Has this happened to you? There have been so many times that my mom friends have asked around for a spare car seat for their visiting relative’s or friend’s child. Unfortunately, I don’t keep a spare (and my sedan isn’t big enough to carry more children than what I’ve got!).

So I wish I had come up with this brilliant idea: BubbleBum is an inflatable booster seat (for kids 40-100 pounds). An inflatable seat that you can later roll up and place in the handy storage pouch makes it so easy to travel in a relative’s car, taxi or carpool. Kids going home with a friend can put BubbleBum in their backpack!

BubbleBum was developed by a mom (no surprise there) in Northern Ireland and has already won several awards. And yes, it’s safe — it has been crash tested and approved.

Once I read the instructions (important!), I found the BubbleBum easy to set up. I did have trouble figuring out how to inflate it — all you need to do is blow — but when I reached my frustration threshold, my husband figured it out for me.

(Yes, I know how that sounds. Moving on….)

The BubbleBum’s seat straps onto the shoulder belt and also the lap belt to make it secure. (This part was easy for me.)

BubbleBum provided a seat for me to review. Opinions and silliness are my own.
