To all mommies of 2 to 3-year-old toddlers who love, love, love soap bubbles: here’s a lawnmower they can push, and it makes loads of bubbles 😉 They don’t run in danger of licking the disgusting soap by blowing the bubbles themselves. They just walk and it happens! Lyons Cub is maybe a little bit too big for that already, but he was very proud to show off his lawnmower on the playground. He can “fill the tank” all by himself without spilling, and knew the blue “on” and “off” button right away. The lawnmower uses three AA batteries, which are not included. They lasted us quite a while.
Be careful, though: this lawnmower is not a walking aid for beginning walkers! It’s too fragile and wobbly for that; baby will fall over if leaning against it too much. It’s for 2-3 year old kiddos who can walk well already. When kiddo uses it on an uneven lawn, the solution spills easily since the compartment for the soap is open on the top. (Better get a model with a closed compartment.) Best is to walk on an even lawn or street, or to use it stationary to catch the bubbles! Older toddlers who don’t tip the lawnmower that often and don’t take off running will have the most fun. It’s noisy and rattles quite a bit, as you can see from the videos — just as you would expect from a real lawnmower 😉 But mommy will gladly endure that if her child is happy.
There are different kinds of these lawnmowers that look very similar; my recommendation is to get one without music, because you wouldn’t want to hear a song playing for hours when your child walks around on an afternoon you want to chill. Also, get a big container with liquid soap, because the little bottle(s) that come with the lawnmower will be empty in no time. We got loads of little 60 ml bottles at ALDI, which we refill from a big bottle. This way, we don’t have to haul a 1 liter bottle around to the playgrounds with us. As you can see, Lyons Cub was terribly disappointed the soap was empty already and asked for a refill:
He got his refill, of course!! If you have a tall toddler or a kid over 3, the handle of the lawnmower will be too short and he/she will need to bend over. For us, it is just perfect at this stage, and we will soon be able to pass it down.
