Thanks to some quick thinking from staff at intu Milton Keynes, children waiting for the ‘frog clock’ bubbles to appear weren’t left disappointed.
While the ‘Time Machine’ (the real name for the ‘Frog Clock’) is currently under repair, customer service assistant Krysti Bridge took to the balcony to fire off a bubble gun every half an hour across the weekend.
She said: “On the hour and every half an hour I could see the children gathering to jump up at the bubbles that usually appear from the clock and I couldn’t stand by and see the disappointment on their faces.
“We have a secret stash of bubble guns in the office so I grabbed one of those and at the right time, let off a load of bubbles that floated down to the floor to the children.”
The superhero action was caught on camera by local blogger Milton Keynes Kids @MiltonKeynesKid and posted online, which has since attracted hundreds of supportive messages.
The clock is expected to be repaired soon.
