BubbleBum Competition!

Bubblebum3Hello family travellers.  We have a fantastic competition for you this week.

Win a BubbleBum inflatable booster seat

You may well have read our review of our the BubbleBum inflatable car booster seat here on the BabyAbroad Blog.  If you did, you would know how much we rate this fantastic travel product.  Two years on from that review, we are still using ours regularly.  Being, able to deflate it to put in your hand luggage, makes it great for travel especially for use in taxis, hire cars, etc. and in our day to day use if we have extra kids in the car, it comes in very useful then too.  And so, we are super pleased that BubbleBum have given us one of their funky new Black and Silver boosters to give away to one lucky BabyAbroad reader.

How to enter

Most of us have taken a long car journey with the kids and we all dread that phrase “Are we nearly there yet?”, particularly if it’s 5 minutes into the journey!  Kids love music and it’s a good way to pass some of the journey, so we were wondering which songs keep your kids entertained.

All you have to do to enter our fantastic BubbleBum comp is to answer the following question with a comment in the comment box below.

“What is your child’s favourite song to be played or sung on long car journeys?”

Competition closes midnight Thursday 4 July 2013. Entry is limited to one per person. Please note that automated entries will be deleted.

Don’t forget to tell your friends.

Do remember to share this comp on facebook and twitter using the buttons below… you don’t want friends to miss out on the chance to win one!  And if you don’t want to miss the competition results or other fantastic prizes, add your email address to that box there in the right hand column of the blog to receive updates direct to your inbox.
