Inflate your BubbleBum easily by blowing into the air valve, just a few puffs
The clever side clips position the lap belt perfectly
The shoulder belt positioning clip ensures that the vehicle shoulder belt sits across the center of the chest
BubbleBum easily deflates for storage
The BubbleBum is made out of similar components to that of airbags, life rafts and life vests. It contains memory foam technology which is one of the reasons why we have passed our crash testing in the deflated state. The super tough, rigid side clips provide perfect belt fit and replace the arm rests that conventional seats use to position the lap belt. This keeps the design sleek and narrow, saving space in your back seat.
When inflated the seat measures 11 x11 x 4.5 Inches
When deflated the seat measures 11.8 x 5.9 x 3.9 Inches
Seat must be used inflated. The seat has met safety standards in the deflated state, but we know that kids do not perform like the crash test dummy as they slouch when they have no"boost".
The seat weighs 500g (That is the same as a packet of cookies!)
Best practice for your child is to remain in a booster seat until the age of eleven AND/OR until they reach a height of 57 inches. This is when their body proportions are starting to be more like that of a small adult and they can sit properly in the vehicle seat.
Never transition your child to a booster seat until at least the age of four AND weight of 40lbs.
We know that rigid seats give children ‘dead legs’ when travelling on any lengthy journey. BubbleBum is inflatable and super comfy, therefore, no more "dead legs!"
The "boost" created when the seat is inflated makes it easier for the child to sit with their back against the vehicle seat due to the introduction of a gradient on the legs. This prevents the child from **slouching forward to bend their legs over the vehicle seat.
**Children slouching forward, creating space between their back and the vehicle seat back, is very dangerous. In the event of a crash this loosens the vehicle seat belt and can cause serious lifelong abdominal injuries. This is why booster seats are raised up slightly. Crash test dummies do not behave the same way a child does as crash test dummies do not get fidgety or uncomfortable.
