Unfortunately we haven't had one live more than a week or so - we don't overfill it, we clean it with each use, we store it indoors, we replace the batteries to verify that isn't the issue, etc.
They simply aren't durable.
So I did some research and experimenting and came up with this replacement. Buy a big container of regular bubble stuff (I got a 100oz Miracle Bubbles) and a 4oz bottle of Glycerin (available in the soap / skin care section of drugs stores - but not all of them (Walgreens did not have it, I found mine in CVS, little plain brown bottle Dump the entire bottle of glycerin into the Miracle Bubbles. Mix gently (don't shake vigorously). Do this a day or two in advance of using for best results (the glycerin needs to age a little) - however I did use it right away and did pretty well. Voila - 100oz of replacement bubbles for cheap rather than one tiny little bottle. Enjoy!
I haven't tested this in this product specifically, but it worked great in the Gazillion Bubblator we own.
The machine is nicely designed. The reservoir is one piece, molded, so it can't leak. The bubble solution doesn't get anywhere near the battery compartment or the motor. Only the reservoir & spinny wheel need cleaning, they slide right out for cleaning and securely back in. My only complaint is the nature of the design means that the reservoir needs at least an inch of fluid in it to work, any less than that won't make bubbles. So at the end of the day you might have to throw some out.
It does exactly what it's supposed to. Churns out tons and tons of bubbles! Just add 4 AA batteries and flip the switch on. I put a pic up in customer images.
The other people complained about being tied to the expensive Gazillion bubbles liquid. Not true!! This machine works with other brands including Super Miracle Bubbles (SMB) and some off-brand junk I found at the dollar store. The key is that it must be a viscous bubble fluid, not watery. When buying fluid, tilt the bottle and watch the way the fluid moves. If it moves like water, it won't work in this machine. But if it's a thicker fluid that moves more like maple syrup, it will probably work! In fact after we used up all of our Gazillion bubbles fluid, we refilled it several times with bubbles from a 64oz jug of Miracle Bubbles (about $5).Miracle Bubble Jar 64 oz
The first - this one, with an upright rotating set of bubble wands - worked relatively well, but stopped working after maybe a dozen uses. (Granted, one of those uses was for a few hours). When the level of liquid is low, the machine stops making bubbles since it has to pick up enough liquid to cover the wand.
We replaced it the next year with the Typhoon machine - this was awesome, produced a huge quantity of bubbles and worked more reliably since the bubble liquid is sucked up and put on the wands, no matter how low the supply of liquid. It has a large reservoir at the bottom so you don't need to fill it very often - it takes a lot of liquid though.
Our issue now is getting the liquid. Gazillion liquid does produce the best bubbles - they last well, etc. etc. etc. HOWEVER, very few stores stock the liquid, and except for when I first bought the first machine, no-one stocks large size bottles. Even the online vendors like toys.com who are supposed to have them, never have them in stock (I've been on their notify list for a long time!) I've ended up buying from someone in Canada on eBay - otherwise, buying the smaller bottles at ToysRUs, Target, etc. is just too expensive.
Both of these machines don't really work if you try other bubble liquids - other liquids (especially the cheaper kinds in very large size bottles) are much thinner and the liquid drips right off the wands before it has a chance to pass by the blower part to make any bubbles.
We're planning to start making our own bubble liquid and hopefully that will cover us. Otherwise, the machines are useless now.
It was really fun while it worked, though.

I would have given it 5 stars if it didn't tip over or slide all over the place from the motor vibrating. I does put out a ton of bubbles and my girls love it. Read morePublished 2 hours ago by Z. Duncan
