Crayola "colored" Bubbles

I was in Target the other day and as I was rushing to get some last minute things for dinner, I stopped dead in my tracks when I spotted this...COLORED BUBBLES! Of course I had to try them out! They had blue, green and fuchsia, so I got the fuchsia---(naturally ha). 
I was so excited for Sage to play with them (and even more excited to see what the bubbles looked like)! 
We ventured outside, and between the extremely fuchsia liquid (watch out...it STAINS) and the NOT SO fuchsia bubbles I was sorely disappointed. They really should call these Colorful (when popped) bubbles--b/c when they pop they stain whatever it lands on (in our case it was Josh's white sweatshirt and the sidewalk...he wasn't too thrilled)
Oh well, it entertained her for about 1.2 seconds--I mean really though how less fuchsia could these be? Moral of the story--false advertising gets me every time. dang it.

  2. I bought the blue and orange ones for my boys last year. You can definitely see the color in the blue bubbles (the orange, not so much) and they look pretty cool, but I agree that they are messy. Both kids were speckled blue, as was the grass, the sidewalk and me.

  3. Aw what a bummer. At least if it wouldn't stain it wouldn't be as big of a deal, but the stain add insult.

  5. oh yes, we tried these and the blue stained EVERYTHING!! cool, but not so cool. at least they say that on the label. i had to hide them from the kids and eventually throw them away. great idea though, huh? maybe if their bubble dye was as washable as their markers are...

  6. We were bamboozled by these at Target too! Can't blame you the idea of colored bubbles was too much for us to pass up also!

  8. I always fall for the scented bubbles. It is really a terrible idea, I almost always end up inhaling a bubble or two

  9. Crayola just finshed a lawsuit because of these! First set claimed "won't stain" or no warning- they just paid out big time to those who orginally bought and seeked damages! Crazy! over bubbles no less!! Cute & fun times to me!!

  12. i just read this post, and i had the same experience. i saw them and thought what a great idea! got them home and regretted i got them, they drip on everything and when they pop they stain anything in the path of the exploding bubble. you think they would have had least made them not stain, i just wonder if they still sell them? they sounded like a great idea and turned out to be a terrible idea
