ORONOCO — Having lunch with two friends and their young children in July 2017 inspired Beth Fynbo of Oronoco to create a product that has sold 600 units and attracted the attention of the TV show "Shark Tank," less than two years later.

Standing in Busy Baby HQ (her basement) by stacks of boxes full of her creations, Fynbo explained how her business started.

She watched as her friends spent a whole luncheon retrieving toys over and over, after their babies threw or dropped them.
