Plufl's $499 dog bed for humans puts off 'Shark Tank' fans despite bagging $200K deal: 'I can just get in my bed'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Plufl's founders Yuki Kinoshita and Noah Silverman, may have convinced Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner about the efficiency of their $499 worth dog bed for humans, but 'Shark Tank' fans are still skeptical about it.
Yuki and Noah stepped into the tank seeking $200,000 for their dog bed for human business Plufl. The duo demonstrated how the Plufl beds make napping a relaxing experience for not only neurotypical individuals but also people with sensory issues or anxiety, and stress disorders. Guest Shark Emma Grede was almost immediately put off by the pitch and immediately backed off after questioning who would purchase the product and also wondering about the massive space that the Plufl would occupy in a room. Despite Emma's skepticism, Kevin O'Leary rolled out an offer but demanded higher equity of 30% for his $200K investment. Lori reminded Mark about their joint Hug Sleep deal which had a similar theme and was doing phenomenally well for them. So Mark and Lori decided to team up and offered a deal of $200K for a 20% equity stake in the brand.
Yuki and Noah excitedly accepted the offer and left the tank feeling incredibly proud of themselves for getting two Sharks onboard. Despite Lori and Mark co-signing the efficiency and value of Plufl, 'Shark Tank' fans were still left feeling skeptical;. While echoing Emma's concerns, the fans also pointed out the hefty $499 price tag of the dog bed for humans as a major turn-off. A fan tweeted, "$399 I’ll continue to take naps on the couch! #SharkTank." "Also, who has space for this? #SharkTank," questioned a fan. "$400?? Dog bed better provide a happy ending for that price. #SharkTank," commented an amused fan. "#SharkTank Time to relax & swim w/the sharks. Not into this first presentation though, $300 to nap in a dog bed for humans? Not when I can just get in my bed or my fluffy couch! Mark & Robert had a good point though - kids!" pointed out a fan.

Another fan shared, "I have something similar to that! It's a... Umm... What do you call it... Oh yeah... A bed!" "Isn't a giant dog bed is called a futon?" wondered a fan. "Almost $400? I'm out. #SharkTank," declared a fan. "Dog bed… for humans? I’m out #SharkTank," seconded a fan.
