Sneak Peek: Mifold Grab and Go Booster
We had an opportunity to meet with the inventor of mifold booster, Jon Sumroy, today at the ABC Kids Expo. There has been a lot of buzz about this innovative new product and we were excited to get our first look at it. Thankfully we can report that we were not disappointed and even though this is still in prototype stage, we are very excited and optimistic about the final product! It is available for preorder now and is expected to be released in March 2016.
IIHS has already received a pre-production mifold model and has given an unofficial Best Bet rating (it is unofficial because it wasn’t a purchased production model). Based on feedback received on our forums at Car-Seat.org, they did slightly redesign the original model for the American market to get that Best Bet rating.
