This bubble blower is the 14"-long Ideal Bubble Express, a pull-toy locomotive. The front wheels move the "Johnson bars" back and forth, which operates a bellows that blows air out of a tube in the smokestack. At the same time, the front axle operates the bubble wand, dips it in soap, and then moves it over the air tube in the smokestack to blow bubbles.
