Bubble Machine £6 @ The ELC

14 August 2011

Bubble machine The ELC (that's the Early Learning Centre) has reduced the price on this bubble machine from £12 to £6. We got one of these when my son was about one years old. It is really love to have a machine making bubbles, especially for smaller children. They can spend ages chasing them!

From my experience though, these are best used in an outside area. Lots of bubbles coming out quickly turn the floor quite slippery! Outside where you've got a bit of a breeze to spread the bubbles around, and a surface like grass, works well. Best of all is in a park if you're having a big picnic.

I did find that you need to fill it up with a good amount of bubble mix, or it doesn't pick it up too well. Also, I got the giant ELC bubble mix with mine, and I have to say I wasn't that thrilled with it. Actually the best bubble mix I've come across so far has been Tesco's own brand!

The bubble machine has a handle, to make it easier to carry. It runs  for approximately 1 hour when used with 12 fl oz of ELC bubble solution, which you'll have to buy separately. The machine is available in pink and blue. You'll have to invest in four C batteries to run the Bubble Machine. It says that it's not suitable for children under 36 months due to small parts.

Thanks to bexjking at HUKD!

    Can you not just mix up some washing up liquid and water to use with this? That's what we always did when I was young.

    sure you can. no idea what the right measurements are though. I asked the bubble guy at the science museum once. He said that you can only really do it now with Original Fairy Liquid (not any of the other Fairy liquids).

What do you think?
