Genius Car Booster Seat Is So Cool I Wish I Was A Kid Again - Whole Mom

Meet the Mifold. It may look like a Star Wars spacecraft but in fact it’s a grab-and-go car booster seat that’s 10x smaller than a typical booster seat. And just as safe! This is the most innovative development in car seats ever. Genius!

It’s the kind of simple idea that makes you go”Why didn’t I think of that!” Instead of lifting the kid to the position of an adult like a typical booster seat, the Mifold pulls the seatbelt down to the correct height for the child.

Kids apparently love it! Jon Sumroy, the Mifold inventor, says “Most kids—who are ambivalent about regular car seats—think that it is cool and like a gadget. In research, they compare it to their iPads. Most parents are sick of the constant battles to persuade their bigger kids to use a child restraint. Mifold is almost invisible in use so friends cannot see it and bigger kids are finally happy to agree to being protected.

It’s essentially a folding cushion built on a rigid aluminum base. Each side has a slot where the lap belt is hooked and it moves the belt down to the correct level. In addition, there’s a second slot for the shoulder strap. Check it out:
