Having covered a similar query before I continue to get questions like the following:

Do Bumbo make a car seat?“, “Is it safe to use my Bumbo in the car?” and “Is the Bumbo a car seat?” and feel I need to address this issue again.

It is extremely dangerous to use your bumbo baby chair as a car seat.  There is a specific warning on the back of the chair which reads:

“Never use as a car seat”

If you need any more convincing then consider this video which shows a crash test of children’s car seats.  As you watch the video consider that instead of a proper car seat, a Bumbo instead.

I hope that has convinced you that using a Bumbo as a car seat is not a good idea! Far better for your piece of mind to invest in a fit for purpose car seat than even risk making a short journey with your baby in the car in their Bumbo!

Bumbo Car Seat

Are Bumbo releasing a car seat?

Back to the original question, and the answer?  Unfortunately not, after multiple emails to the South African head office there is still no word on a car seat, however it would be a logical next step to add one to the Bumbo range.

What do you think?  We would love to hear on Facebook.
