by David Stein Confused by all the claims for big, huge, and giant bubbles? No surprise---the giant bubble sport I started in 1984 is now exploding world-wide. And how big is “big”? Let's define our terms:
BIG bubbles = 8-foot spheres, 20-foot tubes or more MEDIUM bubbles = 4-foot spheres, 10-foot tubes SMALL bubbles = 2-foot spheres, 5-foot tubes DIY = Do-it-yourself instructions, no product is being offered
Below are some typical Google listings for "big bubbles." (Yes, the items with asterisks ***** are my own. See Bubble Thing customer reviews.)
Beware of false "world record" claims. Guinness Records in the "largest free-floating bubble" category have been grossly mistaken for years. See the current world record soap bubbles in the contests we sponsor on Facebook.
