Mr. Bubble 50th Birthday Bash and Giveaway

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!

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!

    I do the same thing now to my almost 3 year old daughter. She loves it just like I did!

  3. denise says

    I have to say that I used Mr. Bubble when young and I bought it for my kids. But I am 46 now and still love to have bubble baths weekly to wind down and relax….

  7. says

    I have sooo many fun memories of giving bubble baths to my daughter as a baby. My son is 7 and he sill loves his Mr. Bubbles. It is the bubbles I used as a child and my kids have sensitive skin so their sensitive skin formula works great for them!

  8. Lynn Demsky says

    No matter how old I get I will never be too old for Mr. Bubbles! Happy Birthday!!! and, what a wonderful gift for one happy kid!

  9. says

    I had no clue that you can still found Mr Bubbles in stores… I need to check that out!

  10. says

    My kids grew up with Mr. Bubble, as did I and now my grandsons are using it! Mr. Bubble will live on forever because kids love it so much.

  11. Lisa says

    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

  12. says

    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!

  13. says

    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!

  14. Shelia Moore says

    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!!!

  15. says

    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.

  16. Tami says

    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!!! :)

  17. says

    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.

  18. Mary H says

    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.

  19. Shannon says

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

  20. Pauline M says

    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!)

  21. says

    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!

  22. Christina says

    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…

  23. Mia Dentice Carey says

    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)

  24. says

    I didn’t know they were still around. I haven’t seen it in any stores near me. Now I will have to look harder. My boys love bubbles, and Mr.Bubble was always really good when I was a kid!!!

  25. katklaw777 says

  27. Tiffany M in MS says

    My kids adore bubble baths…we love that Mister Bubble comes in extra gentle for us sensitive skin folks who love a good bubble bath!!

  28. says

    My brother and I grew up using Mr Bubble. Once when we were small,we filled our Great Grandmas cast iron bathtub with so many bubbles, the bubbles overtook the bathroom…Grandma was not very happy, but we did get really clean!!

    I was a fan of Mr. Bubbles when I was a child! I’ve introduced my son to it & he loves it so much he doesn’t want bath time to end!

  32. Candace says

    I loved Mr. Bubbles when I was a kid! My sister and I would put the bubbles on our faces to make beards. Now my kids do the same thing! readysetwin at gmail dot com

  33. Cyndi says

    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.
