Fidgetland

fidgetlandJason Burns hopes to fidget his way to a deal with a Shark for Fidgetland, his line of fidget toys, in Shark Tank episode 906. Burns began creating his “fidgets” to help him cope with his own ADD. He constantly had something twirling in his hands to help him dispel excess energy. When he started making his own custom fidget toys, he began selling them on a website called Fidget Man.

People with kids who have ADHD, Autism, ASD, learning disabilities, anxiety, nail biting, hair twirling and other disorders began writing him saying what a big help the Fidgetland fidgets were. He even heard from adults who used them to quit smoking! What started as a way to calm himself actually became a business that helps people.

Fidget toys got a lot of press in 2017 due to the popularity of fidget spinners. Fidgetland fidgets are mostly groups of interlocking rings that you twirl through your fingers. The one exception is the “Chaney” fidget, which looks like a bike chain. At $12-$15 each, they're an inexpensive way to keep those hands busy when you feel like fidgeting. Burns likely wants a Shark's help getting broader distribution. Will a Shark join in on the fidget craze?

Fidgetland Shark Tank Recap

Barbara offers $50,000 for 20% and says she's the right partner. Barbara struggles with dyslexia, as does her son. She has a special place in her heart for things that help people with learning disabilities. This, she claims, makes her a better partner.

After some back and forth, Jason accepts Barbara's offer.

RESULT: Deal with Barbara for $50K for 20% equity.
