As part of the never ending struggle to pay bills and put food on the table, both my partner and I decided to delve into the world of e-commerce.
In 2015, while travelling in the UK, I discovered the awesome world of Giant bubbles. I bought a kit for my daughter to try out while we were in the UK as well as a spare bottle to bring home with us.
Well the solution was used up very quickly and I was left with a not so cheerful daughter who had run out of bubbles. So naturally I thought of recreating the giant bubble solution here, using South African ingredients, how hard could it be? 6 months down the line and multiple failed attempts later, I had my first working bubble solution.
My daughter was over the moon as she had an endless supply of giant bubbles to play with. It was at that point that I thought, that if my child went crazy over this product, then perhaps other children might as well….
And Mega Bubbles was born. I decided to test the waters and sell my wares at Shongweni Farmers Market. I sold out on the first day and have been doing exceptionally well ever since. The rest we can say is history.
