Go-cart. n.s. [go and cart.] A machine in which children are inclosed to teach them to walk, and which they push forward without danger of falling.

            Young children, who are try'd in
Go-carts, to keep their steps from sliding,
When members knit, and legs grow stronger,
Make use of such machine no longer.
Prior.
