Giveaway: Win A Melissa & Doug Shopping Cart!
Schlepping to the supermarket with young kids is not a job for the faint-hearted. I would actually vote for a law that would make it illegal. However, until that day comes it remains an unavoidable task of mommyhood. Trying to keep our 4 and 2-year-olds from trouble’s door is almost impossible. They both want to push the shopping cart and they fight it out till we’re back in the car again.
Now with a little help from our friends at Gummylump, we may have solved the problem. Gummylump sent us a Melissa and Doug Shopping Cart to review. This sturdy toy is intended for kids 3 and up. It took me around 10 minutes from opening the box to finished assembly. This cart is a miniature carbon copy of those found in the supermarket. There is a little seat for a dolly or bear and the wheels swivel at the front too. There are no nasty sharp edges and the cart looks unbreakable.
We took the cart to Target and it was a joy to watch our 2-year-old following us around giggling with her little cart full of groceries. Practically everyone in the store commented on the cart and our daughter, thankfully not for ramming them with it. On this point, you still do need to pay attention to make sure that your child doesn’t run amok. There is no doubt that this is a well made and fun toy. It can be used inside the home or outside.
You can buy one for $40 at Gummylump.com. Now, for the giveaway! One lucky reader will be able to get this shopping cart delivered to their home!
