…toil and trouble? Ok, so this quote is a little off, but bubbles are certainly not trouble, in fact, they are another simple toy that can create hours of fun.
Even young babies will enjoy seeing bubbles drift over them. Older ones will like trying to catch them, and as they become more mobile even chase them. We carry a bottle of bubble fluid in our diaper bag for impromptu bubble sessions when faced with a bored baby (or two). They are also the source of giggles in the bath.
You might be tempted, as you wearily pick up the bubble blower for the umpteenth time, to invest in a motorised bubble blower. By all means do so, but check how loud the motor is. Particularly in echo-y bathrooms, the noise can be quite scary for a baby or young toddler.
