tubbubble® - Full Fun Pack Review by Amanda Hopkins


When it comes to bath time, I am always on the lookout for ways to make it fun without a lot of added chemicals. I found just that with the tubbubble – Full Fun Pack ($22.95). This pack came with the Bath Volcano, Crackling Bath Crystals, Foaming Bath Pebbles, and Bubble Bath Pouch. Each of these was a whole new fun way to take a bath!

All these products are made from natural, organic ingredients. When you use these in the bathtub, you do not need to use extra soap and they moisturize the skin. So not only are you adding fun to the bath, you are taking steps out of what you need to do for your child. This is a win-win in my book!

The Bath Volcano was one of our favorites. We were able to have a fun, foaming volcano that lasted a good five minutes. Every time that the foaming slowed, we were able to dunk it back under the water and the foaming would start again. Not only did this clean and moisturize, but all the products also change the color of the water and add a slight scent.

The Crackling Bath Crystals reminded me of pop rocks, but for the bath! Both of my girls loved them. These changed the water to a light green color. The Foaming Bath Pebbles was a fun one. This came in a tube and we were able to dunk it in and out of the water. Like the volcano, when the foaming stops, we would dunk it back in the water to get more foaming action. The Bath Pouch was my youngest daughter’s favorite. This squishy pouch produced bubbles every time we would squeeze it. Not only that, but it was fun to use this to wash down with.

We loved playing with these fun products in the bath. They were a fun way to change things up without worry about chemicals that we are trying to get out of our house. Both of my girls (5 and 9) wanted to do them all without sharing. We did have to compromise on this one. Some of the scents seemed off, but I think I was getting used to the natural scents versus the chemical scents I am used to. My girls had no issues. They just wanted more.

If you are looking for something fun to add to bath time for your kids that is safe (following European natural cosmetic requirements), these are for you! My five-year-old recommends the Bath Pouch and my nine-year-old recommends the Bath Volcano.
