Have you heard of the Wubble Bubble Ball? If you haven’t, I’m sure your kids have! This toy was actually selected by Target as a 2014 Top Toy for the Holiday Season and has been listed among other popular toys and games that are sure to be on every holiday wish list!
The Wubble Bubble Ball inflates up to 3 feet but you can also inflate your Wubble to a smaller size, about 24-30 inches is suggested. Inflating it less makes it wigglier and stretchier and in my opinion, gives it more playability. According to the FAQ on the Wubble Ball website, Inflating it to a smaller size also makes the Wubble Ball a little more durable because it isn’t stretched as much.
When I brought the Wubble Bubble Ball over to my mom’s house so that my nephew Angel (age 6) and E (age 3) could play with it together, Angel instantly recognized it from the commercial he had saw on TV! He couldn’t wait to give it to try so my sister and I got to work on inflating it!
After removing the Wubble Ball from the box, We found four D batteries around the house to use for the pump that the ball comes with. To blow up the Wuble Ball, It took my sister and I about 15 minutes. I’m
pretty sure positive that the reason it took us that long to inflate it was due to our own error because it should only take about 3 minutes to inflate it according to the instructions. We probably should have watched the instructional video that can be seen on YouTube before attempting to blow up the ball! After seeing the video on YouTube, I believe that we didn’t have the nozzle in deep enough. I consider this a lesson learned and will know better for next time!
Once we had the Wubble Bubble Ball inflated, Angel and E took the ball outside in the backyard to play with! They bounced, kicked, and tossed the ball around to each other. The ball is actually recommended for children 6+ but E had no problem using it.
At one point, Angel was laying on it which made me nervous becasue I was afraid of the ball potentially popping and after expressing to him my concern, Angel replied, “Don’t worry, I’ve seen them do this on the commercial!” This is true and since then, Angel and E have layed on it a few times just like the kids in the commercial! Angel also enjoys leaning against it and bouncing himself as he watched TV or does his homework.
I feel like even big kids will have a great time with the Wubble Ball. I’m a big kid at heart and had a fun time tossing the Wubble around with the kids. E had me throwing the Wubble as far as I could so she could chase it and kick it back to me.

As a parent, I love how the Wubble Ball promotes active play and large motor skills in younger children. I also appreciate that the Wubble Ball has a lifetime replacement guarantee! It costs just $6.99 to replace a Wubble Ball under the guarantee which I feel is reasonable. In my opinion, it’s pretty well made so unless the kids are being violent with it or playing with it near sharp objects, I can’t see it popping anytime soon.
We now keep the Wubble Ball where my nephew lives. Elise was distraught that we couldn’t take the Wubble Ball home with us so I suggested that she ask Santa for one and maybe he will bring it at Christmas! She now has a blue Wubble Ball on her Christmas wish list.
Wubble Ball is available at Target, Toys R Us and on the Wubble Ball website!
