How it works

Fisher Price has revamped its most popular toy: the Bubble Lawn Mower. The mower has been a favorite of children and parents for years, and now it’s new and improved. With an updated handle and wheels to make gripping and moving the mower a breeze, the mower also makes life-like sounds that give your child the feeling that they are really mowing the lawn. The Bubble Lawn Mower is not only great for keeping your child occupied as the mower shoots tons of bubbles out as they roll, but it also helps children work on important skills such as gross motor skills, walking and exercising. Children get to use their imaginations and spend quality time with their parents. With so much to offer, the Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower is definitely a toy that is worth buying.

Design

Design

The Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower is made to look and sound like a real lawnmower. The handle has been redesigned from an earlier version to resemble the buttons and features that would be found on a real life lawn mower, but it should be noted that the buttons cannot be pushed or moved as the handle provides just an imprint of the button to give the effect of there being actual buttons on the handle.

The body of the lawn mower is more realistic as it has a real-to-life motor that turns and makes the same noises as an actual lawn mower. The sound effect gives children the ability to pretend that they are really mowing the lawn alongside their parent as the mower glides across the grass.

On the side of the motor and body of the Bubble Lawn Mower is the area where you can fill the bubble tray and the bubbles will spew out the side of the mower as your child runs along. Since the bubbles will eventually run out, in the front of the mower is a cup holder for your bottle of bubbles. That way, as soon as the bubbles run out, you can easily refill the bubbles and get to mowing and get to bubble blowing almost immediately.
Imagination Development

Imagination Development

The most interesting aspect of the Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower is also the most well received by parents and that’s the Bubble Lawn Mower gives children the ability to really allow their imaginations to soar. The Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower is one of the tools that allow children to recreate real-life adult activities that will help them develop in a myriad of interesting ways. The first step in development is imagination.

When a child has the desire to recreate an adult activity, the child must think as if they are an adult, and in those moments, parents begin to understand and learn what their child is retaining when they hear adults talk and when they watch adults do their daily chores and activities. The child then begins to mimic those gestures and attitudes and they really allow their imaginations to soar. This type of role-playing is essential when your child plays with other kids and they create their own games. This type of role-playing is also essential in your child developing their own attitudes about certain things as they get older and start to grow and change.

Above all else, the Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower is a great entertaining activity for your child that gets them moving and playing and thinking, which is what every parent wants when their child plays and grows.
Physical Exercise

Physical Exercise

Today’s society is flooded with digital entertainment on a number of devices. As a result, many parents find that their child is less likely to go out and play and interact with other kids face to face. Many parents try and break this specific habit early by encouraging their children to have fun out of doors and in the fresh air. The Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower is one of those toys that require a child to get up and get moving. The lawn mower requires your child to run or walk while gripping on to the handle of the mower, which helps them with their balance.

The walking and running help your child develop further balance as well as building leg muscles and exerting themselves with cardiovascular exercise. Using the mower out of doors also requires that your child gets out of the house and away from screens and devices that may make them sedentary and lazy. With the Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower, your child will get up and get active and begin to enjoy physical play that will further develop into climbing and running and sports.
Gross Motor Skills

Gross Motor Skills

Aside from the physical activities that your child will engage in while pushing and running with the Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower, they will also be engaging their gross motor skills that will help them move and grip better. The gripping of the handle of the mower teaches your child to develop their hand/eye coordination skills as they grip the handle and then move their body forward while continuing to not only hold on to the mower, but also steering the mower in the direction they want the mower to go. They will be able to zigzag or go in a straight line or move backward and forward all while using their gripping skills and motor skills to remain on a direct path.

Your child will also get to work out their dexterity skills when they are pouring the bubbles into the side of the mower. Your child will be able to remove the bottle from the front of the motor where the bubbles are stored and then take off the cap, pour the proper amount into the bubble dispenser, return the cap, and then return the bottle. All of this will be done by your child and they will then further develop the skills they are already working on while just running and playing with their new toy.
The Bubbles

The Bubbles

Many parents have found that the bubbles that come with the Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower do not work as well as other brands of bubbles. Some parents have chosen to buy their own bubbles and use them in the mower because the Fisher-Price bubbles don’t seem to blow enough bubbles with the amount of bubble solution the mower requires.

The bubbles come out of the mower through the motor. While the motor makes the real-life sound of an actual lawn mower, the mechanism inside of the motor is a bubble machine. When you pour the bubbles into the bubble dispenser on the side of the mower, the bubbles drain into the motor and when your child pushes the mower and the motor begins to spin, it then produces bubbles and the bubbles start to spew out of the side of the motor next to the dispenser and your child will begin to run faster to make more bubbles.

It should be noted; however, that there may be a design flaw with some of the Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mowers in that when you put the bubbles into the dispenser, the solution may leak out of the dispenser causing you to lose some of your bubble solutions. It may serve you better to put in just a little bit at a time and see exactly how much the mower can hold before it starts to leak. This may also require you to fill the dispenser more often, but what you choose to do is ultimately up to you.
Quality Time

Quality Time

The biggest benefit of the Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower is that it gets parents and children to play together. Because the mower is best used out of doors, it requires adult supervision whenever the mower is being used. Adults not only need to be present because the child is outside, but adults should also be present in the event that the bubbles need to be refilled. Although your child will eventually learn how to do this on their own, there may be spilling and there may even be tasting of the bubble solution, and parents should be present to prevent both of these things from happening.

By being present, parents can run and play with their children or parents can do their lawn mowing chore with their little one is by their side “helping” them get the job done. It is in these moments that children will pick up the gestures and attitudes of their parents, and this is a great opportunity for parents to teach their children the lessons they will need to learn in order to grow up to be efficient adults.
Age Range

Age Range

The Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower is recommended for children from the ages of two-years-old to five-years-old. Because the height of the handle of the mower is around 19” tall, any child younger than two will be too small and any child above five will be too tall. The ages of two to five are also the perfect ages for your child to develop the skills that are learned while using the mower. Also, when your child gets to be older than five-years-old, they may not be so easily entertained by a toy that blows bubbles and is quite simple to operate and use.
Price

Price

The Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower comes with a very inexpensive price tag. The price of the mower falls in the low to mid range of toy prices. The price that you would have to pay for the mower is easily a part of any parent’s budget. What’s great about the price is that your child will get to do so many things with the mower and grow and develop so easily with the mower that it seems almost like a steal to pay so little for a toy that offers so much.

The mower is designed to be used outside for your child to do a little role-playing, but the mower can also be used in the house as well if you have the space to move around. You will be paying very little for an indoor and outdoor toy that will entertain your child for a long period of time and requires very little effort or hard work from the parents.
