Kids and Big Kids, like me, go nuts over this thing!
Jerry F. Laffey
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 adults will be amazed by the size of bubbles.

I'm over 50 years old and, while visiting my Mother, I started playing with some bubble making toys she had left out for the kids. Bored, I started making some make-shift bubble wands out of coat hangers to see how big a bubble I could make. It was a lot of fun but, because of the 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 solution formulas and was eventually directed to "The Bubble Thing" book. The price was right so I bought it. 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. (She's not my boss or anything. I'm the Boss in my home, PERIOD!...I know this because she said I could be!)
Anyway, 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 two more books so that I don't go without everytime it's "borrowed" by my neighbors and friends...you know, to show their kids. ;)
This book is the best ten bucks you'll ever spend! Kudo's to it's author and inventor of the "Bubble Thing"! If you were to get paid a buck for every smile or shriek of laughter and delight created by your invention, Bill Gates would have to leave town.
Many thanks,
Jerry

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.

It's unbelievable how big of bubbles this thing will make. I have gotten a couple extras, and I give them to family members, or friends, cause their kids love it so much. It's easy to pick it up and start making bubbles, right away. It's also fun to figure out different techniques to get different results.

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 :-)
