Brian Kleinschmidt didn’t like potty training his kids on the padded donut seat that we all know so well. Instead, he invented a new toilet seat with a flip-up section for kids in their potty training days. What did the sharks think of this seemingly simple solution when he brought it to S
Shark Tank EZ-Pee-Z Update
- Entrepreneur: Brian Kleinschmidt
- Business: Potty training toilet seat
- Ask: $50,000 for 15% equity
- Result: No deal
- Shark: None
During his pitch, Brian tossed a padded donut seat and demonstrated how his new seat would work. The EZ-Pee-Z seat he displayed was a prototype of a product he hoped would take off, which would help children sit on the toilet a little easier.
FOR ADULT and CHILD USE: One Seat for EveryBUTTy. EZPeeZ is clean, comfortable and convenient for everyone in the family to use.
EASY TO INSTALL: Everything you need is included for a quick and easy install on your existing elongated toilet.
While the sharks asked questions, Brian tried to appeal to each of them by comparing parts of their past to his own life. It didn’t appear to work for the sharks.
Mark Cuban asked why he only had a prototype and no product. Brian explained that he wanted a patent first, but Mark says he ‘isn’t buying’ this answer and went out. Barbara Corcoran, on the other hand, liked the donut but didn’t think this would work. She went out, too.
Robert Herjavec appreciated Brian as a salesman but said he was too transparent. He also didn’t think parents would want to replace their whole toilet seat for this device, so he went out. Lori Greiner followed because the product had no proof of concept.
This left Kevin O’Leary as the only shark left. However, Kevin hated the idea and tells Brian that he should put this idea down. EZ-Pee-Z walked away without a deal.
Let’s see how things have panned out for Kevin since leaving
Unfortunately, our research for this EZ-Pee-Z update revealed some bad news. The EZ-Pee-Z website redirects to a Chinese website that seems to have nothing to do with the company, and there is no longer any social media presence for the product.
Some good news though for anyone who would like to give the EZ-Pee-Z a try! The product is available on Amazon.
We are a bit unsure where this leaves our next EZ-Pee-Z update, but we will let you know if we hear anything!
