Space Traveler

space travelerSpace Traveler inventors Krissy Pruske and Rachel Lincoln are lifelong friends who turned to entrepreneurship after both moving to San Antonio, Texas. Both moms, they collaborated on ideas to make life easier on families with kids. Their first product was Sleepyheadz, a “nap mat and pillow,” which they launched in 2013.

Before a cross country trip with her family in 2018, Krissy was brainstorming ideas on how to keep her kids from fighting in the back of the family minivan. She decided to create their own little spaces with collapsable laundry hampers. The hampers worked OK, but on the next trip, she used collapsible dog kennels. This worked very well and provided the impetus for the first prototype of Space Traveler.

Space Traveler is like a mini tent for a single child in a car. It separates the kids physically, creating their own personal environment. Inside there are pockets for snacks and electronics. Each unit fits  on any standard car seat and most child car seats. They collapse and fit in a tote bag for easy transport and storage, too.

Krissy and Rachel just designed their first prototypes in 2018 before making the cut on Shark Tank. They haven’t produced any product yet, but they’re taking pre-orders on their website. It’s regularly priced at $39.95, but they have a “Shark Tank Special” at $29.95. Since they really aren’t selling any product yet, they need a Shark’s cash to get their business up and running from ground zero. Will a Shark help this start-up travel in the kids’ accessory space?

Space Traveler Shark Tank Recap

Krissy and Rachel will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran 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 they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Space Traveler will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
