Stylish, Safe, and Sanitary Shopping


Catherine copeland, on July 12th, 2008 at 5:58 pm Said: “I really love the baby turtle design. so very cute. what a great product.”


Now that Calvin’s a little too heavy to carry in a sling while I’m at a grocery store, I like having the option to let him ride in the shopping cart.  However, he also wants to chew the handle that’s been touched by who knows how many people’s germ-laden hands. Meanwhile, he still wiggles and bounces, and he could give himself a good bonk in the noggin if he wasn’t properly secured to the cart.

Melissa at Krafty Kreations by Melissa offered to let me sample an in-stock/pre-made KozyPal Shopping Cart Cover.  There were so many fantastic fabric options, but I opted for the one pictured, called Juicy Jungle. I was so excited to receive this handmade item in the mail, and I immediately showed it to my sister-in-law, Vicky, who is a fantastic seamstress.  Vicky remarked at how well it was constructed and that the size was large enough to fit the monster-sized carts at wholesale food clubs.

Since I’m a traveling mom, we sometimes dine at restaurants with Calvin while on the road.  I’m not too fond of those standard high chairs because they’re usually covered with food grime or baby drool from the previous occupant.  The great thing about the KozyPal shopping cart cover is that it also doubles as a high chair cover.  Talk about hitting two birds with one all-encompassing stone!

Now, Calvin can have a little padding under his bottom and behind his back when sitting in a shopping cart or restaurant high chair.  If he does have the inkling to chew, at least it’ll be on his own toys which attach easily to the loops . . . and I don’t have to worry about the germ-infested handles or sides.  I’m all about letting him build up his immune system naturally, but our apartment floor and shopping cart handles are two different things entirely!

The KozyPal is big enough to fit large carts, and yet, it rolls up neatly to the size of a small duffle for storage.  We keep ours in our vehicle so it’s always there when I’m out and about with Calvin.  For the more adventurous shoppers who have a specific fabric in mind that isn’t an option on the Kozypal website, never fear.  You can mail in your chosen fabric or have an online fabric retailer send your fabric directly to Kozypal for a custom order.
