Melissa & Doug Shopping Cart Review &Giveaway

Share

The winner of the $65 CSN Stores giveaway is lucky #39 Kathy Persons . Congrats!

I'm excited today to give away a Melissa & Doug Shopping Cart from GummyLump!! I came across Gummy Lump a few weeks ago and was impressed with the selection of quality Award Winning and Special Needs toys they offer. My kids got in on the excitement when this Shopping Cart arrived for us to review!


Description:
Award Winner!
ASTRA Best Toys For Kids 2009
Toy of The Year Finalist 2010

With Melissa & Doug's Shopping Cart it's always a great time to shop!
To market, to market 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! Sturdy metal construction includes pivoting front wheels and a folding seat so your child and their favorite companion can navigate the aisles in style!

The Melissa & Doug Shopping Cart is a great addition to any pretend play food collection or grocery store!

*Play Food Accessories shown NOT included.

Educational Value: Endless pretend play possibilities!

Size: 18.5" x 22.5" x 13.5"

For Ages: 3 years and up

What we like about this Melissa & Doug Shopping Cart:
1. My 8 year old enjoys the fact that it is not too short. She doesn't have to "hunch" over to push it.
2. My 4 year old son is enjoying it as well. What child doesn't like to fill up a buggy and push it around?
3. Very sturdy. Not thin pieces of metal....quality made!
4. Has a seat for them to put their baby doll in as well.
5. Super fast shipping from Gummy Lump!!

What we didn't' like about it:
1. The only compliant my kids had was there was no bottom rack like a real grocery cart. If that is even a complaint. ~wink~ They really have enjoyed playing w/ this!

Another great product they will be coming out w/ soon are these Trunki suitcases/ride-ons! How fun are these??
