Here is a product that I agreed to review they sent a sample and we went out and purchased two of our own to use as well. It’s called the Bubble Bum.
The Bubble Bum Car Booster Seat comes in two different color options black-silver and purple-silver. We have both colors and traveled from Seattle to Orlando with them. We used them in the shuttle from our house to the airport. Deflated them put them in our suit cases. Re-inflated them and used them in our rental car the entire time we were in Orlando and used them again on the way home. Piece of cake. And the only reason why he looks grumpy in his Bubblebum is because he walked five miles in the hot sun.
- For children ages 4 – 11, 40 to 100 lbs
- Inflatable, Foldable and Portable – great for travel, car rentals, taxis, tight "3 across" fits, carpools and caregivers
- Easily fit three car seats across the back seat with BubbleBum because it’s 13" wide.
- Rated a "Best Bet" Booster by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Winner of many awards including The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval
- When deflated, it easily fits in a handbag or backpack
The award-winning BubbleBum is the world’s first inflatable, foldable and portable car booster seat. It’s perfect for everyday, carpools, playdates, taxis and vacations. It’s narrow design (13" across) makes getting three car seats across the backseat easy. BubbleBum meets and exceeds all US Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS213) and is designed for children ages 4 to 11, weighing from 40 to 100 pounds. It’s the winner of the 2011 JPMA Innovation Award, the 2011 Parent Tested Parent Approved Award and ranked a 2011 & 2012 "Best Bet" Booster Seat by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It weighs just over a pound and comes with a convenient carrying bag and shoulder belt positioning clip. It inflates in seconds with a couple of puffs of air and deflates/packs down just as quickly. When deflated,it’s small enough to fit in a child’s backpack or mom’s purse. BubbleBum’s cool and funky design appeals to kids, parents love the convenience and ease of use.
Fits well into the seat, is easy to buckle in. The only frustration is that the kids can’t buckle themselves in safely because they have to get the belt into the red loop on the side. So we had to help them buckle themselves into the car every time, however, it was so much simpler in and out of the airport. We could keep them ourselves so they weren’t lost or damaged. Overall, we’re pleased with them and happy with our sample and purchase of two more.
