As if we weren’t already blown away by the mifold Grab-and-Go Booster Seat – the most advanced, compact and portable booster seat in the world designed for kids ages 4+ – now they’ve gone and kicked the design up a notch with the new mifold Sport! The newest addition to the mifold family is the same luxurious, compact and portable booster seat, now with a sporty look. Not only is the design super cool, but the integrated reflective red racing stripes actually highlights the correct routing through the lap and shoulder belt guides for easier buckling up when it’s time to hit the road. The mifold Sport is over 10x smaller (and obviously much lighter) than a regular booster, yet just as safe! While regular booster seats bring a child up to adult height, the mifold Sport does the opposite by holding the seatbelt down. No more bulk!
Find it: mifold Sport, available from Friday, 10 August 2018 will retail in Singapore for $99 including a free drawstring bag. Preorder now on Taxibaby.sg
Good news mamas – the regular mifold Grab-and-Go is dropping down to just $69 once the mifold Sport launches!
