ELC Bubble Mix - 227ml
Advantages: Wand on outside, perfect solution
Disadvantages: Wand being on outside can cause bottle to become sticky
Since discovering Early Learning Centre have an Amazon shop, I have been buying more and more of their products as they are eligible for Amazons free super saver delivery, it makes it more inviting than paying for delivery on the website! One thing I've purchased are these bubbles. Some people may think I'm crazy for buying bubbles online when you can find them available to buy all over the place but Early Learning Centre bubbles really are something special are worth paying that little bit extra.
These bubbles currently cost £1.50 for a 227ml bottle, a larger bottle and a pack of six mini bottles are also available to purchase. They all have the same design, same solution, just different sizes, I can say this out of experience as we have had the pack of six bottles for party favours before. As they are Early Learning Centre bubbles they can only be purchased instore or online from Early Learning Centre or Mothercare and online from Amazon.
As I ordered this from Amazon, I didn't know what colour bottle we would receive. It didn't really matter though as they are all neutral colours, if you have a boy you'll be rest assured that there are no pink coloured bottles! We received the green bottle with a red lid and blue wand, happy days. The bottle is quite unique compared to regular bubble bottles, it is very curvy, this means it's easy to have a nice grip without it feeling uncomfortable in your hand. It also makes it easier for younger children to hold too.
The best thing about the design of the bottle is the wand. It is located on the outside of the bottle and when it's not in use, clips on to the flower shaped holder which runs all the way around the neck of the bottle. I always make sure I give the wand a quick rinse before securing it back in place after use as it can leave the bottle a little sticky if it is has still got some of the solution dripping from the wand. It is designed so tht it gets wider the nearer it gets to the end, so the end you hold you wand is a lot wider meaning it's easy to grip it whatever size hands you have.
The solution of the bubbles is a lot better quality than the cheaper bubbles you can buy everywhere. After dipping the wand you are pretty much guaranteed that bubbles will come after out you give them a blow, only a couple times have I experienced the solution just popping in the wand without dispensing any bubbles. Each gentle blow will create a lot of bubbles, the bubbles are normally of a good size and do last well without popping if my daughter isn't trying to pop them. If the bubbles do pop on my daughter and her clothes, they don't leave any marks nor do they leave marks on surfaces that they pop on.
I would, without a doubt, recommend these bubbles. The quality is the best quality for bubbles I have come across, and the wand being located on the outside of the bottle stops you from getting sticky fingers trying to retrieve the wand left in the solution. All in all, excellent bubbles.
Summary: Fantastic bubbles!
