BubbleBum: The Blow-Up Booster

Image placeholder title

While I value the safety they provide, car seats are one of the things I'm definitely looking forward to getting rid of as the kids get older. From switching them between cars to trying to figure out playdate and carpooling, car seats can make things a bit tricky. But then I recently had the chance to test out BubbleBum, a portable, foldable, lightweight, inflatable booster seat for kids ages 4-11 (between 40-80 lbs.) that I found to be pure genius. Here's why you'll love it, too.

Portable. BubbleBum packs down into a tiny stuff-sack. Whether you need to fit it in your suitcase when you fly to grandma's house or need to slip it in your child's backpack for when the neighbor picks him up from school, the BubbleBum packs down small.

Quick and easy installation. BubbleBum takes about 30 seconds to inflate with a few puffs of air. Thread the seat belt through the two-belt positioners and click into place. Done! (The BubbleBum also comes with a shoulder belt positioning clip if needed for correct positioning.)

Safe. BubbleBum meets ALL U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (in addition to being approved by European standards too). Check out their website for lots of safety details.
