Imagine blowing hundreds a minute without being out of breath! Get yourself a bubble machine. It is so easy to use and believe it or not provides hours of fun! Makes a great gift for your favorite 1-3 year old. (Although older kids enjoy it too.) They cost between $10 and $25 and last a season or two. I usually place it out of the kids’ reach, because if they tip it over all of the bubbles spill out and gunk up the fan. You can clean it out and let the fan dry, but it takes a while and interrupts the fun. Other than that there is no maintenance required. It’s also easy to travel with. Bring it to the park and be the hit of the day! Pour in some bubble solution and watch them giggle, run and pop!
