Treasure Chest Pets Update

  • Entrepreneur: Lisa Lloyd
  • Business: Plush toys with hidden compartments
  • Ask: $150,000 for 20% equity
  • Result: $150,000 for 60%
  • Shark: Barbara Corcoran and Daymond John

Lisa Lloyd entered Shark Tank Season 1 and did a stand-out presentation representing her company, Treasure Chest Pets. She was looking for further investment capital to have cash flow and get all her orders sorted. Lisa was also planning to break into national retail stores.

The sharks wanted to know about numbers. Lisa told them that the stuffed animals retailed at $19.99 each, and cost $4.75 to make. She’d also had about $100,000 in sales, with a major focus on boutique stores due to her lack of capital.

Kevin O’Leary said toys had big distribution problems, so he was the first shark to drop out. Kevin Harrington went out next because he felt the toys were too niche and seasonal. 

Barbara Corcoran was the first to put an offer on the table, but stated she would only front $50,000 and would require 50% of the company. Daymond John said he’d join the offer but wanted to increase the stake even more. He offered Lisa $100,000 to go with Barbara’s $50,000, at a 60% stake.

Robert Herjavec was bothered the amount of equity that Daymond and Barbara asked for and offered Lisa a loan of $150,000 with no equity.

In the end, Lisa decided to accept Daymond and Barbara’s offer! She left Shark Tank Season 1 with a deal but what do you think happened after that? Keep reading our Treasure Chest Pets update to find out!

We have sad news to share in our Treasure Chest Pets update. Unfortunately, the deal with Barbara was never finalized.

While Daymond did leverage some of his equity, Treasure Chest Pets ended up going out of business due to the highly competitive market.

This will be our final Treasure Chest Pets update.
