Crayola Outdoor Bubbles Gift Pack Giveaway : (Ends 3/24)

I remember when Crayola came out with the Colored Bubbles and I thought they sounded pretty neat. However after reading some reviews regarding the mess they caused I decided maybe they weren’t for us. What I am excited to say is a company as big as Crayola LISTENED to mom’s and changed their advertising strategy and packaging on these bubbles and for that alone I am excited to give them a try.

Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles aren´t ordinary bubbles. Because they contain color, they´re messy and will leave temporary colorful marks on skin, cotton and cotton-blend clothing and intended outdoor surfaces. This took some moms by surprise when they used the product last year. They loved the idea of bubbles in different colors, but weren´t expecting them to be messy. We quickly acted on parents´ feedback and created a new version that keeps all the fun for kid and makes clean up easier for parents. Color magically rubs off skin, hoses off of many outdoor surfaces and washes out of cotton and cotton blend clothing.

Crayola gave me some great tips before I broke open the package to give this unique product a try.

  • Dress for Mess. Wear washable play clothes and shoes. It´s best to not wear suede, leather or any other material that can´t be washed.
  • Play Outside. An open grassy area is best away from new concrete, decks and porous surfaces like marble. Don´t use at formal events like weddings.
  • Rub skin to remove color.
  • Launder clothes promptly with water and detergent. Repeat washing may be needed.
  • Hose off outdoor surfaces like sidewalks and driveways to wash away color.

Our bubbles arrived right before we went on vacation so we didn’t get a chance to try them out until recently. I had a terrible time trying to take some photos. We first tried them right before we left, and Honey found the bubble launcher a little hard for her to get the bubbles going. I did like that you change the handle from left or right side which is great for my left handed son. I think she just couldn’t get the speed up fast enough to get the bubbles going at a steady stream.

I took over and was able to do so easily. They may have a bubble launcher that is battery operated but if they don’t I would prefer this option for my six year old which is closer to the age that would be using this product. The bubbles did come out colored. We received purple, pink, and yellow. Honey loved the colors but when I told her they stain she got all upset when one landed on her toes.

We tried the bubbles again when we returned from vacation. I will admit I didn’t “read” the directions because the operation seemed pretty self explanatory so maybe I missed how to take care of the bubble launcher. Either way we could not get it to work again. It may be the bubble solution and not the machine because when I tried to blow bubbles with the same solution myself they would not work. So it may be that you need to keep your bubbles tightly closed for them not to “spoil”. I did manage to get this quick shot of Honey, wearing a large white shirt of mine, blowing the yellow bubbles.

I think that the thought of colored bubbles is pretty cool. I think this would be must fun during a pool party where the kids are getting wet and running around the yard. For everyday running outside and blowing bubbles and trying to catch them you might be better off sticking with regular bubbles. I would LOVE to see a the large wands to see really big colored bubbles that would be pretty fun to see!
