hifold, the fit-and-fold booster
I am really excited to talk to you about the Mifold hifold booster. One of the most frequent questions I get asked about vanlife as a family of five is where do we fit everything in a T5? Where do you all sleep in a campervan, and where do we store three car seats? The truth is we have always had to pack a small pop up tent to store all of the big items and general paraphernalia that comes with three kids that can be difficult to store in the camper.
I think back to a time when we hired a car out in Italy. I remember taking all of the car seats and walking around the airports with three high back boosters strategically balanced on all of our cases and three kids in tow. Despite this safety has always been paramount, and we will always ensure car seats are available on all of our journeys, in any car, in any part of the world.
Then there is travel that involves day trips or taxis. I will not compromise car safety for the children on any of our road trips or travels.
So when I learned about the Mifold bifold fit and fold booster I couldn’t wait to try it out on our campervan travels.
About Mifold hifold, fit-and-fold booster
So let me tell you about Mifold Bifold fit and fold booster.
Hifold is the world’s most adjustable booster, designed to grow with the child. It is also the most portable hiback booster seat – measuring 25 x 34.4 x 34.4 cm when folded ( it basically fits in a rucksack when folded!!). It has a built in carry strap and storage bag that is included and weighs as little as 4.6kg.
Hifold has 243 individual settings that can be adjusted separately in 4 areas to make sure that the positioning of the seatbelt is always correctly on the collar bone and hip bones of the child.
1. the head width – 3 settings
2. the body width – 3 settings
3. the seat width – 3 settings
4. the height – 9 settings
It is designed for both everyday use and travel and is designed to grow with your child. It can be used for children aged 4-12 weighing between 15 – 45 kg and for children up to 150 cm tall. It is also a narrow car seat, designed to fit 3-in-a-row in the majority of cars which is incredible. We had to swap our car to accommodate three car seats in the back which is a very expensive option!!!!

MIFOLD HIFOLD REVIEW
We are absolutely thrilled with this booster seat. It is perfect for travel and it ensures that we do not compromise on safety on our travels. It is super lightweight (my seven year old can carry it!) and it fits in our campervan cupboard rather than having to take an additional pop up tent to store the bulky car seats. The seat is really straightforward to fold, and to set up. Instructions are clear and the buttons are easy to navigate.
I love that the fabric is easy to remove and wash – for anyone who has had kids who have been travel sick in the car in the past – this is a lifesaver!!!!
The seat is a comfortable PU (polyurethane) foam, not particularly deep but that is not a problem. The children said the seat was comfortable. It is a narrow car seat but had a huge thumbs up from the kids. I also love that their are additional colours – mifold comes in 5 colours in the UK and Ireland : Perfect Pink, Denim Blue, Lime Green, Slate Grey and Pearl Grey.
Currently retailing at £155.00 and comes with a 1 year manufacturer warranty.
