My kids were excited to review a new product called Juggle Bubbles. It can be seen on TV and is advertised as a “bubble activity kit featuring a no-pop solution that will allow your child to bounce, toss and juggle bubbles without the bubble bursting.”
As soon as the boxes came in the mail my kids were anxiously opening them up so they could play with them. We received two kits to review so each of my kids had their own pair of gloves to play together (when you order you get 2 kits for the price of 1 plus extra postage and handling).
My kids tried the bubbles right away, both inside and outside. Each Juggle Bubble kit includes a bubble blower, bubble tray, unique bubble solution and a pair of magic gloves to juggle and pass each bubble.
The activity kit requires you to dip the wide end of the Bubble Blower into the special solution, blow into the blower to create the bubble and then toss the bubble around or let it bounce off of your or your child’s hands with the Juggle Bubbles magic gloves.
We tried it as the instructions said – we dipped the bubble blower into the bubble solution, and then blew up the bubble to about baseball size. You’re supposed to wait about 10 seconds while holding it down, and then release it from the bubble blower.
Here’s a great video that shows how to make bubbles that you can juggle:
We blew up bubbles easily, but releasing it from the bubble blower was a bit tricky. We practiced some more and got a few bubbles to stay in our hand for a few moments or float in the air. Later we went to my daughter’s friend’s house and all the kids together were able to create some good bubbles that lasted a bit. Here my daughter’s friend’s brother created a good one that he could hold in his hand.
The bubble solution smelled a bit like bug repellent, but didn’t seem much different than bubble solution otherwise. The magic gloves fit kids’ hands well (though they were a little too big for our 3-year-old’s hands). They work best when they’re dry so after playing with bubbles a while they don’t work as well, but the kids liked using them.
Overall, I think Juggle Bubbles are fun for kids, especially those who love playing with bubbles (who doesn’t?). The bubbles take a little getting used to make them bounce like in the video and advertisements, but they can still entertain kids both indoors and out.
Juggles Bubbles are recommended for kids ages 5 and up. After observing kids of various ages trying them out, they can be fun for all ages but I would agree that Juggle Bubbles are best for kids ages 5/1st grade and up. The older they are, the easier it is for them to create longer-lasting bubbles.
Juggle Bubbles can be purchased for $10.00 plus shipping and handling and are available at www.jugglebubbles.com. (Shipping and handling cost $7.95 for the first kit, and $4.95 for the second kit.)
