Casdon Pick & Mix Sweet Shop
Advantages: Great fun for role playing
Disadvantages: Too many sweets
Ok firstly I have to admit that I had one of these when I was little so wanted one for my son so he too could enjoy it whilst bringing back fun memories for me.
Casdon pick & mix shop can be purchased for £9.99 at Argos or from Tesco direct at same price. The above picture is exactly as it is apart from few colour changes. It comes with a yellow base with 5 sections for placing sweets and two spaces for placing the jars on which are made from plastic not glass. The scales slot into place easily and then place the weighing tray on it. Then two side pieces are easily attached which has more space for sweets and each has two hole to hold lollies in.
Operating instructions leaflet came with it, yes I had to laugh as it isn't hard to assemble. It states assorted bags of sweets but actually it was just one large bag of sugary covered sweets. sugar crumbs all over the place as soon as my son opened it.
Once the shop is assembled you get to weigh and buy sweets using the included plastic money and notes. I do like the plastic jars they look cute with jelly bears in them. Even a plastic scoop is included.
There is a money draw in the unit but I actually got my so a Early learning centre till to go with this shop, possible future review.
Now I loved being the buyer of sweets for a little while but soon got bored lol. My son however kept playing until I had to take away what sweets were left. I think this is a great toy and when he has friends round I can buy a few sweets for them to play with.
I like the nice vibrant colours of this toy too.
I only wish that with the shop came some small sweet bags too. Once the big bag was split open it was quite messy. I may try to make some small bags actually to add to the fun.
This is a great role playing toy and may even help with understanding money and the values.
I won't always use sweets for my son to play with as he'll be just as happy to use raisins or fruit portions instead.
Summary: Love this toy when I was a kid and still do
