SuperWubble Ball Review & Giveaway!

So have you heard of Wubble Ball? My kids have been curious about this product for a while now. It seems to have the appeal of both a ball and a balloon which are two of their most favorite things.

Well, there is a new Wubble in town…the Super Wubble! Like the original Wubble – which was named the #1 Selling Sports Activity Toy for 2015 by the NPD Group – new Super Wubble is soft and lightweight and can be inflated to gigantic proportions.

The new Super Wubble Bubble Ball is just as squishy and fun as our original Wubble Bubble Ball, but uses a new top secret Xpandium™ material, which makes it up to four times stronger and more tear-resistant.

I recently had a chance to review the Super Wubble. As you can see from the photos below my boys had a blast playing with it!

Though you may be asking yourself why a pink Super Wubble?….

….well…since the product that was sent out for review was a random color…I decided that we would just use this opportunity to throw my youngest son’s special frog friend, Gabi, a birthday party. Gabi is my youngest son’s special stuffed BFF. She loves pink…and cake!

Gabi was nice enough to let the boys play with her new birthday present. They had a blast! I personally loved the battery powered inflater. (batteries not included). I got a little confused on the whole valve thing??? But I pushed through and once I figured it out it went fast. The inflater made getting the ball up and going quick and easy. It was awesome.

The Super Wubble is definitely an interesting, unique and fun product and makes a great birthday gift idea for boys and girls….and special stuffed frogs too! 🙂

Remember, while Super Wubble is strong, it’s not indestructible. It can pop if it comes into contact with sharp objects like tacks, broken glass, sharp fingernails or branches – or if played on a rough surface like concrete. For maximum strength and durability, NSI recommends inflating it no more than 30 inches.

The butterfly bush you see in some of the images did wind up putting our Wubble out of commission. The ball does come with a patch kit. Unfortunately, due to the size and placement of the hole I was not able to repair it. (Yes, the boys and Gabi are very disappointed.)

See for yourself how Super Wubble holds up in the fun YouTube series, Super Wubble Vs. The World, where NSI International, the makers of Super Wubble, drop all kinds of objects on the giant bubble ball from the top of a building. Watch Super Wubble take on everything from a pineapple and a bowling ball to a shopping cart and a toilet! And guess for yourself: Will it pop?
