playing and using their imagination.

In Vicki's comment She also wrote " I feel like you have to know someone or get very lucky".

While that statement may be true in some things, I really do not believe that to be the case for getting on the Shark Tank. She has a very unique, one of a kind invention that most definitely stands out from any competition. Her website is professionally done and she is taking orders online and sending out product. I have no clue what the numbers look like but this is a scalable business in a multi-billion dollar market with Lot's of room to expand.  She just needs that push to get over the top and make it a huge success.

The only question is will you let the fear of rejection get in your way of success? Fear is a powerful motivator that can easily build walls around you if you let it. But if you take that feeling and use it as a positive motivator, You Can Accomplish ANYTHING including getting on the Shark Tank Show. Take that same feeling and consciously make the fear of failure more powerful then the fear of rejection. "You Never Know Until You Try - Until You Try You Will Never Know". If they reject you SO WHAT at least you tried and will continue to try until you are successful.
Failure is NOT AN OPTION!

So what about you? Do you have a business idea or invention that you would like to be seen on The Shark Tank? Have you already applied? If not, Why Not? Whats stopping you from taking it to the next level that potentially could change your financial life forever? Have you already been turned down? Will you try again next year?
 Who knows, one of the Sharks may read about it here or on Twitter (we constantly follow all of them) and you may even get a personal invite from the Show.

Is your invention a Shark Tank contender? If so, we'd love to hear about it and maybe get some feedback from our readers.

Check Out The Flipzles Website and see if you think it has what it takes to be successful on the Shark Tank Show.


  1. Wow just seeing this today :)
    Thanks for the shout out. Every time I watch Shark Tank I learn something -- It is like my small business homework that is actually super fun. People tell me all the time that I should try to get on the show - Don't worry, I haven't given up -- I keep sending application emails :)

  2. I love flipzles and think they have what it takes! I have all four for my kids and have recommended them as gifts to others. Vicki is awesome at replying to questions and her customer service is unmatched in my opinion.
