Target’s Toy Shopping Cart is one of those hot items you’d love to get your hands on, but it’s almost impossible to find. However, right now, the coveted kids’ toy is in stock for store pickup in select local stores. As of December 2023, I saw that it’s available for store pickup and delivery.
Plus, Target Circle users can find a $10 toy coupon on the app now. Just look for the $10 off $50+ purchases. This offer expires Dec. 16.
These toy shopping carts look just like the real deal you find at Target, and parents are constantly trying to track them down since they’re almost always sold out. If you use your Target RedCard, you can save an additional 5%.
It’s rare to see the cart ever go in stock, you want to grab it while you can. In case you miss the restock, we’ve included an alternative pink shopping cart that Target also sells for the same price below.

Shop the Target Toy Shopping Cart
Grab the red Target Toy shopping cart here, while you can. While it isn’t available for same-day delivery, you can likely find it at your local Target for store pickup or 3 – 5-day shipping. Thirteen stores within 10 miles of where I live carry the cart now. You might have to ask a store employee to grab one for you from the back.
Note that you can’t get two toy shopping carts as these are limited to one per person (because they’re so in demand)!

What’s included with the Target Toy Shopping Cart?
The cart is 18 inches tall — the perfect size for little shoppers — and has a seat that fits most standard-sized baby dolls. For the kids that want to be just like mom and dad, the buggy even has a cupholder that fits the set’s included toy coffee cup. You also get toy fruits and toy Target-brand food products. Overall, there are 12 pieces, counting the cart.
Why is the Target toy shopping cart so popular?
The toy cart has gone viral since the summer of 2021, with well over 11 million views on the tag #targetshoppingcart on TikTok. It’s also trending on Instagram and YouTube with shopping hauls and ASMR videos with hundreds of thousands of views. Besides that, kids love replicating their Target-loving parents with pretend play, and parents just find the whole thing entertaining. That’s most likely why the cart was part of Target’s top toys of 2022.
Where can I buy the Target toy shopping cart besides Target?
This product is, as the name suggests, a Target-exclusive item. To ensure you’re getting the most authentic toy, definitely buy directly from Target. However, if you’re determined to get your hands on a cart ASAP, a few resellers also carry the item.
We don’t recommend you buy from resellers just because we know they tend to jack up prices (up to 150% in some cases). Plus, you don’t have the best chance of tracking your delivery with resellers. But if you desperately want to, make sure to read up on seller reviews before purchasing.
Get the viral shopping cart ($18.88, Amazon) for triple the list price of the original. Currently, it’s on major sale for $19.99 — but a third-party reseller sells it. Make sure to read up on reviews before making your purchase.
Several eBay sellers are offering the cart, both new and used, for prices between $20 – $100.
