The Concept

You may yourself be the parent of small children but even if you are not, we all know someone with small children and what a handful they can be when accompanying their parents on shopping trips. What should be a pleasurable experience can turn into a nightmare when toddlers get bored and irritable.

The Kiddy Cabs concept has been devised to alleviate these situations and to make shopping a fun experience for small children. These specially modified toy cars are hired out to visitors to shopping centres and retail parks for a small hourly rate. Fully fitted with safety belts, a working hooter and a key, they are aimed at children between the ages of 18 months to five years. Toddlers already in pushchairs can exchange these for a Kiddy Cab whilst older children who will not go in a buggy are happy to ride in a Kiddy Cab which they prefer to steer (although effectively they are pushed from behind by the parent by the parent). Parents are happy in the knowledge that their children are safe with them and the children are thrilled to 'drive' around in a Kiddy Cab. The shopping centre benefits because happy parents are happy shoppers and happy
shoppers stay in shopping centres for longer.
