An Inflatable Car Seat. Really.

I saw this inflatable car seat over at LilSugar, and I have to know what you think. As I’ve mentioned, I’m consumed with all things travel now that I’m preparing for a cross-country trek with my toddler. Oh how tempting it would be to leave my bulky car seat at home (along with the hefty airport fee for checking it) and pull a car seat out of my bag. Talk about the ultimate in travel gear.

And then there’s the logical side of me…

The Easy Car Seat ($87) is a blow-up booster seat for kids 3 years and up that blows up in 30 seconds, installs in 1 minute and weighs a little over 1 pound.

But can it possibly be safe? For a 3 year old?

The company claims that the car seat itself was made by a “leading automobile interior manufacturer” in Europe, fully compliant with EU and USA Vehicle Safety Standards.¬†And because, I’m assuming, there are more skeptical parents out there besides me, they give the specifics on their safety and crash tests. But a bunch of federal regulation numbers won’t convince me that this car seat is completely safe, as much as it would revolutionize family travel.

Take a look at the Easy Car Seat video and let us know what you think:
