With an eagle eye for anything that comes to our home for review, my son immediately spotted the Wubble Bubble Ball box. “Looks like a bubble, plays like a ball?” he read aloud. “What IS this and when do we get to open it?” Formerly an as-seen-on-TV exclusive, the Wubble Bubble Ball is now available at Target stores ($19.99 each) and could be the novel item that your family needs for outdoor fun to last until school starts again.
Measuring 3 feet across, the Wubble Bubble looks like a ball but really does behave like a bubble, floating and bouncing like a blown up bubble would but it’s a far more durable version that can handle rough and tumble play. Sit on it, squish it, toss it, and kick it. The Wubble Bubble may seem like something to be gentle with when you first pull it out of the box but it’s quite sturdy. Wubble is so confident that their product will last through play that it’s backed with a lifetime guarantee.
The Wubble Bubble Ball starts out small and inflates thanks to the included battery operated pump that unfortunately doesn’t come with its own batteries.
