We like this toy. There is nothing more engaging than gigantic bubbles. We had to tinker with the formula a bit and by the way dish soap kills grass. Add more baking powder every so often. Very impressive. A gift that you can play with your kids with and make a big impression.

This activity book comes with it all. The book includes the amazing bubble thing with instructions on how to assemble and use it and step-by-step instructions on how to make the best bubble mixture including which dish soap to use from around the world. There is also a history of bubbles, and also instructions on how to make super bubble toys and tools with common household items. It also has a chart on what are the optimal conditions for creating bubbles. Should provide hundreds of hours of fun.

Everybody loves it when I make bubbbbbbles with this! Oct. 19 2006
By Nic Prada - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I'm 44 yrs old and I got one of these for me years ago and I'm on my 3rd one at least. It's a huge hit at every single party with every age...EVERY AGE! Everyone loves it and the kids? you better have some time on your hands. The author gives a proven bubbbble recipe that works far better than any pre-made bubble solution you will find anywhere and there really are certain factors that make bubble making better. In the right conditions you can literally make bubbles the size of a car and much bigger with perfect conditions. It's all laid out in the book and well worth every single penny bt far! In lousy conditions, you'll make bigger bubbles than probably ever seen in your life. This is a perfect gift for anyone. I guarantee the rating on this won't go below a 5 and if it does, check the other ratings from the person who gives it less than a fiver. If this happens it will be from a bitter person with little joy inside so give that person some lovins'. Very few things in life are a lock for goodness and fun. The Bubble Thing is one of those. P.S. Do it in a manner that the soap that spills doesn't drop anyone and if done on concrete, asphalt, etc., hose down afterward. It's vvvvery slippery.

Excellent! Dec 4 2005
By Megan Romer - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
This book SHOULD be titled: How To Get Your Kids to Play Outside for the Entire Day Without Whining! Making (and chasing) giant bubbles will literally keep your kids pleasantly occupied for hours, and they'll wake up the next morning wanting to do it again. This book is a brilliant companion on a summer camping trip or to help the babysitter deal with your rowdy bunch. It makes a great gift and is well worth the relatively cheap price tag.

Another triumph from Klutz!

A Hit at Birthday Parties! April 5 2005
By Mrs. K. English - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
Next time you have a party, you'll want this smile-maker around. All ages love will break the ice because it is so unique everyone will want to try it. It does require the right conditions and lots of practice to get a humongous bubble, but just trying is the fun of it. The bubble on the book is a lofty goal in our opinion but inspiring nevertheless.

A long time fan and user says.... Aug. 6 2007
By LollieMc - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
I bought a bubble gadget YEARS ago and did make incredibly huge bubbles like the author claims is possible, and spent MANY hours playing with it, HOWEVER what changed is the dish soap used to make the bubble solution. Remember when all the dish soaps went "Ultra", as in ultra concentrated and grease cutting? Truly giant bubbles were forever ruined by this! I even called one of the big soap companies and begged them to sell the old recipe as "giant bubble soap", but they wouldn't do it. Maybe the author could use some of his "bubbleologist" (expert bubble maker) pull to persuade them? (Hint: the initals are J&J) I tried for so long to make good bubbles after the switch, but lost interest because they just didn't compare to the old version.

Great fun..even for adults Oct. 22 2011
By Stephen L. Collard - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I bought these for gifts after finding the older version at a garage sale. The bubble wands work great and seems to attract everybody. My friends laughed at me when I pulled my bucket of bubble solution and bubble wand out of the car, but as soon as they seen the size of these bubbles and the way they bend, stretch, deform and float around, they couldn't get enough. You can make gigantic bubbles with the wand, but you have to practice the release of the bubble. When you figure out the tricks(there are a couple)no one will be able to resist gawking for hours. Adults laugh at first, then remember how much they still love BUBBLES. If you use this at a park, you will have countless fans. The one thing that's a bit of a problem is the recipe for the bubble solution. I find that a 1 to 10 mixture is better than the recommended 1 to 12. Also, the bigger the bubble the harder it has keeping it's shape, but that can make for some great fun and wacky bubbles. No more than a light breeze will be needed to make most of the bubbles but especially the large ones. Any moderate gusts and they pop. The book has good background information but the recipe will need to be adjusted per your own experimentation. Have fun, I know I am.
