Did you know that UK law requires that all children must use the correct child car seat until they are 12 years old or 135cm in height (whichever comes first)? Now there is absolutely no excuse not to use a seat with mifold – the grab-and-go booster seat! mifold – the grab-and-go booster seat is actually 10x smaller than a regular booster seat and it is so compact making it perfect for using in friends cars or travelling.
mifold is very compact and light so you can slip it into a child’s bag, store it in the glove compartment, door pocket or in the seat pockets. It’s never going to get in the way if it is not being used like a regular booster seat will! I think we have all been in the situation where we haven’t had a booster seat available and risked them using the adult belt because it’s only 5 minutes home but with mifold there really is no excuse.
A regular booster seat lifts a child to the position of an adult so they can use the seat belt but mifold does the exact opposite by holding the seat belt down. It has three belt guides that adjusts the lap belt and shoulder strap to fit the child and accurately holds the seat belt on the hip bones and shoulder, offering the correct amount of restraint incase of impact.
It is very simple to use but does take me a couple of minutes longer to put Bugs in the car as you need to make sure that the lap belt is through both lap guides before making sure that the shoulder belt is through the shoulder belt and in the correct position.
What is also great about mifold is that it is so much smaller so we can actually fit three bums in the back of our small back seat comfortably now, so when Liam is at home we can all go out without the usual moaning of being squashed together because of the booster seats. You could easily three mifold on our back seat!
Bugs feels much more grown up using the mifold as he says that his booster seat was babyish so he would much rather use the mifold nowadays. The only thing he doesn’t like about it is the fact that he hasn’t worked out how to get himself out of it yet, which to me is a good thing!
Now we have the perfect solution for when we go on holiday and have a hire car, instead of paying ridiculous prices to hire a booster seat we just take along mifold, happy days! It’s small enough to just slip into our hand luggage so it’s always on hand.
