From the Manufacturer
Parents want bath time to be an enjoyable time for both them and baby. The NEW Disney Bath time Bubble Maker is sure to keep baby occupied and entertained.
Right out of the box it looked like a promising item that quickly became a frustration. First the battery door was jammed shut with a stripped screw. After half an hour of prying with a screw-driver and a knife for leverage i was able to open it. Poured in the soap solution per manual and turned on. The noise of the motor was deafening; it sounded like a professional-grade meat grinder. No bubbles yet. Just a steady spit of soap and the grind of the motor.
Then i diluted the solution with water. That helped to make half-bubbles that popped and sent the spray right into my kid's face. Ok, thinks I, this is can be avoided by attaching it to the bathroom wall below the kid's eye level. The suction cup held for 15 minutes and then crashed to the bathroom floor. After opening the battery compartment to retrieve the batteries i noticed that it is not water-tight--brilliant idea to put electric toys with no water-proofing into direct contact with water!
This crap is going back!
Do not buy
This toy was so loud that it made my one year old cry, and she never cries! It did work, but more of the soap leaked out of the bottom then was actually used to make bubbles. I would not recommend this toy. Its a great concept, but poor quality!
I did not buy this item from amazon, but my wife had me installing the batteries and after doing so, I noticed how loud it was. I figured I'd go read some reviews to see if we had a defective/loud motor or if that was the norm.
As indicated by the other reviewers, this product is extremely loud. I didn't even waste my time to try getting bubbles into it to see how well it worked because I would be so annoyed having to hear it at all. Surely such a noisy motor does not need to exist to puff a small amount of air out and spin a plastic wheel. There should be a simply little plastic pump to create the air and spinning plastic shouldn't require so much effort. I'd think this could be powered by 2C or 2D batteries in a more efficient matter and with a much quieter motor.
It's going back.
