My daughter's Under the Sea party is coming up in a couple of weeks. For months, I have had this idea that it would be great to have a bubble machine. I checked online and the ones that I found were always very expensive. I even checked some local stores and they didn't have any or wouldn't get them till the summer. Well, Target (everybody's fave store) sent out a small catalog and lo and behold there was a kids bubble machine for $10.99. I couldn't believe it. I went the next day and got it. It came with the 6 AA batteries and a small bottle of solution. I did buy an extra big bottle just to have on hand. It BLOWS BUBBLES LIKE YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE!!! I can't wait to use it!
