Stop the Cart!

cartstopper1Have you ever been trying to unload your groceries or other bags from a shopping cart and suddenly the cart had a mind of its own?

This is one of those “innovative, one-of-a-kind child safety products” that only a mom could think of! And their product, Cart-Stopper™, is one that many say can reduces the risk of child injury from ‘run-away’ shopping carts.

cartstopper2But I’m thinking of those of us who have a chronic illness who struggle with carts and don’t have the ability to actually run after the cart when it takes off toward that brand new black convertible that is parked next to us.

I can certainly understand and appreciate the safety issue that this gadget gives to preventing runaway carts because I am a mom and I’ve seen the danger of your child drifting away from you. It’s as if it’s in slow motion but somehow you can’t keep up.

But as a mom with a chronic illness, I appreciate it even more.

And for those of you without kids, it would still be a handy gadget! There have been more than one time I tried to hold onto a cart, keep my child safe and unload everything, all with two bad shoulders.

Cart-Stopper™ can be purchased at their web site for just $9.99 and free shipping as an anniversary special (no date for the expiration of free shipping is given.) They also have a nice blog about other child safety issues.
