mifold - The Grab-and-Go Booster - Review

mifold® Grab-and-Go® booster seat, the most ad- vanced, compact, and portable child car safety seat in the world, won first prize for the Consumer Products Category in NASA Tech Briefs Magazine’s 2016 Create the Future Design Contest. The prestigious competition, sponsored by popular companies such as Intel, HP and NVIDIA, featured over 1,100 competitors from more than 60 countries this year alone.

“We are incredibly thrilled,” said Jon Sumroy, creator of mifold. “It is an honor to be recognized by such a respected competition, and we are delighted to be chosen as the 2016 winner of the Consumer Products Category. There were many creative and ad- vanced designs, and we were proud to be considered among them.”

The annual contest has attracted over 12,000 product design ideas since its inception in 2002, and mifold joins a prominent and exclusive group of winners. To congratulate the winners of the contest, an awards dinner will be held on Friday, Nov. 11 at the Water Club in New York City.
mifold is more than 10 times smaller than a regular booster seat. The patented, compact design takes the seat belt off the stomach and neck, making it comfortable, safe, and easy to use. On one in five trips - whether in the car, on vacation, or in general transpor- tation – children do not have the appropriate safety restraint. Because of mifold’s com- pact and portable size, it’s easy to keep with kids for use anytime and can even be kept in cars or airplane cabins without causing clutter or losing extra space.

“I recognized the hassle that comes along with the size of regular booster seats when my children were in a carpool or getting picked up by their grandparents,” Sumroy said. “So I thought if I could design a booster that was mighty small and mighty strong, one that kids could take with them everywhere, then they could always be safe no matter whose car they’re in.”

The groundbreaking idea raised more than $2.5 million through a successful crowd- funding campaign, and has sold more than 60,000 mifold seats. People from more than 130 countries participated in the campaign, adding up to more than 30,000 backers. mi- fold recently launched in several major U.S. retailers and has signed exclusive distribu- tion agreements with more than 14 countries worldwide.

Our Thoughts
I have two children that are left in booster seats. One will be there for a while yet, while in February one will be free and clear because he is meeting the hight, age and weight requirements. Until February or even if he needs a booster after he meets the requirements, the mifold will fit the bill! 
This small booster makes perfect for those kiddos that travel or are just about ready to make that transition from booster to no booster. The mifold folds down to about the size of a woman's wallet and fits nicely in a purse or backpack. It also saves so much room when you have multiple car seats in a smaller vehicle. 

What I like the best about this booster is that it is compact and portable. I love that even though it doesn't seem like it by just looking at it, that it is safe and does the job that it needs to do. And what I love even more is that the kids say the mifold is comfortable and it is simple enough for them to use by themselves. 

If you are looking for a compact booster, look no further! You can find the booster on their website in multiple colors and you can even purchase a carrying case for the booster!
