The BubbleBum Booster seat is the first inflatable booster seat that makes traveling so much easier. As I mentioned previously I am going to take a vacation with the kids to Maui and while there a booster is required by law for my four year old and so having something that can fold easily and weighing less than a pound is ideal for travel.
The makers of BubbleBum – the first inflatable booster seat has made traveling easier than ever – just made things easier with making their innovative product available for purchase at national retailers includingTarget.com and BabiesRUs.com.
Why I like it?
BubbleBum is the perfect solution for car rides and fly ins with car rentals. It is also an ideal solution for when you are riding in a taxi or on a train. I have found that the BubbleBum was very easy to inflate and deflate fitting into a suitcase. It would also fit into a handcarry bag, however I would probably be utilizing the hand carry for electronics, books, flashcards and games rather than take up space with this seat.
You cannot use this in an airplane seat. I just wanted to add this if you plan on traveling via airplane. The Bubblebum cannot be used on an airplane because airplanes don’t have a shoulder belt. This seat is suitable ONLY for use with a 3-point adult seatbelt approved to ECE Regulation 16 or equivalent standard. FMVSS213 approved.
Single Moms and Moms on a budget
With gas prices going up you may not be able to spring for the SUV or the minivan. I drive a Kia Optima and I have three children 5 and under. All of my children have to sit in either a car seat or a booster and yet all three can’t fit in the back. With the BubbleBum, my 4 year old weighing over 40 pounds can fit in the middle between my two babies in the backseat comfortably. I’m not risking the bank trying to buy a bigger vehicle since I really can’t afford to get a loan to buy another car. My car is paid off so rather than purchasing a bigger vehicle that may be a gas guzzler, I can still drive my sedan and keep the kids safe in the backseat.
I also liked how easy it was to take the BubbleBum to a family member or friend’s house if they plan on babysitting my daughter. All I had to do was quickly show them how it works and they have their own portable seat to use for the grandkids without having to store a large car seat in their own garage or home. The BubbleBum makes a great gift for grandparents that sometimes babysit and take the kids around.
What do the kids say?
Testimonials from their website was priceless.
The feedback from a child that now uses our product was priceless! The children helped with the “cheeky” name and the funky color and design, giving reasons about what they like about BubbleBum as opposed to existing rigid boosters:-
They found it easier to carry as it is lightweight and compact.
They were not embarrassed to bring it to school in their backpack, it was cool!
It was more comfortable than the conventional rigid options already on the market
They liked the fact that it was for “big kids” Read More
My 4 year old really liked the color and that it was easy to climb on and easy for her to carry around. I highly recommend this product if you are a mom on the go. Leave it in your truck in case of potty accidents or for just in case.
