How cool is this?!? This ball looks like a bubble but it plays like a ball. The kids had a blast playing with their Wubble™ Bubble Ball this past weekend. What’s a Wubble™ Bubble Ball? It is one of Target’s Hot Toys of the Year, as well as a Family Fun Toy of the Year. Inspired by his children’s wish to play with a real bubble, NSI President Frank Landi developed the Wubble™ Bubble Ball to make his children’s idea for fun, active play a real possibility. It has won numerous toy awards, including an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Award, a National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, a Mr. Dad Approved Award, a Parent’s Choice Award and the Dr. Toy Best 100 Picks Award.
The ball inflates to about three feet tall. It comes with a pump to inflate it, and it can deflate for easy storage. The pump requires 4 D batteries. The only drawback to inflating it is that it doesn’t come with a dc adapter. It’s great for outdoor play, just be sure to keep it away from gravel and tree branches. You can also play with it indoors as well. I let my kids bounce it all over the house since we decided to test it on a very windy day.
Some things to keep in mind about your Wubble™ Bubble Ball:
- Wubble Balls are not indestructible, but they have a lifetime replacement guarantee. It costs $6.99 to replace a Wubble under the guarantee.
- Please take care not to damage your Wubble Ball during inflation. It might be necessary to use a little bit of oil (whatever you have in your kitchen) to insert the pump into the Wubble Ball the first time.

Wubble™ Bubble Ball is available at Target, Toys R Us, and online at http://www.wubbleball.com. You can also check them out on Twitter (@WubbleBall) and Facebook (facebook.com/wubbleball).
Overall, the kids had a fun time playing with the ball, and they are looking forward to taking it to the park to bounce it around. It took only a few minutes to inflate it, and I love that we can store it easily. If you are looking for a fun toy to keep kids active, then make sure you put the Wubble™ Bubble Ball on your shopping list!
