(Learning Resources $39.99)
Can't believe it's 25 year since this clever working calculator/cash register entered the toy market. It remains a clever way to combine math skills with pretend play! We still love the gender free original red or blue version of this Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award Winner. When kids play store with this smart new register they learn to use a solar powered calculator, make change, use coupons and charge cards. The screen tallies and kids press enter to self-correct. This comes with 40 plastic coins and 30 play bills, a handy note pad, and credit card. It has big buttons for small fingers and a bell rings when the drawer opens. Marked for 3 & up, this is really a math tool for early school years. ACTIVITY: Play a swapping game: trade two nickels for one dime. What other coins will you trade for another dime? Check out answers in the coin bank that talks on this toy. Play money or real work equally well.
Ages: Preschoolers, Early School
