There was a thread earlier in the week about kids in trolleys in supermarket. I admit I was rather naughty and my wit got the better of me BUT in my defence there were a few egging me on ;)

Anyhoo I used a SN trolley this week and it was awful!! Like trying to push a bus! The man stared at me when I grabbed it and strapped dd2 in it and we did get some funny looks blush
Dd was facing me so was nice to be able to chat to her and she enjoyed it.

I was going to update other thread but its gone

those trolleys are horrendous to steer - they stay put while you walk round in a circle in an attempt to turn them!

Is this the thread you were looking for lisad

i was on that thread too, OP

DD hates sitting in the trolley 'backwards'

when she was small enough to sit in the seat, i used to push it back to front to stop her screaming - another reason they don't work wink

I agree about the steering. DS will also get out given half a chance. Its just easier to shop without him

They are a godsend for me - ds loves going in one. They are a bit hard to steer but I get a work out as I shop!!!

DH insists they steer like a wheelchair, not a trolley, which is why they are odd to steer.

Must of missed the thread in question very curious though as ds 6 goes in the trolly (takes up the whole thing!) is there issue with doing this then?

never seen a SN trolly i dont think but although ds has sensory issues and i do post in here i suppose i dont think of ds as being special needs as hes not diagnosed with anything hmm
