Bubble Machine - Update


bubble1QMC Children's Emergency Department

At the beginning of 2007, the TLC Nottinghamshire team were asked if they could provide something for the department that would be attractive, novel and help distract children whilst in the waiting area.

The answer – a giant bubble machine!


This was installed within a few weeks - to the delight of young patients, parents and staff alike. Due to the care of the play specialist staff in regularly servicing the machine, it is still going strong after almost four years.

The bubbles regularly change colour and the plastic fish spin around and up and down amongst the bubbles to give a coulourful and lively display.

In order to keep it steady when young children climb on the base, a safety bracket was paid for, by donations to the department, by grateful parents whose children had received TLC Teddies.
