BubbleBum Inflatable Car Booster Seat ~ Review & Giveaway

Posted by Jenna | Friday, March 22, 2013



As my husband leaves town for work, he drops Kaelyn off at school each day. It's worked out very well for us, other than the car seat situation. Since he takes her in his work vehicle, he doesn't like that he's been having to haul around the car seat that he takes her in all day while he's working and meeting with his customers. We've been looking for a better alternative for quite some time. We needed something that was smaller and could slip under the seat when he's working, yet still accessible when he needs it each day. That's why I was very eager to learn more when I came across the BubbleBum Car Booster Seat.

BubbleBum was founded by Grainne Kelly (Safekids USA Certified CPST) when she saw the lack of car booster seats available from car rental desks. She believed every child deserves to be protected and set out to solve the problem. With the help of her children and children of local schools, BubbleBum's funky color and design was born.
About:
BubbleBum, the cost effective, portable, lightweight, brightly colored, inflatable car booster seat for children aged between 4-11, easily deflates and folds flat so that kids or moms can carry it in a backpack or purse, making it perfect for vacations, rental cars, taxis, school pick up or car pooling.

Features/Benefits:
  • portable & lightweight
  • inflatable & re-useable
  • inflates by mouth – taking less than 20 seconds to inflate
  • folds flat
  • packs away into its very own stretchy bag
  • comfortable & colorful
  • affordable
  • added belt positioning clip for extra comfort
  • suitable for all vehicles fitted with a three point seat belt
I will admit, the first time I read about the BubbleBum Car Booster Seat, I couldn't help but wonder just how safe an inflatable booster car seat would be. However, as I learned more about it, I found that it meets all US federal motor vehicle safety standards as required by NHTSA 4-11 years (40-100lbs) and is indeed, a very safe car booster seat.

After reading more about it, I was excited to learn we were going to be sent one to review. When the BubbleBum booster seat arrived, I was impressed with just how compact it really is.
 
Out of the packaging I found that it includes one BubbleBum Car Booster Seat, instructions, shoulder belt positioning clip, and carry bag.
  

I looked over the instructions, and learned that that the booster seat is very easy to inflate and use! In no time I had unscrewed the cap, blew up the car booster seat and screwed on the cap tight again. I was amazed just how quick and easy it really was!
 
I could tell that the quality of this car booster seat is top-notch, not to mention comfortable (Kaelyn sat on it right away to test it out ;)). The durable material is similar to that of a life vest. The air chamber cushion memory foam also adds stability and comfort.
 
Once it was inflated, it was time to attach the extra strap that comes with it which helps to keep the seat belt in the right place, up by the child's shoulder. I absolutely love this feature!

Since booster seats must only be used with a 3 point seat belt, the BubbleBum is a Belt Positioning Booster seat so that the belt stays where it needs to be for safety. The shoulder belt positioning clip and strap help to ensure that Kaelyn is safe and secure when using the BubbleBum Car Booster Seat which I greatly appreciate.
 
Getting Kaelyn situated in the car seat has been very simple as well. Once she's seated, we simply thread the seat belt straps through the red clips (for both the lap belt and shoulder belt).
She has mentioned just how comfortable this booster seat is, and how "big" she feels riding in a big girl car seat!

I have been very happy with the BubbleBum Booster Seat and know we will get a lot of use out of it. It's perfect for vacations/rental cars, taxis, and even in situations when we have all three kids in one seat - using the BubbleBum Car Booster Seat helps them to all sit and fit more comfortable.

If you're looking for an affordable, light-weight, compact, belt positioning car booster seat...I would definitely recommend checking out BubbleBum. It's incredibly convenient, and even something that would fit in a child's back pack or under the seat of a car if needed. Having a handy carry bag helps to keep it safe when not in use. It deflates easy and at just 1 lb makes it easy to carry wherever it is needed. We absolutely love it!


Buy It: You can purchase the BubbleBum Inflatable Car Booster Seat for $39.99.
