The Bubble Bum is a portable, inflatable, foldable backless booster seat!
Who is it for?
The limits for the Bubble Bum Booster Seat are 40-100lbs, and 40-57 inches tall.
The manufacturer recommends it for the approximate ages of 4-11 years old. As always, the child should be mature enough to use a booster properly
before being allowed to use the Bubble Bum.
Where can I find it?
The Bubble Bum is available in stores at select Target locations, and can be found online at www.bubblebum.co/us
Is it safe?
Yes! The Bubble Bum passes all federal safety standards as required by
the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. (FMVSS213)
What if it pops?
The Bubble Bum is made of a durable and thick material that should not puncture
or pop. (Think of a heavy duty life raft, rather than inflatable arm floaties...)
Still imagining some type of perfect-storm-worse-case-scenario accident where the seat pops? Rest assured, the Bubble Bum also passes testing in it's deflated state.
What's it like to use?
Here's the fun part! Join us as we test out the Bubble Bum!
The Bubble Bum package is complete with one Bubble Bum Booster Seat, a stretchy
carrying bag, instruction manual, shoulder belt positioning clip,
and a FREE mobile games app!
We tried out the black and silver model of
the Bubble Bum, but it's also available
in purple with lime green trim!
The seat has two red metal belt guides on the sides of the seat. These are for the lap portion of the seat belt, to keep it low on the child's hips and away from their soft tummy area. There is one air valve on the back of the seat for inflation. The removable shoulder belt positioner will need to be used if the vehicle's shoulder belt does not lay properly on the center of the child's shoulder. Finally, there are elastic straps on the bottom of the booster, to store your manual for easy access. The booster folds up and can be carried in the stretchy carry bag.
Using the Bubble Bum
Step One- Inflate the booster. Open the air valve by twisting to the left. Blow into the
valve until the seat feels full and you
can't inflate any further by mouth.
*ONLY use your mouth to inflate; NEVER use a compressor, pump, or other mechanism.*
Quickly twist the valve to the right to close.
Step Two- Place the booster on the vehicle seat, and position
the child on the
Check for proper seat belt placement- the lap belt should
be low on the child's hips, touching the thighs. It should
not be on the soft tummy area.
Step Four- If the seat belt is not centered on the child's shoulder, the additional shoulder
belt guide is needed.
Attach the strap to the bottom of the Bubble Bum, by looping it through the strap farthest to the back of the seat and pulling it tight.
Bring the clip up the child's back and thread the shoulder belt into the guide. Tighten the strap to ensure proper placement.
*The Bubble Bum is only 13 inches wide, which makes it a great option for fitting into small spaces.
*Being able to deflate and fold the seat into a bag makes it easy to send with your child. (Great for after school carpooling, visits with grandparents, sleepovers with friends, etc.) It's easy enough to inflate that the child can do it himself!
*Provides proper belt fit on a wide range of children.
*Durable- easy to wipe clean, and will stand up to the "wear and tear" of use.
*Budget friendly- at only $39.99, the Bubble Bum cushions more than your child's bum, it cushions your wallet, too!
*A younger child will probably still need help unbuckling themselves- the red lap belt guides are not easy for little hands to maneuver.
*Shorter lifespan-- the Bubble Bum expires 4 years after the date of purchase. That's still a good amount of time to last for one child, but it won't last long for passing down to younger siblings as they grow.
What do the kids think?!
*All kids tested out the Bubble Bum in the 2nd row driver side seat of a 2003 Chevy Trail Blazer*

"I think it's cool. I like that it doesn't have a back, but has a clip for the shoulder belt. It's comfortable!"

"It's not hard like my other booster. It's fun to sit on! I need Mommy's help to unbuckle. I can't get the seat belt out of the red piece by myself. I could get it in, though."

"It's neat! It's soft and fun to sit on. I think the seat belt fits me like it's supposed to, to be safe.
I couldn't undo the seat belt by myself, though, I needed help getting it out of the clip. I wish I had a purple one!"

"It doesn't look like a normal booster seat; it was cool to see it folded in a bag! It's soft, and nice to sit on. I'd like to use it a lot. I can buckle and unbuckle myself in it, and I didn't need help with the red guides."
