Buggy whips are not just for Supermarkets.

Kids get to an age when you just not really sure where to place them when you go shopping. We’ve all been there. They are either too big to go in the trolley seat now and will get annoyed having to look at you and go backwards for however long you have to be shopping. There is also the problem of getting them out of the trolley seat again you have done the shopping and you are back at the car. However there is a solution and they can be seen in many shops and malls. The first is an incorporated fun car into a trolley behind. The child seats in a car style interior that features a steering wheel and certain types of basic telemetry. The child has no control over the direct or speed of the trolley, you are still in charge of that but the impression given to the child is that they are. This simple illusion of direction can prove to be enough to maintain the child’s attention whilst you are free to browse and shop without any interruptions or impunity.

The other option that many supermarkets employ is to get the children involved in the whole process as opposed to distracting them from it. They do this be providing a child size trolley that any 3 to 8 year old can ably manage. This does create a problem, whilst it is educational in some ways to get the child to appreciate what is involved in shopping the chance that a child may lose control of the trolley and cannon into someone’s legs taking them out at the knee and knocking them to the floor in the process. In this litigious age of where there’s blame there’s a claim supermarkets can’t take that chance as they will be held ultimately responsible for giving the child the green light to go ahead. This is when Buggy whips are used such as the ones available from wisuk.co.uk/buggy-whip. They stand up to the height of and average adult and are garish and easier seen. The argument from the supermarket is that you should see it coming and be aware that evasive action might be needed.

This is but one use for the buggy whip and while it is useful it also performs other functions in the world do professional motor racing especially in dune and motocross racing as it again acts as an identifier for the vehicles involved. It also serves as an indicator for large scale construction vehicles.
