mifold to Launch Second Booster Seat Innovation “hifold by mifold” With Crowdfunding Campaign Introducing the Most Compact High Back Booster Seat Ever. For Parents, By Parents

mifold, inventor of the ultra-compact car seat category, today officially introduced its latest product, and second crowdfunding campaign, ‘hifold by mifold™’. The highback Grab-and-Go Booster™ brings unparalleled compact portability to the car seat category for parents and caregivers who prefer a high back booster seat. The official Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign will launch during the summer

Starting today, interested customers can register on https://gethifold.com/ for updates and the chance to be the first to place pre-orders with the best early-bird discounts of up to 50 percent off the recommended retail price.

hifold is the first-ever highback booster seat that is compact enough to pack in a backpack, duffle bag or small suitcase, relieving parents of headaches and concerns during travel and on-the-go situations.

hifold was created by parents for parents to make their busy schedules easier to manage. hifold ensures a child’s safety and comfort are priority, whether carpooling, traveling or during everyday situations. “We are living through a transportation revolution with a shift from car ownership to car usage,” said Jon Sumroy, mifold CEO and inventor. “More and more people are ride-hailing and ride-sharing. When you need to take your car seats to and from the car, they have to be lightweight, compact and portable.”

Sumroy continued, “Many people asked us to bring the benefits of compact portability to highback booster seats. After more than two years of intensive development, we created hifold. Children still travel without a child restraint in at least 25 percent of car journeys. Our vision is to have a child restraint for every child, in every car, on every journey, every time.  hifold folds up to be so compact, portable and convenient that parents no longer need to cut corners and take risks with their child’s safety.”

Highlights of hifold include:

  1. Ultra-Compact: Lightweight, foldable and portable; 3x smaller than a regular highback booster when folded and easy to carry around.

  2. Safety First: Designed, engineered and tested to meet or exceed the regulatory requirements of every country on earth. Eight ultra-compact impact protection zones, with four layers for protection, safety and comfort.

  3. Adjustable: The most adjustable high back booster seat – the height, lap and shoulder width, and head rest can easily be adjusted to grow as the child grows.

  4. Advanced: Patented design and engineering.

  5. Comfortable: A soft, comfortable PU foam with airflow washable fabric™, and energy absorbing, dense EVA foam layer for added comfort and support.

  6. Proven Success: hifold is the product of mifold, a trustworthy company with a record of success.

 

mifold is known for its flagship product, the original mifold Grab-and-Go booster seat, which created the ultra-compact car seat category. Three years ago, mifold became the most successful crowdfunding campaign ever for a juvenile product: raising nearly three million dollars and delivering seats to customers in more than 150 countries. Since then, mifold has sold more than half a million seats around the world.

hifold will come to market in early 2019. It will be sold in the United States for $179.00 MSRP. Learn more about how to use the product here.
