Zubbles Mini-review

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

Update January 14, 2010Zubbles are now available in individual bottles, .83 ounce tubes and even gallons! No new colors, yet, though.

Blue ZubblesI pre-ordered some Zubbles on June 24th and received them on Monday (after a four year two and a half week wait). They’ve been accepting regular orders for a while now, so the wait shouldn’t be as long for new orders.

Zubbles are on their way!

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Zubbles - Colored BubblesI just placed an order for Zubbles. I can’t believe they’re finally available (shipping in two weeks). I first heard about them in 2005.

I can’t tell you how excited I am.

In case you aren’t aware, Zubbles are colored bubbles invented by Tim Kehoe. If you’d like to read more about their development, the Wikipedia article is a good place to start. Or read the Popular Science story from 2005.

There’s even a Zubbles app for the iPhone!

Do yourself or your kids a favor and order some today! A two-pack is $14.95 at the ZubblesStore.

UPDATE 6/26/2009: Here’s a new article from Popular Science that tells about the process of getting Zubbles to market over the last four years.

UPDATE 7/10/2009: The Discovery Channel News has a new brief article on Zubbles that mentions the chemicals used in the dyes.
