Logan Riley wants to rock the Shark Tank when he pitches RokBlok, a portable record player, in episode 910, the Shark Tank Holiday special. RokBlok is a block that rides on a flat vinyl record and plays the music like a real record player. It has a rechargeable battery and bluetooth connectivity for speakers or headphones; there's a built-in speaker too.
The product was designed by Riley's one man design firm, Pink Donut. The firm designs “things that we love and want to share with others.” Riley is a music buff with a big record collection and he wanted to share his invention with others. Apparently, there were many others who wanted the product: Riley raised $351,816 in just a few days in a successful Kickstarter campaign back in December 2016.
As of October 2017, no product was shipped, but Riley was getting close. On November 30, 2017, the company announced it would ship in time for Christmas. Once the Kickstarter orders ship, he hopes to sell them for $99. Riley likely needs a Shark to help with the trials and tribulations of manufacturing.Will a Shark want to rock this block?

RokBlok Shark Tank Recap
Logan will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. He'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but she’ll need to show them SHE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards."
