Buckle Me Baby

buckle me babyDahlia Rizk hopes to secure an investment for Buckle Me Baby, her line of coats for kids that fit into car seats, in Shark Tank Episode 1207.  As a New Hampshire mom, Dahlia knows about cold winters. She also knows the puffy winter coats kids wear create both a hassle and a safety hazard when buckling kids into cars seats. Traditional winter coats don’t provide a snug fit in a car seat and kids have been thrown from their seats because of it.

The Buckle Me Baby coat has heavier insulation in the front. There’s also a flap in front you pull aside to snugly buckle your child into his or her seat as if they were wearing no coat at all. Once the kid is buckled in, flip the flap back over and the child is safe and warm in their car seat.

Dahlia got the business going with a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $6,088 back in March 2017. Now she’s selling on Amazon and her website. She’s so concerned about child safety, she’ll ship a coat for just 25% down with no credit check. The company also offers a $20 coupon when you trade up from a “gently used” Buckle Me Baby Coat to a new one. She also donates the used coats to a variety of area children’s charities.

This mom with a mission wants to see every cold weather climate child in her coats. To do that, she needs broader distribution. She’s hoping a Shark can help with that.
