BubbleBum v2I was very excited to be able to try the BubbleBum inflatable booster seat. Frida (four years old) loved the purple colour and the fact that it could be blown up like a balloon. We travel quite often, use taxis and I also occasionally have three children in my car and have no way of storing that many car seats in the boot

Within a week of getting the BubbleBum car seat we had a chance to use it. Needing to pick up my father-in-law, my husband took the train with my daughter to Paddington Station. The car seat (already blown up) was light and small enough to carry in a shoulder bag. It was then used for the taxi ride home.

I can already see how useful it will be when we travel abroad and are able to take this with us in our luggage. I have had to rely far too often on hire car companies either renting me a seat that is not the right size; is dirty, or not having one when we pick up the car.  It will also save us the usual ten Euros a day that car hire companies charge. Our booster seat is just not practical to carry around with us.    

I am really pleased to have BubbleBum as a back up when I need to give my daughter's friends a lift in our car. This will give me great peace of mind knowing they are safe.

As a mother aware of safety, I was happy to read that the BubbleBum has been approved under United Nations ECE R44/04 for safety for both Groups 2 and 3 car seats.

An ingenious product.
