If schlepping car seats is on your “stuff I won’t miss about parenting” list, Mifold might be the booster of your dreams. Great for long hauls or carpools, it weighs 1.6 lbs and is so compact you can fit it into a backpack (cue singing angels!).
Here’s how Mifold works: Instead of lifting kids up, it holds the seatbelt down so it stays positioned on kids’ shoulder and hips, but away from their face, neck and delicate stomach area. There’s no installation needed (it’s designed to work without a UAS system) but kids need to meet the weight requirements, and be able to sit up properly during car rides.
An impressive ten times smaller than your average booster, you can fit three across, and it comes in cool colours like lime green and perfect pink. Most importantly, it meets Transport Canada’s rigorous RSSR safety regulations. Based on reviews, tykes have been giving this portable powerhouse ‘thumbs-up’ for comfort while parents find it extra easy to install (once they’ve followed the instructions carefully). Talk about a joy ride.
Who It’s For:
Kids 40 lbs to 100 lbs, and their harried parents
