Elizabeth Granados is the momtrepreneur behind Little Nomad, a company that sells stylish foam baby play mats. She’s pitching her business (an alternative to those garish primary colored mats) on Shark Tank (February 3). Her pitch is memorable as she asks Kevin O’Leary aka “Mr. Wonderful” to hold her baby daughter Talia while she demonstrates the product. “Uncle Wonderful” accepts the challenge and the little girl sits quietly on his lap. “She knows cash flow when she sees it,” O’Leary kids.
There are currently four Little Nomad designs to choose from (mist, dusk, feather, and petal). Prices vary according to size. A 4×6 play mat sells for $109; 6×8 $199; 8×12 $389. Single tiles are available for custom sizing ($19 each). Shark Tank airs Fridays at 9pm on ABC.
