When Kmart’s original beach trolley hit the market in 2017, shoppers flocked to the store to buy the $49 item.
At the time, it was described by those as being perfect for lugging towels, toys, and everything else a family needs for a nice day at the beach.
‘It’s the best $49 I’ve ever spent,’ mum Kristy Austin told Daily Mail Australia.

‘We use it for everything from the farmers market to the beach to bringing the washing in from the line.’
Fellow mum Carly Allkin also found the trolley ideal for her family.
‘The beach trolley is fabulous,’ she said. ‘Very sturdy and great for family days out.’
Many mums have discovered that the trolley is a perfect place to put their tots down for a nap
As well as being used as a way to carry essential items for a family day out, some said they’d added extras to convert the trolley to a handy sleeping space.
Mum-of-four Lynn Cleave said she discovered with the addition of a few towels, the trolley could into a sand-free sleeping nook for a tired five-month old.
‘My husband came up with the genius idea to empty the beach cart, pad it with a couple of towels and make a handy little cot for him to lay in while he napped,’ she told Kidspot.
