Kids love bubbles. They love making them, popping them and watching them. That’s why for the past three months, I have tried just about every homemade and store bought bubble recipe to find one that works and is inexpensive. It’s no fun to run out of bubble juice when kids are having fun (See Bubble Recipe post). I’ve also tried an assortment of homemade bubble wand methods: pipe cleaners, coat hangers, tin cans with both ends cut off, paper funnels, strainers, plastic food containers and a lot more. These wands worked great for a short while, but didn’t last. The cans rusted, the paper funnels got soggy, and the coat hangers were easily bent. I needed something that would last, so, I looked for store bought wands. They worked better, but they started at around $10 each. Again, this wouldn’t work with lots of kids. I kept searching the net for inexpensive wands that worked. I found them at http://www.bigbubble wands.com. I ordered a kit and tried them out. They worked. Then I got the idea to become a distributor for these wands. Just click on my Bubble Wand page for more information.
I guess that’s why I call this post ‘Bubble Trouble’. I never knew that my passion for getting kids outside would lead me to starting a business. I’m busier than every with working full-time with kids and getting my business off the ground. It’s exciting and exhausting. It’s fun to sell a product that provides such joy to young and old.
If you have any questions about bubbling and bubble wands, please let me know. I’d be happy to help you wand through the tangle of information on the web and elsewhere.
