Need an affordable toy that will fascinate all ages? Want some goodies to fill your reward box for potty training, kind behavior, or other positive reinforcement? Grab one of these small Super Z Outlet Liquid Motion Bubblers and see how long your child will watch the movement.
These bubblers come in a variety of colors. You can often find them at tourist shops on holiday or vacation, and they make great souvenirs. Each one comes with two different color liquids and can be seen from either side of the small container. They stand about six inches high, and liquid collects at the bottom of the clear plastic. Once the liquid runs out, simply flip the container over and start the process all over again.
You can stick with the basic model where the liquid forms round drops and sinks to the bottom, where they collect again into a pool of color. Or you can get a more complex version where the bubble-like liquid rolls down ramps. Either way, kids will enjoy watching the movement. This quiet toy makes for great entertainment at home or on the go without any screens or batteries.
My youngest child loves these so much he has two. We got one on a trip last summer, and he decided he wanted a different one in his favorite color. He loves taking it to bed to watch the colors mix and flow. It helps him relax and focus after a busy day. He will also use it during the day just for fun, and often invites other family members to enjoy it with him. He likes to let the two different color liquids “race” to see which one empties faster, and it sparks lots of cool discussions about science and motion and more learning.
Choose your child’s favorite color and let the good times roll with this small and simple yet rewarding bubbler.
