Fisher Price Bubble Mower
Advantages: Really sturdy toy, well built, kids love bubbles
Disadvantages: Mixture spills out quite easily
My little boy got this as a birthday present for his 1st birthday. My parents bought it for him and asked if it was OK, as it states from 2 years on the packaging.
I agreed with my parents that he would be supervised during use, and as his walking was already quite advanced for a child of his age he would be fine with this toy.
The box this toy comes in is quite large, I would say around 50cms long, 30cms tall and 20cms wide, if that makes sense.
It has a large picture of the bubble mower on the box and states for use from 2 years+.
When you open up the box it comes in a few parts (I wasn't there at the time so I can't specify what needs making up, however I believe it was a simple push and click effort needed).
It is made primarily of plastic and stands about 70cms tall when made up. It has a bottle of bubbles included so you can get started straight away.
To put the bubble mixture into the mower you attach the bottle to the plastic cap (which is attached to the mower with string), put the plastic cap into the well provided, push down and the mixture is drained into the mower.
We had awful weather for the first few days after making this so hubby decided the kids could play with this inside (my 3 year old couldn't wait to have a go!).
The first problem we found was that if you tip it over the bubble mixture spills out, if this is done on the carpet it's not too bad, however on the laminate flooring it creates a slip hazard. Now I can see why it says 2 years +, as a 2 year old would probably be steady enough on their feet they would not lean all their weight onto the toy and tip it up spilling the mixture.
However, my 1 year old is now able to get out in the garden with this toy and loves seeing the bubbles coming out, my 3 year old plays with this more to be honest which I thought would be the case. This toy is sturdy and I can see many years of use in the garden, the bottle of bubbles provided is made of quite strong plastic so it is refillable with other bubble mixtures so you can use the push down and fill method.
This currently retails at £19.99 and is available from Argos and other such places.
Summary: My kids love it, worth the £19.99 it cost!
