A bottle of bubbles provided several minutes of enjoyment when I was a child. The same can be said as an adult– I still have a blast playing with them today.
As with most toys and ideas from the past, creativity always rears its, well, creative head and finds a clever way to remake a classic toy. Crayola has taken the simplicity of bubbles, added a splash of color and incorporated a launcher to do all the work for you. Say "hello" to the Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubble Launcher.
The Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubble Launcher suggests it's appropriate for ages 5+. In all honesty, my son is 10 and he was over it after a few minutes of play. I think the concept for this toy works best with younger children. They will most likely find it cool to crank the handle and watch bubbles spew out of the opening. The older children, or at least my child did, may not be so impressed.
We first used the Unmellow Yellow color and this is how is showed up on Kaden's hand and hoodie:
- Dress for Mess. Wear washable play clothes and shoes. It's best to not wear suede, leather or any other material that can't be washed.
- Play Outside. An open grassy area is best away from new concrete, decks and porous surfaces like marble. Don't use at formal events like weddings.
- Rub skin to remove color.
- Launder clothes promptly with water and detergent. Repeat washing may be needed.
- Hose off outdoor surfaces like sidewalks and driveways to wash away color.
We're okay with "messy play", but if this isn't your bottle of bubbles, we suggest you stick to the classic type. However, if you and your family are down for some colorful, messy play, I have just the giveaway for you.
