It may have jumped the river to dreaded Manhattan, but kidtech company Toymail has roots in the best borough. The startup hit national airwaves Friday night with an appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank.

So how’d it turn out?

Cofounder Gauri Nanda accepted a $600,000 investment from Silicon Valley guy Chris Sacca and QVC queen Lori Greiner. Not too shabby.
