About Glamping Hub

Here at Glamping Hub, we understand that there is more to life than increasing its speed, there is more to human connection than screens, and more to work than clocking in and out. We appreciate every day that we have been given and want our time to be vivid and meaningful. Our experiences matter and we’re sure you feel the same. We want to help you disconnect from your daily routine and get outdoors, where you can enjoy what Planet Earth really has to offer.
Across 115 countries, we have hand-picked a selection of properties that provide not only style and comfort, but all in an unbeatable outdoor location. It doesn’t matter if you want to go skiing or snowboarding, fishing, hiking, or even wine tasting, the great outdoors offers itself to your imagination. We know that for some travelers, the destination is the occasion, the place you go isn’t simply a commodity, it is not just how close it is to the heart of a city or how much street parking is on offer. For some, the uniqueness of the accommodation is the reason for travel, it’s a place to unwind, explore, and grow as a person.
To-Gather is our philosophy that amazing experiences are best shared with those you love. Whether you’re traveling with that special someone, your family, or friends, often it is whom you are with, that makes an experience truly memorable.

About Starlux Games

Starlux Games is run by a small team of people with a shared history in youth advocacy and work in the nonprofit sector. We find inspiration in myth, game play and the outdoors – but we draw purpose from what our games offer:
Motivation for people to put their devices aside (computers, phones, TVs) and INTERACT.

Bubble Bum

2019 Summer Fun Summer Travel Gift Guide Page - Bubble Bum
The Perfect Booster Seat for Summer Fun and Summer Travel.  Easy to carry wherever you go!

About Bubble Bum

BubbleBum is the award winning foldable, ultra portable inflatable car booster seat (for ages 4-11) that is ideal for daily use, road trips, fly ins with car rental, Uber and Lyft rides, carpooling and more. It inflates and deflates in seconds and easily fits into a backpack, large purse or tote bag. Parents love the fact that its compact nature allows for three across the back while kids love the fun colors. It has earned the IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) Best Bet Award 8 years in a row. BubbleBum was invented by Irish mom Grainne Kelly after she grew frustrated and concerned for her children’s safety while traveling.

While there are other portable devices on the market, BubbleBum offers the crucial ‘boost’ provided by a true booster seat which is important because it provides height, which raises the child up, so that their legs fall comfortably downwards towards the floor.  Without the boost, if the child is positioned correctly, with their back firmly against the back of their seat, their legs would be at a right angle to their body. A child in this position will quickly become uncomfortable, and to compensate they will slouch in the seat introducing slack into the vehicle seat belt.  In the event of a crash this slack can cause the lap belt to ride up into the soft tissues of the child’s abdomen causing life threatening injuries.

BubbleBum comes in black, chevron pink, and three international designs: Stars and Stripes, Union Jack and Irish Shamrocks. It is available on Amazon for $29.99, twin packs available for $59.98

Everything else is great!!
