Advantages: Great fun, Easy to play with and can be used in many ways.
When you hear the beep think of the fun you could be having on supermarket sweep, gosh I loved that program with Dale Winton lol.
Anyway I got this Early learning centre electronic till a couple years ago at the same time I brought him a little sweet shop toy and I thought they'd go well together.
I can't remember the exact price I paid for this but it is currently £22 in the Early learning centre. It is the same as the one pictured above apart from the colour has changed, it has a microphone and also a chip and pin part to it, how times change as toys have to change too.
When you first get this it comes with some plastic money and paper money notes, some pretend grocery items like small plastic tins, boxes and fruit items. Now I got this to go with the sweet shop but if I was just buying this I think I would have also got a little shopping basket and more pretend food too.
It takes 3AA batteries which go into the base and sealed away with a cover. I don't ever remember changing the batteries in this till whereas other toys often need batteries changing and it still beep beeps and pings when played with.
The fun of this till is that once the on button is pressed you can manually punch in numbers on the calculator style till complete with little screen and it will add up the totals. when you have the total you can then for example put in 5.00 given and push the cash button for the till to open and the screen shows how much change is due. I feel this part of the role playing can really help with a child's maths. You don't have to use just the pretend money, get some real pennies out and make your child earn them by working out sums then checking they got the answers right on the till. Do I do this with my son? ummm sometimes lol make learning fun I say and sometimes rewarding too.
There is also a button that just opens the till up and every time the till opens it makes a ping sound. When the till drawer opens it has several small compartments for keeping the money in. The drawer doesn't come right out which is good and you just push it back in ready for the next shopping to be put through.
At the side of the till but still attached is a conveyor belt, well a long bit of plastic with a button on it but we all know it's a conveyor belt really. When you take a pretend food item and run it across the belt touching the button it goes beep, yes beep just like a shop scanner does, I think it's great fun as do my kids. I'm sure soon toys will be complete with barcodes that are readable and show on screen or maybe they have them out already.
The till is a good sturdy solid build and not light weight but not too heavy that kids can't pick it up but may hurt if dropped on to a foot.
I would totally recommend this and take my advice about getting something to go with it like a basket and more groceries etc. Happy beeping.
Summary: Great fun, good for role play and some hidden learning too.
