To carseat or not to carseat? This dilemma arises without fail every time our family is about to travel. There is always plenty to organise as it is and family trips or days out can get stressful. Well, let us debate no more – introducing Bubblebum!
Description and features:
BubbleBum is the world’s first inflatable and deflatable, portable and packable car booster seat for kids aged 4-11 and weighing 15-36 kgs. It’s perfect for everyday use, carpooling, holidays, rental cars and taxis.
- Its narrow design also makes getting three car seats across the backseat easy
- Just as safe as any rigid car seat, BubbleBum has been approved under the United Nations ECE Regulation R44/04 for safety for both Groups 2 and 3 and is designed for use with a standard 3 point adult seat belt. It weighs approximately 0.5 kilograms and comes with a convenient carrying bag and shoulder belt positioning clip
- This clever booster seat inflates in seconds with a few puffs of air and deflates/packs down just as quickly. When deflated, it is lightweight and small enough to fit in hand luggage, a child’s rucksack or in mum’s handbag
We received this product to review just before Easter and couldn’t wait to try put it to the test while out and about during the school holidays. You know what? We loved it!
The seat came handy for taxi trips to Central London, beach and zoo days out with family when we had to squeeze in three little people at the back, and even for a couple of restaurant outings as a booster!
Portable & lightweight : ✓
Taking less than 20 seconds to inflate by mouth: ✓ [maybe a minute if you are also holding a wriggly toddler!]
Folds flat & packs away into its very own stretchy bag: ✓
The best praise, though, comes from the kids themselves. Our six year old and her cousin both found it to be very comfortable and much cushier than their normal seats – great for those bumpy country lanes!
Thumbs up! Bubblebum is a perfect solution to any family’s travel needs. Chuck it in your handbag, suitcase or the boot of your car, and carry it with you everywhere. We do!
BubbleBum comes in 3 colours (black, neon pink and neon yellow), retails at £29.99 and is available at: Halfords, John Lewis, Tesco, Boots, Argos, Heatons, Kiddicare and Amazon.co.uk.
