Bibbitec Bib's on Shark Tank
The Bibbitec Bib is a bib, breastfeeding privacy, a burp cloth, changing pad, stroller blanket, an art smock and even a full body apron. The patented bib is made out of recycled poly-nylon with two unique sides. One is a thin fleece, and the other is a thin shell that repels just about anything your kids can spill. It's not a bib specifically made just for your toddler, but one with you also in mind.
There are so many uses for the Bibbitec that I found one article listing 33 new way's to use the Bibbitec throughout the day. They may have started stretching it a bit, but never the less, some excellent examples what else you can use this multi-purpose invention on.
Susie Taylor and the Bibitec Invention was just featured on "Made In America" with Diane Sawyer in September of 2012. Interesting that Susie and her husband Steve are shown in a preview of the Shark Tank before they probably knew for sure that they would be on the show. But having Diane Sawyer talking up your product on national t.v. can only be a good thing, with many more good things to follow. Susie said the orders started pouring in after the brief segment on the World News.
This is also very smart of ABC to test a new product's response before committing it to airing on the Shark Tank. Remember that the producers of the Show get a stake in the company whether they make a deal with the Sharks or not, so it's in their best interest to show inventions with the most potential. It looks like the Ultimate Bibbitec Bib has met those requirements potentially becoming a very big success story.
What's my opinion of the Bibbitec Bibs?
From almost everything that I could find, it looks like the key market they are focusing on is with the baby market. After watching her son's making brownie's in the kitchen all wearing a bibbitec bib, my opinion would be to make these mandatory in all kindergarten classrooms. Maybe even a more specialized bib/apron for painters? I have to be the messiest painter there ever was, and something made of this material just might be the answer. I'm not sure I would want to wear something referred to as a bib, even though that's exactly what I probably need.
It's a good idea with a Great Patent behind the material and design with several ways of expanding the product line. Yes, I do believe the Sharks will not let this one getaway!
