Waitrose Toy Shopping Trolley
Too Flimsy For Toddlers
We bought this for our almost three year old who absolutely loved it and it worked well for a couple of months. Sadly the prongs at the bottom of the basket have now come away from the back bar leaving sharp little edges with the potential for injury and we have had to take it away. He still enjoys pushing it around without the basket but it really does defeat the purpose. If I hadn't discarded the receipt I would be returning.

I bought this a couple of weeks ago for my petite 18 month old after she pushed the shop floor model around JL for an HOUR! She LOVES it! All her dollies have had a ride in the seat, and we have done lots of 'shopping' around the house!
A great feature is the front wheels are not locked forwards, they swivel, enabling easy turning without tantrums!
I don't really understand the 'falling apart' reviews...I don't find it flimsy and it hasn't come apart at all. The top basket does just hook on at the top and then rests against the bars halfway down - making it incredibly easy to assemble, and the top basket will only come off if it is tipped right up almost vertically at the same time as pulling it back so...? Perhaps older children have worked this out?
The handle/bar is attached to trolley base with two simple nuts and bolts, which come with washers and can be hand tightened no problem.
I think this toy is excellent value, good quality and will be a firm favourite for a long time to come!

not for a 2year old would say 4+
my 2year old loved it but it fell apart straight away cable ties helped but decided to put away until she was the stated age 3...and after a day with my 3year old it went in the bin. i just feel its to flimsy for toddlers but would be great for lil girls and boys who want to role play etc but more 4 5 year olds shame as my lil girl keeps asking where her whatrose trolly is lol x

Loving this Waitrose Trolley for my 4 year old boy! Everyone always comments on it in the street, he gets lots of compliments for it. HIs 6 year old brother is too tall to push it without bending a bit but he loves it too. When we got it delivered, it looked smaller than I thought but I'm very happy quality wise. All the kids we know love this trolley, I'd say it's perfect for kids from 11/2 to 5...

Great unisex solid product!
My son was bought this 2 years ago and still loves playing with it along with ALL his friends who come to play hence I am now buying as a pressie for someone else, it can fall apart ocassionally but easy to put back together and v sturdy to take shopping , much better than the plastic ones around would definitely recommend for either boy or girl :)

Poor quality product for the price.
I was very disappointed with this product.
The wheels didn't rotate properly which made moving almost impossible on carpet and the construction was flimsy, meaning the basket constantly had to be re-attached.

This shopping trolley was really easy to assemble. My two year old granddaughter loved it the moment she opened it on Christmas day and played with it for most of the day. It is sturdy and she finds it easy to push.

Child's shopping trolley
The trolley was very well made, but unfortunately one of the screws was missing when it was being assembled, luckily we where able to find another screw which fitted. Otherwise it was very good.
