When you become a parent you are suddenly thrown into a world that really you have no clue about until you arrive and then you quickly learn fast. One thing that I thought before I became a parent was how easy buying a car seat would be.
Then I became a parent and realised that not only are there A LOT of car seats on the market, there is also a lot of other factors to consider.
Since becoming a parent of two and having two car seats in the back, it’s meant that anytime we travel with other people we have to go in separate cars. With Alice now at school we often have playdates and that means taking another child home with us and needing a third car seat.
My car has a full seat in the middle with a full seat belt, but I haven’t been able to find a car seat that fits in-between my girls seats. That was until we were kindly sent the Bubblebum Booster Seat.
What is Bubblebum? It is the worlds first lightweight, portable, inflatable car booster seat. It’s suitable for children aged between 4-11 years old. It is designed to go with you wherever you go and it is really light to carry, weighing just 500g. You can easily pop it in your bag or keep it in your glove compartment.
Is it safe? It has been approved under the United Nations ECE Regulation R44/04 for safety in both groups 2 and 3.
The Bubblebum can meet so many of our everyday needs, when you have an extra child to pick up from school, the grandparents need to transport their grandchild or you go abroad and hire a rental car. It will meet all these needs.
Being able to fit 3 children side by side in the back of my car has been brilliant. It means that I can comfortably and safely bring children home. When we have day trips with my niece, she can come with us in the car and the girls love it.
One of the best parts is that it works by inflating it. It is made from durable material and consists of memory foam and it has a strong webbing harness with side positioning clips to support the seat belt in the optimum position for safety.
I wasn’t too sure about it when it first arrived, I couldn’t see how it was going to work and also be a safe car seat for my children. But after a quick few blows of air, it was fully inflated and I could see how robust it was.
It was really easy to fit, with the seat belt going through the red clips either side of the booster seat, making it secure and then cliping the top clip onto the seat belt above their shoulder to make it more comfortable and added safety.
Whilst I wouldn’t use the Bubblebum as an every day car seat, it is great for those short trips or when we go abroad.
Plus the children love them too, with lovely bright colours and designs to choose from, there is a Bubblebum for everyone. With a RRP of £29.99, this is a great price to know you always have a booster seat for your child, whatever the circumstances. They are available to buy at Halfords.
