All four of my girls are currently in car seats. The older two are in booster seats and the younger two are in standard car seats. This often creates hassles for us. If we want to fly back to Alberta to visit family, I have to haul all four car seats along with us. If one of our girls wants to carpool with another family, they need to move their car seat. So many times I’ve wished my girls were just a bit bigger—or that car seats were just a bit smaller. The Mifold booster seat is one answer to that problem!
The Mifold booster seat is a portable, safe booster seat that is less than half the size of my girls’ current booster seats. Folding to the size of a paperback book, the Mifold can fit easily into the glove box of your car or your child’s backpack. This makes it perfect for carpooling, travel, or just fitting three kids onto a seat instead of two. (In the picture above, you’d barely know Lily is using a booster seat!)
When being used, the Mifold unfolds into a flat foam surface that sits directly on the vehicle seat. While regular booster seats lift the child up to the same position as an adult, the Mifold brings the seat belt down to the child. The clips on the Mifold keep the seat belt on your child’s shoulder and off their face and neck. It also sits on the bones of your child’s hips, keeping the seat belt off their tender stomach.
Important features of the Mifold booster seat include:
- easy-clean foam padding technology for extra comfort (I’ve mentioned before how important it is to be able to clean car seats!)
- temperature regulation for hot days
- install takes 30-seconds (or less!)
- metal chassis is made with aircraft grade aluminum (the booster seat is heavier than it looks!)
- super tough plastic polymer for impact resistance
- The Mifold is available in 6 gorgeous colours for your child to pick from (my girls love the pink!)
- for children 40 to 100 lbs and 40″ to 57″
The Mifold offers a hassle-free, simple and innovative way to keep children safe and comfortable while in their booster stage. It’s time to ditch the old fashioned booster seats and look into getting a Mifold! Here you can see just how small it is on a vehicle seat:
What we thought of the Mifold booster seat
We were so excited to try the Mifold booster seat out. Both Sunshine and Lily gave it a test on different trips. While it’s easy to install the Mifold (simply unfold and place on the seat), we found it harder to get the girls buckled. In their regular booster seats, they can buckle themselves. With the Mifold, I had to help them get the seat belt into the clips and then help them unbuckle. I’m sure as we use the Mifold more, we’ll get better at this, but it was a bit frustrating to start with.
I can think of so many ways that we could use this booster seat. I could store it in our van for those times when Sunshine wants a friend to ride with us. My friend Anna, who doesn’t have a vehicle, could use a couple of these for her older girls, instead of the bigger, bulkier booster seats. If we fly with the girls, I’ll pack this booster seat instead of their bigger ones (and not have to worry about how the airline is treating our car seats).

For more information about this great new booster seat, drop by their website. There are videos and diagrams there to demonstrate how the Mifold booster seats works. You can also find Mifold on Facebook.
The Mifold booster seat is available at Canadian Tire or via the website in Canada.
I received a Mifold booster seat for the purposes of this review; all opinions expressed are my own.
I would keep it and have my daughter use it when traveling since we have an old when for our daily activities. I really hope to win big. Thanks for the chance to win such an amazing giveaway.
I would use this when I have all of my nieces and nephews at the same time! It would save so much space!
I would use it when we travel
I would use it in the car!
Would love this for my car so when I pick up my friends I can have a car seat ready to go for the kids 😀 It would come in handy for sure !
I would gift this to one of my best friends.
used for short travel trips out
This would be great to use in my daughter’s grandmother’s car.
I would give this to my cousin so she can use it in her car!
We have 4 kids in carseats and another on the way. Its either Mifolds or a new van to fit all the carseats!
I would use this when my family is traveling.
I saw this advertised and it looks quite amazing
We don’t have a vehicle and sometimes when we are out we are offered a ride home and have to decline. This would fit great in my backpack so I could carry if for those times we might need it unexpectedly.
For my moms car
this would be great for the grandparents car.
For travelling and carpooling friends. Also great for Grandparent’s car.
We would use the Mifold for days when my daughter goes out with relatives, so we don’t have to install her car seat in their car.
I would use it whenever my child is not in our car with his regular carseat. It would be so useful for travel!
I would use it in the grandparents car when they need to pick up the kids unexpectedly.
I would use this for my grand daughter’s visits
We are getting ready for a plane/car trip in the spring – would MUCH rather travel with 2 mifolds than 2 bulky boosters!
I would use it in hubbys car. 🙂
I would use this for when my niece & nephew visit, for car rides & even meals!
I would use it for picking up my grandkids. I don’t have a carseat or booster so its always a big deal to switch out theirs.
I would use it for travelling! Great for grandparents house and taxi rides!
I would use this when my parents pick up my daughter with them for shopping trips, or going to their home, picking her up from school
I would use a mifold for taxi trips.
I would use this in my husband’s truck for my son. We usually travel in my car and have to switch the booster if he happens to be going in the truck. I love the idea of the Mifold. Older kids always complain about having to use a booster seat and this is so much less noticeable.
I would most likely use it when we travel by plane. No more booster seats to check in or rent. That’s one less bulky thing to bring!
Oh wow I would love to use this for my daughter! We have a car seat and a regular size booster seat in the back of our car, which leaves almost no space for another person and we often have to squish either my mom or myself in the back middle. With this slim booster we could all fit comfortably! I also always have to send my daughter’s big bulky seat to school for field trips, play dates etc. as well as for other car trips with friends. This would be so much better, she could fit it right into her backpack! How handy!!
This would be so useful when our child is getting a ride in someone else’s car and they don’t have a booster seat. I love that it is so compact and portable!
Wow, this would come in handy in so many ways. I would use it for sending along in my kids bags for when they travel with their grandparents!
