It's an exciting day in Lollaland! Lollaland Straw Sippy Cup in Select - lollaland

It's an exciting day in Lollaland! Lollaland Straw Sippy Cup in Select Target Stores (Shark Tank)

Before having children and launching Lollaland, I used to be a high school chemistry teacher.  My students would often ask, “Why do I need to learn this?  I will never use stoichiometry in real life.”  My response was, “Learning to problem solve will be invaluable in all your future endeavors.”  It’s true that most people will never use stoichiometry outside of their high school chemistry classrooms, but life is full of “reactions” that could use some careful study and analysis.

Launching a business and running a company requires the most critical thinking and problem solving I’ve ever done.  Thanks to Shark Tank and our amazing partners, Mark Cuban and Robert Herjavec, we have had many unique and rare opportunities (one of which will be featured on tonight’s season premiere of Shark Tank, Season 6)!  Partnering with Mark and Robert has been a great experience for us, and Lollaland has experienced steady growth since Lollacup's launch in 2011.  This year, we were presented with one of our most exciting, but challenging opportunities – mass retail!

Lollaland + Target - A Special Shark Tank EndCap

Lollaland + Target - A Special Shark Tank EndCap

When our episode of Shark Tank aired in April, 2012, the most common request/comment we received was, “ I LOVE that Lollacup is 100% made in the USA, BUT I wish it were more affordable.” To answer this call, we developed a more affordable cup for this new Shark Tank/Target program.  This new cup is called the Lollaland Straw Sippy Cup, and details and differences between the two cups are outlined below. Lollacup vs. Lollaland Straw Sippy Cup - Lollacup vs. Lollaland Straw Sippy Cup - Made in USA vs. Made in Taiwan - Iconic Lollacup Bird Design vs. Bear - Distinctive triangular packaging vs. more traditional box with a window The Lollacup will always be 100% Made in the USA, but we hope that the Lollaland Straw Sippy Cup will make our products more accessible for all.  Thank you for your continued support.

Mark + Hanna Lim | Lollaland Here’s a little snippet about tonight's season premiere of Shark Tank, Season 6 (source: ABC.com):  There will be an All Stars Update where Mark Cuban and Barbara Corcoran illustrate the power of Shark Tank.

They sealed a deal to sell six of their Shark Tank products in a special display at a major retail store.

The entrepreneurs from Lollaland, Kisstixx, Monkey Mat, Kazam, U-lace, and Ry’s Ruffery are thrilled to see their products on Target’s shelves for the first time.

Before their deals on Shark Tank, the combined value of the entrepreneurs’ products equaled $1.3 million dollars in sales.

Today, that value has increased to $7.7 million dollars, a 500% increase.

I have been trying to find these in stores since October and have not been able to. These are great! I ordered 4 of them last year and need more. I was trying to not have to pay shipping and get them without having to wait.
Thanks
