MiFold Grab and Go review
This car seat has passed the regulatory tests required by the ECE R44.04 standard to be sold as suitable for children from 15-36kg, that's around three or four years old up to 12 years old. However, in our own more stringent tests, which include a side-impact crash test (something not included to pass the test for R44.04), it scored poorly, so the score is automatically downgraded and it becomes a Don't Buy car seat.
However, in our own more stringent tests, which include a side-impact crash test (something not included to pass the test for R44.04), it scored poorly, so the score is automatically downgraded and it becomes a Don't Buy car seat.A backless booster seat offers virtually no side-impact protection at all, so a good score in any of our other tests can't compensate for this poor result.

The Mifold Grab and Go booster seat claims to be the 'most advanced, compact and portable booster seat in the world'. This backless booster seat was crowd-funded and first went on sale in 2016. It's super small and the brand claims that it's 'just as safe' as a booster seat, but we've made this seat a Don't Buy. Read the safety alert attached to our review to find out why.
