As parents, I’m sure that most of us have had those moments where we’ve found ourselves stuck without a booster seat for one of our children. From taxi rides to unplanned car journeys with the Grandparents, to the times when Gaz has taken my car to work with all three booster seats strapped in the back, there have been moments when I have kicked myself for not having a spare booster seat or, even better, one that could miraculously fit in my bag!
So you can imagine my excitement at discovering the Mifold Grab & Go Booster seat, the most advanced, compact, portable booster seat in the world! Designed for children aged 4-12 years, this multi award winning innovation takes up minimal space and acts as a car seat for any occasion.
Ten times smaller than a regular booster seat, the Mifold exceeds the European standard for car seats, combining both safety and convenience. When I initially unboxed the booster seat I was shocked by not only how small it was, but also how light weight it was, weighing no more than a bottle of water!
The most amazing part is just how small the Mifold folds up, easily fitting into a small bag, glove compartment or taking on holiday in your hand luggage.
Where as regular booster seats lift the child to an adult like position, the Mifold does the exact opposite. It adjusts to the size of the child and accurately holds the seat belt down on the hip bones and shoulder, offering the correct amount of restraint in case of impact.
The seat itself is made with aircraft grade aluminium, super tough plastic and foam padding for comfort. It can also be wiped down with a damp cloth which is always a bonus when it comes to my children!
Megan was desperate to try the Mifold and particularly loved that, although she was indeed sat on a booster, she felt very grown up on a “big girls seat”, something which, when you’re four, is really exciting!
I was really pleased with how comfortable the Mifold was for Megan to sit on, and how secure it felt when her belt was fastened and adjusted correctly. The fact that it adjusts to the size of your child is a great feature and means that you can buy one Mifold and know it will last your child from aged 4 to 12 years.
We think the Mifold is such a great idea and would recommend it to anyone who, like me, finds themselves needing an extra booster seat from time to time. For those who love to travel this really is the perfect travel companion, and with the Summer holidays ahead, it would be great for airport transfers and car hire.
The Mifold is priced at £49.95 and available in a choice of colours from John Lewis.
