About six months ago, I had my three children along with me on errands at my local grocery store. I know I dont’ have to tell most of you Mommas how stressful that can be. As I walked out I realized the wind became fierce and it was obviously about to storm.
I was almost to the finish line, the grocery store was my last stop and the marathon of the day would be over. As I’m getting the groceries into the trunk, my daughter asks me to help her with the door to get in. I literally took my eyes off the grocery cart, which held all my groceries and very precious cargo… my toddler. He screamed in excitment as the cart started rolling into the middle of the driving lane of the parking lot.
You have NEVER seen a Momma move so fast to catch it. The incident lasted a whole 8 seconds, but my heart was racing, my guilt overwhelmed me, and I thought to myself There has to be a better way!
In fact, there IS a better way with Cartstopper! This a device designed specifically for those grocery trips. It works like a suction cup, adhering your cart to your vehicle, so you can have those extra hands to put groceries away AND keep your child safe.
Dyanna, the creator of Cart Stopper by My Lil’ Monkey’s, generously sent me my own Cart Stopper to use and I was more than anxious to try it out. I was not at all suprised to find out it is so easy to use! You stick the “plunger” end to your vehicle and the other end between the bars of the grocery cart. You then lock it in place and your are done! Your cart stays in place and your mind is at ease.
The Cart Stopper is not at all huge and bulky so you can carry it easily in your purse or diaper bag or if you’re like me and forget things easily, you can just leave it in the trunk of your car. This gadget is all about function, but you can proudly display your favorite color by choosing Red, Light Blue, or Pink.
