Baby Toon Shark Tank Update – Shark Tank Season 11

baby toonCassidy Crowley and her mom, Lori, pitch The Baby Toon, their soft spoon for babies and toddlers, in Shark Tank episode 1101, the season 11 premier. Cassidy invented the Baby Toon when she was seven years old. She entered the Honolulu District Science and Engineering Fair where she was instructed to identify and solve a problem.

Cassidy found her problem when she got home that day. She noticed her mother got nervous whenever Cassidy’s baby sister stuck a long, hard spoon in her mouth. This can be a choking hazard, so she thought about creating a soft spoon so he sister wouldn’t gag on it. The added benefit was her invention calmed her mother too! She called her soft spoon The Baby Toon.

The spoon is made from FDA grade soft silicon. Its short neck limits how far it can go into a baby’s mouth and the soft material is gentle on baby’s gums. It also doubles as a teething toy. When she entered her product in the Fair, she got high praise and the people and teachers involved encouraged her to make and sell her invention.

Cassidy wanted to make her product in the USA, but there were no good molding facilities in Hawaii, so she contracted with Extreme Molding in Albany, New York. Extreme Molding has a state of the art facility that makes silicon molded products to FDA standards. They make many baby products and other silicon products as well. Cassidy is committed to making her product in the USA going forward and she plans to donate (at least) $1000 of her profits to the Kapi’olani Medical Center – the hospital where she was born.

Cassidy has high hopes and philanthropic ideals for her budding business, will a Shark share her enthusiasm?
