HandiScoop takes off after TV appearance
27th January 2017

The inventor of a poop scoop featured on TV’s Dragons’ Den this month is looking for distributors and retailers.
 
John Nicholls, who invented the HandiScoop – billed as ‘the world’s best’ – says he has been ‘inundated’ with inquiries since he presented the product to the Dragons.
 
He says the device solves ‘the age-old problem of how best to pick up after your dog’.
 
“Hygienic, because the clever system lets you attach a standard size poop bag to quickly and cleverly ‘scoop up your poop’,” he said.
 
Unfortunately, John does not own all the IP – although he has secured the worldwide selling rights – so no investment followed. 
 
“However, since the programme aired the Handiscoop website has been inundated and sales at trade shows have gone crazy,” said John. “Such is the power of appearing on the Dragons’ Den!
 
“The real benefit has been the response from the public, as well as a wonderfully positive feedback from purchasers of Handiscoop – what an incredible outcome.”
