It wasn’t until a few weeks ago we were asked to review the Wubble Bubble Ball, when I knew the package had come I left it on the counter for when he came home from school. Packages left on the counter are fair game in our house!

The ball which requires it’s own air pump and 2 D batteries was easy to blow up and took around 5 minutes to properly inflate. The instructions are very easy to follow and if you are someone who needs a visual you can even watch a how to on You-Tube.

What we liked about the Wubble Bubble Ball was that it was fun for the whole family. My husband was able to catch it with his larger hands, my son loved that we needed to use 2 hands so when I got in on the action I was forced to put my phone down and have some good ole fashioned fun with my family. Main Man loved the softness of the ball and the ability to squish it and of course Sit on it!
