Bubble Bum Booster Seat is a great product, and one I have been truly impressed by! from the moment I saw the fun packaging and cleaver design. I thought it was a product worthy of Dragons Den, when I found out that it has already featured on the Irish version of the show, it was no surprise.
Bubble Bum has already won its fair share or awards, and in my opinion rightly so. This booster seat is going to be perfect for our holiday and removes some of the worry for parents traveling abroad with kids. Despite the boy being 9 now, he is still too short to be traveling in a car without some form of booster seat. The Bubble bum is perfect to give him the extra height to fit the seat belt properly, and despite the boys initial reluctance to want to try out the Bubble Bum he has found it a very comfy car seat.
Bubble Bum car seats are available directly from the website as well as Halford stores for RRP £29.99. With all the relevant safety testing, (United Nations ECE Regulation R44/04 for safety for both Groups 2 and 3) handy carry bag, and positioning clips. Bubble Bum is possible better than my current heavy plastic booster seat. The Bubble Bum has a simple twist valve, making it easy to inflate and deflate even for someone with little puff, and weighs just 0.5kg when deflated.
The boy said that he thought at first that the Bubble Bum might pop under his weight, I told him this is unlikely, and he should give it a try. He found it super comfy and the only thing he was not so happy about are the seat belt clips. I think the clips are great as you know the Bubble bum is not going to move whilst in use. Younger children might not be able to undo the clips, but the boy had only a little problem with them, and once used to them no problem at all.
The Bubble Bum booster seat comes in some great colours, neon, pink, and the cool black which we chose with a silver piping which is a great touch and matches my car seat. Bubble Bum is suitable for kids aged 4 – 11 weighing 15kg to 36kg, and is perfect not just for holidays but short trips, or even packing the boy off with his grandparents. The video on the Bubble Bum website shows how versatile the seat is especially useful if you have to pick up friends for an after school play date, or even just for a short trip in a taxi.
I have been so impressed with the Bubble Bum, that I have been showing it to some of the Mums, I have always been thoughtful of when the boy travels in cars as having had a small car accident before the boy was born I know how important seatbelts and car safety are. The Bubble Bum is already for its holiday to Florida in a months time, and I have popped it in the suitcase already, and I know even though the boy is at the top end of using a booster it will be a very useful seat, maybe even replacing the one in my car which is used for short journeys.
