I bought this Little Helper's Grocery Cart, along with the Life Style Dream Kitchen for My Granddaughter, she is twenty months old. She enjoys playing with her grocery cart ,the cart is made of durable material , I like the fact that it does not have any holes on the sides like other grocery shopping carts, which prevents her plastic foods and fruits from falling out of the cart. She also likes her Dream kitchen very much. She likes to cook so many different foods for her mom and dad . I like the fact that the kitchen has an over light. Its a durable material . The only thing is that the holes where the microwave goes screwed to, are in the wrong place, my daughter had to screw another screw next to it. I wish that Step 2 will keep an eye on this fact , for future kitchens .

This is probably the only product from Step2 that I have ever purchased and was not wild about. I wanted to love it but just didn't. Overall I feel like there are better shopping carts out there.

My dislikes are:

-the cart feels pretty light and tipsy. It doesn't take much strength to turn it over, even a 2 year old can easily do this.
-the design makes it wider and more bulky so it takes up too much real estate in our living room for the amount of use it gets

I do however think it has a very cute design and it is well made (no sharp edges etc)But the bottom line is I am donating this one to charity and have purchased a more sturdy metal version from another children's product company.

    Comments about Step2 Little Helper's Grocery Cart™:

    I bought this toy used, and it is still wonderful. I have had it for over a year, and my 2, now 3 year old uses it almost everyday. He uses it and runs in a parking lot by our house for almost 30+ minutes 4+ days/week. It is very durable, the tires are still intact...no holes from his extended use. I am thinking about buying a second one for my younger child. I think this is very durable and worth the money.

      Comments about Step2 Little Helper's Grocery Cart™:

      This shopping cart was given by my mother to my 2 yr old. We were both disappointed at how bulky the whole thing is and how LITTLE of a space for the cart is! The cart is shallow and small, it can barely hold anything! Shopping carts should have a large basket to be able to hold more as it is intended. Also, The product is very bulky, thick plastic and oddly shaped, it fits nowhere comfortably in the house. Seems meant to be outdoors?

        Comments about Step2 Little Helper's Grocery Cart™:

        Love the product! I bought it to help my daughter walk and because she loves pushing things around the house. Love the idea of letting a doll or animal sit in the fruit. Not an excessive amount of room to carry things - just enough. I knew this before reading the comments it is easy to flip/fall when she's pulling her self up. It's less likely to happen if she's pushing it backwards. Haven't tried to the sand suggestion someone posted. Over all, it will be easy to clean and appears to be be durable enough to weather a bunch of years!

        I bought this toy for my grandson's first birthday. I have four children of my own; the youngest is a sophomore in college. When my children were young, I ran a state licensed pre-school and daycare in my home. I had many Step2 products for my own children and for my business. I was never disappointed by the quality or design of these products, and they provided many hours of safe, creative play. I am so happy that I can continue to buy Step2 toys for my grandchildren.

        I have yet to meet a child that is not in tune with the "Eeyore syndrome" meaning the love of putting things into a container and then taking them out. Couple that with a cart to push and move contents from one place to another, I foresee great fun at our house with our grandkids!

        My granddaughter received a "kitchen" for her birthday and I can see that she needs a shopping cart to complete her kitchen. I chose this cart because of the quality of product and Step2 name. In addition, it stated that there is no assembly necessary. I am anxious to receive and see how delighted my granddaughter will be.

        A shopper on Nov 3, 2013
        BEST ANSWER: I found this one to be more sturdy my 3 year old has even sat in the back. Also it dosent have any slots in the cart area so nothing falls thru. I love this cart I will buy it for my nephew when he gets a bit older.
