As the world becomes increasingly aware of the needs of the young, sick, and elderly, people are beginning to find new and innovative ways to help them and their caretakers. Drew Ann Long was one such mother who decided to get crafty when she was having difficulty maneuvering her wheelchair-dependent daughter while trying to keep track of her two-year-old son during their frequent shopping trips.

She decided to start Caroline’s Cart, a company, named after her daughter, that specializes in a unique type of shopping cart that incorporates an adult-sized seat within the cart itself. The product quickly began to spread across the country in many major outlets like Food Lion, Giant, Kroger, Target, and Walmart, among others.

The goal for Long began simply with the desire to incorporate her daughter into her regular activities, but it’s quickly caught on with many senior citizens and wheelchair/scooter dependent people that want to be active in their day with their family and/or caretakers.

On the product, the website comments-

“It provides parents and caregivers a viable option to transport a child through a store while grocery shopping, without having the impossible task of having to maneuver a wheelchair and a traditional grocery cart at the same time.”

Many are quickly hailing the product, and Long is hoping that one day, all supermarkets will have their product. We definitely agree!
