got this for my 2 year old in april. it offically died last week. puts out an amazing amount of bubbles but doesnt use a lot of bubble solution. after its on for awhile it starts to get clogged and you get big bubbles that stick to the machine. we would just wipe the top off and it would work fine. batteries need replacing pretty often. but for the price i would recommend it. [$] for 2 months entertainment works for me. and my daughter absolutely loves it. going to buy another one.
