Product Review: Melissa and Doug Shopping Cart


This review is going to be pretty brief: if you’re looking for a shopping cart for your children, this is the one. Yes, the Melissa and Doug Shopping Cart is pricier than other carts at $49.99, but it could not be more realistic! With its sturdy metal construction (it is heavy at 12 pounds), it glides around so easily and even has a folding doll seat for you child’s favorite “baby”! My children love this toy, and when they add the Hape Wood Cash Register that I recently reviewed to the mix, our home turns into a real life store.



It comes in two parts, you simply need to attach two safety brackets on either side, and off you you go. I did the assembling myself in a few minutes. At 22inches high, both my 3 and 1 year old are able to push it around, but Melissa and Doug state the recommend age is 3 years and up- I would guess because this is  pretty heavy toy, and it could tip over if pushed too hard. We haven’t had any experience of that, and both kids zoom around with it everday.

It is large enough to fit all your child’s “shopping”, so you could even take it to the store with your family when you go grocery shopping, for your little one to keep themselves occupied by filling up their own cart!
