Who doesn’t like blowing bubbles? They seem to me to so free and uninhibited – well till they pop!
Now if you were offered a huge and I mean HUGE bubble to play with, wouldn’t you jump at the chance?
Well, the kids after seeing the advert for the Wubble ball, couldn’t wait to get one. Luckily for me, I was sent one to review.
If you have seen advertising about the Wubble ball you know it’s like a giant bubble that you can play with. How does it work though?
The Wubble ball pack comes with a ball and a pump which is quite handy. All you need to do is to connect the adaptor and then pump it up. It takes about 5 – 7 minutes to pump it up to the maximum height. You can pump it up to be smaller though. You can measure the maximum size by using the tape provided that can be attached to the adaptor and when it hits the floor, you need to stop pumping the ball with air.
It is quite big when pumped up as you can see from this picture.
It is transcluscent and feels like a rubbery bubble. You can bounce it although because of it’s size it is hard to manouvre. I think it is best if you don’t pump it up to full capacity.
This is also advisable so that the ball does not burst. You can punch it and bounce it (you may find this a bit difficult if it is full size) or play catch.
To deflate it, just insert the adaptor and let the air out.
The children love the Wubble ball. They play catch and since the ball is squishy and wobbly – they enjoy playing with it.
I was a bit disappointed with the ball though. The concept is excellent and it is something that appeals to all children but it is not very durable and our first one popped while my son was playing with it. Since it is so huge one tends to pinch it to catch it and I think he may have caught his nail on it and it made a tiny hole in it.
I feel that at it’s full size there is a danger of it bursting as though it does seem like it cannot be penetrated, it can burst if it falls onto anything with a point. (pretty much like any bubble).
We received a replacement and we play with it indoors and haven’t as yet taken it outside as I don’t want it to get a tear. I think the material could be a bit thicker to ensure that it doesn’t tear so easily. It is still going strong though and it’s been about a month now.
The Wubble Bubble ball from Vivid Toys and Games is priced at £19.99 and it provides a lot of entertainment for the children.
