Tesco Bubble Wand
Having plenty of outdoor toys around for the kids is somewhat of an essential in our house come the summer. If you have read any previous reviews I have written, you will be aware of the fact that we have an extensive range in our garden shed for the garden, beach or for picnics. I am always on the lookout for items to add to our collection. I was in Tesco a few weeks back, a place I don't often frequent, and discovered the outdoor play aisle. They had a huge selection of toys but my boys opted for these wands. I was not myself convinced but I conceded.
My sons are ten and three and both have had a great deal of fun from the wands. On arriving home the first priority of my boys was to open up the bag with said wands in. The wands are not packaged, they simply have a tag attached via a shiny elasticated string. Which pleased my youngest who has very little patience for unwrapping over packaged toys, this is also a bonus for anyone environmentally aware. There were an array of colours, I cannot recall them all but know my boys selected a yellow one and a blue one. The wands are a simple design made of plastic, the tube is translucent and the handle is of the chosen colour, the handle twists off easily for little hands so does not require constant requests for help, not that I mind but it's nice for children to feel they are able do things themselves. When the handle is removed from the tube there is a large flexible hoop attached which you dip into the tube which has a thick bubble mixture inside, you can buy refill bubble mix also from Tesco for about £1-2.
The idea is that you move the hoop around in the air to create large bubbles, my oldest could do this with ease, but my youngest tended to get carried away and moved the wand too fast and had to be coached in order to be able to create bubbles, he was frustrated at first, but soon mastered it and was extremely proud of himself. The other children in the street soon came over to join in the fun and they all had a fantastic time using them. My youngest did require supervision as he thought tipping the bubble mix on the floor and jumping in it seemed a better option...lol!
The wands are sturdy and have at points been used as swords etc. and are still in pretty good shape and are still able to be used to make bubbles. Kids imaginations never cease to amaze me and these wands have been in sword fights and used as makeshift guns. My kids have really enjoyed these and I'm really pleased I bought them. They only cost a little under £2 each and I was not expecting them to last more than a few hours, but nearly three weeks later and they are still going strong. Well worth the price and will possibly be stocking up for next year in the sales(if there are any available).
A fun, simple and cheap toy that everyone can enjoy. Take on picnics or use in the garden its fun for both. However not ideal for the beach in my opinion as the bubble mix is pretty sticky and would not mix well with sand...lol!
