Tesco Bubble Wand
Advantages: Hours of fun, cheap
During the summer months, we spend most weekends at the seaside so out of season, I normally stock up on toys to keep down there.
Last years, Tesco's were selling most of their outdoors toys off really cheap and I managed to pick up several of these bubble wands for around 75p each.
This is a long plastic tube, it is brightly coloured yet see through so you can see how much fluid is left in.
It has a screw top lid which is a different colour to the tube.
Altogether, the wand measures around 4cm but is quite slim so it doesn't take up much storage space.
*Price and availability*:
They are available in store and online and the price is currently £2. Most supermarkets and toy shops tend to have their own version at a similar price.
*How to use:*
Un-screw the top, the wand (the bit which makes the bubbles) is attached to the lid so you haven't got to stick you hand in and get fluid all over them.
There is no blowing involved, simply wave the wand about and out come the bubbles, I have found also that if there is a slight bit of wind, then you can just hold the wand in the air and the wind will make bubbles on its own.
I absolutely love these but more importantly, so does Lauren.
We normally take these up to the beach with us so that there is lots of open space, Lauren will constantly chase these and try to burst them. It is actually quite funny to watch and also tires her out!!
I have found with bubbles, sometimes you have problems creating the bubbles as the strength of the fluid isn't right but I would say I have brought about 8 of these now and all have been great - perfect bubbles every time!
The fluid also lasts quite a long time, a wand will normally last about 1 week if used everyday.
You can also re-fill them yourself with washing up liquid and water but I have found this is a bit hit and miss if you don't get the consistency right and because the are only a couple of pound each, I tend to just buy new (or open another one as I like to stock up out of season).
Overall, I would recommend these bubble wands, hours of fun at a good price, 5 out of 5 stars from me!
