One of the main reasons many parents are put off by travelling with young children is the amount of organising and stress associated with all the products and gadgets that are needed to facilitate safe journeys.
So when a revolutionary new product is launched that really takes the hassle out of lugging a booster seat with you when you go abroad, then of course MTM wanted to be one of the first to test it out!
Looking ahead to our first trip with the baby to Lisbon at Easter, I’ve been contemplating the need to take our car seat as well as a bulky booster seat for Monkey, both of which we need when making the transfer journey from the airport to the city. And paramount in my mind is their safety.
Introducing the mifold – the Grab-and-Go Booster® seat which is more than 10x smaller than a regular booster seat. Not only is it lightweight – no heavier than a bottle of water – the mifold is also strong and sturdy, as well as a Group 2/3 seat which can be used by children from the weight of 15kg which is approximately the age of four years old. It also complies with the highest legal standards for child restraint systems.
How does mifold work?
Regular child restraints lift a child up to be in the position of an adult, whereas mifold does the exact opposite by holding the seatbelt down in a suitable position for a child. With three belt guides, mifold adjusts the lap belt and shoulder strap to fit the child and accurately holds the seat belt on the hip bones and shoulder, offering the correct amount of restraint in case of impact.
MTM are excited to be reviewing the mifold – which is available to buy at John Lewis and other selected retailers – later this year, but in the meantime we’re offering one reader the chance to win one for themselves. All you have to do is enter the Rafflecopter below. Best of luck and I’ll announce the winner in a week’s time.
