Great travel car seat,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Easycarseat - Inflatable Car Seat (Baby Product)
This is a really useful inflatable car seat. We originally bought it to take in our luggage on an aeroplane to Bangladesh, where there are no car seats available. It was obviously not as good as our car seats at home but it was the only practical way of giving our (tall) 3 year old son some protection. It takes up little room and is very light. I think it gives some cushioning and it seems to offer a small degree of side protection. It also allows you to fit the three-point seat belt over your child using the adjustable loop - although it is not perfect, our son has never complained about it being uncomfortable.
We have also used the easy car seat for car journeys in the UK when we have to fit an adult between the two car seats in the back. We have big rear-facing car seats for our boys and normal-sized adults cannot fit between them. The blow-up seat can be moved over a little and because it is inflatable it is quite confortable to sit next to. We have also used it when we need to fit three child seats across the back as it squeezes in nicely, even between forward-facing seats.
It inflates and deflates very easily. The dark blue colour does get a bit hot in the sun in the car as it is quite plasticky, we try to keep it in the shade if using it on a hot day.
Safety is most important to me and I like to keep our 4 year old son rear-facing - I do not use the blow-up seat on a frequent basis, and only when other options are not practical. That said, when we really need something more flexible and transportable it is great. We would really struggle without it so I have to give it 5 stars.
