We received a Bubble Belly© Bubble Blower Toy from Imperial Toy to review as part of our springtime bubble fun. Sadly, we had to wait a few days for the weather to catch up with our enthusiasm!
Owen couldn't wait to open the package. He looks at these EVERY TIME we go to Toys R Us, and finally, he had one of his own to try out. What the Bubble Bellies is, is a plastic animal shaped bubble blower. You put batteries in it, fill it with the included bubble solution, squeeze the handle, and bubbles blow out.
We got it free from it's packaging, put the batteries in. . .we had a little trouble with the battery compartment, but we got it open and working just fine. We poured in the Bubble Solution, and BAZINGA. . .
Bubble Time. According to the directions, it takes a few seconds for the mechanism to fill with bubble solution, so you shouldn't expect bubbles the first second you press the handle. But in no time, Owen was making trails of bubble across the backyard.
Some hints from the manufacturer to make sure you have as much success and fun as possible are:
- Make sure you use Little Tykes©, Miracle© Bubbles, or Super Miracle© Bubbles solution.
- Be patient. Prime the wand for 30 seconds the first time you use it, and remember that the wand must be fully coated for tons of bubbles.
- Hold the Bubble Bellies© upright and don't pull the handle too rapidly.
We give this two thumbs up for ease of use and fun. What is your kids' favorite springtime activity?
catch you soon -
disclosure - I received a Bubble Bellies© bubble blower for free to facilitate this review. I was not compensated for this post, and as always all opinions are my very own.
