Switch adapted bubble machine

Children love blowing bubbles. So, why not make a switch adapted bubble machine ? That’s what we did on Thursday night. We went along to the local Early Learning Centre and bought one of their bubble machines.

Later that evening, modifications complete, we had a switch adapted bubble machine working in both regular and switch modes. Look closely and you’ll see the switch socket we added on the side of the toy. Any standard 3.5mm switch can be connected to it and, when pressed, the toy blows bubbles galore.

Update July 2013: since we introduced the original in 2008 I’ve lost count how many switch adapted bubble machines we’ve produced but I know it’s at least 2000+ The latest version, Freddie Fish Bubbles is the third generation bubble machine we do. Buy now from the special-needs-toys website.
