The Bubble Blower

I bought Thomas a bubble blower a.k.a lawn mower on Friday. Yesterday seemed like the perfect day to try it out. It's funny how now as a parent, I can look at things and know instantly and say to myself "oh this is going to be great" or "nope, that's just not going to work" or "did the people that made this have toddlers of their own?" Look at this picture. Is it just me or do you see how it was going to go down with the bubble blower?Yeah, well, he gave it one pass across the yard and then realized that that little bottle of bubbles wasn't completely attached. I could see it in his eyes. He went right for the bottle and that was the end of the bubbles. He played with the bubble bottle and the bubble blower for a good 20 minutes while sitting on the ground. I don't think I'll be putting more bubbles in it! Don't get me wrong, he loves it! And it provided 20 minutes of good entertainment. It just won't be blowing any more bubbles out of it!

Heh - I bought Sumo baby a hippo that blows bubbles and it's awesome. You pour the stuff in - no jug of bubble stuff attached. Then you press the handle, the hippo's mouth opens, and voila! He barfs bubbles. I love it.

This made me smile because my 2 year olds are currently obsessed with bubbles, however, manage to dump their little bottles over every time. I have at least 8 empties lined up - and that's from within the last 2 weeks. Those little bottles are definitely not made for little slippery hands, that's for sure.

Darling picture of your boy :)

I love these pictures. He is so curious. I am sure he will have the whole thing figured out if he hasn't all ready!

I love the look on his face as he's looking into the empty bubble bottle--you can practically see the wheels turning in his head! But, heck, if it kept Thomas Trouble-free for 20 minutes??? YAY! I personally think the bubble-barfing hippo sounds kinda fun :).

I just love me some Thomas...

I almost bought a bubble blower today. Why would you leave the bubble bottle on the lawn mower, that is poor design. PB would be all over that like Thomas.
He looks so intent on figuring something out.

Ours didn't last long either, but now they just get a kick out of being like dad...well ok, to be honest, like mom...I end up doing the mowing alot! At least he got a good 20 minutes out of it! :)

Did you get a new camera? Those shots are so crisp and divine (yes ALL of your others have been lovely too).

A toy inventor without children is like a man designing tampons. Uh-uh.
