Play.com has almost £10 off the Learning Resources Calculator Cash Register and Money. It’s selling for £25.69 instead of £35 and is covered by their free delivery policy.
Children from 3 years old can have endless fun while learning about addition, subtraction and generally about money – assuming they actually work things out and don’t rely on the calculator, that is.
This cash register set looks to be perfect for role play and has won 23 awards for it’s ‘excellence’.
There are conflicting versions of this toy online, with some saying it requires no batteries and others saying it requires one for the ‘ding’ sound. The calculator is solar powered too. Additionally, although Play.com doesn’t actually say this, it looks like the coins might be in Sterling too, and looking at pictures online there are definitely two types of currency.
This should include 30 life-sized play money bills, 40 plastic coins, a pretend credit card and a booklet of suggested activities, but unfortunately Play.com isn’t clear on any of that.
It could be a great way to teach children about money, in a playful way.
