I bought this for a birthday present so I haven’t been able to use it. But it appears to be everything it claims it is. I’m very glad it came with an additional bubble solution container because you know that it will empty fast. It makes noise but that can be turned off. It’s not extremely loud like some toys and wouldn’t be so bad outside, but inside it would be annoying. Not that this bubble blaster would be used indoors anyways. It seems to be pretty sturdy.
