For the car loving dad
Who wants an ugly booster seat in the back of their lovely car? Well the mifold is a new Grab-and-Go Booster seat. It’s more than 10x smaller than a regular booster seat and it’s just as safe. Regular booster seats raise a child upwards to fit an adult seat belt, mifold’s unique patented design does the exact opposite. Instead of lifting the child up, mifold actively lowers the adult seat belt to fit the child snugly, taking the belt off the stomach and the neck and making it comfortable, safe and easy to use for children from the age of 4 all the way up to 12 years. Mifold will be launching on the 01st of June (to coincide with Child Safety Week) where people will be able to pre-order through their crowdfunding campaign. The retail price will be £34.99 but during the pre-order period it will be significantly reduced to £23. Plus there will be lots of other great deals and promotions, like multipacks, limited editions, personalisation etc.
Shaving gift idea
