No bubbles! Oh Fubbles, :( **UPDATED**
on April 10, 2014
We were so excited to bring this home and play with. When your bubble wand blows bubbles it's great. Key word is WHEN it seems as I have gone two days without producing a single one. We switched from the bubble solution we already had to the sample that came with our bucket (toys r us) and that didnt help either. I can see how others still find it to be messy as the wands do drip a ton of soap. And i can see how it can be hard to open, we just did one solution switch and theres not much to hold onto for leverage on the top. If I could get bubbles from it it would still be worth it with a 20 month old around. We followed the prep instructions and the wands must be primed by now as I have given each wand a go at least 100 times a piece! Only one (fantastic) burst of bubbles for all the effort. Back to our cookie cutters (someone misplaced our other wand) and tray (can we say mess!) until we can try again. Anyone have any suggestions? We'd love to get this thing cranking! Want to give it 5 stars!
I just wanted to say I had fantastic customer support from Teresa at Fubbles (littlekidsinc.)
Fast and detailed help was what we got when we submitted and email asking for suggestions before we returned our bucket.
Basic but it seems to have done the trick.
I REwashed the components (wands too!) in super hot sudsy water. I really have it a good go since I thought I did pretty good the first time. And so far that seems to have worked!
The bucket is a blessing if you have toddlers about and now that we are consistently producing bubbles we couldn't be happier!
I was happy to give them our business and even happier that they wanted to and deserve to keep it!
So our bucket continues to be more of a pain then anything else. I dutifully hot wash all the pieces in soapy water once they collect any dirt and grime.
We get amazing bubbles for a while (like a dozen blows) and then they are hit and miss, heavy on the miss!
I love the idea and I would like to say it is just my bucket but our smaller ones are the same way!!
We are using their solution.
I may try their customer service again as it was truly fantastic. But honestly I shouldn't have to work so hard for a bubble!
Love the idea (and it's as no-spill as it could possibly get)
Love the customer service.
Love the number of bubbles it makes when it decides to work.
One star for each :)
