Pretend play is probably the most common form of a child's play. Children usually role play based on their experience and what they see adults do. When they reach a certain age they begin to copy or imitate the actions of their parents and kids pretend to be someone else. From pretending to be dad driving the family car or mum doing her weekly run at the grocery store, children's pretend play has infinite possibilities.
Any toy or playset that allows your kids to pretend as someone else and engage in exciting and fun role-playing is something you should consider buying. Don't be surprised when your child asks you to buy her a toy trolley because she wants to be like mum or dad buying groceries for the family, combine it with some play food for an ideal play shopping experience.
Social Skills Improved with Trolley Play
Your child could invite her friends over and they could set up a farmer's market or a kids supermarket, with play food combinations like the groceries or chilled sets from bigjigs. This sort of communication play really helps develop a child's social skills and are best for age 3 years plus. They can fill their basket with at least one item they can find in their local stores.

Whilst you might think a shopping trolley is for younger children play can develop into much more advanced educational learning as they get older.
