The New Toy

Yes, it's a plastic "junk" toy. I know I grump about them and how we shouldn't buy them for our kids.

But it's a bubblemaker! It makes lots and lots of bubbles, and I love bubbles.

The Sprouts even like it, even though Little Sprout is more interested in sticking her fingers inside to figure out how it works.

I am glad that Big Sprout isn't too old to chase the bubbles.

The whole backyard area looked like a fairyland with all the beautiful multicolored bubbles floating all around. Even the wind didn't stop this machine. Definitely worth the $9 I spent on it.

Can I come and play in the bubbles too?!? I love bubbles! They are so simple, shiny, and fairy-like!

Of course you are always welcome to come and play with our bubbles! They are cheap, easy, and so much fun!!!!

*grin* Oooh, looks like they had fun!!! I actually had to click on the pic with the machine shown, so I could see what it looked like. (I actually thought maybe it was a bubble-machine shaped like "The Mystery Machine" from Scooby Doo, but in the close-up I see that's not the case.)

Glad they were outside having fun on a nice spring day!!!

Nothing says "spring" like bubble blowing! Looks like your sprouts are having a blast!

If Crunchie won't grant you absolution for the bubble machine barefoot, just let me know...
