mifold – the Grab-and-Go Booster

Review

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.

mifold is suitable from the age of 4 years all the way up to 12 years and is available to buy now from John Lewis and other selected retailers for £49.95.

    Oh that does look handy. We are almost past this now, but it would have been really useful a couple of years ago.

    For the amount of travelling we do, that is such a good idea! My daughter has just outgrown hers, but this would be perfect for my middle son!

    What a great idea!! I might invest on one of those as we really need a spare and I love the fact that it is so compact. I really need to check my daughter’s weight and height before the law changes too so thank you for the reminder

    What a handy gadget! Never heard of it before but it does look great, no wonder he prefers this “more grown up” version!

    We have only just took the boys out of high backed booster seats. Saftey always comes first in my book. I used to have spare ones in the boot of the car for other kids!

    I thought it was much taller than that! My son will be really pleased, I think he’s the only one still in a car seat 🙂
    This looks really handy, especially when you’re travelling abroad.

    This is a great idea for travel – hire cars on holiday etc as they don’t always have suitable car seats for kids and being so compact this would be easy to pack.

    That does look very handy. We have a boot full of booster seats for transporting other people’s children about.
