    Bubblebum or MiFold for travel?

    We have a couple of upcoming airplane trips with our kiddos, and were planning to carry on our Cosco Rise NBB for our oldest who will be 7.

    While talking with my mom, she said "It would be so nice if there was a booster that folded up small so you could put it in a bag." When I told her that there are actually 2, but I really don't want to shell out the $25-35 for either a Bubblebum or MiFold that we wouldn't use that often. She surprised me by saying that they would rather have the compact booster in their cars for the 1-2 times a month the kiddos ride with them so they don't always have to have the seat taking up space. They will buy a pair of whatever I find is best for us to use for travel and them to use otherwise.

    So... now I am researching compact boosters. From the research I have done it looks like the Bubblebum is a bit more comfortable and better fit to more kiddos/vehicles, but the MiFold may last longer and folds up smaller? I am leaning toward the Bubblebum, but any opinions would be appreciated.

    Kiddo: Almost 7 YO, 52" 60lb
    Vehicles: PT Cruiser Convertible, Nissan Frontier Pickup, various rental cars
    Big Boy G: 11/6/2012, 53lb/49", Evenflo Procomfort RightFit HBB, Evenflo Big Kid HBB
    Little Bro C - 12/4/2015, 32lb/38" Graco Nautilus 65 Safety Surround, Graco Atlas 65
    Extra Seats: Graco Nautilus 65, Cosco Apt 50, Evenflo Maestro, Harmony Defender, Graco Turbobooster NBB, Cosco Rise NBB
