Shark Tank returns to ABC for its ninth season tonight, and we can only imagine what weird, wonderful, and wacky products people will pitch to the Sharks this year. In the meantime, here are a few of the items for your home that have been featured on the show since it started in 2009.

Arguably Shark Tank's most successful product of all time with $50 million in sales, we included this smiley sponge in a roundup of Cleaning Products that Shark Tank Has Convinced Me I Need.
