Why The Original Fatboy Lamzac is Our Family Travel Must-Have

Introducing The Original Fatboy Lamzac

When I suggested to Patrick that the Original Fatboy Lamzac 2.0 I had been gifted was going to be a great addition to our family travel adventures around Ireland and beyond. He was sceptical. Sceptical because it was an air lounger.

He believed that it might look ‘the business’ on the box. But he really didn’t believe that this inflatable couch was going to be ready to use in seconds.

But he proved himself wrong, the very first time we used it. And now he agrees that it comes along on every road trip we take. In fact most times he instigates it!

And it’s so light, a child can carry it. But always under supervision because the bag has drawstrings. More on using the Lamzac with your littles below.

Peg in place if you’re outside, not inside obviously. And you’re ready to relax!

Family Friendly

The Original Fatboy Lamzac is family friendly. And you’ll be hard-pressed to keep your littles away from enjoying it.


However as per the guidelines, the Original Fatboy Lamzac is only suitable for children over six years old. And although it can be used inside or outside – it is not a toy, nor a floatation device. Safety is required around all children and pets at all times – because they may crawl in and suffocate. Smith loves it but he is never, ever, left unattended with it.


But as you can see even when I take time to lie back and relax. I’m never left unattended either! But I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Of course there’s room on this Fatboy Lamzac for two more!
