VIDEO: Caroline's Carts available at stores in the Ozarks

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- More people are using special shopping carts for children and adults with special needs.

Springfield's Jillian Walker has a genetic disorder and can't walk for long. So her parents use what is called Caroline's Carts when she goes to the store. They are specially designed carts with larger seating areas that secure the people riding inside.

Jillian's parents say the carts have been a life-saver for the times they take her shopping.

They are available at places like HyVee, Walmart and Target. If they don't have them at your store, ask if they can order one.
