Here are the Google translations for the non-English words on the bubble wand card, which suggest the penis bubble wand is aimed at the EU market:

  • seifenblasenschwert = German for “soap bubbles sword”
  • Bacchetta magica bolle = Italian for “magic bubble wand”
  • Baguette magique a bulle = French for “magic bubble wand”
