Ginormous Monster Bubbles - Works Every Time (Weather Permitting)
Reviewed in the United States on July 26, 2018
I've tried a variety of homemade bubble solutions, and was relieved to find that this one just seems to work. It's essentially hassle-free except for adding a little water to the solution in your own bucket or bowl. Even our toddler (age 2) granddaughter could blow bubbles after some practice (a gentle breeze helps a lot). The design of the wand makes it easy to hold onto, and the thick cord on the bubble wand is much less prone to tangling than other wands I've tried.
I'm hesitant to say whether the wand or the bubble solution is the key innovation in this product. We thought both were well-designed, and we've never tried this solution when it didn't provide lots of giant, beautiful bubbles.
Here's the process: Empty the contents of the pouch into a large bucket or bowl (a bucket that holds at least a half-gallon), then add a quart of water. Once out of doors, you simply dip the two-handled wand in the solution and then with one handle in each hand, you lift the wand away from the bucket spreading the wand handles apart so that a film of soap builds in the center "circle." If there is a breeze, the wind will do the work, but otherwise, you simply move the wand through the air so the bubbles will form. I found that I could "close" a long, tubular bubble by moving the handles back together.
Giant bubbles aren't rocket science, but this kit takes a lot of the "guesswork" out of the whole process. It helps if you understand a little bit about "bubble physics," which may have been the issue for some that have given the product a 1-star review. Bubbles are simply water molecules encased in a film of soap, so if the water evaporates quickly, the bubbles aren't going to last. This isn't an issue with the quality of the product, it's an issue with the weather. Bubbles will last longer and float higher under more humid conditions. If humidity is very low and the outside air is very dry, you're going to have trouble with any bubble solution, so keep that in mind. A really stiff wind may also make this experience sub-par.
I've had enough luck with this kit that I've started giving it away as a birthday present. For your own home, you'll want to purchase some refill packs as well, since you'll use this a lot at family barbecues, birthday parties, and afternoons at the park or beach.
