Coolkidz Picks: BubbleBum Car Booster Seat

BubbleBum, the inflatable, portable and safe car booster seat is easy to use, light to carry and useful for many different situations, from car rentals to carpooling. That is why it is going with us on our holidays and special occasions.

My mantra is that one (aka me) should never complicate (too much) when traveling with kids but in some situations it’s just unavoidable. These can be so common; I honestly often don’t even think of them. Like the fact our kids require car seats. And we don’t always go places with our own car. It’s usually a hassle to find the best solution, because you either have to drag the seat along or pay additional money to rent it (or sometimes it happens they don’t even have it).


Even when we are staying put, there are times I’ve wished we had additional one. Not often but at times when my Mom wants to pick up the girls and we have to go through all the commotion of transferring the seats back and forth. Or when we want to give our daughter’s friends a ride and we don’t have a safe place for them… But since all of these problems don’t arise too often, it was never really worth buying a whole new seat. We also have limited space, so I don’t know where we would keep it, when we are not using it. Besides it still doesn’t solve the whole traveling abroad situation, when we would still be required to rent a seat.

So, imagine my great joy, when searching for something completely different, I stumbled upon BubbleBum, inflatable car booster seat. The more I read about it, the more I was sure this is exactly what we need and it’s affordable. But most of all it’s easy to use, small enough to put away and it has been approved for safety.


After using it I am also excited to recommend it to others who have kids aged 4 to 11. You just inflate it by blowing into a small valve (it took me longer to inflate all the plethora of beach things than it did to get this seat ready for use). And then you secure it to the seat. The booster comes with a removable seat belt positioning clip, which helps to make the seat belt stay in a comfier position for the kid.

When you don’t need it anymore, you just undo the valve, fold it flat and put the seat back in the bag. It easily deflates and folds flat so you can actually carry it along in your handbag  (it’s really light, basically with the stuff I am normally carrying around, I almost don’t even know it was there) so it is perfect for going away on holidays, renting cars, carpooling…
