When you have four boys that are all under the age of 12, toys tend to take a beating. So I was very intrigued when I heard about the GloWubble. The GloWubble is a gigantic translucent bubble that, instead of floating away and popping like the little soap bubbles we all know and love, can hold up to some pretty tough play time.
Things like sitting on it, kicking it, throwing it. So essentially, it looks like a bubble but you can play with it like a ball. At one point they were playing “keep up” which is, as you might expect, where you smack the GloWubble and keep it up off of the ground. Tucker had a blast sliding and diving for the wubble ball.
The GloWubble kit comes with a battery-operated pump and an adapter that makes it easier to get the pump into the hole of the bubble ball to blow it up. (Note- you will need four D-size batteries for the pump.) Once you get it set up, it inflates pretty quickly and is ready to rock and roll. You want to make sure to expose it to plenty of light before turning them off to watch it glow. The more light it gets, the more it will glow.
My kids wanted to play with it right away and could care less that it was totally bright out. Let’s just say all that sunlight made it glow the whole way home from our dinner at our Aunt’s home.
This gigantic inflatable glowing bubble ball provided endless hours of entertainment. This thing really does look just like a bubble and it is light enough that you can kick it or throw it at someone as hard as you want – which my kids were happy to do when aiming for each other!
Many choose to play with it indoors, and because it is thin I would not recommend playing with it outside around trees or near anything that has sharp edges, because it may pop. A really big open area outside, or staying inside, is probably the best place to play with the GloWubble.
Tip: When throwing the GloWubble use your full hand. Do not try to “pinch” the skin of the ball as you will rip a hole into it.

I told you it was quick!
The company is wonderful and every ball comes with a guarantee should something damage the GloWubble (say someone trying to be silly and pinching the ball and ripping a hole into the skin — totally did not happen to us!!) the company will work with you with ease to replace your Wubble!
