how old is he? DD did it for about the age of 2, i think it was the lights and noise

He is two but has done this for nearly a year now and dont know why so when it comes to shopping I have to grin and bare it.

When mine was 2ish she used to do that, in the end i went armed with boxes of rasins and carrot sticks bread sticks etc.... hope that helps it worked 4 me.

Raisins are a good one! If you buy the small individual boxes it takes them ages to get them all out as they get stuck in the bottom. Mine have always done it in marks and spencers,the last time some old lady told me no children like M&S
