If you thought all bubbles were round, then you're in for a BIG surprise!
Square bubbles, cubic bubbles, spiral bubbles, saddle-shaped bubbles, wormhole bubbles, parabolic bubbles - Discover a whole new world of bubble-making that's highly enlightening and tons of fun for the whole family.
Quick question: If you had four space stations spread out like the points of a triangular prism and you had to build a resource station at a point that was equidistant from each, where would you build it?
Not sure? Why not ask a bubble?
Build a triangular prism with the Zome Tools and then dip it into your bubble solution. Pull it out and amazingly the bubble walls all meet at a singular point in the middle of the prism!
Now, what happens when you try it with a cube? The same thing, you think?
Dip in the cube, and WOW! - Instead of a singular point, the bubble makes a flat square. Use a straw to add a bubble to the center, and yet another WOW! - The bubble square becomes a bubble cube!
Follow along with the detailed instructions to build all kinds of wild prisms and structures. Hypothesize what kind of bubbles YOU think they'll make, and then dip them to find out.
You can even build a dodecahedron (A 3D structure where each side is a pentagon), and then dip it to create a mini dodecahedron bubble inside!
Complete with all the tools and information you need to build all kinds of structures, including those of your OWN design, there's no telling how many bubbles you'll discover with the Zome Tool Crazy Bubbles set.
Zome Tool - Crazy Bubbles
Zome Tool set for making amazing bubbles using 3D structures
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 5 years of age.
Bubbles like never before.

Who doesn't love bubbles? This was a little scientific and so it was also a fun thought adventure. Talking about why the bubbles were able to keep shape. (Hydrogen bonds and all.)
It takes a bit to set up everything and it's a little repetitive, but you can do some more if you get another set/ expansion.
My daughter thought it would "make bubbles that would float in the air"
She was disappointed that the bubbles were only in the forms, not in the air. She is 7 years old. She has already played with many objects at home, and made objects herself to make different shaped bubbles. It was not a really fun toy or project to work with at her age, maybe for someone younger who hasn't experimented with many ways to bend the shapes of bubbles.
No bubble blowing, but a whole lot of bubble fun! Don't limit Zome Tool to just bubbles, construct all sorts of structures. But if your child isn't floating with happiness, visit our Returns & Exchanges Center. Our customer care gives a clear view of service. We contacted our customer directly.
The bubble wands were easy for my 8 yr old to assemble, but they showed some designs that required more pieces so he was a little disappointed. The bubbles we could make were really neat looking. The bubble recipe worked real well. We were trying with some success to use the straw to blow bubbles in other bubble, but some more ideas in the directions would be useful.

This product is excellently designed and fascinating to our 9 year old granddaughter. There are a number of videos about it on Youtube which can help a child (and parents) understand its capabilities and potential. I would recommend buying two of these if you want your child to be able to make some of the more complex and fascinating structures that it is capable of producing.
The video on the Fatbrain site is a good one too, and it is not available on Youtube.
