To prepare for the heat, I like to turn up the fun by keeping my kids stocked with fun outdoor toys. Bubbles and water balloons are always a big hit, so when our box of toys from Imperial Toys arrived we were thrilled!
We were sent 4 toys to try out, The Cyclops Water Balloon Launcher, a Bubble Turbine, Hi-Beam Illuminator Bubble Blaster, and a Tie Not Filler with 50 Water Bombs.
With the temperature dropping this past week, we looked over the water balloon supplies, but decided to leave that for a warmer day. Instead we tore into the bubble toys!
The Hi-Beam Illuminator Bubble Blaster was a big hit!
It comes with the gun, bubbles, two packets of activators and a stick to stir it with. I opened up the bubbles and added in both a packet of "A" powder and "B" powder then stirred as directed. The bubble gun requires batteries, but once turned on it glows and pumps the glowing bubble solution (which is screwed onto the gun) through the gun and out as bubbles. Very cool!
It is hard to see in the pictures, but the bubbles are glowing orange! This impressed my kids. Just keep the gun aimed away from faces, wall and clothing or your children will glow for the rest of the evening.
My daughter's favorite was the Bubble Turbine.
With a switch out plate to either create large bubbles like this, or hundreds of small bubbles this also required batteries to get the fan blowing. It was easy enough for my youngest to play with. She was quite adept at creating the bubbles,
...and also chasing them. Who can resist popping a big bubble or two?
I can't wait to try out the water balloon toys. Just trying out the Tie Not Filler on my garden hose made me long for warmer days. The Tie Not will make water balloon wars easy by providing an easy area to put the balloon on and and easy way to tie it off.
There are more great toy ideas at Imperial Toys. Check out this YouTube clip of their Tie-Not KAOS Battle Pump:

My favorite part of childhood was getting to play outside. I am excited to share these toys with my kids to encourage their getting out and just being kids. I plan to check out more of the Imperial Toy lines. And I may even have to get a few for myself. Armed with water balloons and bubbles, I know this Summer is going to be great!
