“So what makes the Wubble bubble ball so special? It’s made from top-secret super-thermo-stretch-tacular stuff that makes it squishy, squashy, super soft and lightweight and allows it to be inflated to a gigantic THREE FEET TALL. […] The best part is that the Wubble is fun to play with indoors or outdoors, all year round.” This is how the Wubble Bubble Ball website opened, so I thought, you know what, let’s do it.
Instead of getting this 3 foot ball, I myself, bought the ‘tiny’ version. The big ball costs anywhere from $8.99 – $19.99 without shipping and the tiny one is between $3.99 and $9.99 without shipping. I have played with both and honestly I have got to say that they are worth the money.
This bubble-like-ball is quick to blow up and extremely fun to play with. The large ball takes about 25 minutes to blow to its full size using the helium can and the tiny ball takes about 10 minutes or so using the blow tool. Before you can blow them up you have to put petroleum jelly on the hole and maneuver the selected blow up device in it, but after fighting it for a little while, I got the hang of it.
When it finally came to actually playing with the ball it was fantastic. This ball worked just like the website bragged it would! It floated around like a bubble but it didn’t pop and was more latex-feeling than anything. It was light weight and easy to throw, floating through the air like a bubble. I also may have thrown it at my almost-two-year-old nephew’s face and he just laughed and ran after it. This proves that the ball is fun for all ages. He’s two and loved it and I’m nineteen and loved it. I did find that if the ball is not blown up to it’s full capacity, wherever it’s not stretched due to being blown up, the ball will tend to fall in that area due the heavier weight in that place. Another little downfall of this ball is that the latex is a little tacky because it is stretched so far.
All in all though, this ball is extremely entertaining. You even get a pretty decent amount of excercise and laughs for only $19.99+ shipping and handling.
