Pros And Cons Of Tiny Shopping Carts


1. Your little ones push the cart for you.

2. Tiny carts discourage you from buying things you don’t really need.

3. It’s fun for your kids. They get to role-play and most kids love to be involved. If you keep a list and have them help you find the items on your list, it becomes a game and it’s easier to avoid unwanted distractions as they walk through the store.

4. They’re cute.


1. You risk having your child throw everything at their eye level in the cart. If you actually let your child do this and then leave the cart for someone else to take care of, then you yourself are a con.

2. The imminent threat of a tiny cart crashing into a display.

3. They’re tiny. They don’t fit much in them.

4. Since they’re operated by children, they can slow you down.

There are probably a great deal more pros and cons to these tiny shopping carts that seem to be increasing in popularity, but I generalized some of these to be simple. If you have experience with these and would like to share your own pros and cons in the comments, then by all means, do so. I’m still a little up in the air about these tiny contraptions.
