Post war, bubble pipes were sold with their own premixed bubble solution In the 50s and 60s, mechanised and battery operated bubble blowers were also available, often featuring a tin based pipe.
Of course, bubble blowing is still popular -and there's a big variety of 'bubble facilitators' on the market. It's a pastime humans never seemed to have tired of...I'd guess all of us have blown a few bubbles at some time or other.

If you have a baby, try lying him or her on the floor and blowing some bubbles above the babies head (being careful not to let any land suds fall on their eyes) - the magical rainbow colours will fascinate and amuse them, as they reach out to try and grab the elusive bubbles. It can also have a calming affect on an irritable infant.
