Toy Review: FUZE Bike Bubbler by Skyrocket Toys

Written by

If there's one thing that all parents (or anyone that's been around kids) can agree on, it's that kids love bubbles. It doesn't matter if it's from a simple container or an elaborate blaster, the appeal of bubbles is just universally accepted... but bubbles blasting from your bike? The concept alone is worthy of a mind-blowing response from the little ones, so when the crew over at Skyrocket Toys asked us to take a look at their new FUZE Bike Bubbler, the power of the bubbles was impossible to resist.

Recommended for Ages 5 and up (though completely and totally socially acceptable for use by grownups), the FUZE Bike Bubbler operates on three AA batteries, and can be mounted under standard bike seats - in most cases just with a philips screwdriver, though you may need a wrench if the seat itself needs adjusting.

After just 10 minutes for installation, I had this ready to roll here in THE ROCK FATHER's state-of-the-art Toy Testing Facility (our house) and ready to be filled with bubbles.

The quick-release latch allows the Bike Bubbler to be easily removed from the bike for a fill-up or for hand-held play. A little bit of the included bubble solution is touted to "create a continuous bubble stream for up to twenty-five minutes," and that number seems accurate. While our video-documented test was under abnormally windy conditions, the FUZE Bike Bubbler still performed just fine, falling into that "immediate hit" category with my girls.

While we shared a quick look thanks to the immediacy of Instagram, I've got some better quality video to share with you below...
