What We Thought-

Jack just went into a booster seat and honestly I couldn’t be happier. I know that he is still protected, we are obeying all laws here in Virginia and I just feel so content with him being in a booster seat. We recently were offered the chance to review the BubbleBum and at first I am going to fully admit to being a skeptic. We do so much research on car seats and the benefits of them constantly. Laws change and so do seat regulations and we like to stay on top of this stuff.

Knowing that Jack is in a seat that is already portable the skeptic in me wondered how this would be, I mean come on we would be folding up his booster seat! Who would have ever thought of such a thing?! My first thought went straight to safety, so I went to the BubbleBum website to figure out how this could even be a possibility. The first thing I noticed is that these seats are made from the same material as life vests which made me more of a believer, but I wanted to wait to see it in person before I made up my mind.

The BubbleBum arrived and immediately I liked that it was in its own little carrying bag. I thought this would be absolutely perfect for Grandparents since they are more comfortable traveling with a booster seat over a typical car seat. This packed up SO small. I mean literally it was rolled right up in this little sack.

I took it out of the bag and my husband immediately wanted to inflate it to see how easy it was. We were thrilled with the ease of both inflating and deflating this seat.

Jack says it is super comfortable, we are able to share our love of the USA and I feel confident that he is safe no matter where our travels take us!!


When a 4 year old and both parents can approve of something with no argument, I call this product a win!
