Inflatable car seat?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Has anyone heard of this seat? It seems crazy and not safe to me, maybe there's something I'm missing?

It's just a booster, not a 5pt harness.  There is also the bubble bum that's inflatable (and gets excellent reviews)

Is the one the OP linked actually NHSTA approved?

In the pictures, it does not have a NHTSA sticker and the website states: "Certified for use in vehicles in the European Union and approved by TUEV DEKRA".  I'm thinking it's not legal to use in the US.

 

The Bubble Bum is fine.

 

Also, my computer thinks the site is malware.

That particular seat failed NHTSA crash testing and is not approved for use in the US.  It is abominably unsafe.   It bears absolutely no relation to the BubbleBum, which is very safe and a great niche product.
