I think tin foil knights sounds so fun, and if no boys show, ill just return the foil to the kitchen!

Those activities all look like so much fun and I can imagine my two girls would enjoy them all. We recently had a party with giant bubbles (made with ropes rather than hoops) and they were just the best. Everyone loved them – the kids and the grown ups all had so much fun making bubbles, popping bubbles, jumping through bubbles… It is definitely our new favourite activity for parties.

In this case, I believe the campaign is about encouraging families to keep adventuring. Some parents feel their adventuring days are over once kids arrive on the scene, so Hyundai provided some true out-of-the-comfort-zone experiences for in-real-life families, which will hopefully spark adventures for more families.

I swear, diaper bags should come with their own bubble bottle compartment (kidding!).

Giant bubbles. They are a hit every time! And there are recipes for making extra-strong bubble solution — they definitely work best for these over-sized versions.

I don’t know that it is OK to include kids in these scripted promotional events. Who wants to have a scripted childhood? Sorry – I don’t mean to be critical, as I love your site and understand the economic need for sponsored posts (and I enjoy most of your sponsored posts), but something about this bugs me.

How is marketing working here?

The party hosts invited kids to step inside and be enveloped by the bubble. We didn’t have kids then but I found it really cool.

Our almost two-year-old loves chasing the regular sized bubbles around the park. It’s a great way to meet new kids too — everyone seems to like them!

Wed, 08 May 2013 14:15:14 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=35732#comment-460412 I read Rebecca Woolf’s post about it on Girl’s Gone Child. It sounds like a lot of fun! I’ve never tried giant bubbles but my girls would go crazy for it… I may try it out soon.
