BUBABLOON | Review
'The Fabric Balloon Cover For Babies & Children'
BUBABLOON, a new company I found on Twitter, kindly offered to send me their product to review. The 'Bubabloon' looked like something both Bella and Reuben (and me and Ben!) would enjoy so I gladly accepted.
The Bubabloon is a funky material cover for a regular balloon. It comes in assorted fun patterned fabrics. This cool case makes the balloon safer for play by preventing it from popping. It allows the child to enjoy balloon play without the danger element. If the balloon dues magically pop, it's inside the fabric so no there will be no nasty injuries.
I watched their promo video which makes them look so much fun for all different ages. The video even shows children bouncing on the Bubabloons without them popping. This I just had to see!
Bella (very nearly three years old) was very intrigued when it arrived. 'What's that Mum, what's that Mum? It's a balloon!'. She really was excited enough by the packet of plain balloons which were included! We were sent a fabulous bright turquoise blue Bubabloon with fun polka dots. Coincidentally, this was the perfect choice for us as it matches our accent colour in the living room!
You simply insert a balloon into the opening of the fabric, blow it up, tie a knot (or two as I do), hide your knot under the fabric & voilà, you have a Bubabloon!
These really are just as fun as the video! They stay super light like a balloon so the effect of balloon play is not lost at all. You can bounce it, throw it, bash it, anything you like! Bella went wild rolling around on the rug bouncing on it and trying to balance lying on it, having an absolute whale of a time! It was hard to get a picture as she was having so much fun!
I was a little sceptical of how good this product would be, but it's actually amazing. Bella has been jumping up and down on the balloon for a few days now and it's amazingly not popped. It's like a super bouncy mini space hopper! I'd absolutely love to fill a room with these like their promo video. It would be the ultimate kids party for many ages. Everyone loves balloons and these make them even better!
It's so lightweight I've been able to pop it on Reuben's belly (now 8 weeks old) and let him touch it without fear of a balloon bursting in his face. He loves looking at the bright contrasting pattern. In a couple more weeks I'm sure he'll be holding it and bashing at it by himself.
So Bubabloon, thank you for sending me this great item, and yes I am super impressed! It's a really fab idea which gives hours of fun for a variety of ages. I'm sure it will be enjoyed in our household for years to come! Fab!
