With states like California passing stricter car seat regulations, children are safer in the car than ever. I'm sure parents are happy to keep their kids' car seats and booster seats for as long as they need them, but it sure doesn't make traveling any easier! Any parent who has taken their kids on a plane trip and had to deal with bulky booster seats on the plane, in airports and at their destination will know what I mean.
That's why the BubbleBum booster seat is such a great idea. It's an inflatable booster seat for kids 4-8 that rolls up to fit in a backpack, carry-on bag or purse. It's one of those D-uh! ideas that make you wonder why no one has ever thought of it before! But the BubbleBum is not just an inflatable cushion, it's a real car booster seat that has passed US and European crash test regulations. It has already won numerous awards, including the JPMA 2011 Innovation Award, Tots to Go Travel Award, and more.
Now the BubbleBum is up for the prestigious Cribsie Awards in the "One Thing You Should Never Travel Without" category! It certainly fits the bill, so they are asking readers and fans to show their support for their innovative product. You can help by casting your vote for the BubbleBum at the Cribsie website.
BubbleBum booster seat is the portable solution for on-the-go families making traveling simpler than ever! BubbleBum is the perfect booster seat for everyday car rides, carpooling and fly ins with car rentals. Weighing in at less than one pound, the booster seat can deflate in seconds making it simple to throw in a backpack, flight bag, trunk or large purse. BubbleBum includes belt positioning clips in place of arm rests so it’s possible to fit three boosters across the back seat of a car, minivan or SUV. With its satisfactory design for parents and children, BubbleBum is proud to join the exclusive winners circle selected by the PTPA (Parent Tested Parent Approved) Media Awards and JPMA Awards. BubbleBum was also announced the IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) “Best Bet” in their booster seat evaluation report, where they’ve branded BubbleBum as one of the best for safety!
