Little Magnets Versus the Bubble of Babble was the third album by UK pop rock band Transvision Vamp. The album was released in 1991, two years after their UK No. 1 album Velveteen.

This album did not follow in the successful footsteps of the two previous albums and sold poorly. Little Magnets Versus the Bubble of Babble took on a more mellow sound which was the reason that their record company at one stage refused to release it – it was eventually released in the US but never in the UK. It was however, released in Australia where the band had enjoyed considerable success. The album peaked at No. 25 on the Australian Albums Chart. Little Magnets Versus the Bubble of Babble produced a few singles but before a UK release could be re-considered, Transvision Vamp broke up.

This was the first (and only) Transvision Vamp album to feature co-writing credits for Wendy James.
