Tyler brought Plop Star to
Look, when you gotta go, you gotta go. So wherever you are, use Plop Star. Just drop one tablet in the bowl BEFORE your performance. Plop Star blocks bathroom odors before they start with a buffer of essential oils. It leaves a hint of citrus scent behind, and nothing else. It's perfect for home, the office, or any situation.
Lori Greiner actually loves the product and states it may go along nicely with her other bathroom investments, such as The Squatty Potty. She is eager to hear more, especially about sales.
Tyler is seeking to break into the market that is already defined by bathroom sprays and other products. His Plop Star poop tablet is created from the same process that makes bath bombs and is a more convenient take on the heavy, leaky spray bottles of his competitors.
Basically, once the tablet is plopped into the toilet it begins to dissolve instantly. It then releases a combination of essential oils, which mask any foul smells.
A 6-pack of the tablets retails for $4.99, and a 30-pack of tablets retails for $12.99. However, at the time of filming, lifetime sales are only $12,000.
Unfortunately, he had a hard time pitching the product to the sharks. Though it smells nice, there’s nothing that really sets this company apart from some of the giants in the same market.
Mark Cuban is out immediately because he doesn’t like the concept.
Barbara Corcoran doesn’t believe that there’s a demand for Tyler’s product, so she is also out.
Kevin O’Leary has an issue with the valuation, especially after Tyler shares his sales. Kevin actually tells Tyler to flush the product down the toilet, because he doesn’t see it going anywhere.
Lori says there’s too much competition in this market. Because she doesn’t think it’s investable, she is the next shark to go out.
Guest shark Rohan Oza actually loves the product, despite the lack of excitement from other sharks. However, he doesn’t believe that Tyler has a plan to bring the product to market, so he is out too.
This means that Tyler has to leave
We have good news to report in our Plop Star update. Despite a several years-long hiatus, Plop Star is still in business and has grown from $12,000 in lifetime sales to $1.3 million!
The company has also expanded its product line to include a Plop Star Toilet spray, in addition to the toilet tablets. They can be purchased on the Plop Star website and on Amazon.
As far as reviews go, they are mostly positive for the tablets, however, the spray reviews tend not to be. Additionally, Tyler has upped the price a bit for the tablets and it seems that customers don’t mind paying a little extra.
It’s great to see that things are going well for Tyler, hopefully, they will continue! If we get any more news on a Plop Star update, we will let you know!
