(CNN Newsource/KRON) — Target has removed kid-sized shopping carts from its stores after facing backlash on social media, according to CNNMoney.

Target introduced the mini carts in several stores last year.

The rollout test quickly failed.

A Minneapolis blogger, Laura Rina, called the store’s new kiddie carts a “vehicle of mass destruction.”

She started the Moms Against Stupid Tiny Carts movement just last week.

Other shoppers quickly joined in, complaining about bruised ankles and chaotic children.

A Target spokesperson says the carts were removed because of customer complaints.
