Caroline's Cart: A Shopping Solution for Special Needs Children and Adults

(Photo: Caroline's Cart)

This is Caroline. Her mom, Drew Ann Long, found it to be a great struggle to shop with her because Caroline needs to use a wheelchair. She's too big to fit inside the child seat of a standard shopping cart. So Long designed a shopping cart that fit her comfortably and safely. It's called Caroline's Cart.

The seat is big enough to accommodate a range of sizes, including adults, and provides full back support. It has a complete safety harness. Entering it is easy thanks to the open back end. There's a footrest and enough room in the front for groceries. Many shops, including Target, are adding them to their cart inventory to make shopping a more inclusive experience.

You can watch a video by Long describing her invention here.
