Oogiebear is a handheld device that allows parents to, essentially, pick their baby’s nose. If this sounds like a bizarre problem to solve, the sharks certainly didn’t think so. When Farzin polled the sharks on who had ever had to clear their baby’s nostrils with their hands, all of them responded with knowing exasperation. Farzin entered the tank seeking $400,000 for 5% equity, and — after a surprisingly vicious feeding frenzy — left with a joint deal from Barbara Corcoran and Robert Herjavec for $600,000 ($300k each) in exchange for 10% equity. Though she didn’t get the $8 million valuation she proposed, a $6 million valuation is nothing to sneeze at (via CNBC). Farzin proved to be an impressive negotiator, securing one of the most expensive deals on “Shark Tank.”
As of today, you can purchase the original Oogiebear baby booger picker on their website — it appears as though their inventory was able to withstand the aggressive bump in exposure “Shark Tank” contestants receive; commonly, websites will crash and products will vanish before preorders are processed. Farzin seems in very high spirits about her “Shark Tank” appearance, with her Instagram showing that she organized a watch party for the episode. She also posted that she’s excited to get to work with Corcoran and Herjavec, with Corcoran subsequently joking along in her comments section.
