We all know how much work it is to pack up the car for a road trip when you have children. The clothes, the toys, the stuff you need to keep them occupied and happy; binkies and blankies, stuffed toys and Pillow Pets, not to mention all the suitcases. Where does it ever end?
There are a couple of new products that may just be your new essentials for travelling with the family: the BubbleBum and the SnoozeShade can keep your children safe, comfortable and happier during family vacations or even when traveling around town.
The multi-award winning BubbleBum (what a great name!) is an innovative, inflatable booster seat for kids aged 4-11. It checks in at less than 1 pound and inflates in minutes. When not in use, simply deflate the booster seat, roll it up and stow away in the trunk or backpack for the next use. BubbleBum is perfect for airplanes, rental cars, cabs or school trips. It’s the perfect travel companion, there’s no need to carry a bulky booster seat again with this lightweight, compact solution. BubbleBum ($39.99) is sold online. It is also available in select Target stores nationally. Choose black or purple.
SnoozeShade is a convenient sun & sleep shade that allows your little one to sleep away from home, whether in the car seat, stroller or playground, while still being protected from the sun and pesky bugs.
This award-winning sleep solution provides babies and young children with a dark restful environment when away from home or during brightly lit getaways to warm weather destinations. SnoozeShade sun and sleep shade for strollers, car seats and outdoor activities allows baby to get the rest she needs while blocking out harmful sun rays and inclement weather. Designed by a British mom, Cara Sayer, who was in search of a better solution than blanket-draping, SnoozeShade blocks out up to 98% of light and also shields baby from weather such as rain, wind and sun. It also has sunburn-preventing UPF40+ blocking nearly 98% of harmful UV rays.
SnoozeShade is lightweight, easy-to-use and has no complicated attachments and fits most popular brands. It’s ideal for vacations or for when sharing rooms away from home. Moms and dads can take their little ones everywhere and know they will be able to sleep under the SnoozeShade, which keeps them happy, healthy and well-rested.
