How many times have you watched your little one happily playing with a balloon and then put it in their mouth. Your heart skips a beat as you wait for the inevitable bang in their face. I remember Ben at about 8 months old at Finley’s Christening crawling around on the floor and a balloon popping in his face – surprisingly he didn’t even react but I often thing that sort of experience could be the sort of thing which caused a life long phobia of balloons!
The BUBABLOON is designed to alleviate the risks associated with balloons by providing a fabric cover which keeps the light, floaty, bouncy effect of a balloon whilst protecting little ones from popping and the threat of choking.
The BUBABLOON is super easy to use – you just pop the balloon in through the opening and then inflate as usual before tying a knot and slipping that inside the cover. It also reduces the risk of over inflating the balloon as the cover provides resistance and means you know when to stop!
The moment I gave Amy the BUBABLOON she was entranced by it shouting “ball, ball” and throwing it around. Of course with it being a balloon there was no real risk of it damaging anything in the house which meant I was quite happy for her to throw it and kick it – something which wouldn’t of course be possible with a ball!
What we love about it:
* It makes playing with a balloon a whole lot safer
* The balloon will last far longer with the risk of it popping significantly reduced
* The tactile fabric
* It comes in a wide range of colours and designs to suit every taste
* It retains it’s balloon like qualities – the bouncy floatiness!
* The cover is machine washable
* It comes in a handy little pouch so could easily be kept in your bag for those times when you just need a ball!
* It works just as well inside the house as out.
* It encourages physical activity & develops gross motor skills
What we’re not so keen on:
* Nothing! Genuinely! I really didn’t think I’d be that bothered by the BUBABLOON but it’s ace!
Amy is a big fan of her BUBABLOON and I’m sure it won’t surprise you to know that Ben had his hands on it the moment he got home from school!
The cover is priced from £10.99 and is available exclusively via www.BUBABLOON.co.uk
