How would the shorties of this world get around if it weren't for New Zealand? Think about it: Mountain Buggies, Phil & Ted's, Ents, TV Karts...
The TV Kart is the most popular television-equipped, mini-car/grocery cart in New Zealand, and it is slowly making its way into stores in the US. Two kids can sit in seat-belted comfort and safety, with that low center of gravity that the American Academy of Pediatrics is demanding. The AAP's recommendation, to use carts "that allow children to ride closer to the ground (for example, in a small model car in front of the cart)," why, they might as well spell it with a "K" it's so perfectly--
Oh, what's that? Did someone mention a TV? You say the Karts come equipped with onboard computers and an LCD screen down below, where, for a dollar, parents can let the kids watch Barney, Bob the Builder, or The Wiggles while they shop? And that stores don't even have to pay for the Karts, the maker, Cabco, will provide, maintain, and upgrade them for free, in exchange for that dollar? And that the AAP doesn't approve of television for kids under 2?
Well, unless the AAP is gonna watch the kids while America goes shopping, I have a feeling TV Karts are gonna take over this country, one Kroger at a time.
