Box Play for Kids Featured on Good Morning America | Shark Tank Your Life

Posted by

Not gonna lie...appearing on Good Morning America in front of millions of people LIVE was one of the coolest and scariest experiences of my life (as a small business owner). We were included in the Toy Edition of Shark Tank Your Life. Now that it's over, I'm still pinching myself. 

Here's the segment. Check out my groovy moves for the teaser :-)

Everyone on the set of the show, especially the producer, was super sweet and very professional. I can see why Good Morning America is the country's #1 morning show. They run a tight ship! And they have fun.

Here are some more pics from the set.

Outside in the "shark tank" filming the teaser.

Perry is a serial inventor and I really enjoyed spending the morning getting to know him. I wish him nothing but much success with the Shape Shark.

Although I didn't win Daymond John's vote. I did win the votes of all the kid-testers with four "THUMBS UP" (actually all 8 kids gave Box Play for Kids glowing reviews). And in the end, that's what matters most. Thanks kids!!!

And a BIG thank you to my killer team at Duality Public Relations. This opportunity wouldn't have happened without thier hard work.
