F.A.Q.
What To Do If

The bubble solution is swallowed

While non-toxic, it is best not to drink our bubble solution. If your child drinks the solution, do not have them drink water or try to throw the solution up. Consult a doctor if they become ill.

The bubble solution gets in your eyes or on sensitive skin

Rinse off immediately with cool water and consult a doctor if it causes an allergic reaction or other symptoms occur.

The bubble solution is spilled on clothes or furniture

Wash off immediately with cool water. Clean furniture surfaces with a damp rag.

An unusual reaction occurs

Consult a doctor and contact Dulcop by phone (704-332-1200) or via email at safety@dulcopamerica.com.

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 Play

02/09/16


Play isn’t just all fun and games. Several studies have proven that play is an essential part of a child’s development. Free play helps kids develop the neurons at the front of their brain.

“Without play experience, those neurons aren’t changed,” said Sergio Pellis, a researcher at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada in an interview with NPR. “Whether it’s rough-and-tumble play or two kids deciding to build a sand castle together, the kids themselves have to negotiate, well, what are we going to do in this game? What are the rules we are going to follow?” Pellis said. Play is all about developing the tools to handle complex social interactions and quick-thinking. Playing in groups with other children, especially, helps children navigate these interactions and develop language and communication skills.

Bubbles are one of the best toys for a child’s free play development! Playing with bubbles helps children practice their fine motor skills (grasping the wand and playing our unique maze game cap), communication (asking to blow more, pointing out big bubbles), hand-eye coordination (blowing through the wand), and visual tracking skills (watching the bubbles until they pop).

Young children can practice language skills (“Wow that bubble is so big!”) and learn cause-and-effect, by watching what happens when they blow gently through the wand as well (Surprise! Bigger bubbles!). Older children can even start to learn the physics behind the magic of bubbles and concepts such as reflections and convex objects.

Check out this article from What to Expect, and this one from NPR that talk about bubbles and play.

So go outside and play, and let us know in the comments how your child learns with bubbles!
