Childhood memories: Blowing Bubble Balloon

When I was younger, there was no iPad or whatever Pad to entertain me. One of my favourite activities was cycling and I always cycled to the nearest sundry shop to get this:

Blowing Balloon in a tub that smells like glue. Anybody remembers this? 

During the Chinese New Year holidays, we introduced this to Ethan.

I squeezed it out for him and let him blow through the straw.
