In the first season of Shark Tank, architect Mark Burginger pitched his bendable, construction toy product, Qubits, on the show. What’s unique about Qubits is its flexibility. Unlike Legos and Erector Sets, with Qubits, kids can create curved shapes because Qubits can bend. On Shark Tank, Burginger asked for $90,000 for 51 percent. Investor Robert Herjavec didn’t understand why Burginger wanted to give up control of his company but Daymond John bit. He gave Burginger what he asked for contingent on Qubits making a deal with a major toy company. (A deal never happened.)
There are still three Qubits products available for purchase: the Sample Kit ($10), the Travel Kit ($25) and the Rainbow Kit ($55). All three are available on the Qubits website and on Amazon -- here is the 84 Piece Qubits Rainbow Kit for $44.95.
