Mine is a non-driving family, and my hubby and I do not hold a license between us. Perhaps one day we’ll learn, but it suits us for now (well most of the time anyway). We have car seats for the children for lifts and taxi journeys, and as the two little ones have grown bigger it was on my to-do list to buy a new seat. I had heard about the BubbleBum Inflatable Car Booster Seat through the fab blog Writing Life As It Is, and was thrilled when BubbleBum got in touch asking if I’d like to review it.
“BubbleBum, the cost-effective, portable, lightweight, brightly coloured, inflatable car booster seat for children aged between 4-11 easily deflates and folds flat so that kids or mum and dad can carry it in rucksacks or handbags, making it perfect for holidays, rental cars, taxis, coach journeys, school trips or car pooling.”
It really is a genius idea, because the seat deflates down to nothing, and is able to fit into a teeny bag. Yet at the same time it only takes a few puffs to blow it up (unlike my padding pool, but that’s another story). Great news for non drivers like us, but also super handy for the drivers. I’m sure it would be fab to have an additional car seat that could live in the car and not take up any room when it’s not being used.
My daughter is quite small for her age, and this seat comes with an extra strap that attaches to the car seat belt, giving her an extra level of comfort. This was a big plus point for us, because when she sat in our other booster cushion the seat belt rubbed under her chin. This seat got the resounding thumbs up from Little Miss. P, and once her three year old sister turns four we shall be buying another one!
Don’t just take my word for it though, check out how many awards these guys have won over the last few years.
