happy-kids2 Earlier this year, when I traveled to Phoenix, Arizona with my family, we had to rent a car.  Since both of my children are now of booster seat size, I decided to bring along two BubbleBum inflatable booster seats, which were the perfect way to keep our kids safe without traveling with loads of gear.

The BubbleBum Inflatable Booster seat is meant for kids over the age of three (preferably four) who are from forty to eighty pounds, and who can stay off their knees for the entire car ride. It’s also so easy to use – just inflate by blowing into the valve (takes about half a minute), then install it in your car with the car’s lap belt. I was able to just put them in our carry-on bags, and inflate them when we arrived at the rental car.

While I don’t always need the BubbleBum Inflatable Booster for travel, it’s also great to keep on hand for a spare booster.  We’ve already used it a few times as a spare when I’ve transported another children, or to send along with my daughter on playdates.

Disclosure: I received a BubbleBum Inflatable Booster Seat for review, and purchased the second on my own.
