Pick-Up Bricks Shark Tank Update (Season 15)

Pick-Up Bricks is a vacuum product that helps in quickly collecting brick toys. This business was started by brother-in-law and sister team Steve Weinstock and Aurora Weinstock. Aurora came up with the idea of ​​this vacuum product after suffering foot injuries from leg bricks thrown by her children.

After the product idea, Aurora started working on the prototype and after 4 years of hard work, the world’s first kid-safe Pick-Up Bricks vacuum was ready.

Many children play with LEGO bricks and after the game is over, every brick is found lying on the ground, which has a high chance of foot injury. This vacuum product has been brought into the market to prevent foot injuries caused by brick toys and to increase the curiosity of children.

The video of this vacuum product went viral on the social media platform TikTok in January 2023. Apart from this, it was also featured in Today Show and other media. After this, the sales of the product got boosted.

To expand their business, Steve and Aurora appeared on Shark Tank Season 15 Episode 8 and asked the Sharks for $200,000 for 10% equity. After some negotiations, Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner invested $200,000 in the business for 16% equity.
