Now, we've had some bad luck with bubble-based toys in the past (none of which have been from Funrise), so my wife and I were both a bit cautiously optimistic about this one - would it work as advertised? As you can see in the video above, so far, so good. There's a really good amount of bubbles that get blasted from the roof of this stylish little ride - a toy that emulates the real-life Gazillion Bubbles Bubble Car - a modified Ford Focus (seen below).
Most great cars a real "head-turners," as they say, and the Bump & Go Bubble Car is no exception, attracting attention from much of the under-10 set in our neighborhood. As the name suggests, it has classic bump-and-go action, changing direction whenever it hits an obstacle. We found that for best results it should be used on a flat surface with a decent amount of space in all directions - like a driveway. It's also highly recommended that it be rinsed out with plain water after each use to avoid stickiness and clogs.
With warmer temperatures hopefully here to stay, we're on the hunt for some fun new outdoor toys to use here at Rock Father HQ, and it certainly appears that this one will be a valued addition to our fleet for 2015.
Rock Father-approved, and available at retailers Nationwide now. MSRP is right around $20, but third-party sellers are pricing it higher on Amazon and eBay.
