Little Burros

Little BurrosFather daughter team Bob and Mollie Thorsen introduce the Sharks to Little Burros, their line of gardening accessories, in Shark Tank episode 1121. The Little Burro is an attachment for a wheel barrow that holds extra gardening tools, drinks and just about anything else you’d need while gardening. Bob invented the product while helping his wife in the garden. He fashioned a primitive version of the first prototype out of cardboard and duct tape to limit trips back to the garden shed for additional tools.

When he showed the contraption to his kids, they encouraged him to turn it into a real product. Bob and his family own a construction company, so they were no strangers to business. Together, the family enlisted the help of an industrial designer for Little Burros and it quickly became a hit. It won numerous design awards which caused the Thorsens to introduce the Burro Buddy, a more compact version of the original.

On a sad note, the Thorsens lost one of their daughters at the young age of 29. Becca Thorsen was an anti human trafficking activist who was a big supporter of A21, an organization dedicated to abolishing human trafficking. To honor her memory and her passion, the Thorsens donate all of Becca’s 10% share in the company to the organization.

As for the products, the original Little Burro is $52.99 and the Burro Buddy is $39.99. They are available on Amazon and at many online and retail home improvement stores like Home Depot, Lowes and ACE Hardware. After Becca’s passing, the family pulled back from the company a bit. Now, they’re re-injecting life into Little Burros and would like a Shark to help.
