Hoppop Diaper Bag/Booster Seat: A Diaper Bag That Can Be Used As A Feeding Booster Seat!

04/04/2009 at 02:00 PM ET

Taking your children out for a meal just got easier with the Hoppop Diaper Bag/Booster Seat ($80). The Hoppop is dual-purpose product – it’s a diaper bag, which can also be used as a portable feeding booster seat.

The Hoppop holds an astonishing amount in the main section, with three pockets inside and a zippered mesh pocket under the top flap. On the outside of the Hoppop are zippered insulated pockets on each side. There’s also a large pocket outside with a changing pad and a non-slip shoulder strap. The hard plastic shell in the frame helps it turn quickly into a feeding booster seat. The bag is cute and cleverly designed so you can’t tell that it does double duty.

Converting it from diaper bag to booster seat takes only a few seconds and is really simple. Place the bag on a sturdy chair, attach the Hoppop’s shoulder strap under the chair and tighten. Then open the backrest and attach the strap behind the chair and pull the straps securely. Place child on the Hoppop and attach the three point harness. It’s recommended for children 12 months and older and will hold up to 33 pounds.  If you need to get something from the Hoppop while your child is sitting on it, just unzip the main compartment or unzip one of the two side pockets. I was impressed that I could access every pocket, even when it was being used a booster seat. To help keep things organized, items in the main storage area would benefit from being kept in smaller storage bags.

Pros: It attached very quickly and easily.

Cons: No tray.

Verdict: It was great for taking to restaurants/other people’s houses, when we weren’t sure if there would be a place for our 13 month old to sit.

its ridiculously bulky and heavy and not at all practical for a diaper bag (tried it for a few weeks)

Seems impractical to me and that it’d be easier to just have your child sit on your stand alone diaper bag…or your lap. 🙂

I just had to comment on this bag. Just bought it and love it! It is not bulky at all…actually a little bigger than the Eddie Bauer mini diaper bag. And very lightweight. My daughter loves it too.

Bought Hoppop diaper bag/booster seat few months ago after I saw it on Fox and NBC and I have to say: it’s a real great invention. Lightweight (my first diaper bag was twice as heavy), enough storage, special isothermic side pocket, extremely handy (content accessible when our son sit on it) and machine washable. Each time we go out for diner or visit friends and family we carry the Hoppop with us, very handy and always get a lot of attantion from others. In my opinion one of the better baby inventions.
I’ve searched the web and saw very stylish and sleek design Hoppop products, but can’t find them in the stores (yet). If anyone knows where to buy that Hoppop baby bath, Hoppop potty and Hoppop ride-on, please let me know.
