Have you ever watched the reality show on ABC called Shark Tank, and wished you had come up with some of their ideas, not because you want to be a genius, you just wanna be rich of some whim? Like the 2 ladies who came up with an idea to create slip-covers for pack&play’s… BRILLIANT! Kid’s pee, poop, spit up, and spill on everything! Problem solved! Or the person who came up with a “Netflix” version of playing with toys. How many times do we see kids with toys they played with for 2 days and never touched again. Especially those overpriced learning toys. Fun and educational? Yes. But once the puzzle gets solved, the mystery in the toy is gone. Exchanging them for new stuff without spending a boatload of money? Cool idea.
Til you consider previous statement about kids peeing, pooping, ect.
The show, more often than not, gets weirdos in there who come up with the DUMBEST ideas, and expect billionaires to invest money in them. Well, these people did…just not on Shark Tank…. and somehow seem to be making money with their cooky ideas. This is proof we are a not-so-bright society. Someone buys this crap!
Antenna Balls – Get a bumper sticker. Get a customized license plate. Get a window decal. Spray-paint your car with smiley faces. Just don’t buy these. Please.
Chia Head – Chia Pet’s were dumb, but this has taken it to a whole new level of stupid. Where is the rest of this thing? Should we plant it in the ground so it looks like his body is down there somewhere? It’s no wonder kids are dying their hair green these days…
Dog Wigs – Clothing for your pet is ridiculous. But putting a wig on it makes you a complete moron. Does this animal look thrilled to you? I don’t think so.
Box of Laughter – A better option would be a book on comedic timing, or a muzzle if his jokes are THAT bad.
Personal Fireplace – kinda looks cool, right? It’s $95!! save your money…. just buy a candle. Or build a bonfire.
AND MY FAVORITE!
Pet Rocks – Don’t most kids ask for puppies? Or kittens? The basis of the idea is an advertising executive was smart enough to know people will buy anything if it has a great marketing campaign. This guy was a genius. He’s also a millionaire for essentially selling gravel from his neighbor’s driveway. (note: he didn’t really steal the rocks. I hope). It get’s better. He figured out how to market his rock into the current century. They now have a USB pet rock. I’m not kidding. Take a look…
What stupid ideas would you like to market?
Ever been the recipient of one of these crazy gift ideas? ..or heaven forbid, bought one for someone else??
