Target. As a mom of a preschool age girl, I'd like to think I'm your ideal demographic for those kid shopping carts. I would love it, if you offered those use carts as an incentive to shoppers who buy their preschooler supplies at your stores. Maybe a cartwheel-type of deal, offering to sell us a used kids shopping cart, with $50 in pull-ups or night-time-bed supplies purchase - at an amazing price of $20 (+$50 purchase). Those little metal carts are typically over $40 each, and those little plastic american-toys models are not made to survive more than 1 child's playtime. Although I do not live in the 2 states that piloted this program, our local grocery store has 1 or 2 kids carts in the store. My daughter loves using it, but I also keep her very well supervised when using it. Anyway, I am sure there are enough moms who would love to buy those off of you, and show their shopping loyalty to prove it.
