Entrepreneurs Mike and Amy Perry arrived in the tank as the parents of 5 children and noticed a problem during diaper changes: their children’s curiosity! The baby’s hands would find their way into the mess inside the diaper and create even more needed clean-up. This led them to create a changing pad, known as SnoofyBee, to keep the baby occupied while parents do the dirty cleanup. Will the sharks dive into diaper changes with this new changing pad?

Lori Greiner then came in and offered $100,000 for 20%. The Perry’s countered Lori with $120,000 for 20%. Lori accepted the offer and they made a deal.
At the time of this SnoofyBee update, the company has expanded its product lines significantly. The Perry’s have also expanded by one more baby! In addition to changing pads, the company sells suction cup bowls to prevent unwanted spills, diaper baggy dispensers, teethers, and a product called the Brushing Buddy, designed to help parents brush their child’s teeth.
All products are available on their website. You can also find them on Amazon.
