Great fun for my kids
on July 5, 2015
My son LOVES this! We've been using it about a week now. The first day it arrived, the bubbles ran out almost instantly. It uses a LOT of bubble solution to run. So we tried making our own, after using up the rest of the solutions we had around here, but it didn't work with this gun well. The lights are the part my daughter loves the most.
We stopped using it for a couple days while we waited on the new bubble solution to arrive and refilled it today. It's already on it's 2nd filling of solution. It kinda seems like after awhile of use the gun starts to overheat some and slows down the bubbles. It could just be the cheap batteries it came with though.
If your child(ren) are old enough, I would suggest buying this: http://smile.amazon.com/Funrise-32417-Gazillion-Hurricane-Machine/dp/B000197NXM/ref=pd_bxgy_21_img_z but my children are 2 1/2 and 10 months old, so we got a gun instead. I assume older children would know not to knock into the bubble machine on the ground, but my kids wouldn't.
The attached pictures are from the solution it arrived with on the first day we used it. The bubbles have never shown such beautiful blue from the led lights with any other solution.
We've had this a couple weeks now. We bought 2. We only opened 1 to start with. I finally threw it out a couple days ago. It breaks EASILY! My kids drop it or knock it off the counter, it cracks. So much we were taping the battery compartment shut, but it finally wouldn't work taped shut, so we threw it out. The same day I opened the other 1, it was cracked a few hours later. Definitely not the best design for use with kids.
But, it's fairly cheap to replace and it's saving my asthma now that my kids LOVE bubbles and want them constantly.
