Fun on Aisle Five
Take your shopping list and your teddy bear and get ready to shop. Our durable metal shopping cart looks just like those in real stores. Heavy gauge steel construction includes 360 degree pivoting front wheels, easy-grip handle, and a folding seat so a child and his or her favorite companion can navigate the aisles in style.
Creative Pretend Play
There are endless play possibilities with this incredibly durable metal shopping cart.
Children love playing grocery store; they can collect play food in the shopping cart, roll to the pretend checkout and pay, or stock the shelves with supplies. Encourage sorting, planning, and motor skills by creating a shopping list with pictures or simple words and then asking a child to fill the order, or ask him or her to put all of one kind of play food in the cart (like frozen foods), then roll to the end of the room, unload it, and return for something else (like fruits and veggies).

I returned home with the plastic grocery cart (and a boatload of other things) and proudly showed my wife what I had accomplished all by myself! I expected a joyful response to my good deeds, but was met only with a reproachful glare. "Did you see the Melissa & Doug shopping cart in her Amazon wish list?", she inquired. "I did not, ma'am. Do tell me more of this product of which you speak."
As soon as I saw the M&D option, I realized how comprehensively I had failed my child, my wife, and probably everyone who had ever offered me a kind word or the time of day. Without delay, I clicked "Buy it Now" with 2 day shipping.
The grocery cart arrived promptly in a box that seemed awfully small for what was supposed to be inside. But lo and behold, the grocery cart smugly emerged, fully assembled, and was of such high quality that I almost puked. The casters (wheels) were of unreasonably high quality, and the metal of the cart itself... URG! I'm getting angry just thinking about how well this thing is made. It's in the kitchen right now, next to me as I'm typing... judging me... Comparing itself to me... Belittling me...
Stupid grocery cart.
Highly recommended, if you can HANDLE IT!
This cart is all steel, except for the plastic handle (which has a steel core), the folding plastic "kids" seat for a doll and the plastic wheels. This cart looks like the real ones in the stores and it's built to last! Assembly is a breeze, too.
The two front wheels rotate 360 degrees for steering and they are mounted on spring loaded "legs". If you child leans into the cart from the front or sides, it will compress causing a rubber "foot" to hit the floor and stop the cart from moving forward or backward. There are also rubber "feet" on the left and right sides.
The only "dangerous" thing I can see with this cart is where the plastic wheels are minimally covered by steel "fenders" for mounting purposes. I can foresee a pinched finger or two in our daughter's future, but you can't shield your children from everything in the world that might hurt them, nor do I feel you should. In this out-of-control P.C. country of ours, we're raising a nation of coddled kids that can't think or fend for themselves. OK, I'm off my soapbox!
One other thing, if this cart will be used indoors (and I'm sure it will be) it will be downright hazardous to your furniture. I have used the padded shipping material to create bumpers for the cart to try and protect our furniture. A little cutting with scissors and a few cable-ties and you're in business.
Buy this cart first, you won't be disappointed!
The capacity of the cart will hold the contents of one real-world paper grocery bag, or about 180+ pieces of play food (we have a set of 90 pieces, and this fills it half-way)...very roomy but also constructed in a boxy way so it doesn't jut too far forward like a real cart.
The cart arrives with minimal assembly required, and it comes with the only tool you'll need (allen wrench). You'll be done in 5 minutes. The cart can only fold up by disassembling it, which is easy enough but again requires the wrench.
As mentioned in other reviews, the only downside is the cart's ability to damage furniture. Easily fixed with 2 large pieces of felt (I bought these at a craft store for 30-cents per 8.5 X 11" sheet). I used gray to match the cart, blends away so you don't notice it. I cut the felt into 1- to 2-inch strips, wrapped these around the bars along the front and front corners, and secured each wrap with very thin strips of the same felt, tied in a double-knot. Took about 20 minutes and hasn't come off despite a lot of rough play.
I'd buy this again, it'll last long enough to pass on to relatives/friends when your kids outgrow it, absolutely worth the price.
