When I was 8 years old…
I was given a bubble wand for my birthday that looked exactly like the wand in this picture.
I had this big, red, plastic bubble wand and a book of pictures of all these big bubbles and I wasn’t able to make a giant bubble with it.
I tried about 3 different detergents and nothing worked. So I gave up and the bubble wand lived on my special toy shelf until I was 14. I would occasionally give it another go with a different detergent and always got the same results – no bubbles. I was convinced it was all a joke and got rid of it.
And then…one fine sunny day in 2017, at the Hawkes Bay’s Steiner fair, I saw a man making these massive bubbles! My inner child burst with excitement and I had to buy a set for myself and my little boy.
Needless to say, it felt amazing and left us all in awe as we created these magical giant bubbles that floated for days over the Te Awanga sea.
I was finally living my childhood fantasy!
Our kids absolutely love it and the sheer joy on their faces as they watch and chase bubbles 3x their size is priceless!
