Lots of bubbles and I recommend sitting in the first few rows. Our 4 year old son enjoyed the show, especially the mass of bubbles at the end, the puppetry gave an extra dimension but as the sad story of the Little Match Girl developed, it seemed a bit depressing! Bubbles definitely were the best thing.

I saw the Amazing bubble man a couple of years ago with my then 3 year old nephew. He focuses totally on bubbles and takes a slightly more serious take on all the different types of bubbles he can make. However, we left feeling that the Amazing bubble man didn't like kids that much, which was a bit weird.

For younger kids, I would definitely recommend Milkshake the the Winter Bubble.

High energy, fantastic clowning, wacky, off the wall, funny, had no idea what was going to happen next & every trick performed had me smiling like a Cheshire Cat!
Well Done! Xxxxx

Great show, the performers clearly put a lot of thought into it so it is not just making lots of bubbles but has a story and uses puppetry too. My son loved it (he’s 3) and keeps talking about the white bubbles. Would recommend. I’ve seen the Bubbleman too before but think I preferred this for the variety.

Dr Bubble and Milkshake: the Winter Bubble took the unusual step of introducing puppetry into a bubble show -making for a unique experience for the young and old in the audience. Hans Christian Anderson's winter tale 'The Little Match Girl' was the subject of the story, during which bubble tricks were intertwined with some puppetry to bring the story alive.
