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.

    I bought this too but the ballon is very fragile, not suitable for kid who are too “rude” :P

    Coincidentally, I also bought a few of these bubble balloon for my girls. They love playing it.

    USed to buy it during schooling time. Each packet priced at 0.20. Mom will scold me the moment she saw this in my bag.heheheh

    my favourite those days.. used to blow directly using the mouth w/o the straw by bursting a hole and then patch it back.. hehehe..
