|The squeals are deafening!Not because the world’s biggest bubble toy is noisy, but because the kids (and their parents) are going nuts!Chasing and popping bubbles is only half the fun with the 14 foot tall, solar powered Bubble Tower Sculpture. The other half is watching the kids (and their parents) swoop and run and dance after the soaring bubbles. Or collecting masses of bubbles on their heads!The solar powered (with battery back up) Bubble Tower is very quiet, but people respond with noisy abandon to the floating gobs of bubbles spewing from the top of the 14 foot tall pyramid.|
At night, lights give the bubbles an enchanting glow and twinkle, and an older crowd comes out to play. Middle schoolers, and yes even teens and young adults can be seen gathered by the Bubble Tower, enchanted by the swirl and magic of the bubbles. Soon 1000′s of bubbles, with clusters the size of bushel baskets fill the air.
Not only is the Bubble Tower fun, eco-friendly, and unique, it instantly creates a warm, festive atmosphere that people respond to. Since the Bubble Tower draws so much concentrated attention at events, it serves as a wonderful and creative way to advertise your business or non profit organization.
Perfect for your next promotion, the Bubble Tower makes you the hero at festivals, county fairs, music concerts, Earth Day and solstice celebrations, art shows, school, church, sport, team building, picnic, kite festival or other event.
No waiting in lines, no ticket entry, but unlimited hours of fun. The Bubble Tower allows your company to be featured at the event, and is visible from across the festival grounds.
First presented by Bill “Stretch – the nine foot clown” Coleman at the 2004 Colorado Bubble Festival in Manitou Springs, the original rainbow themed Bubble Tower has been joined by designs including a festive tie dye, pink sequins featured at the 2004 Susan B Komen Race for the Cure, a patriotic theme red, white and blue Bubble Tower and an original cow print.
The COW Bubble Tower is made from a reclaimed, repurposed, out dated billboard vinyl. The COFFEE Bubble Tower features dozens of colorful burlap coffee bean bags from around the world and discarded polyester table cloths from the rental linen industry. Using the discarded table cloths cut our purchase of new material by two thirds. I really like the fade resistant bright colors AND we get to keep some polyesters from languishing in a landfill !
Custom design commissions and suggestions are welcomed.

Hi Bill!!! The event was a smashing success! We exceeded all expectations and the Bubble Tower played a major role in our success! The kids thoroughly enjoyed the bubbles and the parents loved the “automatic babysitter” atmosphere that it provided. We had plenty of comments about how cool the tower was and how great it was for our specific event.

“The Washington County Fair had the bubble tower and stilt walking party in 2010. It was a hit! Bubbles flying all over the fair grounds, little children trying to chase them, different age groups trying the stilts….first on buckets and then on the real wooden stilts…even teenagers!
This wonderful venue helped excite the atmosphere at the fair even more! I am going to have them back! Wendy Sandberg, Fair Director” Washington County Fair, St George, UT
I have utilized the solar powered bubble tower for several parties. It is always a hit: a never-fail, never-gets-old, source of wonder and fun for children, teen-agers, and adults. Guaranteed smiles at your next event! David Dye
