Chosen out of 36,000 applican’ts across America, Zipit Bedding creators, Hayley Carr and Jennifer MacDonald, will pitch to the sharks on ABCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s No. 1 hit TV show, Shark Tank, airing February 28th 1t 9:00 Ã¢â‚¬10:00 p.m. ET. There, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll face tough billionaire entrepreneurs: Marc Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec and Kevin OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Leary.
The story of Zipit Bedding began when Jennifer, a former advertising executive and mom of three, was tired of the daily struggle of getting her kids to make their beds. Then one day, while hosting a sleepover, she had an Ã¢â‚¬Å“Aha!Ã¢â‚¬ moment. In the morning she watched her youngest son simply zipping up his sleeping bag and Ã¢â‚¬Å“Voila!Ã¢â‚¬ the once messy room was clean! She quickly realized that by combining the ease, fun and simplicity of a sleeping bag, with the look and feel of stylish kidÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s bedding, she would be able to solve her problem AND finally put an end to the age-old battle between parents and their kids!
Jennifer sought the help of her sister, Hayley Carr, a businesswoman and inventor-at-heart, to develop the product. A rough sketch of a zippered comforter drawn on a napkin, countless hours of hard work, a 401K cashed in and several prototypes later, Jennifer and Hayley were finally ready to debut their Patent Pending, innovative and time-saving product to the Nation. The sisters worked with top Target and Walmart designer, Alyssa Kaplan to co-design their line of Zipit Bedding sets. The line features bright, fun and uniquely themed current prints, with reversible tops that are pre-coordinated to interchange with other Zipit Bedding sets. PLUS they all GLOW-IN-THE-DARK!
And now, the sisters are facing the sharks! Will Jennifer and Hayley take the bait? Or will they swim away and make their own fortune? Find out on tonight’s Shark Tank.
