A mom from Alabama created invented a shopping cart especially to accommodate kids with disabilities and the best news, Target is adding them to their stores nationwide.

Drew Ann Long, the inventor, created this card for her daughter Caroline who has Rett syndrome.  Rett syndrome is a nervous system disorder.  After learning all the challenges Drew was having while trying to maneuver her daughters wheelchair and her shopping cart, she designed a special seat that would accommodate both her daughter and groceries.

The cart can be found in hundreds of other stores such as Kroger, Wegmans and Publix both nationwide and internationally.

According to a company statement found on al.com, Target states:

“Caroline’s Cart can be a game-changer for families, and we’re excited to offer this for our guests across the country,” Juan Galarraga, senior vice president, Store Operations, for the company, said. “Target is always looking for new ways to make guests feel welcome in our stores and give them a more comfortable shopping experience. We’re always listening to both our guests and team members and making changes based their feedback.”
