Frustrated Mom Invents Shopping Cart That Helps Seniors And Special Needs Kids

Frustrated Mom Invents Shopping Cart That Helps Seniors And Special Needs Kids


It’s something most of our moms have said in the past.

No one knows better than mom.

When we were younger, we never put that much thought behind it.

It couldn’t be true, could it? How wrong we were.

While it’s not true all the time, most of the time it is.

Quite a lot of the handy gadets we see in our day to day lives are brought to use by genius moms who thought of an amazing way to make our lives easier.

It’s quite amazing when you think about it.

Sometimes all it takes is one dedicated mom to think of something, something that will make all our lives easier.

This incredible mom came up with an incredible idea that has gone on to make the lives of others so much easier. 

It’s truly remarkable.

For people caring for those who are in wheelchairs or scooters, you will know how difficult even the simplest of tasks can be.

For example, shopping, it’s almost impossible to struggle to shop and keep them comfortable at the same time.

Drew Ann Long knew this struggle all too well. She was having a difficult time taking her daughter with special needs out with her on errands.

She decided to take matters into her own hands.

She also has a  2-year-old son, so as you can probably imagine maneuvering everything at the same time was a nightmare.

She was inspired to find something that would help her run her errands with ease. She searched for weeks but she discovered that there was nothing available on the market to help her.

Frustrated but not disheartened she ended up designing something on her own that would help her as well as countless people across the country struggling with the same problem.


She designed her own cart called Carolines Cart named after her daughter with special needs.

This amazing but simple invention is sweeping grocery stores around the world — and changing lives.

She founded Parent Solution Group LLC, then began designing the innovative cart model with the help ofTechnibilt.

“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,” they write on their website.

I think this is an incredible invention that will change so many lives.

Not only will it improve someone’s life, but it will also make shopping so much easier for their family.

I hope we start to see more and more trolleys just like this in our supermarkets.

There are so many other people who could benefit from this incredible idea!

What do you think of her invention?
