WubbleX Anti Gravity Ball {Review}

Last year Parker had the opportunity to review the Wubble Bubble Ball  shortly after Caity was born. It was the perfect activity for him to be a little silly and play with something completely different. It was exciting that about a year later I was contacted again to review the new WubbleX Anti Gravity Ball.

Special thanks to Wubble for providing a WubbleX ball for review in addition to financial compensation. As always all opinions are 100% my own and never recommend a product I wouldn’t use myself or with my family.

First apply the petroleum jelly to the filling straw and insert it slowly into the valve. Make sure not to push too hard as you risk puncturing the WubbleX.

The next part is definitely where an adult should take over. Connect the helium canister to the free end of the filling straw and remove the safety tab. Begin inflating the WubbleX slowly. If it is inflated too quickly you run the risk of pushing it away from the filling straw.

At full size the WubbleX is about 9 inches. You will know it’s close when it starts floating away from the filling straw. Once full place a vale sealing patch over the value to keep in as much helium as possible during play.

Then it’s time to have fun!

The WubbleX is available on their website for $19.99 plus $8.99 shipping and handling. This includes two canisters of helium. The WubbleX is also available at Target for $7.99 but does not include any helium canisters.

Caity and Parker both really loved playing with the WubbleX. It was the perfect indoor activity for them on a rainy day. Parker couldn’t believe he was allowed to play with a ball in the house 🙂 I loved that they could play around without risking Caity getting hurt. It kept their undivided attention for about 30 minutes which is really good for their short attention spans.

Pros:
– The WubbleX is different and fun.
– Great for a wide age range (my kids are 1 and 3).
– Only takes 5 minutes to prepare.

Cons:
– Although the WubbleX seemed durable, even as Caity was pinching it, I have seen a few people say that theirs popped soon after opening. I can’t say what caused theirs to pop so quickly but it’s important to remember that this is just a heavy duty balloon and can’t sustain too much abuse.

– Since it takes about 1 whole can to fill the WubbleX it seems more like a one time WOW factor toy great for parties or in the closet for those days when you need a miracle to get through.

One thought on “WubbleX Anti Gravity Ball {Review}

  1. This is the worst money I think I’ve ever spent. It is just a balloon with helium. Except that balloons with helium float for weeks. My daughter played with this for maybe one hour before it popped on the vacuum cleaner handle (ya that’s now even sharp.). I would urge everyone from buying this junk unless you just HAVE to have it.
