My daughter and I got a kick out of playing with the Wubble Bubble Ball that we were able to review last year, and this year we got to play with a Glo Wubble that was sent to us in exchange for an honest review. Who doesn't want a giant bubble like ball that glows in the dark?
When the box came in, one of the first things I did was to run out and pick up some fresh D batteries for the air pump. You will also need a screwdriver to open and close the two battery compartments for the air pump. The Glo Wubble is fairly easy to inflate. I had some practice with the one from last year, but the included petroleum jelly pack makes it all that much easier. Still took me a couple tries, but was able to get the nozzle inserted all the way and was able to start inflating the Glo Wubble.
I just let the air pump run until the Glo Wubble quit getting larger, and then quickly pulled out the nozzle. It automatically seals, so no worries about air loss as long as the air pump is still running while the nozzle is removed. To get a really good glow, leave the Glo Wubble out in the sunlight for a few minutes. I did this and then ran it to the bathroom to take pictures of the glow since it is the darkest room in my house.
My daughter and I have been punching, tossing and kicking the Glo Wubble around the house for a few days, and it's holding up to all the play and staying inflated. I have found that sunlight is the best way to get it to glow. A large flash light will get it to glow a little, with brighter spots where I put the flash light close, but for a bright overall glow, sunlight has worked best. The longer it is left in the sunlight, the brighter and longer it will glow. We were able to see a glow in a room with the blinds closed, but of course it was not as bright as in a fully dark room.
The Glo Wubble has a gummy feel to it and it does pick up dust and cat hair and bits of fluff, but it is safe to wipe down with a wet cloth. It can also be deflated and put away, then inflated again. To deflate just insert the nozzle and let all the air out. Cooking oil will work to help inset the nozzle if petroleum jelly is not available.
