A simple idea that changed a child's life forever

When Ray Phillips worked as a Program Director for a residential treatment facility for children who have experienced trauma, Ray found that the most difficult time of the day was bath time. Children would argue, cry, and even attempt to hide to avoid taking a bath.

 

After staff at the agency struggled with one child who could not part with his stuffed animal to bathe, Ray came up with the idea of taking another stuffed animal and modifying it to hold soap. After giving the child the modified stuffed animal, the child took a bath without issue and unknowingly SoapSox® was born. 

 

Ray quickly recognized the same dilemma surrounding bath time in homes and was shocked to find no such product on the market. Thus begun the exciting rise of SoapSox®.

Every parent knows the struggles of bath time...

The most difficult time of the day for a parent is bath time -- kids can be scared or reluctant to bathe; and while some kids love the water, they don't want to wash themselves. There are bath toys that incentivize kids to get in the tub, but they have no functionality and often only act as a distraction rather than a method of helping clean. And worse, in a matter of days or weeks, these bath toys grow mold. There isn't anything on the market that provides a fun, functional and safe way to help kids bathe. 

The next generation of washcloths for kids

Founder, Ray Phillips, came up with SoapSox® as a way to make bath time more fun for kids and easier for parents. SoapSox® is specifically designed to hold soap in a cavity in the center of each cute, fun character. Kids can "feed" SoapSox® liquid or bar soap during bath time, which helps facilitate hygiene through play. SoapSox® are designed with built-in finger pockets for better scrubbing and are machine washable and dryer safe, ensuring bath time is a breeze from beginning to end. 


SoapSox® is an authentic product story differentiating us from the competition. We connect emotionally with parents by creating products that encourage bonding and lifetime habits. SoapSox was conceived to help create a safe space for kids. When shopping for products, 50% of millennial parents say they try to buy products that support a good cause.

Wanted by both the Sharks and Disney

From a $1M buyout offering from the sharks on Shark Tank to a licensing agreement with Disney® and partnership with the Honest Co, we have quickly become a household brand in this massive industry. In 2014, we received numerous offers on NBC's Shark Tank, starting with Damon John and followed by Lori Grenier and Robert Herjevec who offered a $1M buyout.

107% projected year over year growth, and profitable!

NBC's Shark Tank thrust us in the spotlight, and we have been able to capitalize on it ever since:

  • Over $3.3M in lifetime sales
  • On track to double last years sales with over $400k in profit
  • Over 686k customers from all over the world
  • 75% of customers come back and buy another SoapSox

Not to mention some incredible retail parters like Amazon, Walmart, QVC, and The Honest Company

Following our Shark Tank success in 2016, we signed a Disney® licensing agreement and secured distribution to QVC®, Buy Buy Baby, Target and 3,000 specialty stores through our exclusive US distribution agreement with Ginsey Home Solutions.  Quickly, we expanded distribution partners to Amazon and Walmart, dramatically widening our market and in 2018, we formed a partnership with the Honest Company to bundle SoapSox® with bath soaps.

And it's not just "The Sharks" who love us

With have an average rating of 4.2 stars on Amazon and a majority 5 star rating, 75% of customers come back and buy another Soapsox after their purchase. But it's really our customers who help us realize we are more than on to something...

Washcloths that kids love, and parents appreciate even more

SoapSox®, which at times we affectionately call "fun"ctional plush toys, are unique. The adorable, eye-catching designs are coupled with a technology that is distinct, yet simple and engaging for kids. The toys have thoughtful details like heart-shaped pupils and subtle smiles. Characters have memorable names like Taylor the Turtle or Harper the Hippo and come equipped with stories to engage with children's imagination. Our characters actually float in the water like the animal would itself.  SoapSox® are unlike any other washcloth you have ever purchased.

$4.9B+ in the "Plush", baby care and toddler products alone

SoapSox® products uniquely straddle two major industries in the global and US Market: Toys and Baby Care. U.S. consumers spent a record $4.98 billion on Plush, Baby/Toddler/Preschool, and Baby Care products in 2018. According to Toy Association’s 2019 Trend Spotting, infusing popular licensed properties in all types of innovative products  has helped licensing make up nearly 30 percent of all U.S. toy sales. We are universal. Our customers are the 39.9 million parents and 69.9 million grandparents buying gifts for 19.9 million children ages 0-4 in the U.S. Our current market adoption of SoapSox® aligns with what the data suggests in regards to growth opportunities.

Licensing allows us to continue to scale with exciting new products

With patented products, we are able to scale this company to a number of new industries and brands. Because of our myriad partnerships, we are able to create SoapSox® versions of the most popular branded characters in the market today. Soon through our licensing partnership with Ginsey Home Solutions, we are planning to introducing Sesame Street, Paw Patrol, and more of your favorite characters. 

Paw Patrol: The $300M TV juggernaut

We are excited to announce that in February 2020, Walmart will begin selling custom Paw Patrol SoapSox. One of the most popular kids show in the world, it is responsible for over $300M in annual toy sales alone (source).

Satisfying the global demand for baby care products, already in 10+ countries

With established partnerships like Nordstrom, BuyBuy Baby, Target, Walmart, Amazon, and QVC, we have already begun expanding internationally into ten different countries. These sales exist domestically in both brick and mortar locations as well as a booming online presence. This is particularly significant in the large grandparent market who tend to spend 3.5 times more online than they would in a store. Our licensed characters have helped secure sales -- in children brand loyalty begins as early as age 2, and by age 3, American children make specific requests for brand-name products. By age 4, children are ready to make their own (parent-financed) purchases. 

Patents and partnerships allow us to continue innovating

Unlike any competitor in the market, SoapSox® is positioned to cross several categories in the toy industry including infant/toddler/preschool toys, plush, bath. We set ourselves apart through our innovation. We boast a wide array and ever-expanding list of licensed characters with patented sound technology and quality construction. Our patented "feeding" feature engages kids and the anti-microbial material and ability to machine wash is a joy to parents. We are utility patented in the USA, Canada, and EU, design patented and trademarked in China. On top of all of that, we sell SoapSox® at an extremely affordable price point, starting at just $9.99.

Dino Sounders: Bringing washcloths to life.

We have washable speaker technology that allows our characters to emit sounds. Imagine dinosaurs roaring, cars revving, and tug boat horns blaring during your kid's bath time adventures. We also have many new characters in development with recognizable and friendly faces that will excite children all over the world.

We're just two dads making a splash

After witnessing a distraught child who refused to bathe, Ray and his staff noticed that the child wouldn’t part with his plush toy. It was in that moment that Ray had an aha moment. He modified the plush toy to hold soap and the child never had a problem with bath time again. Seeing the relief and joy across the child’s face was an unforgettable moment for Ray and his staff. When he discovered that there wasn’t a product like it on the market, he started SoapSox®. Through friends, Ray met Creative Director Alvin Uy and over the next two years, they developed SoapSox®. After a successful Kickstarter Campaign in 2013, SoapSox® was introduced to the world.

SoapSox® is more than a washcloth...

We think SoapSox® is a smart investment not only because of the unique competitive advantages, growing retail presence, exciting partnerships, or the substantial growth opportunity, but also because of our mission to create a safe space for kids. Since SoapSox® was created in the halls of a facility that helped protect children, we've committed ourselves to this cause and aim to provide greater support to organizations that help to provide safe places for children. Our ultimate goal is to establish SoapSox® as an industry leader, while advancing our agenda to remove the statute of limitations on crimes against children nationally. Join us and together let's see the waves that we can make.

SoapSox reached our max goal of $1.07M because of you!

3 months ago

Thank you!!

I want to take the time to say thank you to everyone of the investors who have joined us on this journey. We are humbled and thrilled that with your support we were able to reach our funding goal. 

Now that we have reached this new milestone, we understand that the work continues. Even more important is our ability, and commitment to execute. 

Making good on our commitment we have remained busy working to expand SoapSox' brand presence, and drive sales. Although we are in a new environment in the era of COVID19. I believe we can be tasteful in our marketing efforts, and share a positive experience with parents and their children through our product. More than ever the world is full of uncertainty, and what we provide is a little joy, laughs, and tools to teach better hygiene. 

We have been working diligently to increase our direct to consumer and Amazon business. As a result of our work we have redesigned our website with a new look and feel that we believe will enhance the shopping experience and increase conversion rates. The same look and feel will also be applied to our Amazon store page in the coming days. 

We've also developed several new videos that captures and conveys the essence of our brand to consumers. As well as increased our product bundles to offer more variety to customers. Paw Patrol (see below) and Sounderz are well under way and expect to be launched this fall. 

Most changes you will see immediately by using the links below, whiles others are being implemented in the coming weeks. 

There will also be additional changes with how we communicate with you, our investors now that the raise is over. 

What to expect? 

  • We will now begin emailing each of you directly. 
    • You each should have received our welcome email with details regarding our contact information, perks, investor discount codes, and certificate of stocks.
    • If you have any questions feel free to email me directly.
  • You will receive quarterly updates on company sales, product developments, partnerships, or any other pertinent information. 
    • A link to where you can find company financial information is located in the email provided.

Throughout this transition of moving away from communicating through StartEngine we will do our best to be very receptive to our investors suggestions, and or concerns. Please don't hesitate to let me know how we can best keep you informed of all things SoapSox, or if you'd like additional information or clarification on something. We are a small company with big ambitions, and we believe we are all in this together, because we are. So suggestions, input, professionals contacts, and support are welcome. 

We will continue to move the brand forward with a new level of confidence given the resources, belief in the product, and ultimately belief in our team that you all have conveyed. 

Thanks to each of you, we are looking ahead and forward to an exciting future.

Cheers!

Ray, and the SoapSox team.

SoapSox crosses $700k in investment from 1,400+ investors.

4 months ago

Hi Everyone,

We are beyond grateful for you, our investors, customers, advisors, and advocates. 

While drafting this email I remembered first having the idea of turning SoapSox into a product after a rough spat of trying to motivate a few kids to take a bath. Although ultimately successful due to SoapSox, it was the beginning of our pursuit of the American dream. 

As you can imagine there were countless late nights and early mornings. Times when two jobs were a must to fund the business, and more than few setbacks. However, 6 years later, and now owning 6 patents, retail partnerships, funding, and a clear strategy for growth. We are beyond thrilled to have reached this milestone. 

We know that these are challenging times in our country and around the world. Proper hygiene, and staying healthy are at the top of everyones list. To do our part, we are working on plans to do more to help families and bring a few more smiles to kids around the country. We will share more in the coming weeks. 

For those that have been watching, and are considering joining us on this journey. Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns if there is anything holding you back.

Again, we cannot thank those of you who have joined us on this journey. Thank you for your support and belief in our vision. 

It is amazing to see how many people have reached out throughout the campaign to share their enthusiasm for what we have built and how we plan to continue growing this company. It is because of each and every one of you that we were able to reach this milestone and without you, this never would have happened! We look forward to hopefully surpassing many other milestones together and are proud to have all of you behind us every step of the way. 

Please do you best to stay safe and healthy.

Cheers!

- Ray, and the SoapSox team.

SoapSox Raises $600K

We have reached another milestone and are well on our way to the next. 

I want to take the time to share our appreciation for our investors who are now family. Our previous email was well received and allowed us to reach new heights in regards to our raise. We are now well on our way toward reaching the next one. 

More than ever I realize how lucky we are to have such an amazing community who believes in what we are doing. Not only due to the kind words and outpouring of support, but it was one of our most successful raise weeks ever, crossing 1,100+ investors and over $600k in amount raised.

These are challenging times in our country, and each of us are doing our best to navigate them. We were told that Soapsox is bringing some joy to kids all around the country, and helping teach them better hygiene. We’ve also been told that parents are happy as well (especially now that everyone is spending a lot more time together). 

During these times sales have remained steady, however again nothing is more important than your health and that of your family and friends. 

Lastly, if you have considered investing, now is the time. We have positioned ourselves for growth with expanded partnerships with Walmart, Target, and others. We also are looking forward to the addition of new products, and intro into new categories including pet.

We have a bright future and would love for you to be a part of it.

Balancing business and family during Covid-19

4 months ago

Hi everyone,

As I work from home drafting emails, taking calls, and juggling being my wife’s teachers assistant and the PE teacher for our three kids. It struck me that we are all doing our best to manage business and family during these challenging times. 

SoapSox despite the challenging times is doing well. SoapSox increased inventory levels months prior to Covid-19 impacting manufacturing in China, and have 4 months of inventory on hand. Domestic sales have increased again for the second month in a row up 350% from 2019. Honest Co. has confirmed the expansion of our partnership with an order pending. Walmart sales are at 1.2 units PWPS, our Target end cap campaign launches April 1st across the country, and we are nearing a new milestones of $500k in investment on StartEngine with 823+ investors.

All of the above is important, however what is most important is you/us, our families, our health. So we will continue to do our part to grow the business, and have a positive impact in the lives of families and kids. We ask that you continue to do your part to take care of yourself and each other.

Also,  if you happen to have a call with any parent any time soon, please excuse kids laughing in the back ground, and in my case my two year old daughter trying to wrestle with her big brothers. Although distracting at times, its a sound that makes the little inconveniences worth it. So from my family to yours, please stay safe, healthy, and do you best to enjoy the extra time with the ones you love. We wish everyone the best.

Amazing news... Target will be featuring SoapSox's Brand story.

9 months ago

Hey Everyone, 

I am happy to provide an update following my meeting at Target HQ last week. I just received confirmation from Target’s Creative team that SoapSox has been selected to have our story featured by Target. The content created would launch in Feb 2020 and run through March 2020. They anticipate the content will live in the following channels: digital video, social media, Target.com, cinema, digital audio, and potentially within broadcast later in 2020!

This is an ideal situation as it allows SoapSox to be showcased nationally and participate in a store wide program that coincides with the marketing push by Target in Feb 2020. 

We are thrilled to be expanding our partnership as well as expanding our offerings to include your favorite Disney and Paw patrol characters to Target.

Sneak peak at the New Paw Patrol line

10 months ago

We've been getting nothing but positive responses from retailers and customers regarding our creation of Paw Patrol SoapSox. If you have kids in your life then you understand all the excitement. If you don't believe me just show the images below of the first rounds of the characters and see their faces light up with excitement.  We are currently in talks with Target for an expanded program, however we have several other retailers awaiting their arrival including QVC. 

Please note that investors at the $500 level receive all new products before they become available to the public. FYI the rest of the Paw Patrol gang are coming soon. Cheers!

Increased Third Quarter sales and distribution.

10 months ago

SoapSox continues to increase its domestic distribution by nearly 3,000 additional retail doors combined (and more pending). Currently, we are working to expand our retail base to double the current size and are well on our way. 

Some of our most recent accomplishments include:

  • Increased domestic retail sales by $186,000 dollars in the last quarter.
  • Expanded domestic retail partnerships to include Burlington, Associated Foods, SpartanNash, and dozens of new specialty retailers.

With increased orders now coming in for the holiday season from retail partners H.E.B. Walmart, Target, BuyBuy Baby, Amazon, and hundreds of specialty retailers across the country, now is a good time to invest. With limited shares available, and new partnerships and opportunities pending, this is likely the last opportunity to invest at $7.25 per share. If you have friends, family members, or business associates that may be interested in investing, please forward the link below.

If you have already invested we will be sending you an investor SoapSox gift set before the holidays as a thank you! 

Already at our minimum funding goal & expanding to two products in Walmart!

10 months ago

We are happy to share that we have already reached our minimum funding goal!!!! A big thank you to those who have invested and a gentle nudge to those considering.

We are even more excited to share that Walmart has released their preliminary 2020 matrix and SoapSox will be bringing in Paw Patrol SoapSox, as well as SoapSox Juniors. These new products have a preliminary store placement between 2,350 - 4,500 stores. The final store count is pending, however we have requested to be placed in 4000+ stores for both items. 

We are excited about our future and look forward to you being a part of our growing company.
