Kickstart Monday: FunCart, a Completely New Movie Medium for Kids

The FunCart is an innovative and entertaining way of helping parents keep their kids close while grocery shopping.

Each electronic shopping cart features a interior screen that is linked to our family friendly network that will reach literally thousands of children every day as we roll this program out through the supermarkets of America .”

We started with just a vehicular shaped cart that kept the kids safely strapped in while sitting low to the ground (preventing fall injuries).  Then it evolved into a cart that could tell the children stories… and then we worked out how to put screens into the Carts. “

Each Cart has its own screen, and will feature an educational film that will not only keep kids entertained, but is an opportunity for learning as well. “We plan to lean heavily on our community for ideas and assurances that we are staying true to our goal of entertainment with a positive educational message.”
