A More Portable Seat

hifold fit-and-fold highback booster seat

More and more children are going without booster seats in cars—to potentially devastating effects. “The single largest killer of American children is car crashes,” says Jon Sumroy. “This is a public-health emergency.” One contributing factor could be that kids’ booster seats are too bulky to easily carry when using ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft. Sumroy’s company, Mifold, hopes to help reverse the trend with the Hifold ($160), a 10-lb. high-backed booster seat that has already been adopted by tens of thousands of families. Designed for kids from 33 to 100 lb., the Transformer-like device has adjustable head, torso and seat panels and collapses to roughly the size of a backpack for easy toting. “The world today is going through a personal transportation revolution,” says Sumroy. It’s time that booster seats caught up. —J.R. Sullivan
