THE FACTS

  • The UK law states, children under the age of 12 and under the height of 135cm MUST use the correct child restraint - a booster seat or car seat.

  • Children between the ages on 4-8 seated in the rear seat in a vehicle are 59% safer when using a booster seat as opposed to seat belt alone.

  • A report published in the American Academy of Pediatrics Journal, states that among children who were restrained in booster seats, they were not able to detect a difference in risk for injury between children in backless versus high-back boosters. (October 2009)

  • Head injuries and abdominal injuries are the two most common injuries to children aged 4-8. There is a notable absence of abdominal injury to children in booster seats.

  • Booster seats reduce preventable injuries and fatalities to children in cars.

  • 2011 is the launch of the decade of Global Road Safety.

HOW BOOSTER SEATS WORK

A booster seat works in conjunction with the 3 point car seat belt in your vehicle.

It is specifically designed to position the 3 point seatbelt correctly on the child, and offers protection by:

1. Keeping the child in the vehicle.

2. Contacting the strongest parts of the body, protecting the abdominal organs.

3. Spreading the crash forces over a wide area of the body.

"Seat-belt syndrome" injuries are very common in children aged between 4-8 who are using a seatbelt alone. These injuries are noticeably absent when children are using booster seats.

BARRIERS TO BOOSTER SEAT USE, AND WHY A BUBBLEBUM HELPS

The main barriers to booster seat use, even in high income countries, are:

Cost:

Rigid high backed boosters are expensive to buy and car rental firms charge exorbitant daily rates for rental of car seats.

At just �29.99 BubbleBum pays for itself within a week compared to hiring a booster seat from a car hire firm while on holiday.
Inconvenience:
Rigid and high backed boosters are not easily carried or stored.

A BubbleBum is inflatable,

so can easily be deflated and carried to school or on holiday.

Resistance of the child:
Rigid high backed boosters look like a baby seat.

The cool Funky image appeals to kids making BubbleBum an attractive way to keep kids safe on EVERY journey.


Lack of knowledge:
Parents are not aware of how the simple step of using a booster can dramatically improve the safety of their child.
BubbleBum's ultimate goal is to help reduce the preventable injuries and fatalities to children as a result of road collisions.

 we are engaged in talks with Safekids Worldwide in the hope that we can bring the Safekids Child Passenger Safety Certification program to the UK and Ireland.




How is this inflatable booster seat safe?

    Br seat is short for 'Belt Position Booster'. Without the correct positioning of the lap belt, the risk of serious abdominal injury and spinal injury more than doubles.

  • Firstly, the BubbleBum is more than just an air chamber. The combination of the durable materials used, the memory foam inner and the webbing form the structural integrity of the product.

  • Secondly, the lap belt guides of the BubbleBum hold the lap portion of the car seat belt flat along the top of the thighs even when deflated. When in use the inflation valve is positioned out of reach of curious little hands.



The BubbleBum actually meets the regulatory requirements in the DEFLATED state.


Remember, there are many lifesaving devices that are inflatable, - just think of life rafts, life jackets, air bags etc..

 
ANTICIPATED CHANGES TO EUROPEAN CAR SEAT REGULATIONS


All European Standards are reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that they incorporate all of the latest knowledge, and provide the best possible safety checks for products that are on the market.


The Car Seat regulations are no exception to this, though the specific parts of the legislation relating to Booster Seats is not expected to change in the near future.


To quote the BPA (Baby Products Association) on the European Commission decision on changes to the R44 regulations:


"A Regulation is being worked on at the moment to replace ECE/R44 which is brand new. The work is adopting a staged approach looking at ISOFIX products only in the first stage. Side impact protection will be looked at in the third stage and this is tabled for work in 2018."


This means that there will be no change to the law relating to backless booster seats until 2018 at the earliest. In fact in a recent report from the American Academy of Pediatrics using a sample group of 7151 children in 6591 crashes, they were not able to detect a difference in the risk for injury between the children in backless versus high-back boosters.


You can therefore rest assured that the BubbleBum, and all the other Booster Seats that meet the requirements of the United Nations ECE Regulation R44/04 for safety for both Groups 2 and 3 are safe to use, both now and in the foreseeable future.

If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
