This kit includes a pair of football pattern socks, a tub of bubble mix, a football style bowl and the bubble blower. It looks good and is nicely packaged I can see why this appeals to the kids.
Myself and the kids (age 5 and 8) were very excited to try these as we had tried the hand bubbles kit a couple of years ago and been really disappointed with it. We thought that the manufacturers must have improved the bubble mix by now. Unfortunately, they have not, these are really not very good at all. The advert on the TV makes it look so easy but it isn’t. It is really really difficult and almost impossible for a child to get the bubble on the sock never mind to do any tricks with it. No matter how hard we tried, it just did not work. We just ended up with a slippery floor!
I think this concept is great and if they could get a better bubble mix then it would be fantastic but as it stands at the moment this is too expensive for what it is. I presume part of the price tag is due to these being endorsed by Messi but it is really not worth the inflated price.
