ZUBBLES! Answered

15 years (and $3M!) in the making, finally the world's first colored bubbles have landed. And popped. And disappeared.

Inventor Tim Kehoe spent nearly half his life creating these mesmerizing wonders that are sure to appeal to children and adults alike!

Thanks to some seriously novel chemistry, the stain they appear to leave when they break vanishes in seconds.

Go blow some up today! They can only be purchased here

These were in popular science four years ago and I did a report on them. They were supposed to come out in 2007 but they never did come out. It is good to see that they finally made them.

Hmm... of course they are like double the price range of normal bubbles. And that is late shipping (7-10 days for shipping)! But anyway, they seem awesome! Once the price comes down, I will go to Toys R' Us and buy some xD
