I received a sample of this product to facilitate my review, but my opinions are entirely my own.
While attending Blogger Bash this summer, I had the chance to check out Wubble Bubble Ball. I knew from the moment I saw it being bounced around the room, that Avery would LOVE it! While we were away on vacation, we received a Wubble Ball to try out! Little did I know, Avery already knew about this thing. While at Target (buying the 4 D batteries that the Wubble pump requires) she spotted the package and did the “please, please, please, I need this, I want this so much, please mommy, buy this!” dance in the aisle.
I knew that she’d be so thrilled when we got home, and she learned that she had a Wubble waiting for her!
Have you heard of Wubble Bubble Ball? Well, it’s pretty much the hottest toy right now! So hot, in fact, Target selected the Wubble™ Bubble Ball as a 2014 Top Toy for the Holiday Season! It is also a Family Fun Toy Of The Year Award Winner, and has won numerous other toy awards, including an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Award, a National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, a Mr. Dad Approved Award, a Parent’s Choice Award and the Dr. Toy Best 100 Picks Award and more!!
Avery couldn’t wait to play with this! She was adorable, thanking me over and over. I think this brought her more joy and excitement than our trip to Disney World! She kept saying “Is it done yet? Ready yet? Can I play now? Please let me play now?”
It took about 3 minutes to inflate, which is about 7,569 hours in Toddler Time. While I didn’t have any trouble inflating the ball, if you do you may find this video about “How to Inflate a Wubble Ball” helpful: http://youtu.be/
After inflation it was time to play!!! While the temperature outside here in New England, was PERFECT today, our yard wasn’t really “Wubble Bubble Safe” Sticks, and leaves and who knows what else (like “gifts” from Daisy) are strewn about our yard, so I allowed Avery to play ball in the house!
While Avery loved throwing and bouncing the Wubble Bubble, her favorite was when I would bounce her on top of the ball itself, or when I’d help her to sit on it(or IN it!)
Avery wanted Daisy to come play too, but A) Daisy was completely terrified by this giant bubble, and B.) While Wubble Bubble Ball is incredible, it is not indestructible. It CAN pop. So always use common sense to keep your Wubble safe. Don’t over inflate (They provide a handy guide so you know when you’ve reached max inflation) Do not leave your ball outside in the elements. Deflate your Wubble when it’s not in use, and do not poke your Wubble with anything sharp!
The great news is, if somehow, you do accidentally pop your Wubble, they have a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee! You just need to cut the Wubble logo from the ball, and mail it back (they provide an envelope in the package!) They’ll send you a brand new Wubble Ball for just the cost of shipping and handling!
I really love the Wubble Ball and here’s why:
- It’s safe and fun for Avery to play with. If it bounces and hits her in the face, it’s totally painless. In fact, she thinks it’s pretty hilarious when that happens!
- I can deflate it for easy storage, unlike the eleventy-billion other balls we have bouncing around this house!
- That Lifetime Replacement Guarantee! I love the peace of mind that gives me, and love a company that stands behind their product!
- You can play with it indoors, or outdoors! It’s four seasons of fun!
- It’s fun for all ages! I was laughing hysterically, right along with Avery.
- It’s available at Target! Which is perfect since I’m there almost every day, I know I’ll be picking up a few of these for Christmas gifts!
As I mentioned, Wubble Ball is available at Target as well as Toys R Us and online at www.wubbleball.com.
