Messy but clean fun!
LTAC
This giant bubble wand works like a charm, but you'll want to make your own solution or buy it in bulk as giant bubbles take lots of it!

Kids and Big Kids, like me, go nuts over this thing!

I'm over 60 years old and, while visiting my Mother, I started playing with some bubble making toys she had left out for the neighborhood kids. Bored, because of all the small bubbles, I started making some make-shift bubble circles out of coat hangers to see how big a bubble I could make. It was a lot of fun, but, because of the weak bubble solution, I was limited to bubbles of about a foot in diameter. I went on-line to try and search out some "secret" bubble formulas and was eventually directed to "The Bubble Thing" book. The price was right so I bought one. I did not know at the time that it came with a "Bubble Thing". My God!...I was making these HUGE bubbles in my living room, four and five feet across before my wife walked in and stopped me. (It's not like she's the boss, I am, in all matters...Ok, Ok, that's only because she said I could be.) Now, everywhere I go with my "Bubble Thing", I'm the undisputed center of attention. Kids and Big Kids, like me, go nuts over this thing! It's amazing and incredibly fun. I've had to order many more over the years, three or four at a shot, because I need to keep one for ME at all times. When the weather's right, and the mood strikes, I really like to break mine out. It's incredible to watch these giant bubbles glistening in the evening light, floating over my neighbors homes. Ha! My only problem is I can't seem to say no when a relative's or friend's son or daughter beg to take mine home with them. So I'd advise you to watch out for glassy eyed kids staring at your Bubble Thing or you get the, "Can I borrow that for my party next week", or "I'd love to use that for my kid's show and tell", or a hundred other reasons I hear for taking my Bubble Thing home with them.Read more ›

Book is thorough and well-written, easy to follow, and inspires you to create awesome bubbles! The toy that comes with it is wellmade and works great! Kids absolutely love it! Easy to do. Fun for all ages. Amazing "thing"; not easy to duplicate, so get the book!

I am envious of the other reviews. I worked at this for several hours, let the solution sit overnight as recommended, etc. No deal - probably 3 volleyball sized bubbles in 4 hours? I could do that with a coathanger and standard bubble mix. I gave up, not trying to make a career of this after all, and the kid next door monkeyed with it for a few hours too. I live north of SF by an hour, cant imagine that the climate was significant barrier, but who knows... I may even try it again, not a huge investment. Hope your luck is better than mine.

I purchased one years ago, and just purchased 3 for my company to have for the annual family picnic. They work great - with practice. Patience and a gentle touch are required.

We love the Bubble Thing. We have had one for at least 6 years and our boys love when we take it out to play. (The boys are now 20 and 17.) Every 4th of July we have a picnic at my mother's house and the Bubble Thing comes with us. Everyone from the grandparents to the youngest cousin plays with it. The reason we bought a new one is that the old one cracked. We hope to have this until we have grandchildren.

I bought this for my daughter's birthday party. Everyone from ages 5-50 enjoyed the thrill of making giant bubbles. No moving parts, no batteries. Just pure and simple fun. The bubble recipe works like a charm.

So I love blowing bubbles with the kids. I have been looking for a replacement for one that was amazing at blowing huge bubbles that wound up broken last year. This one sort of fits the bill. I can get it to work really well, but my significant other couldn't get it to work for him. Of course my almost two year old wants to try but it is way to big for him.

The bubble recipe that comes on the packaging works really well, it is 16 cups water, 2 cups dawn dish soap, and 2 tablespoons Baking POWDER.

It is straight forward with instructions on the package, and for 10 bucks worth a shot. Not good for days when there is any wind. But still has a good wow factor when you get the hang of it!

A fun toy but a lot of work for parents. Have to mic the solution (not hard, but still) and its really too hard for any child under 10 or 11 to use on own. My kids had a lot of fun with it for about an hour then moved on and after throwing solution away, washing bucket, I surreptitiously hid so they'd forget about it. It's a great toy, but takes more commitment than I have :-)
