Mr. Bubble 50th Birthday Bash and Giveaway

by Janice

Meet me in Minneapolis for Mr. Bubble’s 50th Birthday Bash!!!

My kids LOVE bubble baths — and since Mr. Bubble sent us a batch of Bubble Bath and Foam Soap, my kids have been soaking and playing in the tub for hours each night!


This Saturday, my nine year old son Jackson and I will be in Minneapolis for Mr. Bubbles 50th Birthday Bash! Sadly, I have to leave Olivia home so she can attend the dress rehearsal for her ballet recital on Sunday. (Jackson and I are catching a late night flight home to be at her performance on Sunday!)

It is too bad Olivia will miss this MASSIVE Bubble Bash at the incredible Waterpark of America in Bloomington, MN. I know Jackson will have a BLAST — and I so hope that some of you who live in Minneapolis can come out to party bubble-style with us!

Mr. Bubble – childhood icon for 50 years

For 50 years, Mr. Bubble has been making kids smile and “Making getting clean as much fun as getting dirty!” To celebrate 50 wonderful years as an iconic brand and best selling bubble bath, Mr. Bubble is throwing this huge birthday bash – and Jackson and I are flying out for the party in the morning!

23 MageeMommy June 10, 2011 at 8:40 am

One of my recent favorites is my toddler using all the foamy spray stuff at one time on the bathtub when not even taking a bath. LOL


24 Becky M June 10, 2011 at 8:56 am

My boys love Mr. Bubble!


25 Lisa June 10, 2011 at 9:08 am

I remember using Mr. Bubble when I was a kid. I think it only came in powder form back then. I also remember the commercial with the jingle, “Mr. Bubble in the tub gets you squeaky clean”. altern147 [at] yahoo [dot] com


26 Susan Heim June 10, 2011 at 9:18 am

One of my boys has been swimming on a swim team almost every night. When he gets home, he just wants to soak in a nice warm bubble bath! He would love all the Mr. Bubble products for his bath!


27 Vilmarys June 10, 2011 at 9:22 am

My daughter loves bath time. I can’t get her out of the tub, lol. Thanks for the chance!


28 Mimi June 10, 2011 at 9:23 am

I hope I’m able to go. FYI it’s stinking COLD here! Bring a good jacket. I remember growing up with Mr. Bubble in the bathtub! Who can forget a pink bottle like that? It always made me so happy!


29 cher June 10, 2011 at 9:43 am

How could I ever forgot that pink bottle from my baths when I was little!


30 Alison Shaffer June 10, 2011 at 9:52 am

Mr. Bubble is such a favorite. simple, clean and classic. I used it as a kid, my kids used Mr. Bubble, and I still buy it for gifts! so cool.


31 Deb Anderson June 10, 2011 at 9:53 am

“So clean your mom won’t know you!” :)


32 Shelia Moore June 10, 2011 at 10:01 am

I have used “Mr Bubbles” to get my 3 yr old granddaughter over her fear of bathtime!! When it’s fun, it can’t be scary!!!


33 Rachel McGuire June 10, 2011 at 11:12 am

Mr Bubble has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. all three of my kids gave grown up with him too. i have some great photo’s of my kids playing in mountains of bubbles in the tub. O love those moments.


34 Tami June 10, 2011 at 11:18 am

We love Mr. Bubble!!!! And it is a “Special Treat” for my 6 & 8 year old boys when they get to use it!!! The other day I yelled out DOUBLE BATH with MR. BUBBLE and they were SO EXCITED!!!! The bubbles were endless fun and they had pruny fingers and toes by the time they came out!!!! The simplest joys of childhood fun!!! :)


35 Malissa Porter June 10, 2011 at 12:02 pm

I so remember helping my mom pour the pink powder into the tub and watch it turn into bubbles. Loved it. Now there are so many more products that my kids get to enjoy.


36 Mary H June 10, 2011 at 12:27 pm

My favorite memory of Mr. Bubble was his song–Mr. Buba-buba-bubble in the tub-a-tub-a-tubble. At least that is the way I remember it from when I was very little.


37 Shannon June 10, 2011 at 12:37 pm

I love Mr. Bubble & wish his party was closer! I would love to win this prize for my son. He loves bubble baths!

We love Mr Bubbles. Thanks!


40 Christine Jensen June 10, 2011 at 1:57 pm

I used to LOVE Mr Bubble Bubble Bath! There is nothing quite like sitting in a tub full of suds; giving yourself a bubble beard and writing on the walls with bubbles


41 Heidi Daily June 10, 2011 at 3:24 pm

I love mr bubble!


42 Becky Lancette June 10, 2011 at 3:30 pm

I can remember when I was about 9 and my mom got me a pink bottle of bubbles. Love bubbles.


43 Charity S June 10, 2011 at 4:09 pm

I remember taking baths with Mr Bubble. I so loved that pink bottle.


44 Pauline M June 10, 2011 at 4:30 pm

When my kids were younger, Mr. Bubbles was part of the daily ritual. I would add the color dyes that Avon uses in their bathtime wall painting sets and make some colored bubbles for the kids which they loved (mind you, the color was not great, but I think they really appreciated the effort!)


45 Jennifer June 10, 2011 at 4:32 pm

I loved Mr. Bubbles when I was a kid!! My kids haven’t tried them yet but I would love to win some of their products to let them try!


46 **Nicole** June 10, 2011 at 5:36 pm

Oh my word–my three year old ADORES bubbles! This would make her year if I was to win :) While I can’t think of any specific Mr. Bubble stories, I’m sure if we won this we would make lots of them for the future!


47 Christina June 10, 2011 at 6:05 pm

My sister and I used Mr. Bubbles as a kid and so do my kids and their cousins. It’s all about making the weird hairstyles once you have tons of soap in your hair…


48 melisa June 10, 2011 at 7:40 pm

Yay! I remember using Mr Bubble growing up!


49 Mia Dentice Carey June 10, 2011 at 9:19 pm

I SOOOOOOO wished I lived closer to MN!!!!!
Hope you have a GREAT time & Wish Mr. Bubble’s a very HAPPY 50th BIRTHDAY for me!

My favorite Mr. Bubbles memory is from college….the entire women’s cross country team all sent away for Mr Bubble’s T-shirts…(Makes getting clean almost as much fun as getting dirty….LOL)

86 Cyndi June 26, 2011 at 8:47 am

I loved Mr Bubble as a kid. Now my two children love it as well. As soon as I start the bath my daughter finds the bottle and says “Bubble! Bubble!” over and over until I add some. The bubbles sure do make it more funto get clean. Even when they are playing in the dirt & mud outside, when I say time for a bubble bath, they run to get inside.
