Casdon Shopping Trolley
Advantages: Well made
Disadvantages: Accesories a bit rubbish
Last year my daughter was brought this for her second birthday by my brother he did not realise Connor already had one that was still going strong but when my daughter opened it she was delighted to have one all for her own.
When I first opened the box I was put off by how many pieces needed to be put together after having a quick look at the instructions I decided to wait for my partner to put it together. Once he was home it took him around 5 minutes to fully assemble the trolley and then we were ready to go.
The main body of the trolley is metal although the handles and wheels are plastic which in all makes for a very sturdy toy which is great around toddlers. The trolley is made up of bright colours green purple and yellow which helps hold little ones attention.
Overall it is a well made toy the trolley is a good size nice and deep to hold the shopping toys, and all round is a practical toy and does what it is needed to do. The handles are nice and wide allowing plenty of room for little one and there are grooves on the handles so that they can get a good hold.
Both my daughter now 3 and son 19 months love pushing this trolley round and they can do so independently very easily the wheels look very shoddy at first but to be honest they have lasted well the trolley is easy to push and the wheels never get stuck so I really shouldn't have judged them straight away.
What we found is because the main bars are made from metal rather than plastic it has lasted a lot longer than we thought it would as it was so cheap for my brother to purchase. It has had daily use by both my son and daughter has been involved in trolley crashes bashed into the wall and all round rough play you would expect from 2 exploring toddlers.
My only downside to this trolley is the accessories that come with it there are a few plastic items and plastic tins but on the whole you receive a sheet off boxes to make up yourself. These have all the brand names on them birds eye, Kellogg's etc and although they are ok at the start once they become used in play they become tatty very easily and it results in me having to remake the boxes every play time in the end we decide to use the plastic play pieces only and all the boxes went in the recycling.
This trolley is recommended from 3 years plus my daughter received it for her second birthday and it was just the right size for her she still uses it now over a year later and there is not any sign of wear on the trolley itself. Some of the play food has become squashed and the tins have had their labels removed but apart from that it is still going strong. It retails at around £10 for what you get I think that is a bargain.
I would recommend a toy play food set maybe the 100 piece one from Chad valley or the elc set just for the added fun and for some fun role play for your little one as the accessories with this one are not much good. We have recently brought her a supermarket set and this goes perfect with it and we have 1 happy girl.
Summary: Good for role play
