Bring toddlers’ toy shopping carts on actual shopping excursions

Ah, Target with a toddler. Those were the days. If only I had had Jennifer's ingenuity back when my kids were that age:

In order to keep my 2 1/2 yr old and 4 yr old occupied at the grocery store or at Target/Walmart, I will bring along their toy shopping carts, so that they can "shop" with me.  I let them carry a few items and then have them put the items on the checkout counter.  They love it!
