Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words. We brought the Melissa & Doug Grocery Cart to Cape Cod with us this summer to photograph it for our catalog. Mira was a willing model, but the first few shots were a little stiff and we were trying to get her to loosen up. Suddenly, she started jumping, using the cart for support. Frightened that the cart would tip over, I almost stopped her. But then I realized the cart wasn’t tipping. Not even a little bit.
This miniature cart is incredibly heavy duty – just like the real thing. When we had it at the Cape, we had a blast watching how the kids interacted with it. The toddlers loved putting a favorite stuffed animal inside and pushing it around. The older kids were creating all kinds of elaborate play scenarios around it. After that experience, this is one of my top picks for this holiday season. We’re giving one away today. Enter to win.
