How to Pick the Best "Bubble Machines" for Kids

1. Recommended Age

There are a few things to look at when picking a bubble making machine for your child. One of the most important factors is the ease of use. If you have a younger child then you’ll want to pick something that is lightweight and has a handle so that they will be able to move it around and operate it easily. You’ll also want to take into consideration any small parts that the machine may have. Some may not be suitable for children under the age of 3 due to possible choking hazards.

2. Weight

Some models are a bit heavy for a younger child. These types are suitable for parental use during a child’s birthday party yet not very convenient for a toddler to move around. The weight of bubble makers can vary anywhere from a couple of ounces for a hand-held bubble gun up to 5 lbs for a more heavy duty model.

3. Bubbles-Per-Minute

Bubble makers can make anywhere from a few hundred up to 1500 bubbles per minute. If you are looking to get a bubble maker for an outdoor party then you’ll probably want to go with one of the models that can produce up to 1500 bubbles per minute. On the other hand, this particular model may not be desirable for indoor use.

4. Bubble Solution Capacity

Bubble makers come with varying tank sizes. Many manufacturers will list the amount of solution that the bubble machine can hold at one time. If you do not want to spend all of your time refilling the bubble maker then I recommend you pick one that has a large solution capacity tank.

5. Power Options

Bubble maker machines are usually battery operated but some do have a wall plug-in adaptor. If you plan on taking your bubble machine away from home or want to be able to move it easily around the yard, then you may opt for a battery operated model or one that has both options. On the other hand, if you cringe at the thought of always making sure to have batteries on hand, then you may want to opt for a model that can easily be plugged in.

6. KMaterials

The majority of kids bubble making machines are made of a plastic material. You’ll want to make sure this it is not only durable but safe as well. Many manufacturers will list that their plastic material is consumer toy safety certified, and is ABS safe.

FAQs: All you need to know

Q What type of bubble machine is best for a toddler?

A Some bubble machines are designed to produce a large number of bubbles every minute, while others are a little more simplistic. The heavy duty models are aimed more for older children or family gatherings and not necessarily meant for a toddler to carry around or operate. If you have a 2 or 3-year-old you may want to consider a cute themed lightweight model with a handle that they can carry around the yard. While these types usually don’t produce the astounding 1000 or more bubbles per minute, they may make up to 500 per minute and will still produce huge smiles on their faces. Another option for those little ones is to get them a handheld gun style bubble blower. This type gives them total control over their bubbles without having to worry about a large bubble blowing unit.

Q What type of bubble machine would be a good choice for a party?

A If your having a birthday party or family reunion you may want to think about getting yourself a bubble machine to add some extra fun to the party. When trying to decide which one would be the best choice, you’ll want to consider the fact that you ‘ll have to watch and tend to it. You don’t want to have to spend all of your time refilling the bubble blower with bubble solution when you have more important things to tend to. Some models are designed to blow a continuous stream of bubbles galore for up to two hours. This would give you plenty of time to play with the kids and mingle with friends before having to refill it with more solution. If you really want to make a statement for your party then you’ll want to remember that more bubbles are better. Some bubble makers can produce up to 1500 or more bubbles per minute. Just imagine the joy of a yard filled with children, smiles, laughter, and bubbles galore!
