The ball in the maze game is swallowed or placed up a nose

The ball in the maze game is considered a small part, and a choking hazard by UL standards. However, its size has been tested and certified to pass through the trachea. The material of the ball can be detected by x-ray in case it becomes lodged up a nose or placed in another orifice.

Are Dulcop’s Bubbles Safe?

We take great care to adhere to all the latest industry safety standards, and pride ourselves on going above and beyond them. Our bubble solution is non-toxic and uses top-notch ingredients. Our automated production line discards products that fail to meet our standards.

What is the Recommended Age?

While safe to have and play around infants and small toddlers, we recommend three years and older for independent play.

Do Bubbles Expire?

Our bubbles do not expire. Both the solution and the bottles are designed to withstand extreme temperatures (122°F and -22°F). Once opened, we recommend using the product in a short time span in order to get the best performance from the bubble solution. But no harm will come to you if you don’t!

What is the EC Type Certificate?

This is the highest level of certification achievable in Europe, and issued only by a notified body. The EC Type verifies all regulatory, technical, health, and safety standards as set by the Directive are met during the production process. To our knowledge, Dulcop is the only bubble manufacturer to receive this important certificate.

What is TUV Certification?

TÜV Rheinland Product Safety and Quality Certification marks show that our products have met applicable safety requirements and quality standards. Our production plant and products have been investigated by an accredited third party, which also carries out regular surveillance audits.

What is Kathon?

Kathon is a highly irritating preservative and powerful allergen. Even though not required by law, Dulcop does not use this harmful chemical in our products. For us, safety and concern for our customers always comes first. Unfortunately, other bubble manufacturers still use kathon to kill bacteria. Always check to make sure the bubbles you use, even if not ours, are kathon-free.

The Science of Bubble Colors

06/07/18


One of the most wonderful parts about blowing bubbles is seeing how they create magical colors in the light. As you take a deep breath in and blow through the wand, tiny rainbows spread across every bubble. How does this magical phenomenon happen? Well, if you take a closer look at what makes up a bubble then you will begin to understand why we see rainbows.

Bubbles are like balloons filled with air, but instead of being made out of latex, they’re made out of layers of soap and water. Picture the outside of the bubble like a water sandwich. The soap layers, which act like the bread, have a layer of water in between, which acts like the filling. The outside layer reflects light that comes through the bubble. Because the layers are not even, are constantly shifting as the air pressure moves within them, and light hits them at different angles, the rate that the light waves reflect back to your eye is also different. Some of these waves interfere with each other causing some to become brighter, or more intense, while others cancel each other out and disappear altogether. What is left, and what we actually see, are called “interference colors”, which happen to look like rainbows to our eyes.

As the soap and water layers move around, the colors move and change as well. You can visualize this part by thinking of the air as being a paintbrush and the bubble a canvas. The colors begin to change when air touches the bubble due to the pressure. Since the bubble is super thin, when there is too much air pressure on the bubble, it pops!

Cool, right? Now you know you don’t have to wait until the next rainy day to see a rainbow. Just grab a bottle of bubbles, step outside, and watch the magic happen!

We created an activity sheet showing the layers of a bubble, which you can download by clicking this link: Science of Bubble Download Sheet. Color in the parts that are water and the parts that are soap to discover how a bubble looks up close. We’d love to see your artwork when you are done!
