It’s summer and that means my boys are home full-time. We try to break up the day with reading or math, household chores, family time, exercise, and their beloved screen time.
Being constantly on screens is frowned upon and that’s why I’m so glad last week I was able to visit my sweet friend and her girls. We spent almost the entire day outside and at the pool.
My son barely saw a screen that day so it was a huge win!
After playing several hours at the pool and having lunch, we went back to her house and played in the backyard. The weather was warm, sunny, and there was a great breeze going on.
It was the perfect conditions for our Kidzlane Automatic Bubble-Blowing Machine.
Every parent knows blowing bubbles by hand gets old fast. There is only one of you and you can’t blow bubbles nearly as fast as this amazing bubble machine.
Not to mention, blowing bubbles by hand is messy. Hands get sticky, bottles get knocked over — it can just be a real mess but not with the Kidzlane Automatic Bubble-Blowing Machine.
Great for All Kids
First off, this bubble-blowing machine is super cute. It is shaped like a happy, colorful dolphin that both boys and girls will love. The base is very stable and stays nice and flat while blowing.
We had it blowing outside on a table on a windy day and had no issues with spilling or leaking. The bubble chamber is actually pretty large and can hold quite a bit of solution. I just kept an eye on it and when it started slowing I’d add more solution.
If I were you I’d experiment with some Pinterest bubble recipes. Your kids will love this toy and you don’t want to be constantly buying bubble solution, do you? That’s my plan anyway.
Blows Over 500 Bubbles Per Minute!
Inside its mouth is where the magic happens. This is where you pour the bubble solution and watch as 10 spinning bubble wands blow over 500 bubbles per minute. I don’t know about you but it would take a whole team of people to blow this many bubbles at my house. Instead, I can do it with one click of a button. It’s awesome!
Really, just one button does all this so it is super simple for even young children to use. However, if they are really young and have the tendency to still stick their fingers in things I’d keep it out of reach. I wouldn’t want little fingers messing with the spinning wands.
We had kids ranging in ages 2 to 9 having a total blast in the bubbles. It makes any time spent outside or at a party extra fun. I totally recommend it!
Besides bubbles, another thing all kids love is finding treasure, of course. Generally, the game of hide and seek is a total blast for kids of all ages. There’s something so thrilling about the hunt and then actually finding whatever it is you are looking for.
Kidzlane Metal Detector
This is the same idea behind the Kidzlane Kid’s Metal Detector. I have to tell you I was really skeptical about this thing being able to detect any metal. However, it completely shocked me.
This toy does indeed detect metal.
Since kids are all about treasure, I went through some old costume jewelry I had and we hide it around the backyard. I wanted them to find something better than a nail or soda tab. This totally did the trick!
They all had a total blast taking turns trying to find the ‘treasure’.
When metal is detected lights and sounds go off letting them know to stop and start searching.
The younger kids also had a great time just going around the house and discovering items that were metal. This metal detector is a great learning experience as well as a blast!
We can’t attest to how deep this toy can detect metal, yet, but it says it can detect things 6 inches down. A great test for the beach! However, remember this product can’t go in the water so make sure your little ones don’t go hunting in the ocean.
The power knob is also how you adjust its sensitivity. If you turn it too far it constantly beeps. We just turned it far enough for it not to constantly beep and we were good to go.
The Kidzlane Kid’s Metal Detector can be used two ways — as a handheld or full-length wand. It’s a perfect way for your kiddos to explore the outdoors! Love it!!
