We were sent the Union Jack patterned BubbleBum Inflatable Car Seat to review!
What is the bubblebum inflatable car seat?
BubbleBum is an affordable, portable, lightweight, narrow, travel booster seat for children aged between 4-11 years.
It is easy to inflate and deflate, and folds flat so that kids, or adults, can carry it in a rucksack or handbag. It also fits into a glove compartment, making it perfect for holidays, family outings, or taking friends of your children home from dinner playdates or sleepovers.
Inflating couldn’t be easier, it took me only 10 seconds to inflate, but BubbleBum state it will take an average of 20 seconds (I must have a good puff).
We got sent the Union Jack design seat, which my son loves, being as much of a patriot as his mother. The colour is vibrant, the design is just beautiful, and the seat, according to my son, is very comfortable!
There is an added shoulder belt positioning clip for extra comfort, and the seat is able to be used in any seats (where there are no active air bags)*.
Weighing only 500g, (which is the equivalent of three small bananas), the BubbleBum is also made from a durable material, similar to that of life vests.
The integrity of the structure of the seat comprises of memory foam and a strong webbing harness.
The side positioning clips position the lap belt portion of the vehicle seat belt over the bony pelvis area away from the soft tissue of the abdomen, which is the optimum positioning for the safety of the child.
The Booster Seat can be stowed in its own stretchy bag for easy transportation, meaning that EVERY child can have a booster seat for EVERY Journey.
Additionally, another use, we’ve personally found, is that you can take it into restaurants with you, as a booster seat for the children who are too big for highchairs, but too small for the chairs the establishment provides!
This seat will really be perfect for several occasions we currently find difficulty in accessiblilty of the children we have in the car.
Both of my children go to their Grandparents for days out or nights at their house, and we often find ourselves having to transfer our heavy car seats for both of them into their Grandparents car, sometimes for them only to take them on a short journey, or not go out in the car at all!
The BubbleBum Booster Seat alleviates the need to move the massive seats, and instead, allows us to pack it with their clothes and toys, ready to be inflated when/if needed!
Our other need is for when the children have friends round, either for dinner play-dates or sleepovers. We always have to ask the parent of the child visiting, to bring a car seat to the school so we can take them home safely-we no longer need to, as we’ll always have the inflatable seat in the car.
