Advantages: Good price, six bottles in a pack, instant fun, quality bubbles
Disadvantages: None in my opinion
We often look after our two nieces while their parents nip out to a doctors appointment and the like and the whole experience of being left can be a little traumatic at times for the little one if for only an hour. A good distraction that we have found is to buy a pack of bubbles from Tesco. Not only do they allow the girls to have a bit of fun out in the garden but they are also an inexpensive and less messy activity than finger painting indoors. Being that our nieces are now at the ages of three and one the youngest is obviously too young to hold a wand and blow through the holes but the oldest likes to blow blows streams of bubbles which the youngest will watch with wide eyes and giggle.
These bubbles are packaged in a set of six bottles from Tesco and will usually set you back around the £2 mark unless bought as part of an offer. For your money you get six various coloured bottles which are each quite small in size and fit easily into the hand of my three year old niece but are a little fiddly for my partners adult hands. The lids of the bottles pop off to reveal a small wand which is built into the lid of the bottle. A great feature of these bottles is the built in lid as it saves lots of rooting around in a bubbly mess trying to find the wand.
Once open the bottles are around two thirds full with bubble mixture which smells rather similar to that of original washing up liquid. In my experience the small size of the bottles is an added bonus as when the inevitable spill happens inside there is a fairly small amount of liquid to mop up.
As with any bubble mix this one should be used by simply dabbing the wand into the bubble mix and blowing gently through the hole of the wand. The wand will produce medium sized bubbles, however when we get into competitions in the garden there is usually a good deal of light blowing to see who can produce the biggest bubble. The mixture produces bubbles well and the mix is easily as good as any more expensive products I have used in the past.
Once you get going, the garden will be a sea of bubbles especially if you go the whole hog and open all six bottles in one go. This is a lovely sight for my little niece as the bubbles float their way around the garden creating little bubbles of iridescent light. With time however, they soon being to pop on all available surfaces. I find that whilst these bubbles can be used anywhere we prefer to use them in the garden to save little pools of bubble mix collecting inside although when it's rainy outside they inevitably get opened inside the house.
In my opinion these are a great way to have fun with our nieces and the great price of the bubble pots means that we are more than happy to buy them for the girls on a weekly visit and leave any unopened ones with them. However, for the amusement of my little niece I can find that I feel like I am forever blowing bubbles to make her laugh, hence the review title. I can see that the size of these bottles would also make them a great little gift at children's parties too. These are a nifty little treat and one that creates a lot of laughs I would therefore highly recommend them to you.
This product scores a good four stars out of five from me.
Thanks for reading! x
