Check out this recent review on Westside Mommies:
A Mom’s Guide to the Westside of Los Angeles
Parents of young children traveling by plane often have the dilemma of the pick-up. Either chance a taxi ride with no child booster for the car seat — as in most states this is allowable by law for short hauls in hired vehicles, or trouble a relative or friend to arrange for a booster for when they pick you up. You can now spare yourself the worry, thanks to the arrival of BubbleBum.
The BubbleBum inflatable car booster seat is an affordable ($39.99), convenient alternative to carting around a booster on a plane, and avoiding airline bag fees to check luggage. It tucks compactly into its own stretch carry bag, and can be blow up and ready to use in seconds. It is lightweight (1 lb.), yet when inflated it is sturdy and comfortable. Designed for children aged 4-11 and weighting 40 to 100 pounds, it is a handy extra seat for kiddie carpools, and because of its narrow footprint, it can fit three-across in a back seat along with other boosters.
The BubbleBum meets all US motor vehicle safety standards as required by NHTSA (FMVSS213), so you can feel confident in using it as a daily booster as well as a booster-in-a-pinch. As a testament to parent satisfaction the BubbleBum has been awarded a seal by Mom’s Best, including the 2012 Top Choice of the Year Award in Kids Travel by Creative Child Magazine, PTPA (Parent Tested Parent Approved) Media Awards and the JPMA Awards. BubbleBum has been awarded the IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) “Best Bet” in their booster seat evaluation report two years in a row, where they’ve branded BubbleBum as one of the best for safety.
We just came across a review of BubbleBum on Simply Southern Couponers:
BubbleBum Inflatable Car Booster Seat Review
Simply Southern Couponers was given the opportunity to review a product from BubbleBum. As a mom of three little boys under the age of 6 car seats and booster seats are a must when we travel. I drive a Toyota Camry and we all know fitting three bulky car seats in the back seat can be a hassle.
As you can see with one harness car seat and two toddler lap belt seats space in my back seat is very limited. We have to literally push the seats over when we try to buckle the two lap belt seats just to get the boys buckled in. Sometimes making Eli’s car seat a little wop sided. Upon taking the black BubbleBum out of the package and reading the instructions the boys were excited to see how this new seat was going to work. I unscrewed the cap just a little, blew air into it just like you were blowing up a beach ball. Didn’t take but a few times and we had a new inflatable seat. I asked both Andrew and Ty to try the seat out and see how they liked it.
As you can see in the picture they both sat comfortably in the seat and we had plenty of room to buckle up without having to move any seats. BubbleBum is perfect for sending to grandma’s house, a friends house for a sleep over, going on road trips, fly ins with car rental, or to keep in the other vehicle. There is even enough room to fit three across the back seat with everyone being comfortable. If you are looking for a portable, lightweight and compact booster seat I highly recommend the BubbleBum to any parent.

We just came across a really great blog site and they have reviewed BubbleBum:
We spend a lot of time in our vehicles. There are many errands to run and practices or lessons to attend. This means that our 5 year old spends a lot of time in his car booster seat. His big sister has recently graduated out of needing to sit in one. I thought that would cause a bit of jealousy and anxiousness on his part.
Luckily, we were given a BubbleBum Car Booster Seat around the time his sister stopped needing her car booster seat. This new and fascinating item has helped to distract him from the fact that he must still use a car seat.
The BubbleBum seat intrigued him because it is an inflatable car booster seat. Joey was amazed when I pulled the seat from its packaging and quickly filled it with air. Until we placed it in the car, he used it all over the house. It was at the dinner table with him as well as placed in various seats around the house while he sat reading a book or two.
Finally it was time to move on to the car! He was thrilled to remove his old car booster seat and replace it with a BubbleBum! It is a slimmer design that most booster seats, which means if you needed to place three of them side-by-side… they would fit with ease! No more shoving and pushing and stretching while trying to get three booster seats in place. It may be great exercise, but it’s tiring!
Joey said the BubbleBum is also more comfortable. His exact word was ‘soft’. If he is more comfortable during a car trip – mommy is happy!
I like that the BubbleBum is easy to store! Having several nieces and nephews that may travel around with me at a moment’s notice – I can keep a BubbleBum in the trunk of my car without sacrificing much space. It is quickly pulled out, inflated and installed.

With the spring and summer travel season approaching, BubbleBum should be among the items you take on your next road trip.
BubbleBum is the first ever inflatable booster seat that inflates/deflates in just a matter or minutes. You can take it on road trips or airplanes and it works great with rental cars, buses or taxi cabs. For storage and transporting, it easily tucks into a backpack or carry on when not being used.
