The Happy Handle Bar Shopping Cart Cover

I don't know about you but I feel like this past couple of months have been germ city.  Every time I visit the grocery store with my little ones, I use those sanitizing wipes they offer to clean the handle bars. Sometimes they don't offer the wipes. Babies touch the carts and put their hands in their mouth.  Ech.  

A study found that 64 percent of people believed the public restroom doorknob had more germs than an ATM. They were wrong. Likewise, people were surprised to learn that outdoor portable restrooms are actually cleaner than picnic tables, shopping cart handles, escalator handles, and playground equipment.  

Okay... that's gross.  Sooooo gross.  I did NOT know that until I did an online research.  I was excited that The Happy Handle Cart sent me this product to try.

I do love how I can clip Caleb's toys right in front of him so he CAN'T keep tossing his toys overboard.  I just quit bringing toys to keep him happy because I was tired of bending over a zillion times to retrieve them off the floor.  

Okay, so here is what I liked.
1. Super easy clip on.  At first when I saw the package I wondered if I'd be able to figure out how to put it on.  The first time I pulled it out I had it on he handle bar in less than 10 seconds. Really easy.

2. Keep germs away.  I hate, hate, hate my family getting sick all the time from public places. Babies don't understand this and it just helps to have something like this to protect them.  

3. Easy to fold and put away. (See bottom picture).  Easily fit in my diaper bag with room to spare.

4. I didn't even know it was washable but just found out it is!  (Thank you, thank you!)

5. The two front pockets can hold whatever you like.  Well, I lose everything so I put my keys in one of the pockets and his binky that he likes to toss in the other pocket.  When I'm getting back to my van, often my keys are buried down in my purse and I'm fishing for them.  This solves that problem.

6. Has spots for toys to clip on and straps that hold sippy cups or bottles. Yay!

What I didn't like

1. The Fry's shopping cart handles are pretty small so the handle kept slipping for me.  It wasn't a major annoyance but I like to have a firm grip when I'm pushing the cart.  However, when I tested this cart cover on Target's shopping cart, it snapped on perfectly and was firm.  In fact, it gave even more space between the bar and the baby to fit bigger sippy cups.  So it'll depend on the store's cart on how well it fits. Still, it does stay on even if you encounter a cart that has a skinny handle.  

There you have it. More positives than negatives.  I really do like it and it's for keeps.
