Only in the United States of America could you stumble upon a suped up, sports car, grocery cart with dual action steering wheels. This contraption was 5 1/2 feet long. It felt like I was pushing an actual car (or a freighter) but I didn’t care; my son went from bawling to beaming in a split second. It was a magical moment; the rain stopped, the clouds parted, and a beam of light shone down from the heavens onto an abandoned, ruby red, race cart shopping cart in the parking lot. I grabbed it.

I’ve used car strollers at the mall before but I’ve never used a race car shopping cart. I highly recommend it if time isn’t a concern as the navigation was tough. It was a major workout for my arms to push the thing and turn corners. Plus, you seem to bump into everyone and everything, so get ready to say “excuse me”, “sorry”, “pardon me” a million times.

Therefore, slow and steady wins this car race. Using the race car shopping cart definitely makes shopping more enjoyable, if you’re in a browsing mood, as the kids are content. If you’re going to power shop, your best bet is to grab the regular shopping cart or better yet, leave the kids with Grandma and Grandpa.
