Moms want kids to be safe while traveling. Until children are around 57" tall the seat belts don't really fit right so it's recommended - and even the law in many states. Booster seats can be cumbersome and bulky especially when traveling or on the go with multiple children. BubbleBum is the first company to lighten the load with an inflatable booster seat.

Winner of a National Parenting Publications Award, Bubblebum brings a new trend to life. Inflatable car seats are highly attractive due to safety, portability and convenience. This trend has become so popular that even a high ranking automobile company like Volvo has created an inflatable car seat. Who wouldn't want a booster seat that can fit in a backpack or purse for easy portability.

BubbleBum inflatable booster seat is rated for children 4-11 years old weighing 40-100 pounds. The seat has been crash tested in both the US and Europe and has been rated "best bet" in booster seats by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. The seat weights 1 pound and inflates manually (yes that means your lung power) in about a minute. The seat also then deflates in a matter of minutes simply by rolling it up. Belt positioned located on each side help keep the seat secure and place the belt properly on the child's lap. The biggest downside would be using this seat in a hurry as you have to inflate and the take the time to slide the seat belts into the loops everytime.

Retailing for around $30 BubbleBum can be found online and at Wal-Mart Stores. The BubbleBum website also helps parents locate the closest retailer. The seat comes in a variety of exciting colors including their new NEONs line, which currently features hot pink and hot yellow. Whether traveling across country or heading to a sleep over though BubbleBum makes traveling with little ones less cumbersome. The lightweight seat is easily stored while traveling between vehicles such as a rental while flying.
