AD | Gifted
It’s been just over a week since the country went into a sort of lock down and staying at home became the new norm. If, like me, you are used to going out every day, your child going to school or nursery, amongst other regular day to day tasks then you might be struggling by now. Between trying to home school Erin, keep the house clean and look after my own mental health it can all seem to get a bit too much sometimes.
We are very lucky to have a pretty large back garden and although it might not be pretty or perfect, it’s a safe space for us to enjoy right now. I know not everyone has this luxury but we intend to make the absolute most of it, especially while the weather is so nice. Can you imagine all of this happening in the middle of winter?
Being confined to the house or garden most of the time means having to be creative with things you already have or to find toys for children that are not only affordable but that will last longer than 30 minutes. Something Erin has loved for as long as I can remember is bubbles so we were really excited when a bundle of products from Gazillion Bubbles arrived for Erin.
It was quite hard for Erin to choose what to play with first as we were sent so many great products. Something I’d always wanted when Erin was a baby was a big bubble machine as our Baby Sensory class used one quite often. So, we set up the Gazillion Bubbles Tornado Machine (after digging around for some spare batteries) and Erin couldn’t wait to see what it did. This machine can give out 4500 bubbles in just a minute and I know Erin wasn’t expecting this! She was a little shocked when we first turned on the machine.
It was great fun to run around the garden chasing the bubbles but it was also fun watching them blow over the fence for other people to enjoy. At times like this, a little happiness and fun can go a long way!
Erin was most excited about the next product, the Gazillion Megabubble Blaster as she had used something similar at a birthday party back in September. This is another one that needs batteries (not included) and Erin got quite impatient while we were setting it up. What’s really great is that these Gazillion toys come with a bottle of solution so you don’t need to buy that extra.
With the Gazillion Megabubble Blaster you can screw in the solution bottle to give continuous bubble fun. We did find that if the bubble solution gets shaken and too ‘bubbly’ inside the bottle then it does affect how the fun works which was quite frustrating for Erin. The trigger was also a little hard for Erin to keep down but once she figured out how to do it with 2 hands it was much easier for her.
The product I was most excited about was the Gazillion Incredibubble Wand as I’d never really seen anything like it before. This one comes with a large round tray with a wand to match and again, comes ready with a bottle of giant bubble solution. We sadly tried this for the first time on a pretty windy day and it just didn’t work. As soon as we lifted the wand out of the solution the wind blew it away.
Although we had to wait for a calmer day to play with the Gazillion Incredibubble Wand properly it really was worth it. The bubbles are huge and instead of just being a regular round bubble, these can be made into long tubes instead. We had lots of fun getting the hand of getting the wand to work properly and also going from making singular bubbles to long ones!
With weeks of being stuck at home ahead of us we are so much better equipped for some fun in the garden. The 2 litre bottle of Gazillion Giant Bubble Solution will keep our bubble fun going and help us to enjoy the fresh air and being outside as a family.
