It’s been a long time coming, but Walmart finally picked a pair of their favorite new products as the grand prize winners for their “Get on the Shelf” contest. It won’t be too long before you’ll be able to pick up a set of SKRIBS Customizable Wristbands and the Elvis Presley Home Bedding Collection for yourself!
Olugbenga Oluwatumilara “Tumi” Oredein Jr. from Richmond, Virginia, designed SKRIBS to be a fun accessory that allows the wearer to instantly doodle whatever comes to mind. These colorful wristbands are sure to be a hit for doodle-crazy kids nationwide, so keep an eye out for these dry-erase inventions!
David Bursteen, the Los Angeles based co-president of Legends Home Bedding was picked by Walmart to sell his Elvis Presley Home Bedding Collection as the first licensed bed set for the King of Rock & Roll.
In addition to the two grand prize winning inventions listed above, Walmart will also sell the other three winners from their webisode round of judging: “BluTrack” the flexible toy car raceway, “Chemo Beanies” a series of stylish headwear for chemotherapy patients, and the Gibi Pet Location Service, a GPS service that allows users to track their pets using their computer or smart phone.
All five inventions will be made available soon online at Walmart’s website, but you can preorder your favorites right now. Congratulations to all of the incredible product makers of Walmart’s Get on the Shelf contest!
