Tonight on the replay of ABC's "Shark Tank" Kevin O'Leary, Daymond John, Robert Herjavec, Laurie Greiner and Mark Cuban battle it out as SoapSox, Heart Pup, Ninja Cards and DrumPants seek investments in their companies.

The show kicked off with Ray Phillips and Alvin Uy pitching their product SoapSox. The pair out of Los Angeles, California came up with the idea when Phillips tried to create a new way to make bath time for kids easier.

Uy helped with the design of the product but they can't seem to manufacture their product fast enough.

They are seeking $260,000 for a 10 percent equity in their company. In six months they have managed to do around $300,000 in sales with Nordstrom being one of their major retailers with the design and patent still pending.

O'Leary is concerned about the premium price that is put on the toy being sold for $19.99 versus others he has seen for prices like $3.99 and $4.99. Cuban says that he is out because it isn't a business that appeals to him.

Greiner is concerned about the hefty margin that the company is taking because of their distributor and manufacturer. O'Leary is the next Shark to pull out of the deal leaving just John, Greiner and Herjavec.

When Herjavec pulls out John makes an offering for $260,000 at a hefty 33 percent equity in the company. Greiner is out because of the patent pending leaving just John's deal on the table.

O'Leary actually cautions Alvin and Ray before they try to counter the offer and the pair get an even more enticing offer when Greiner and Herjavec offer to buy it out for $1 million.

The pair declines both of the offers after the lengthy exchange.

Next up was Anastasia and her product HEART PUP seeking $25,000 for 10 percent equity in her company. The product is a dog carrier that is functional and wearable while maintaining a high fashion look and materials. Anastasia came up with the idea while in law school and 980 units at the premium price of $138 as she said it's a fashion accessory. The product only costs $8 for fabric and another $8 for production.

She's made $135,000 in total sales which is very impressive to the Sharks. Herjavec pulls out along with Cuban, Greiner and O'Leary. John makes her the best offer of $55,000 for 40 percent in her company and she accepts.

Dustin and Ken are looking for $60,000 in exchange for 30 percent of their company Ninja Cards. Their game combines cards and the art of being an Ninja all in one. The over the top pitch seemed to be pretty cool to the Sharks. O'Leary and Herjavec even participated in a demonstration of the game and it seemed like they had a ton of fun competing.

The thick plastic cards are used as darts in the appealing family game. The pair only made 100 units and sold all which does not bode well for them.

What saves them is the fact that they sold an exclusive licensing agreement at the Chicago toy fair.

The company reverted the rights back due to sourcing company and they have been scrambling ever since. Herjavec says that he didn't see enough hustle by the pair and pulled out.

Greiner is out along with John. O'Leary also pulls out along with Cuban and the pair leaves without any funding.

About the Company: Ninja Cards
"Ninja Cards was born in 2009 when two friends/co-workers started throwing hotel key cards at bottles in their hotel room.

Since then, this game of all ages has been widely accepted as the best and ONLY card throwing game out there. The special "Ninja Cards" are made of thick plastic and are easy to throw by all ages." - ABC

Tyler Freeman and Lei Yu are the CTO and CEO of DrumPants a wearable drumset. They would like $150,000 in exchange for 5 percent of their company. They make an impressive pitch that is fun and upbeat.

The pants can be used to control apps, games and devices. Their company is pre-revenue which raises a bit of a red flag for the Sharks, but they managed to raise $75,000 through a Kickstarter campaign.

The product is priced between $99-$229 and they have sold 720 units.

They forecasted $220,000 profit in one year but Greneir pulls out right away along with O'Leary. Herjavec isn't interested in the set but he says that he could be of some help and offers $150,000 for 20 percent. John also offers $250,000 for 20 percent with a licensing agreement.

John is out after the indecisive manner of the two and Cuban says that he also pulls out for the same reason. The indecisive nature even hurts them with the only offer they had left as Herjavec pulls out.
