Cartstopper -- A review and giveaway.

I got the opportunity to try out a new safety product last week. The Cartstopper.

Have you ever gone to the grocery store alone with the kids and the buggy tries to roll away as you are loading groceries into the car. You know what I mean, you have to keep one hand on the buggy, and use the other to load the bags into the car.

Not any more.

The Cartstopper is designed to attach the buggy to your car, so you can load the groceries without fear that your child(ren) will be rolling off in the buggy.

The Cartstopper sticks to your vehicle with a large suction cup while a plastic "handle" holds the cart in place. The Carstopper is easy to affix to the car, and easy to remove.

I took the girls with me to Kroger, it was a drizzly day, and it was just me and the girls. A great day to try out this new device. The car, was mostly clean, and the suction stuck to it just fine. The rain, though light, did not affect it at all. I loved that the cart stayed where I had put it and I didn't have to worry about the girls or my groceries. Unloading the cart was a snap and when I was through, it took seconds to release the cartstopper so I could return the cart to the corral. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who ever goes shopping alone with kids. It is a very novel concept! I only wish it was around 4 years ago when Caity was a baby!

That is such a great idea! I know it will take off and make millions! I love that it is so small you can put it in your purse or diaper bag. I was thinking it was going to be a large contraption!
