SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Nov. 7, 2013 - Walmart announced today the two Grand Prize Winners of its popular Get on the Shelf contest, Elvis Presley Home Bedding Collectionand SKRIBS Customizable Wristbands. As Grand Prize Winners, both products will be sold on Walmart.comand receive additional online marketing support. They will also be introduced to the Walmart Stores' Merchandising team for store shelf consideration.

"Get on the Shelf has given American entrepreneurs and businesses the rare opportunity to showcase their product innovation to a broad set of new customers," said Kelly Thompson, Senior Vice President of Merchandising for Walmart.com. "Through this exciting process, our customers have chosen items that we are excited to add to our online assortment at Walmart.com. Congratulations to both Grand Prize Winners who have demonstrated creativity, persistence and a true understanding of what America wants to see on the shelves at Walmart."

Thousands of inventors, entrepreneurs and small businesses nationwide entered the contest with video submissions for products ranging from household wares and children's toys to electronic gadgets and pet products. The top 20 finalists were featured in five weekly "webisodes," and viewers around the country voted to narrow the field to a weekly webisode winner. Those five winning products were made available for pre-order on Walmart.com, with the highest number of pre-orders crowned the Grand Prize Winners. All five webisode winners are available online for pre-order at Walmart.com, including:

  • Elvis Presley Home Bedding Collection(Grand Prize Winner Over $40) - Customers will soon be able to "Sleep like a King" with the Elvis Presley Home Bedding Collection. Created by David Bursteen, co-president of Legends Home Bedding in Los Angeles, the collection provides comfortable and stylish home bedding sets decorated with the King of Rock n Roll, Elvis Presley! As a life-long fan of Elvis, Bursteen says it was only natural that he and his partner would create the first-ever licensed bedding for adults using Elvis' image. Available in Twin, Full/Queen, and King sets, starting at $79.95.

  • SKRIBS Customizable Wristbands (Grand Prize Winner Under $40) - SKRIBS Customizable Wristbands were created by "Tumi" Oredein Jr., from Richmond, VA.

He believes his erasable wristband product gives children the creative opportunity to draw and express themselves at any time. Available in 3-packs for $8.95.
