My kids love this little bubble gun. I love that you can turn the sound off and still use the bubble machine. I've bought many bubble machines in the past and the ones with sound always end up "loosing" their batteries. LOL! This bubble blower doesn't drive me craZy with it's sounds so I don't mind when they use it inside but I REALLY love that you can turn it off. I have already recommended this bubble machine to some family and friends.
