There's a guy that comes to the pier every weekend to create giant soap bubbles. Children love it and go chasing after the bubbles until, to their dismay, they burst.

Wonderful capture, without your explanation I would have ask how the small boy was able to produce the huge bubble! I also like the second child approaching the bubble.

Walter,

Very nice.

We bought a cheap (inexpensive) version of the giant bubble maker and was surprised how easy it was to generate the large bubbles. I doubt our system will survive till next year. This is not expensive grade plastic.

One thing for sure, this device and similar generates hours of fun for the kids old and young alike.

Oh, another thing, the bublemaker is a classic example of the razor blade theory of marketing. Cheap bubble maker but pricey liquid solution for the bubbles.

Aloha
