Cart-Stopper Review And Giveaway

Have you ever been at the grocery store and went to put something in the car, then turned around to see your cart full of groceries(or worse-your child) rolling down the parking lot? I've been there!

Thanks to Family Review Network and Cart-Stopper, I now have something to help me!

The mom behind the My Lil' Monkeys Cart-Stopper came up with this idea after her son rolled away in a shopping cart towards traffic. After months of testing, she and her husband started selling these fantastic products!

I've had a few close calls with the shopping carts as well. I've even developed certain skills like trying to balance one foot on the cart while loading groceries, but then I can only put 1-2 bags in the car at a time.

The Cart-Stopper has saved me so much time and hassle! It is so small that I can just throw it in the diaper bag to pull out when I get to my car. Within seconds, my cart is safely anchored to my car and I can unload my groceries and child so much easier. This is ESPECIALLY helpful now that I'm pregnant and can't chase after carts quite as fast.

At first I was a little worried about the suction on my car, but there was nothing to worry about. It is perfectly safe to use and now I have can unload the car without worrying about where my cart will end up!

Buy It!
You can purchase the Cart-Stopper in different colors for only $9.99!

I have close calls just about every time I try to unload Costco's ginormous shopping cart with my kids in tow! Those things are heavy - and have a mind of their own, just careening away if you turn your back on them for one second.

d.Rooks said...

No close calls but a lot of scrapes from where I push the cart against my car to keep it from rolling.

I do the foot holding the cart while trying to load the bags in the car trick, but always have to let go at some time and where I shop the parking lot has a slight slope, so you always end up chasing the cart a few times. This would be great for ease of mind and my dignity!

i have never had a close call yet but that is because i take my son out first and put him in the car and then take out the groceries but that is hard to do when you want to return the cart so i would love this

I have definitely had this happen to me! Luckily not with my kids, always with the groceries. I have learned how to wedge the cart just right but the wheel well of my truck to get that dang thing from rolling away!

What an ingenious invention! I got yelled at in the Target parking lot by some guy when my daughter fell and I had to let go of the (thankfully empty) cart to help her. Like I'm going to chase after a cart when my poor baby is lying face first on the ground! I'm pretty sure that guy was sorry he came over to me though because after my kids were safely in the car he got an earful. Don't mess with a hormonal woman, right!?

I've had my groceries roll away more than once. But ever since I read about the dangers to children I take my kids out first before walking away from the cart. I get frustrated seeing people unload their groceries first, Safety first =)! This is a great idea though I'd still take my kid out first thing ;)!

I think we've all had these close calls! Sometimes it's someone else's cart that hits our cars too!

Just yesterday, my cart went rolling away while I was putting my son in his carseat. Because of that, I didn't notice it was gone until it was going full speed down the parking lot! I was so afraid that it was going to hit someone's car but luckily it hit one of those planters. Phew!!

Oh boy too many times. Trying to get Cole in who is not having it and giving me grief the whole time. Turn around in time to see that my balancing act with one foot on the cart wasn't working and see poor Caden and the cart of groceries running down the lot. UGH

I even have a nice dent in the back of my car from a cart that someone let it go and didn't catch it in time or even leave a note ;(

On a very windy day, we were loading our family into a van when we saw a cart get blown and it bumped into someone's parked truck. My husband left a note for them...so, they'd know someone witnessed what happened. priscillawallace at sbcglobal dot net

My latest shopping cart fiascos have been related to my 2 year old (who refuses to ride in it anymore unless it's a race car cart) pushing them into traffic when he's supposed to be holding tightly to the side of it!

I know I have had a few runaway carts but cant recall the instance. I usually park just to the right of a cart return and sandwich the cart in between the cart return and my vehicle. what a nuisance!

Close calls? I've been hit by shopping carts too often to count...uh, my van has been hit, that is.

I think everyone should have one of these.

My shopping cart is always running off, there's just too many things to do when you're loading groceries into the car. This is great to prevent accidents!

I use my foot to hold the cart in place but I have noticed where people dont put there cart in the cart return and on a windy day not a nice site. I have seen several carts hit cars.

Sweet Mommy Dreams said...

I have put my cart up on a curb and it rolled off and as I ran to catch it, it ran into another car. Hate to say it but I just moved and walked away really fast.
