As a mom, Ashley understands the headache that goggles can become for both parents and kids. They’re always breaking and needing to be replaced, which is why Ashley invented a new take on the product.

No Tangle Goggles For Kids

Frustrated with her kids’ goggles, she set out to create her own version without the tight rubber straps. Instead, her invention features a super, stretchy fabric band.

This band, in particular, makes it easy for kids to put on their goggles and also means that they won’t break in the process.

Splash Place Swim Goggles solves another problem, too. Regular goggles get caught and tangled in girls’ hair, but their goggles do not!

The sharks are blown away by the inventive solution of the fabric band, and a few are excited about using them with their own kids.

While there are similar products on the market, their version is patent-pending, and no other goggles use a swim-suit quality fabric band.

Their goggles also include over 25 designs in fabric and color combinations. This gives kids a way to pick designs they like or match them closely to swimsuits.

The sharks want to know more about the ladies and their story. Ashley shares devastating news that she had a son who passed away at 6 weeks old, and then shortly after, the father of her children suffered a massive brain injury.

She started a sewing business to provide for her family. During that time, her older son’s goggles broke, and she didn’t want to buy another pair, so she made her own strap and fixed them.

In terms of sales, lifetime sales are $6.1 million. The company launched in 2017, and sales in the year prior to filming were $1.75 million, and they are quite profitable as well.

Needless to say, the sharks are blown away by Ashley’s story and the success of the company.

The two ladies have managed to cover the market, selling the goggles internationally, and also on Amazon, their website, and to retailers.

They also employ 14 part-time working moms who make the goggles for them. The goggles retail for $21 and cost $3 landed to make.

Even though the brand has been so successful, it is seeking a $200,000 investment to purchase additional molds and help with some deals it is considering with big-box retailers.

Kevin O’Leary doesn’t think that the entrepreneurs actually need a shark. For that reason, he goes out.

Robert Herjavec says he will be a huge customer but looks for investment deals where he can make a bigger impact. So, he goes out next.

Lori Greiner offers the ladies $200,000 for 10% equity. Ashley counters her with 7.5%, but Lori says no, and the duo quickly accepts Lori’s original offer.
