FULL TRANSCRIPT

RT: welcome to products worth talking about. I’m Marty. This is Tyler today where we’re in flannels cause it’s cyber Friday. It’s flannel. Black Friday. Okay. A cyber Monday here in the office. And we’re talking about cyber Monday and we’re talking about toys for kids from Amazon on cyber Monday because between the two of us, we have four boys. And um, we got to get them toys for Christmas. So,

Tyler: and some of those we just like to hang out and play with toys.

RT: Yeah, we’re gonna just get a weird all of these on. I’m going to shoot things. It’s a, it’s going to be fun I think. So let’s dive in. Why do it, why cyber Monday? Why Amazon? What, uh, why does it matter to other,

Tyler: I don’t know if you know this, but Amazon is kind of a big deal, kind of a big deal. I mean stats on Amazon, you guys are ready for this, and if you’re not selling on Amazon, if you’re a product based business, so if you have a product or if you want to start being an entrepreneur and start your own business, selling on Amazon is a great way to do it. It’s amazing. It’s not easy concepts actually easy, but to get traction is kind of difficult. But if you’re not selling, if you have a product you should be selling on Amazon, hands down 100% here’s some stats for you. 55% of consumers begin their online shopping searches with Amazon, right? K a Amazons, surpass Google and product search searches. So when people are looking for a product, they don’t go to Google, they go to Amazon. Yeah, we know that nine out of 10 consumers check the price or product on Amazon before they buy 100% of every single.

RT: standing and target on Amazon saying, should I buy this here? Should I wait two days?

Tyler: If you’re not selling on Amazon, you should be all right. It’s crazy.

RT: And the stuff I found in 2018 Amazon sold 18 million toys worldwide on two days, just black Friday and cyber Monday, just on black Friday, 4 million toys were sold through the mobile app. Amazon’s mobile app alone. And then Jeff Bezos, his net worth by $6 billion on cyber Monday of 2018 years. Yeah, I think his wife’s still got half of that in the divorce, but cruel facts there from Amazon, just craziness. So that’s why we’re talking about toys on cyber Monday and.

Tyler: we, I mean, there no methodology on these toys. We kind of search like we want, you know, disruptive brands or innovative products. There wasn’t really methodology. We just kind of looked and said, Hey, like what would our kids like? Right. And so our ages, our 18 months, a five-year-old and a two and a half year old and a five month old.

Tyler: So it’s like perfect, right? So you try to find kind of a toy for each one of them.

RT: Um, and we have our producer Ruby, this small seven pound dog. What’s up? Why don’t you hang out?

RT: Just lay down. I’m currently clawing at Tyler’s leg right now. She wants to hang out too. She wants to hang out, go lay down. And um, yeah. Anyway, so we, we wanted to get a toy for each of them and I think, you know, like we’re actually gonna use these toys for Christmas. Hopefully they don’t find us on YouTube before then. I think we’re good. Yeah. My two and a half year old, he figures YouTube out pretty quick.

Tyler: My five year old, he can probably find it.

RT: He’s probably like search for daddy. All right, here we go.

Tyler: So we’re going to go through these four products that we found. We’re going to kind of look at a couple things. So we’re going to unbox each product. This is my first one. It’s called the slow motion race game. Interesting. Okay. So five-year-old especially, I mean like they just have energy, right? For sure. They go like crazy. So I thought this was cool. So essentially what this does is you put this thing on so that it comes with this little trophy, right? So you’ve got this trophy, you make the trophy here and then, Oh my gosh. This is going in your head. Yeah, dude. Put that on your head. We’re going to play this. I hit the button. Not yet. Not yet. All right. Got my trophy, my trophy up. Yup.

RT: I got my, I got my lightning rod.

Tyler: The cap trophies is out of the shot. Hang on. Okay. Trophy’s not standing up very well. It’s okay. I have a huge head. Is this thing stretches quite Holy smokes. Yeah. Okay, good. Okay. Here’s the key. You slowly move. Whoa, really slow. So if you said this across the room, it’s how slow you can get there. But if you move beeps, Oh, you got to stop.

RT: So, so you, you, you have to move really slowly. Oh my gosh. So if I like do this in my head.

RT: Wow. So did you buy this toy so that you could get.

Tyler: my child is sloped be slow, right? Just literally walk slow around the house better than fasting where they just distribute thing.

RT: I feel like this noise might outweigh.

Tyler: Maybe you’re right. So let’s see your rule concept work on this. I mean, I think, I mean, i.

RT: f you can get him to do it, I mean that’s so cool. [inaudible].

Tyler: 1799 now we also looked at the data on this like we do, right? So we got out jungle scout, we looked at the numbers on it and they’re doing, actually not whole lot of sales. So this is a big company. This is Hasbro. So this is not going to be like a private label or like a unique product, um, about $3,000 a month. So I think it’s coming. Newer product for him, maybe not. Um, so not a whole lot of sales,

RT: but an interesting concept. And nonetheless, I thought it was cool. I think it’s, I think it’ll be hilarious for Instagram and I can’t wait to see videos of you guys just very slowly running around us to this on my 18 month old to see if, I mean he just won’t like, Nope, I get this off. Yeah, that’s crazy. Number one,

RT: my, my least expensive one. My first one is this little guy, baby Einstein. Um, when Sawyer was a few months old, we got one of these, can’t remember if we bought it or it was a hand me down. Um, it’s nine bucks, eight 99, and it just plays music and we’re not going to do it until I opened the package because it’s doesn’t w it goes for like those man ever. Um, it’s the, it’s half the most annoying thing ever and half, uh, the best thing ever. Cause they, they just get so enthralled by the music and it’s a great distraction, especially for the car. So when you get in here, if I can, um, basically you just press this button and it plays music in a place, put it next to my mic so you can kind of just really get the feeling that that gives you and then I’ll turn it off. Um, there is a, a S a slower, uh, a more quiet setting. So this one is just a little quieter. So we at one point taped it on this setting so that he can take it all the way to the high setting, but he loved it. Um, but yeah, I mean just sit there and you know, this stuff moves, you know, this, this stuff lights up, you know, this. But by the time, I think six to nine months in this button was like totally worn off and it didn’t work anymore. So we just bought another one. Um, and now I have one for, for West who’s five months old and I think he’ll love this thing. It’s going to be perfect. But for nine bucks, I mean, you can’t do any better than this. And what’s crazy is Amazon said that baby Einstein does 83,000 a month in sales of this $9 product.

Tyler: And I mean, they sell a ton of products. Their numbers are not through doing like over a million in sales on Amazon a month off their product. So it’s nuts.

RT: So anyway, you know, any, any kid less than like a year old, it says three months plus. This is just a perfect kind of distraction in the car. Whenever you’re trying to get something done. I hand them that thing, they love it. And if you can convince him to stop, a good luck. I guess at that point. Yeah. Nine bucks is cheap.

Tyler: Nine bucks. Number two for me is the simple good old Plato. Uh, hamburgers say here. So real simple. I mean it’s, everyone knows what Plato is. Plato as a group. I mean the first page of Plato products from jungle scout on Amazon, I mean they’re doing like 70 $800,000 a month just on the first page. So I mean, you know, Plato selling over a couple of million a month on Amazon. Um, this is kinda cool. I mean they don’t never goes out of style. No. Oh, there’s things where like you just have around the house, you know, open it up. You got a couple of things at play though, the huge, but you got this like little penny pressing thing is awesome. Yeah. That’s in here. You know. Oh look gas like all the necessities got thing. Yes. Bachelet and you know, there’s just, statue is just a scissors.

RT: Oh, it’s like a butter knife. So you can put your little hamburger Patty real quick here. Does this thing slide in somewhere? That’s cool. So kind of simple. I’m stuff. It was on sale.

Tyler: for like five bucks, right? Oh, there’s plates. Yeah. It was like five bucks when we got it, but I think it’s a 14 bucks total. I’ll make this quick little lunch here.

RT: Yeah, I love it. You got lunch on the way, so we got a hamburger. It kind of looks like the alternative meat episode. There we go.

Tyler: Yeah, so I think it’s a good buy for five bucks at a time if you can get on sale again. Yeah. Otherwise the regular price was, I think came out 1314 bucks. Yeah. Even if it’s.

RT: 10 10 15 bucks, it’s still still gonna work out. Great. Plato’s good for, I mean they recommend what ages? Like four and up five enough. Three. Yeah. You didn’t goes in here and then you can like do your condiments this way. Squeeze the playdough.

Tyler: Yeah, that’s a great buy. Cool. It’s awesome. Endless entertainment. Still don’t know what this cost. Do we know what this does. It pushes down so it makes it, that’s how you make your a lettuce or onions. Who has a make your onions. That’s how you do it. Solid. Love it. Cool. Playdough easy.

RT: Finally my other one over here, let’s see what this one is called. We have the Disney Pixar toy story four buzz light year three in one armor pack and it looks as cool as it sounds. So this thing, some assembly required. Um, but it is buzz light years jet pack monies ranger. This one’s a, another whole level of, of pricing and everything. This one was $79. So, um, bit of a jump from these other ones. But if you want to splurge for your kid and he’s a fan, um, of buzz light year, it really doesn’t get any better than this. This thing. Check this out. Ooh, that thing fires this thing. Hit this button, this button and it just comes down [inaudible] crazy. Awesome. We’ll see if it fits there. We’d go. Boom. I mean, what do you think? That’s pretty money. Yup. And then which one? What about your head’s massive.

Tyler: So it doesn’t fit in there, but like you lay a stuffed sardine a little bit. It’s pretty sweet dude. It’s gonna. I mean on Christmas morning, this is going to blow his mind. So I love it. And it’s not quite as loud as some of the other toy. Whoa. What just happened to see that? That’s amazing. You got to do that. Cam is sector four is, let’s see what this says. Whoa, that’s nuts. Okay. So this thing’s awesome. They do $42,000 a month in sales of this product, which I thought was awesome. Impressive. Considering the price of this one, you know, it’s 80 bucks.

RT: Yeah. This will be huge this year for Christmas. I think, you know, the timing is right for this one. And um, you know, for the holidays, if they do a cyber Monday sale on this specific product, I think it’d be crazy. It’d be just nuts.

Tyler: And you know, these are all fair, these are all big brands. So like, we didn’t look at like the smaller brands, so we were gonna kinda look at their, um, their pages and see if they’re optimized or not. Um, once again, if you guys are familiar with how to sell an Amazon, a big part of it is optimizing your, your page, you know, making sure the keywords are there. And it’s funny cause these guys just throw them out there if throw it up, it’s like done over with. Yeah, if they were optimized they’d probably perform a lot better.

RT: Well I think the one caveat is this guy seems a little bit more optimized like the page on Amazon for this baby Einstein product actually has like a full description with good photos and stuff. And I think you can tell that by, by the numbers. And I think someone at that big company that owns that one, they were like, Hey, we’re doing really well with this one. We should really double down. So yeah. Anyway, which one’s your favorite?

Tyler: I mean, this is amazing. I, I don’t know, I, this could be my favorite. It depends. It could be a disaster. Like David, they put it on and be like this, it looks like we put it on wrong.

RT: You’re supposed to put the like thing in the [inaudible]. Right. And then that one’s in there. That could be like, yeah,

Tyler: I don’t know. I don’t know. It could be a winner or loser. It’s one of those toys that may end up in a like toy chest after a couple months. Nobody cares about it. And yet, this is amazing. Uh, I don’t know, like your son loves toy story, so that’s probably gonna be the GM.

RT: Sawyer is, is gonna wear this pretty much every day for a long time. So I’ve, I’ve signed ourselves up for, for something great. And, um, I, you know, I, I think, I think this, this one I’m just amazed at like for nine bucks they’re selling 80 some thousand dollars worth of them and mine. I just think that’s nuts. So that’s, that’s probably like the best bang for the buck there if you have a little kid. Yeah. Um, and then, yeah, I, you know, I dunno. So you’re going to have his life changed for 80 bucks. So, yes.

Tyler: In terms of, um, like what I’m going to take back to my company, we like to look in the episodes on that. So right now we’re actually, I’ve sold on Amazon quite a bit. I’ve had FBA products, I’ve had private label, I’ve sold my own products. Um, it’s a, it’s a really powerful tool. It’s a whole nother, if you don’t, if you have a small team, it can be overwhelming because, you know, it takes a lot of effort to really optimize and look at like competitive markets and things like that. But like some people just like to buy an Amazon. So like, you know, I’ve got rebel Jane’s the supplement company we sell on Shopify. That’s our primarily our channel right now. We’re going into retail pretty soon. But Amazon, it’s kinda like a necessity, you know, it’s like one of those evils where so many people buy and they prefer to buy on Amazon. You gotta be there. So we’re launching on Amazon. We should be up here in about 30 days, probably by the time this episode airs. Um, and we’ve put a lot of effort and optimization using jungle scout for keywords. Look at our competitors. We’re entering in the most competitive, uh, landscape on Amazon. So it’s going to be a little tough. But you’ve got to do it. You just have to. Yeah. So it’s just how it’s just another channel.

RT: Yeah. And for me, I mean I think I just look at Amazon as a missed opportunity for, for vortex, but also like our, you know, our products are all one of a kind. So I’ve been trying to figure out how to do it for a long time. And I think what, what this has taught me is these are all huge companies that sell all kinds of other stuff, mostly through retail probably, but they just toss them on Amazon to kind of, you know, make accidentally 80 grand a month. Right? So there might be something in my business that I could just toss on Amazon and maybe it would make more money just to go back to the guys.

Tyler: Like there are, there are endless opportunities on Amazon and there’s a lot of experts out there. So I’m not going to pretend I’m one of those it Amazon experts, but I’ve sold enough to know there’s an endless opportunity. So if you’re looking for a low car cost startup where maybe you don’t have a team in place, maybe you only have a couple of hundred bucks or 1000 bucks, you can start on Amazon. And you know, like with your FBA program, you just send the products to them, they fulfill every crazy for you. It’s so, so easy. I’m so awesome. Um, yeah, so it’s, it’s, and it’s a great way to start and then eventually launch out into Shopify or a different, you know, distribution. But Amazon FBA is pretty slick.

RT: It’s pretty awesome. So that’s products worth talking about. The cyber Monday episode, toys for boys, right. Toys for, I just came up with Dell playing on the splash Monday, flail Friday, cyber Monday. And um, yeah, make sure you check us out. Products worth talking about. Dot com products. We’re talking about an Instagram and Facebook. Um, let us know what you found for your cyber Monday deal, especially for your kids. We want to know, we’ll probably buy some of it. And um, if you have a cool product as always, let us know. Uh, slide in the DM. Send us an email and we might be able to feature it on the show and subscribe to the channel too. We’re like rocking like we’re, so we’re only have like 130 what subscription. You know, people are subscribing slowly, but it’s awesome. It’s like, yeah, it’s great starting to see people being like, Oh, this is awesome. This is awesome. So hit that button, follow us, check us out, see you next time.

Okay. So this thing’s awesome. They do $42,000 a month in sales of this product, which I thought was awesome. Impressive. Considering the price of this one, you know, it’s 80 bucks.

RT: Yeah. This will be huge this year for Christmas. I think, you know, the timing is right for this one. And um, you know, for the holidays, if they do a cyber Monday sale on this specific product, I think it’d be crazy. It’d be just nuts.

Tyler: And you know, these are all fair, these are all big brands. So like, we didn’t look at like the smaller brands, so we were gonna kinda look at their, um, their pages and see if they’re optimized or not. Um, once again, if you guys are familiar with how to sell an Amazon, a big part of it is optimizing your, your page, you know, making sure the keywords are there. And it’s funny cause these guys just throw them out there if throw it up, it’s like done over with. Yeah, if they were optimized they’d probably perform a lot better.

RT: Well I think the one caveat is this guy seems a little bit more optimized like the page on Amazon for this baby Einstein product actually has like a full description with good photos and stuff. And I think you can tell that by, by the numbers. And I think someone at that big company that owns that one, they were like, Hey, we’re doing really well with this one. We should really double down. So yeah. Anyway, which one’s your favorite?

Tyler: I mean, this is amazing. I, I don’t know, I, this could be my favorite. It depends. It could be a disaster. Like David, they put it on and be like this, it looks like we put it on wrong.

RT: You’re supposed to put the like thing in the [inaudible]. Right. And then that one’s in there. That could be like, yeah,

Tyler: I don’t know. I don’t know. It could be a winner or loser. It’s one of those toys that may end up in a like toy chest after a couple months. Nobody cares about it. And yet, this is amazing. Uh, I don’t know, like your son loves toy story, so that’s probably gonna be the GM.

RT: Sawyer is, is gonna wear this pretty much every day for a long time. So I’ve, I’ve signed ourselves up for, for something great. And, um, I, you know, I, I think, I think this, this one I’m just amazed at like for nine bucks they’re selling 80 some thousand dollars worth of them and mine. I just think that’s nuts. So that’s, that’s probably like the best bang for the buck there if you have a little kid. Yeah. Um, and then, yeah, I, you know, I dunno. So you’re going to have his life changed for 80 bucks. So, yes.

Tyler: In terms of, um, like what I’m going to take back to my company, we like to look in the episodes on that. So right now we’re actually, I’ve sold on Amazon quite a bit. I’ve had FBA products, I’ve had private label, I’ve sold my own products. Um, it’s a, it’s a really powerful tool. It’s a whole nother, if you don’t, if you have a small team, it can be overwhelming because, you know, it takes a lot of effort to really optimize and look at like competitive markets and things like that. But like some people just like to buy an Amazon. So like, you know, I’ve got rebel Jane’s the supplement company we sell on Shopify. That’s our primarily our channel right now. We’re going into retail pretty soon. But Amazon, it’s kinda like a necessity, you know, it’s like one of those evils where so many people buy and they prefer to buy on Amazon. You gotta be there. So we’re launching on Amazon. We should be up here in about 30 days, probably by the time this episode airs. Um, and we’ve put a lot of effort and optimization using jungle scout for keywords. Look at our competitors. We’re entering in the most competitive, uh, landscape on Amazon. So it’s going to be a little tough. But you’ve got to do it. You just have to. Yeah. So it’s just how it’s just another channel.

RT: Yeah. And for me, I mean I think I just look at Amazon as a missed opportunity for, for vortex, but also like our, you know, our products are all one of a kind. So I’ve been trying to figure out how to do it for a long time. And I think what, what this has taught me is these are all huge companies that sell all kinds of other stuff, mostly through retail probably, but they just toss them on Amazon to kind of, you know, make accidentally 80 grand a month. Right? So there might be something in my business that I could just toss on Amazon and maybe it would make more money just to go back to the guys.

Tyler: Like there are, there are endless opportunities on Amazon and there’s a lot of experts out there. So I’m not going to pretend I’m one of those it Amazon experts, but I’ve sold enough to know there’s an endless opportunity. So if you’re looking for a low car cost startup where maybe you don’t have a team in place, maybe you only have a couple of hundred bucks or 1000 bucks, you can start on Amazon. And you know, like with your FBA program, you just send the products to them, they fulfill every crazy for you. It’s so, so easy. I’m so awesome. Um, yeah, so it’s, it’s, and it’s a great way to start and then eventually launch out into Shopify or a different, you know, distribution. But Amazon FBA is pretty slick.

RT: It’s pretty awesome. So that’s products worth talking about. The cyber Monday episode, toys for boys, right.
