YOU MUST PRIME THIS FIRST FOR 10 SECONDS. Hold open for at least 10 seconds (no bubbles will come out) then close and then reopen and the bubbles never stop and I mean never stop. I bought mine from a catalog a couple of years ago. My granddaughter just turned 2 so I brought it out. At first, I thought it was junk but if YOU PRIME IT BEFORE USE, it works just fine, EVERY TIME. I am so thrilled with it I wanted to get more which is what brought me to this site. I cannot believe nobody else figured out it needs to be primed every time before use, then it shoots never ending bubbles!! I shoot them out my sunroof sometimes at red lights and off our boat parked at the dock. It brings a smile to even the grumpiest people!!!!

My son received this as a gift from a friend for his 2nd birthday. I was excited for him because he LOVES bubbles, but this thing was a huge disappointment. For starters, it took forever to get the actual toy out of the packaging. Next, it was hard to get the battery cover off just to insert the two AA batteries, which is does NOT come with, btw. The hippo "mouth" hardly opens wide enough to be able to fill the bubble solution into the container, but I managed without spilling any. Then get ready to wear your hand out .. you have to squeeze a handle over and over again before any bubbles come out of the hippo's mouth. Also, they don't ALWAYS come out .. just seems to be arbitrary. It's great while they last but they never last long .. so you have to keep pumping. This thing wore my adult hand out fast so I don't think a kid would have much more success. I am hoping that I can return this thing at our local super center because it was a gift and I have no receipt. I dare not tell the kid's mom who gave us this what a piece of junk this is .. so if I can't return it then it'll get trashed. What a shame. I might also write the company to let them know how poorly I think this toy is designed.

Even after "priming" the product as other reviews recommended, it never worked. We held the handle attempting to get a coating on the wand multiple times for several minutes with no success. Waste of money.

    They must have udpated this product, because we have never had a problem with the one we purchased this year. My children played with them all summer long with no leaking or any problems. Still blows perfect bubbles! Love it!

        I purchased this for my 2 year old granddaughter and it worked a little on the first couple of tries, but hasn't worked since. Too hard to use and now it doesn't work at all. I thought it would be easier than blowing bubbles through the wands, but not worth it. If it worked every time, then I wouldn't mind paying the money.

            Waste of money!!! My son loves bubbles so I thought this would be a great gift for his second birthday. He was so excited to play with it. We added the bubbles and batteries, but it never worked. I tried all sorts of trouble shooting with it, but it would never produce a single bubble, even holding it down for two minutes. My son was so upset and crying that there were no bubbles. It broke my heart watching him cry over no bubbles. Don's waste your time or money.

                If I could rate it lower I would! The battery area broke before I ever put batteries in it and the bubbles leaked the bottom! My son was so upset that he couldn't play with it!

                  I received this item to review for my blog. My son and I absolutely love it. It is a touch tricky to fill, simply because of the location of the refill hole. It is located in the mouth of the hippo, so it takes a little maneuvering to fill without spilling. But I got it done!

                  The bubble trigger is located on the handle, and I had no problem squeezing it for a long time to make TONS AND TONS of bubbles!! My son is 2, and he couldn't hold the hippo and squeezze the bubble trigger at the same time. But if the hippo was sitting on the ground, he could then squeeze with both hands and had no problem making bubbles either.

                  The yard literally fills with bubbles when we use it. I highly recommend this product. We think it is fantastic and look forward to using it all summer long!!

                  Disclosure: I received this item for my honest review. I was not compensated in any other way, and all opinions are 100% honest and are not swayed by outside sources.

                    My daughter loves her bubbly hippo! She squeals with laughter when the bubbles start rushing out. It saves me from having to sit there and blow bubbles all the time for her. A good tip I read was to prime the bubbles before you get it going and that totally worked. Also, I have a little funnel that I use to pour in the bubble solution so it doesn't go all over. My biggest tip is not to fill it up all the way (only about 3/4) and place it on a flat surface to bubble away, then it doesn't leak at all.

                    After the surgical proceedure to free this little guy from his packaging and then a second surgery to insert batteries....we found that it blew great bubbles and lots of them...however.....it never ever....EVER stops....it will "rest" for a moment, but then keeps right on. Then it will randomly stop....and turn itself back on at various times...had to take the batteries out to rememdy!! Now, this could be a glitch in our little guy as it was a gift and packaging too mutilated to return. Also, found difficult for our 2 year old to "squeeze" the trigger. Cute item though. I give it a "3" b.c I'm still not sure if this was a glitch in our product or an overall issue as I don't see any other posts about this issue in my scan of the reviews.
