According to Make TV, you can ask at supermarkets which might have old ones they'd be willing to part with and/or sell. Call around. Target, Rainbow, Cub, Wal-Mart, etc.

Well darus67,

the term "legally" is so strong, I prefer to use acquire covertly. Plus think of all the remaiking experience we would get from diging into the innards of one of those carts that loose their front wheels if they stray too far

I love the idea of an armada of little motorized vehicles, kind of like the cupcakes. I'd just been thinking of creating a motorized version of my art sled.

locking wheels are reasonably easy to unlock, the problem is they tend to be less reliable overall. use your yahoo-style or google-fu to discover folks who have build portable unlock/lock transmitters to have fun in stores.

That is hilarious, I hadn't even thought about that, Is there anything makers can't do?
