It's Bubbletopia!!

That's what Evelyn was exclaiming loudly for the world to hear yesterday afternoon. We're coming attcha today with a little toy review, because boy did we stumble on a good one!

For the past two days I have been stuck at home all day with four kids while our van has been getting some tune-ups. I don't think I have to explain myself much here...desperation was setting in. It was time for operation distractification. I opened up the closet and pulled out the "Bubbles Inside Bubbles Sticks" which the kids had gotten in their Easter baskets this year. (You can find them on amazon, but we picked them up at Walmart for almost half the price!) It was the first day in quite a while that it wouldn't be too windy to use them, so we loaded them up with batteries and headed out for a brilliant afternoon on the back patio.

I don't know that I have ever seen all three of my big kids as engaged in the same toy as they were with these bubble blowers!

These little fans blow BIG bubbles, and just as the name suggests, they really do blow bubbles within bubbles, as you can see here:

Our kids squealed with delight at this!

Truly, we were causing quite a ruckus with all of the noise my children were making. They played and played with these things until we ran out of bubble solution and could play no more...

But that didn't stop Reagan. He managed to use up every last drop and played outside even long after his sisters did. That is amazing to me, in part because at 2.5 years old, he would never be able to get this much enjoyment out of bubble blowing all on his own. I think that's definitely part of the appeal of this toy for younger ones. They can make their own bodacious bubbles with just the press of a button. So cool!

I can assure you we will be racing out to buy a huge container of solution as soon as possible...or we may just make our own. But either way, I need supplies and you know...the van. I'm still stuck. Geez, I really hope that thing comes back tonight! :)

We highly recommend the Bubbles Inside Bubbles Sticks for summer fun at your house, too! You will not regret this purchase!

Also, today we send a huge THANK YOU to the kind soul that sent us a lovely card and gift cards to DQ for the kids to get some treats. (We WILL be using those when I can bust out of this place, haha.) We were bestowed a random act of kindness last week. Please know that we so appreciate you thinking of us, whoever you are. Soo sweet! We send our love right back to you - mwah!

Have a bubbly day!

I need to look in to one of these. Kinley uses the bubble wands as a sucker and eye poker.
