Our class had the chance to play with and review the Fobbles bubble machine (fobbles.com). It is a machine that blows bubbles, and when you pop them, fog comes out of the bubbles. It was so much fun!
To work this, first the Fobbles bubble fluid goes into a cup in the back of the machine. To start it up, you need to plug it in and wait a few minutes for it to heat up. When the red light on the remote goes on, it is ready.
When we tried this, bubbles started exploding all over the place, and everyone in the class was laughing. Classmate Grady commented, “When the bubbles pop, the steam flows into the air and makes it look like fog.”
We really recommend using a fan with this machine. The fan blows the bubbles higher and makes them fly everywhere. Without the fan, the bubbles fall to the ground, and that will just cause the floor to get slippery. Classmate Ella had a good idea. She said, “It would be better to do this outside, but make sure you have a cord long enough to plug it in.”
The one part that we didn’t like is that the machine did not make bubbles continuously. It would go on for 30 seconds, stop and then go on again. It does come with a timer and a control unit, but we didn’t hook that up. We just played in the bubbles.
As classmate Emily said, “All you need to have fun are the bubbles.” And we agree.
