Fan Yang - the Bubble Man at the Discovery Science Center

Our local children's discovery center offered a show all about bubbles (yes, the kind you play in the back yard) staring Fan Yang. Who is Fan Yang you ask (it was the same questions I asked as m wife drove me and my three year old down to the show)? Apparently he holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest bubble, the most bubbles within a bubble -9 total - and 7 other records. And you thought back yard bubbles were just a way to kill time with the little one...

He is on tour in "The Science of Bubbles", a show that doesn't talk about the science of bubbles at all, but instead offers an amazing display of the bubbles but set to music and bigger bubble makers than you can purchase at Target. Half fun and entertaining and half corny/something out of "Saturday Night Live," the show is a hit with young kids who loved jumping up and down to pop the bubbles. It was only about $7 per ticket and the show lasts about 45 minutes. If you child loves bubbles like mine does, it might be worth checking out. Just watch out for deluge of bubbles at the end!
