A revolutionary new booster seat is launching, meet the Mifold
Mifold the revolutionary new 'grab-and-go' booster seat, is the most advanced, compact and portable booster seat in the world, at more than 10 times smaller than a regular booster whilst being just as safe.
Mifold is the first significant innovation in the booster seat market since their invention more than half a century ago. A team of top designers, engineers and industry experts have together revolutionised the way that a traditional booster seat works. Whilst regular booster seats raise a child upwards to fit an adult seat belt, Mifold’s unique patented design does the exact opposite. Instead of lifting the child up, the seat actively lowers the adult seat belt to fit the child snugly, taking the belt off the stomach and the neck and making it comfortable, safe and easy to use for children from the age of 4 all the way up to 12 years.*
In the UK it is a legal requirement to have a child booster seat for any child travelling in a car under the age of 12, and most parents have booster seats available in their own car for each of their children. However there are still many journeys, such as cab rides, holidays and outings with grandparents or school friends where an appropriate booster seat is not available. And sometimes there is a surprise additional child in the car. Booster seats are bulky, heavy and a hassle to carry around ‘just in case’. This means parents have to plan in advance how to deal with these situations, usually resulting in either spontaneity disappearing or, as a last resort, in the child using the adult seat belt with no booster seat. In a collision, this is potentially very dangerous and obviously illegal.
The new Mifold seat changes this, in being so compact and portable it's practical to purchase one for each of your children, thus ensuring they have a booster seat with them at all times. It's also possible to have several booster seats available in your car not only for your own children but also for additional children without cluttering up the car as you can store a Mifold almost anywhere - glove compartment, door pocket, seat back or a child’s backpack.
Mifold are launching via funding through Indiegogo, and can be pre-ordered via their page for £20 (rather than their full price of £35 once they have launched.

* UK law requires that all children must use the correct child seat until they are 12 years old or 135 cm in height (which ever comes first). mifold is a Group 2/3 seat and can be used by children from the weight of 15kg which is approximately the age of 4 years old.
