Random Stuff That Rocks: BubbleBum Booster Seat
We thought everyone needed to know about this portable, foldable, inflatable car booster seat. Yes, you heard it right: you blow it up before use. This seat isn’t inflatable in the same way as a beach ball would be. Instead, the BubbleBum seat is filled with memory foam, which provides structural integrity, and in the event of a crash, stabilizes the flow of air within the inflatable chamber. In fact, the BubbleBum has been crash-tested and approved even when it is not inflated. That means that if the seat gets punctured in the event of a crash, it will still protect the passenger the same way a regular booster seat would. This seat is only for children 4-11 years old. But it does run a little narrow, so we would still recommend using a regular booster seat for everyday use and long rides. We do think the BubbleBum is a very handy item to have in your car for those last-minute changes of plan. Like when your friend is late to carpool and asks you to pick up her child. It’s good to keep one around for when you have to get a cab or fly to your destination and need a booster seat upon arrival. It folds nicely and has a compact pouch to store it in. When ready to use it, just pull it out and inflate by mouth – it takes less than a minute.
