Oldie but Goodie


How many of you remember this commercial?

I remember it. We never had Mr. Bubble our bubble baths consisted of dish soap from the kitchen. It bubbled up ok, but I just knew deep in my heart that if I had Mr. Bubble it would have been so much better.

Mr. Bubble has updated their product a bit, with liquid instead of the boxed form, but other than that everything is pretty much the same. Same mascot, same cartoonish look, same quality. How do I know the quality is good? Because they sent me some to try with Caitlyn, and she loved it. I even took a video but the batteries died on the flip and I need to go buy more (whoops).

We used the Bubble bath (of course) and she made beards and planted flower gardens and played for almost 45 minutes in bubbles that never diminished. then I whipped out the Foam Soap (think shaving creamish) and she was just amazed. It came close to being squirted in her mouth since we had just done that before bathtime with the whipped cream. I didn't care too much for the foam soap. It really did have the feel of shaving cream and didn't lather on the body, so it didn't look to be cleaning anything, just kind of smearing around. To round things off we washed her hair with the 3 in 1. Now, to make things easier I could have just used this for all 3 stages, but I really wanted to try everything. This product worked well on her hair, nice lather and easy to rinse with minimal screaming about her EYES BLEEDING.

My favorite part of all these products is that they contained no frangrance, no dyes, no nothing. I am hyper sensitive to most frangrances with my allergies and Marisa and Caitlyn both have developed it as well. So Frangrance and dye free are very important to us.

Wanna know the best part? They want one of my readers to have some Mr. Bubble fun as well. All you need to do to enter is leave me a comment with a bubble bath memory.
