I am a big time bubbles fan, so I love new bubble play gadgets. This does not disappoint. The crew consisted of kids ranging in age from 2 to 40-something. (OK, technically I'm not a kid -- but hey, I play like one!)
The Bubble Turbine comes with two interchangeable bubble blower attachments, a dipping tray, and a 5 ounce bottle of Super Miracle Bubbles solution. Super Miracle Bubbles Premium Plus Solution comes in a 100% recyclable bottle.
The turbine mechanism takes two AA batteries, which the box says are not included, but ours was pre-loaded with starter batteries so it was instant bubble time.
The battery powered turbine is essentially a small wind turbine, a fan head that provides the blow portion of your blowing bubbles. You twist on one of the bubble wand attachments, dip it in the solution, and pull the trigger, which starts the turbine spinning, bubbles blowing, and fun happening.
The first attachment the Crew tried was the Oodles of bubbles attachment, not the official name but its what the Crew called it. This bubble blower head produces giant clusters of bubbles in a huge hodgepodge of sizes.
The second bubble accessory the Crew tried was the gargantuan bubble blower head, again not the official name for the attachment but it works. This piece releases mammoth, gigantic, colossal, massive bubbles! Besides being totally excited by the size of our bubbles, we got to watch them take flight. Our bubbles really got some serious airtime.
As the kids get a bit more daring, they can start to try some bubble tricks like In and Out Bubbles, Bend a Bubble, Bubble Go Round, Bagel Bubbles, Cluster Bubbles, and Bubble Snakes. It's all in good fun, and an excellent opportunity to chat about wind turbines, power and what makes bubbles float .
Play is the best way to encourage learning, and kids and adults will undoubtedly enjoy the bubble play and the time spent playing together.
