Mega Bubble Man has been making his own bubble wands since 1992. It all started after he saw a bubble show in Utica, NY and was inspired from above to become a bubbleman!
Jim Livi, aka Mega Bubble Man, has been using quality materials from hardware stores and fabric stores to produce each wand.
His wands come in various sizes from the Mayor of Bubblopolis, Mr Roy G Biv, who is about 6" in diameter to Frederick Von Fruggle, the Mega Bubble, who is about 32" in diameter. Big Boy Bartholomew is a bit smaller around 25". There is also another wand called "Stretch!" whose diameter is around 20" but has a very long neck of up to 15'. One more wand created the world's tallest outdoor bubble at 30 feet tall. You can see that here.
Other citizens from Bubblopolis are Lil Sister Bubble, Big Brother Bubble, and Baker Bob Bubble. They are around 10' in diameter.
Wands start with an 18" handle made of cpvc piping joined by a t-shape of the same material. The t-joint holds the "hoop" and handle together.
The "hoop" part is a long piece of flex piping that is bent into a circle and attaches to the handle. Now the hoop is decorated with a kind of cotton lace fabric or various other materials, like a colorful ace bandage or even flannel material. The material is stretched around the pipe and then sewed as needed.
The wand's handle is also decorated with colored tapes. All this is then joined by ties and a bottom cap at the base of the wand handle.
Mega Bubble Man's wands have lasted over 20 years! Many times he gives them away to children, parents or teachers so the bubble making fun can continue on and on. A Bubble Buck has a bubble formula mix for one gallon of solution. Some Bubble Bucks have to "secret" ingredients Mr Livi uses in his bubble shows. Other Bucks just have a simple formula.
See some of the photos below of children who have received a free Mega Bubble Wand at public library, school assembly, birthday parties, town events and more! Mega Bubble Man loves passing on the joy of bubble making.
