About this deal

Walsh, Tim (2008). WHAM-O SUPERBOOK: Celebrating 60 Years Inside the Fun Factory!. Chronicle Books. ISBN 978-0-8118-6445-9. Besides the potential for spills when liquid plastic was handled by children, the substance also emitted noxious fumes. The fumes could become concentrated inside the straw, making it dangerous to inhale through the straw while inflating a bubble. The toy was not recommended for children under 5. [2] Because of these problems, Super Elastic Bubble Plastic was eventually discontinued. [3] This type of toy is banned in Canada and Super Elastic Bubble Plastic was the subject of a Canadian recall in 2016. [4] Similar products exist under other brand names. Chemically, the bubbles contained polyvinyl acetate dissolved in acetone, with ethyl acetate plastic fortifiers added. The acetone evaporated upon bubble inflation leaving behind a solidified plastic film. [1] Super Elastic Bubble Plastic was the brand name for a children's toy manufactured from the 1970s through the 80s by Wham-O. It consisted of a tube of viscous plastic substance and a thin straw used to blow semi-solid bubbles. A pea-sized amount of liquid plastic was squeezed from the tube and made into a ball. One end of the straw was then inserted into the ball, and the user would blow into the other end, inflating the plastic into a bubble. The bubble could then be removed from the straw by pinching the hole closed, sealing the air inside.
