Simply press and blow!
Squeeze the bottle and the wand pops up, then blow your bubbles. Reduce pressure on the bottle and the wand sinks back down.
Reduces drips and spills!
NOTE: Last 10% of solution will not reach wand. You will need to gently tip bottle over BEFORE removing the cap to soak the wand.
A really great idea making it easier for parents and easier for the kids when it comes to bubbles. However be very careful with elast-a-bubbles around furniture as we found it made a bit more of a mess than traditional bubbles. That aside though and they are pretty cool.
A decent shaped wand makes it easy for little hands to hold and seems pretty durable.
We were pretty happy with them, but unlike traditional bubbles best used outside.
What an ingenious method of blowing bubbles, and it is relatively mess free (I say relatively as I still managed to coat my hands with the solution )
The fun factor of the bottle alone kept my kids busy for at least 20 minutes before they got down to the business to big bubble blowing competitions.
Good fun at a good price.
More of the simple pop-able bubbles this one, the big novelty factor is the lack of a separate blowing loop. It is integrated into the design of the bottle itself, activated and raised into position by fluid pressure when you squeeze the bottle. This is a great dribble-proofing feature sure to please any houseproud parent with expensive rugs and/or carpet.
Available in a range of scents, there's also a nice not-so-soapy smell that gently fragrances the air... as the kids go haring around the house trailing streams of prismatic orbs...
Overall... though this has a far superior bottle and dispensing system, the bubbles are just (or only, if you are the glass-half-empty type) as magical as normal bubbles... you can try and catch them, but don't expect much. The Catch-a-Bubble fluid in this bottle would be a market-winner of a product IMHO.
This is a seriously cool bit of kit - give the bottle a squeeze, the loop pops up and you blow. Release the pressure, the loop retracts back into the bottle to get re-charged with the bubble solution.
I was so enchanted by this toy that my daughter had to nag to have a go. I really did not want to give it to her - but anything for a quiet life - and that is the real bonus to this bubble kit - the quiet you get from your kids.
At a smidgen over a fiver, it is well worth stocking up to make sure your weekends (and particularly the rugger matches - being world cup season) are in absolute quiet from the kids.
What more can any parent want?
