But one of the coolest Gazillion Bubbles products that my sons and niece have played with was the Gazillion Bubble Rocket from Funrise. There was minimal set-up required. You just needed to assemble the rocket launcher (2 pieces) and the air pump that shoots the rocket (4 parts). They all connected together super easy. It comes with 8 ounces of Gazillion solution - so definitely buy more when you purchase the launcher! 8 ounces fills the solution holder about 2.5 times - and my 19 month old spilled it once! (Oi!)
The Bubble Rocket is for ages 6 and up, but that's because you need to be big enough to get enough force when launching the rocket! So when playing I would stomp on the launch pad to make the rocket fly! It was so cool! The force of the rocket launching from the pad would cause a trail of bubbles to be left behind! My boys loved it! It was perfect for a lazy summer afternoon to keep everyone entertained.
Older kids will like to try and catch the rocket as it lands - it is soft and light so no fear of bouncing off someone's head. I usually tried to catch it myself before it would fall on the dirty ground.
Here is a short video of us playing with the rocket.
What do you think? Pretty nifty! Plus it was a winner of the 2009 iParenting Media Award! Like I said, it would be great for a lazy summer day, family barbecues or even parties. Plus, it makes a great gift! My sons have been gifted bubble items a lot of times, and it is always appreciated to have something to play with outside!
