Why didn’t we think of that? Welcome to WatchMojo and today we will be counting down the Top 10 Coolest “Shark Tank” Ideas.

For this list, we’re looking at Shark Tank ideas that were picked up by one of the investors, and we’re focusing on the most interesting, memorable and useful ideas pitched.

#10: Tipsy Elves

One of the best parts of the holiday season is showing off your ugliest sweater. In the case of Tipsy Elves, founders Nick Morton and Evan Mendelsohn saw the opportunity to take this annual tradition and make a business out of it. Tipsy Elves is unique on its take in holiday apparel by appealing to the more humorous sensibilities of adults. These sweaters will no doubt make you stand out at your holiday work party. You’ll definitely be the coolest one there with clothing that incorporates a little bit of naughtiness into their designs.

#9: Ten Thirty One Productions

This production company was created for all the horror movie lovers out there. Apparently Mark Cuban is one of them, as he offered the largest investment that had even been made on the show at the time: $2 million for a 20% stake. Ten Thirty One has two amazing hayride attractions in both Los Angeles and New York that will transport you inside of a horror movie, if you’re into that kind of thing. They have developed new technologies and effects that make the experience of a haunted house even more realistic. The ability to make a fantasy a reality is an incredible innovation, even if it is a little spooky.

#8: Red Dress Boutique

Formal wear, shoes, swimwear and more that’s both fashionable and affordable? It may sound too good to be true but entrepreneur Diana Harbour sought to make this dream a possibility. Harbour took her love of fashion that she developed as a college student and turned it into something more. If you want to be dressed to the nines at all times without hurting your wallet look to Red Dress Boutique first. The coolest part of Harbour’s business is that you can find many of today’s trendier items that you wouldn’t normally want to invest in at a super reasonable price.

#7: Wicked Good Cupcakes

Just when you thought you couldn’t innovate cupcakes, mother/daughter duo Tracy Noonan and Danielle Descroches decided to put them in a jar and offer them by mail. Wicked Good Cupcakes is an apt name for the company, as their cuteness is only matched by their delicious taste. Cupcake flavors range from the traditional to the quirky, like their famous unicorn cupcake. The brick and mortar bakery is located in Cohasset, Massachusetts but no worries if you’re not close by; the cupcakes ship to every state! Kevin O’Leary thought the idea was so sweet that he invested $75K into the bakery.

#6: Buggy Beds

What an adorable name for a product that protects against the nastiest of pests. Buggy Beds is an innovative and extremely helpful product that detects bed bugs at first sign and lures them into a deadly glue trap. These bed bug monitors are a great asset for any home or store owner, and are so fantastic because they run at under $20 a pack, making them accessible for anyone. And in fact, people are using them worldwide, with Buggy Beds being sold in 23 countries!

#5: Bubba's Q BBQ

Al “Bubba” Baker is a former NFL player who has not only received accolades for his athleticism but also for his delicious cooking. Bubba displayed his love of barbeque at his restaurant Bubba’s Q and made his way onto “Shark Tank” where Daymond John invested in the concept of a "De-Boned Baby Back Rib Steak". Since the initial investment Baker has grown his restaurant into a barbeque empire, and expanded his company into a line of delicious dry rubs and sauces, as well as juicy boneless ribs, all available for order online. Authentic barbeque delivered to your front step is a pretty genius idea in our opinion.

#4: Simple Sugars

Lani Lazzari is such a brilliant entrepreneur that she had the idea for Simple Sugars when she was only 11! Simple Sugars is a line of all natural beauty and skincare products that was created when Lazzari was experimenting with ways to treat her eczema. There was simply nothing on the market that could treat her uncomfortable skin issues, so she decided to make her own product, and Simple Sugars was born. Simple Sugars is proven effective on the most sensitive of skin, as well as treating issues such as eczema and psoriasis. Of course, the fact that they come I delicious “flavors” like chocolate and maple doesn’t hurt either.

#3: Squatty Potty

Frustrated by your bathroom habits? Why not invest in the Squatty Potty! The Squatty Potty is an ingenious product which promises a more natural bathroom experience. The inventors were inspired to create this toilet stool by their passion for living their healthiest lives. And as everyone knows, poop habits are an important part of a healthy life. This device is ergonomically designed and proven effective, and when not in use its design allows it to stay discreetly behind your toilet. We guarantee this little stool will leave you flush with happiness

#2: Groovebook

A picture is worth a thousand words, or in this case millions of dollars. Subscription services are a dime a dozen these days, but these creators wanted to take a sentimental spin on the premise. They feared that physical photos were losing their luster compared with their digital counterparts so they made a photo book much more appealing to younger users. Subscribers to the Groovebook app can receive up to 100 of their favorite photos a month in an adorable booklet with a groovy design. Photo giant Shutterfly thought Groovebook was so cool that they bought the company out for $14.5 million!

Before we reveal our top pick, here are some honorable mentions:

Bottle Breacher



#1: Scrub Daddy

Don’t let the smiling face fool you, this sponge is tough on grime! Entrepreneur Aaron Krause brought his idea for a scratch free, reusable sponge to the tank back in season 4, and scored a deal with the Queen of QVC, Lori Greiner. Scrub daddy is so rigorous on stains you will have no need for any other sponge in your life. And whereas many tough sponges leave a scratchy service, Scrub Daddy leaves it smooth. And for a pretty low price, who wouldn’t want one of these in their lives?
