I pulled it out the box, poored the bubbles in, plugged it up AND INSTANT FUN!!!!! My 2 year old has a ball everytime we use it!!! A little expensive though.

Good product but it leaks if even slightly on uneven ground. Bubbles do not last four hours even when filled to the top. Would be better if bubble wands were different sizes to create multiple sized bubbles.
Beyond some minor flaws, it did provide lots of fun for the kids, just be sure to keep filling it up!

Would not bother
I have bought many great things from OT. This unfortunatley was not one of them. When I revieved it, two of the bubble prongs were broken. Then when I tried to use it, oneor two bubbles came out! It was a waste of money. I am going to send it back. Don't buy or you will be disappointed

I wanted a Bubble Machine for my grantkids birthday party, well when it came I read the half page about it put the bubble fix in the I get from OTC and it did put out some bubbles, But not as much as it looked like in the ad. And for the amount paid it was not worth it. Should have just got the bubbles from a local store.

bubble machine for my daughter's wedding
we purchased this bubble machine for my daughter's reception at her wedding... the first one wouldn't work.. however, oriental trading didn't waste anytime in replacing it.. the second one had a bolt out of the blower , but my husband is handy dandy and he fixed it and we think it is going to work perfect by the dance floor! we are super excited about it.. i would totally recommend it...

Piece of junk!!
I bought this bubble machine for our staff closing banquet at the end of our summer camp. With a Willy Wonka theme I thought bubbles would be nice. The first machine I received had 2 wires that weren't even connected and the fan wasn't attatched. There were no instructions of any kind either. I called Oriental and the woman I spoke to was very helpful and I returned the machine. I had a second machine sent and although there were no loose wires, the fan was still unattached and two of the bubble wands were broke off. I decided to screw the fan in place the best I could without instructions and see if I could get it to work because our event is very soon. The fan blew air but not into the bubble wands. If I stood and bent the fan forward it worked great but unfortunately that just wouldn't do. Once again the person I spoke to was very helpful and I have returned the second and last bubble machine.

A big hit
I used this for my daughter's 4th birthday party that was themed "under the sea." The kids really enjoyed the bubbles and it added that little detail to the theme.
I think that the price is really really a good deal, Before deciding to buy a bubble machine I looked into a rental and the going rate was about $50.

We used this to entertain the kids at a 4th of July party. The bubbles were awesome, the kids LOVED IT.
I had the bubble blower sitting on a log, so it was only off the ground about 3 fee - the bubbles did not go/blow very far (maybe I needed to have it higher up so they just floated around).
The kids played in it and loved it, but it made a mess, lucky we had it in the grass, so the grass around it was soapy.
If the wind blew the bubbles did too, many times the wind blew the bubbles back on the machine, nature of the beast I guess - so the bubble machine was covered with soap.
Cleaning was not easy, I removed the bottom cover to remove the reservoir, it removed easily, but the entire machine was covered with soapy bubbles ¿¿¿ I had to clean it slowly and cautiously to ensure no damage to the motor.
The plastic bubble sticks (they rotate) are hard plastic and break easily.
I had to return the original bubble maker because one of the bubble sticks were broken off.
I plan to use it again; of course it has to be outside away from the house.
Also - it would be nice if it were battery operated. we had to use a very long extension cord to operate

Good quality but price is a little high
There were cheaper bubble machines elsewhere but I was putting in a large order so I decided to buy this and save on shipping. I thought the quality was good and everything came in tact and it works great. I didn't see the point of an instruction manual. Use just enough bubble solution to coat the lower half of the wands and they come out at a slower rate. Also, use this on a cement floor or carpeting because it gets too slippery on a linoleum or coated hard wood surface.
