  4. 4. Conclusion<br />The life of a cart is lonely.<br />The cart is frequently parked in a location with a little bit of space while the user goes off and shops.<br />The cart is good at entertaining. <br />When the user is uncertain, or bored, the user holds onto the cart and rocks it back and forth<br />The cart is underutilized. <br />Much of the cart’s journey happened while it was empty.<br />The front of the cart is used more for storage of small items (when there aren’t children in the section) than the larger section of the cart.<br />
