My two young boys just love bubbles. Yet they are too young to blow their own bubbles. After using a traditional wand to blow bubbles for them, I was delighted when I bought a bubble machine. Great fun for nice days outside in the sun. Just dont forget to buy extra bottles of bubbles, any brand will work.

We really wanted to love this. It worked great at first, but then it stopped after just a bit of use. We cleaned it up and removed the batteries and the bubble solution seemed to have dripped into the battery compartment. We cleaned that part up and replaced the batteries and it worked again just for a bit, then it stopped. We tried the whole clean up again, but the second time around it never started working again. We contacted Amazon and they immediately gave us a refund. Still not sure which bubble makers out there actually work, so if anyone has any suggestion, I would love to hear them.

Makes lots of bubbles the first couple times. However, the bubble liquid leaks over the side and infiltrates the battery compartment underneath. Overnight, our batteries corroded and the bubble machine would not operate. Cleaned it up, dried it out, put new batteries in, it turned back on. Again, overnight the soap corroded the batteries and it once again does not work. Waste of money.

Easily creates a constant stream of thousands of bubbles
I'm totally satisfied with the way this little machine operates. It worked out of the box, and does produce a lot of bubbles. The body construction is out of light plastic, and feels like one good drop would do it in. The innards consist of a thing metal crankshaft with the bubble wands attached. The "blower" if you will, is a simple computer fan, and good be replaced with another like fan, by someone who is even minimally mechanically inclined. The body comes apart easily with a few screws, and is simply laid out.The quantity and quality of the bubbles are directly related to the bubble solution you use. I've done some experimenting with some cheap store bought solution, and some home-made recipes, and it ranged from quite disappointing numbers of very delicate bubbles, to swarms of bubbles that would bounce off surfaces. I tell you this because this machine has a lot of potential, and don't be discouraged if you use an inferior bubble solution. There are plenty of websites that will lay out the best recipes for bubbles.I would not recommend this machine for a DJ, or any other type of commercial use, for two main reasons. Primarily, the construction is not of the most durable design, and as it is very light, it would be easily pushed or knocked off a table, or wall mount. Also, the reservoir is not very large, maybe half a pint. This translates into maybe 45 minutes of bubbles. This is enough to cater to the attention span of a child, or for a personal use, like a birthday party, but would not be enough to fill a barroom or dance floor for the night. You'd be refilling too often. They make models costing more for more intense uses, under DJ supplies.Some reviews mentioned the machine stopping.Read more ›

I bought several different types of bubble machines for an event.Having tried out a half dozen, this is the one I am keeping.Pros - tiny, lightweight, can do battery or wall power, affordable.Bubbles float high, are nicely spaced, and are in many different sizes.There was no dribble or splatter under the machine.Cons - the motor is loud, the housing is not all black (if you want it hidden),It takes 3 seconds from hitting on to getting noticeable bubbles (only matters if your bubbles have to happen at a specific moment.The fluid reservoir is small, so you will need to refill more frequently. But the unit is compact, so no surprise.In short, worth every penny, but may be a little too loud for an intimate setting.

We have a handicapped daughter who loves bubbles. Believe me when I say we have tried lots of bubble machines. For the price this one has been perfect! When I say we run this for hours a day...I mean hours! If and When the motor finally burns out I will order another one of these machines for sure!!

Great product....Puts out lots of bubbles...Just be sure to not overfill pass the fill line and grab some rechargeable C battery's. Be sure to run some warm water through the unit to clean it out after use. This practice has kept my unit producing awesome bubbles. I purchased a non-toxic bubble fluid because the ones that comes with the unit has warning not to get it in your eyes.

Bubble machine comes as pictured. It does not come with batteries. Comes with enough bubbles for about two uses. They last for about 10 minutes and my kids and animals absolutely love them. I usually set them up outside and let them run wild. This would be great for an outdoor party. Other bubble machines feel like they might topple over and this one stays upright pretty good. It takes C batteries, I am not sure if it says that but somehow I missed it in the description. I would recommend this bubble machine to anyone.

This is a really fun bubble blower! I love that the kids can play with bubbles and I don't have to blow them! You just pour the bubble solution into the blower, and press start. It continues to blow bubbles until you press "off". It makes a great amount of bubbles too. The kids love to run around in the billows of bubbles whem they used this. It uses batteries (C batteries). It can be taken anywhere. You also have a plug in option, but the plug does not come with it. We preffer the batteries tho, so that we can use it anywhere. The body is made of all plastic. It has bright fun colors, and it worked great right from the start. We are really excited about this bubble blower!This product was given at discount / free price in exchange for my honest review.

This bubble machine has been great entertainment for my 4 year old and our puppy! Both love to chase bubbles and pop them, or eat them in the dog's case! When I first opened the box and got it out, I thought it had a broken piece, but you can actually remove any of the wands from the wheel if you want to have less bubbles. One thing in our case was the screw to the battery case was stripped so we did have to pry the door open. Other than that, we have enjoyed the new toy on these summer days! We do a lot of camping and plan on taking it with so all of the kids can play! One tip is to not overfill the the bubble machine as the gear will not run as smooth. Unfortunately, we had this happen, but it was our own faults! I let me daughter assist with pouring in the bubbles and it did get too full, but now we now!! It takes 4 C cell batteries, which were not included. There is also a spot for an AC adapter, which was also not included, but if you have one for other toys, I'm sure it will work for this too! We have to find one so we aren't going through a ton of batteries this summer, since she will be playing with it everyday! I would highly recommend this bubble machine to anyone with kids or dogs! I hope this review helps, if so please hit yes. I did receive this product at a discount or for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

This guy takes 4 C batteries, but has a completely undocumented DC port on the side wired in parallel with the battery compartment. This was very convenient for me since I did not have 4 C batteries, but did have a basket of DC power supplies and quickly found a universal one that had a plug that fit. With my super cheap bubble stuff, the thing would not make any bubbles with the power supply set to 6 volts (it was actually more like 5.2 volts), but setting it to 8 volts got the fan going fast enough to blow some bubbles. I don't know how performance would be with actual C cell batteries, but I would imagine I would not have gotten it blowing bubbles with my crappy bubble stuff at the nominal 6 volts batteries would put out.I'm not sure if it's the quality of the bubble stuff or what, but the bubbles seem to come off of the rings a bit too close to the upper edge of the opening and adhering to it. My solution is to up the voltage even more to get the clinging bubbles to blow off of the lip of the opening.

Use GOOD bubble solution- we use Fubbles brand. We started with regular cheap bubble solution from the dollar store and it was highly disappointing- it blew bubbles but they were slow and spread out. As soon as we started using the better solution we were absolutely inundated with a flood of awesome bubbles- my kids are in heaven!
June 22, 2015
We had two bubble makers of a different brand which took a ridiculous amount of batteries and broke after a few uses. This machine is the solution - has a power adapter and appears to be well made. The other reviewers reporting low bubble output obviously are using low quality cheap bubble juice. With the right juice there are gazillions of bubbles coming out.

I bought this for my 3 year old for Christmas. The instructions were in Spanish but it's easy enough to figure out. Simply plug in and add bubble solution (not included). I filled it up all the way and after 15 plus minutes there was still half the solution left and it cranks out a ton of bubbles and isn't loud at all

OK, so I'm an adult. Someone who SHOULDN'T like bubbles as much as I do, however I just cannot help myself. I have many bubble machines, most of which are the type that one would purchase at a toy store. I recently had to loan my 'main' machine to a friend who needed it for a stage play and found I would not have my favorite machine for a whole month. Little did I know that my addiction would not allow me to last that long so I started a search for an 'interim' replacement. After much searching I found this machine the Turbo Deluxe 16 wand model. I had seen others priced around 149.00 made by other manufacturers, but felt that was a bit too much to pay for a 'fetish.' So after reading the reviews I made the plunge and boy am I ever glad I did! The unit is well made and easily disassembled for cleaning. It produces a good amount of volume as well. I did find that home brew bubble liquid performs better in this unit than my favorite brand, Miracle Bubbles. Miracle Bubbles are great for wand action, but foam a bit too much for a machine.I highly recommend this unit, especially given the price and build quality. For those who have complained about the lack of instructions, I believe that pouring liquid into the unit, plugging it in and turning it on is self explanatory!

I would like to start off by saying that this is the 5th bubble machine that I have purchased THIS SPRING. (Its only April!)The others all came from Wal-Mart or Target, cost between $10 and $20, were plastic, and either didn't work at all, or worked for exactly 1 day. I ordered this one thinking that, although it's slightly more expensive, it might actually work. I have a 4 yr old, a 2 yr old, and a 9 month old baby. My older 2 kids LOVE to play bubbles, and many times turning on a bubble machine entices them into going outside to play, when they otherwise would prefer to stay inside with me, alternating between tormenting each other, and teaming up to find new ways to challenge my sanity. It gets them outside and moving so they can burn off some steam. Obviously, with 3 children under the age of 5, and one of them a baby, I don't have time to sit there and blow bubbles for them. I was in desperate need of a bubble maker that worked! I was tired of buying them from the stores only to have to return them the following day.I got this bubble maker, and was immediately impressed by how sturdy and high-quality it seemed. The instructions were typed on a piece of printer paper and were obviously written by someone who does not speak english very well or were translated from another language by someone who does not speak english very well. They make absolutely no sense. Fortunately, it is very straightforward. Put bubble solution in, plug in machine. instructions not needed. I love that it plugs in so I'm not burning through batteries constantly.Read more ›

I purchase items on Amazon based on reviews so I thought it was only fair to review items also. So here goes. I have always wanted a nice bubble machine which could fill my backyard with bubbles. I have tried the cheap plastic ones which run on batteries and when it dies after a few weeks I figured I better buy a decent one but I didn't want to pay $50 for a bubble machine. This one showed up and I couldn't resist. It arrived and was very simple. A circular wand which spins though the bubble solution and what appears to be a basic computer fan which blows though the wand. How much more basic can you get. It works great! Fills the backyard, and the neighbors backyard and their neighbors backyard, etc with bubbles. I always place mine on top of the patio cover and hook it up to a remote switch so I can turn it off and on. I did notice the screws and the fan guard did being to rust a tad but I have had mine for a year now and it still works great.Seeing how Halloween is just around the corner I wanted to make fog filled bubbles. I simply placed a fog machine behind the intake fan and its awesome. It fills the bubble with fog and then when they hit the ground its plum of fog. Very cool.

Boasts a very durable construction
Lightweight and compact design hence portable
Quiet when making bubbles
While operating, this bubble machine takes up a large amount of bubble liquid
Intended for kids, this Gazillion Bubble Hurricane Machine by Funrise is ideal for any special occasions like picnics, weddings and birthdays. It creates the hurricane of bubbles that are enthralling and enchanting in minutes. Available in standard and frustration-free packaging that is easy to open, this bubble machine is also available as a gift wrap.
10 piece rotating bubble wheel that easily fires out up to 500 bubbles in every minute thereby creating a hurricane of bubbles.
Comes with Gazillion solution that is deemed to be the world’s best bubble solution. The solution is also non-toxic making it safe for all kids.
Features a very special Gazillion bubble formula that is definitely one-of-a-kind solution.
Requires six “AA” batteries but they are not included in the package.
After initially getting the bubble machine out of the box I was a little underwhelmed. It's small and doesn't weigh much. After putting in the batteries and starting this bad boy up I was shocked at how many bubbles this little machine produced. We've been playing with this machine the entire week with no issues and my kiddo loves playing in the hurricane of bubbles. I'll update my review later if my mind changes but if you have kids who like bubbles - get this. You won't be disappointed.A few tips:1. The itty bitty bubble solution it comes with only lasts about 20 minutes. (We timed it) I recommend getting the Gazillion 2-liter bubble solution. That stuff makes the best bubbles. Nothing else can compare.2. Make sure not to over fill it. It's very easy to do. I do wish there was a way to hold more bubble fluid so I didn't have to refill every 10 minutes or so or at least a max line to show you when to stop pouring the bubble solution in. If you do fill it up too high it will leak.3. If your bubble wand stops working check to make sure it's appropriately attached to the motor. My toddler was messing with it and it didn't work. Turns out his little fingers lifted it off the thing that makes it spin. After I made sure it was attached correctly we had no more issues.UPDATE 6/10/15:We have been using this bubble maker daily (with the exception of the few times we've had rain) and it's working as if it was still brand new! This is also after about a dozen times it has fallen off our outdoor table. For some reason kids are drawn to it and feel the need to play with the bubble wand while it's spinning so I recommend keeping it high out of reach. I'm really surprised how well it's holding together after all the usage it has gotten so far.

I posted this in a review a while back for one of the Gazillion bubble machines, figured it might be helpful here. These toys are so much fun until you are out of bubble solution. I went looking for refills and couldn't find any - you need Gazillion GOLD bubbles by the way because you are trying to make big bubbles, regular bubble stuff will not work. I could not find a refill anywhere - lots of places sold the bubblator we had, none sold refills. Grrr.So I did some research and experimenting and came up with this replacement. Buy a big container of regular bubble stuff (I got a 100oz Miracle Bubbles) and a 4oz bottle of Glycerin (available in the soap / skin care section of drugs stores - but not all of them (Walgreens did not have it, I found mine in CVS, little plain brown bottle Dump the entire bottle of glycerin into the Miracle Bubbles. Mix gently (don't shake vigorously). Do this a day or two in advance of using for best results (the glycerin needs to age a little) - however I did use it right away and did pretty well. Voila - 100oz of replacement bubbles for cheap rather than one tiny little bottle. Enjoy!I haven't tested this in this product specifically, but it worked great in the Gazillion Bubblator we own.

Great fun to begin with, tons and tons of bubbles.Unfortunately we haven't had one live more than a week or so - we don't overfill it, we clean it with each use, we store it indoors, we replace the batteries to verify that isn't the issue, etc.They simply aren't durable.
May 9, 2005

This was a hit with my daughter on Christmas day! I had been looking just to get her some spill-proof bubbles for her stocking and came across a cheaper bubble machine, by chance. After reading the negative comments and how they ended up breaking, I kept looking for a better option since a bubble machine seemed way more fun than a container of bubbles. My daughter is 16 months old and plays with bubbles at daycare but she's only used to a couple bubbles at a time. I ended up buying the Gazillion Bubbles which worked great for this machine. When we first turned it on my daughter went crazy...she was so incredibly excited! Since it was December in Michigan, we fired it up inside the house but only let it run in 2 or 3 minute increments because it kicks out SO many bubbles and we were nervous about the carpet getting wet. Buy, we had no issues at all with bubbles popping right in front of the machine and liquid pooling. The machine pushed bubbles out at least 10 feet when it was 3 feet off the ground. I can't wait until we can use this outside. It's perfect for birthday parties or for use at daycare to keep the kids entertained. Skip the cheaper versions and go with something that will last! Highly recommend!

The 1byone professional bubble machine is a really fun product to have. It is well made and it is a huge bubble machine. We used to buy the tiny bubble machine for our kids and it always break because the liquid can easily get inside the motor and it just get broken after that. We even bought maybe two more but we always end up throwing it. Luckily, I found the 1byone bubble machine and my kids are so happy now. It is a quiet bubble machine and it blows a lot of bubbles. The motor of the bubbles machine is really protected well from getting wet so that is a good thing. I love how quiet the motor is because with the bubble machine we bought in the store, it was so noisy especially when it gets wet. As far as the 1byone bubble machine making the floor wet, for me its normal because the bubble maker just spin non stop and it depends on what kind of bubble liquid you put in it. With the bubble machine we bought in the store, it does the same thing when it comes to floor making it wet. Plus bubbles is made of liquid so it is very normal for bubbles especially a lot of bubbles to make your floor wet. Because the 1byone bubbles machine blow out so much bubbles, my kids eventually get wet from it because they are constantly pooping all the bubble they can pop. One thing that you need to have is a lot of bubble liquid to refill the bubble machine because the bubble machine consumes bubble liquid in no time. I highly recommend the 1byone bubble machine. I received this product for free in exchange of my honest and unbiased review.

Didn't blow many bubble. Not easy to clean. Wands easily broke. Very disappointing. Purchased this machine after reading good reviews. Not good for multi children. If you want to create a lot of bubbles or make it more fun, you need to use a room fan to blow the bubbles around. I have purchased many machines. This was just as good as a $12 machine.
August 1, 2014
Cheaper versions work just as well, I thought it would blow twice as many bubbles. Disappointed for the money that was spent.
April 11, 2014
Works great!! Kids love it. Really lives up to bubble party. It does hold more liquid and runs longer which is great. Only gave a four star for the down side - when it can't reach to get any more bubble liquid and only one bubble can blow, there still is a cup of liquid to remove when done for the day. Some have suggested thicker bubble liquid for it but who advertises "thick bubble liquid"?

Keeps your child active which is healthy
Transforms any party or occasion into a bubble filled wonderland

Does not come with bubble making mix so you have to buy
Measuring 11.5 inches by 8 inches by 18 inches, this bubble machine will be sure to create a fun and exciting atmosphere for any special occasion or event whether day or night. It produces thousands of streaming bubbles and is ideal for kids of ages three years and more. Imperial Toy R2-D2 Bubble Machine is easy to use and put together and comes with a bottle of bubble solution.
Boasts authentic lights and sound effects that are sure to make blowing the bubbles very fun.
Includes an 8 oz bottle of premium bubble solution thereby saving you the hassle of looking for the best bubble liquid to buy.
Works in three different modes and capable of rotating head 90-degrees.
Buyer beware. I ordered this toy from "Deals Collector". My son opened R2 up on Christmas and I immediately knew something was wrong. Something was rattling inside of R2's head. It was the mechanism that blows the bubbles out. R2's head did not turn left or right, did not blow out any bubbles, and did not make any blurps or bleeps other than the one noise he made when he turned on. I was surprised because this is the first time that I have purchased something Amazon and it came in broken. I was extremely disappointed. Just an FYI for anyone else.
December 27, 2015
Ordered this Nov 4/16 for Christmas gift. Tried it when it arrived and it worked. Didn't start using it regularly until 5/16. Now it doesn't work. His head just goes back and forth and he beeps. Tried the rest button as instructed in the manual and still didn't work. In Nov the price was $99.99. Needless to say I am very angry because it cannot be returned. I agree with other comments that Disney is making expensive junk taking advantage of us Star Wars fans not to mention an unhappy child.
June 15, 2016
Perfect gift for my 5-yr old granddaughter. Everyone loved it. Blowing bubbles and light effects made for a wonderful birthday party. A word of caution, pay attention to the directions. It is too easy to get the legs on backwards.
July 15, 2016
Can operate perfectly for hours
Features a sturdy design
Produces high output of bubbles
Compared to the rest of the bubble machines in this review, this bubble blowing machine is a little bit pricey
How to Choose a Bubble Machine?
When choosing a bubble blowing machine, first you will need to consider the size of the unit’s reservoir because this will determine for how long it can run before refilling it again. You will also need to consider the power source of the machine i.e. whether battery operated or power from a wall outlet. Another factor to consider is the bubble blowing machine solution because some machines can’t just take any type of solution. You need to also consider the wand disc options depending on the sizes and quantities of bubbles you want to create.

Our top pick is the Lightahead Portable Hubble Bubble Blowing Machine for many reasons. One of the reasons that makes it stand out is its 30-day money back guarantee meaning you are guaranteed to get a full refund in case the bubble machine does not please you. It also a features a collapsible handle and can use any standard bubble mix. Although the motor usually makes some whirring sound while running, this is not such a big issue for most people.
