1...2....3.....Lift Off to Fun - Wubble X Review

In our technology driven world of today, I am always looking for toys that spark imagination and play. It is certainly easier to get kids moving and active when it is nice weather but as we are coming into the colder months, finding such a thing can be a little more difficult. While on a cold and rainy day (or a day where I am cleaning), I have handed over the tablets and turned on Nickelodeon many a time, it is nice to find something fun and new for the kids to play with indoors. I was given the Wubble X to review and I think this is a great indoor fun activity for the kids for that rainy/snowy day.

First let me say that when you purchase the Wubble X, you will have to purchase a can of helium separately from the Wubble X box but the cans are located with the display and aren't that expensive. The only drawback for me is that the helium can is basically a one time use can only good for one inflation of the Wubble X not like the GloWubble that includes a battery operated pump good for inflating and deflating the GloWubble (I will post a separate review of that in a little bit). 

When you open the box, everything that you need besides the helium is included - the Wubble X, a small tube of petroleum jelly, a patch for the closure of the Wubble X, stickers to decorate your Wubble X and a handy little set of directions. The directions were pretty easy and I also went to Youtube to get a brief tutorial. At my first inflation, I was a little too helium happy and went one spray too much. Thank goodness I have low ceilings because it went straight to the top. Thus why this is an indoor toy only! I was able to grab it down and put the patch on to prevent air from slipping out and the fun began. My kids loved it! They played catch, they let the balloon (as my son called it) rest on their fingers and it was all fun and games.........until my youngest decided to squeeze the Wubble X and it popped. Totally not the Wubble's fault. They were just so excited to play ball in the house and mommy not freak out about them breaking something. The sadness was too much, so the next time I was out running errands, I headed over to Toys R Us and purchased a new Wubble X and a new can of helium.

Second inflation, I was a pro and didn't overdo it on the helium. Again, the kids loved it and enjoyed playing with it. It also gave me a chance to explain a little science to my oldest. Until...........the serial balloon popper struck again. This time I think he was trying to sit on it. But they still got a nice amount of time playing with the Wubble X and I might just include one in their stockings this holiday season.

Enjoying the customizing of the Wubble X with the stickers that were included.
