Recently, we came across this interesting product – Messi Foot Bubbles which is a thick bubble that allows you to juggle around your feet. The pack includes a pair of socks, bubble blower, solution tray and bubble solution. The socks are available in range of four colours: purple, green, orange and red. This is suitable for ages 6 and upwards.
First, you need to pour the bubble solution into the tray just under the maximum line and dip your bubble blower into it. Then remove it and blow slightly downwards. Gently shake it off. Both my children struggled to shake it off without bursting the bubbles. It took them a while to get used to it. Then use your sock to juggle it. Both of them kept kicking it instead of gently juggle it. They only managed to juggle a maximum of twice before the bubble burst.
They both find it hard to juggle and gave up pretty quickly. This is an interesting product if you are able to use it wisely. Both of them are not great at juggling or at football keepy-uppys hence the bubbles keep bursting. We played this indoors and the solution was quick sticky and made the floor quite slippery. It is best to play outdoors for this reason.
I have washed the socks and they still look great after washing. It came out very dry. I think this product needs a lot of practise and patience which both my children don’t have. Maybe children who are good at football might find this product easier to play with. Do check out their website to learn all the tricks to juggle the bubbles: https://www.footbubbles.com/
