Your kids loves bubbles, but sometimes sitting and manufacturing breath after breath of bubble fun gets tiring. Enter the Fubbles Bubble Blastin’ Machine. I’ve tried quite a few automatic bubble blowers, and I would only recommend this one.
That’s because the others quickly become gummed up and stop working. Heaven forbid my child hold the bubble blower by the handle and tip it one way or another. It may never blow a bubble again. And even if it does, it gets sticker each time you add more bubble solution to it. In the meantime, it goes through bubbles even faster than your toddler spilling a full container.
Not this bubbles machine. It has a handy spout right on the front, so you don’t even have to pick it up or remove a lid to add more bubbles. Since it remains stationary, my kids don’t carry it around and tip it and the liquid out. It blows bubbles at a very satisfying rate without a ton of noise, fast enough that my three kids can’t pop them all. Even when it runs low on liquid, it keeps on blowing, so you don’t waste the last bit of solution and risk irate kids with no more bubble fun. But it doesn’t last so long I regret pulling it out and wish it would stop so we could all be done.
Ours flew down the steps in a fit of rage just the other day (my kid bumped it while being forcibly removed), and while the base shattered into pieces, the machine still works fine. We use ours only outside, because I don’t need bubbles all over my furniture. But you could certainly use it indoors if you don’t mind bubbles everywhere.
It runs on batteries so it can be placed anywhere. It works best on flat surfaces, but even the ground will do in a pinch. The easy on and off switch located on top can be worked by my youngest child, and it makes a great gift for a wide range of ages without being gender specific. It comes in both orange and pink versions as well.
