This seems to be a hard question to get answered because I am not finding much info…anywhere.
Bubbles and kids go hand in hand. They are one of those childhood joys like balloons and balls, but balloons are not so eco-friendly and balls…I guess that depends on how they are made.
But bubbles…they are just soap and water right? How dangerous can that be?
Gazillion Bubbles made by Funrise Toys offer a safe, non-toxic bubble. The label says it conforms to safety requirements of ASTM F963-03. The bottle is recyclable, the cardboard hang-tag is printed on recycled paper and the company itself gives to charity. Sounds good so far. They also have won all kinds of awards from child and parenting groups.
They make great toys that my son absolutely loves, like the Gazillion Bubbles and the Gazillion Bubbles bubble machine…hours of fun…until the bubbles run out.
Gazillion Bubbles claim to be “non-toxic, non-staining and environmentally safe”. OK, sounds great…I am all for it because I really do not want to take away my kids’ bubbles. That would not be good…at all.
Not to mention that I myself love watching bubbles. They are fascinating aren’t they? Pretty iridescent colors, round globes floating in the air then poof they are gone. One of life’s little pleasures. It’s all about the simple things.
It’s just with all the crazy things popping up in places they shouldn’t be like toxins in baby bubble bath, lead in lipstick, and all the awful things being found in everyday products I like full disclosure. I want to know the ingredients in everything, especially the things my kids touch.
