Gotta Have It
Check out these bubble-tastic stocking fillers from T-Rex or dolphin 'guns' to a soapy form of ping pong. Plus, circus skills presents that glow in the dark!
Looking for stocking fillers? These bubble guns are great fun because they don’t actually look like guns but they do fire a mass of bubbles.
Let T Rex roar out nothing more scary than soap, or get a bubble-blowing dolphin, frog, cat or pig (all £4.99). There’s also a dynamo LED version (also £4.99) with coloured lights charged by pumping the trigger.
Or how about upping the game with Bubble Ping Pong – yes really – played with a blowing trumpet and two fabric-covered paddles (£4.99).
Or, really show, off with the Double Bubble Blower that blows one bubble inside another (£5.99).
Pick these up at Oddballs in Brighton’s North Laine or from their online shop – also the go-to place for park toys from pogo sticks to kites and boomerangs and circus skills presents like stilts and these colourful diablos, that I’ve seen even 6-year-olds perform amazing feats with.
I got a LED version of a diablo for my nephew a couple of years back and it look great when the coloured lights got spinning. You can get one (around £9.99), or a kit to adapt an existing diablo, plus a hula hoop frisbee, yo-yo or more in LED versions.
