Ring up the fun with the Teaching Cash Register! A perfect addition to any pretend store, this talking cash register helps teach basic math and money skills through creative play. Filled with engaging activities and a drawer stashed with life-size (make-believe) cash, the Teaching Cash Register helps kids make sense of currency with a coin reader that identifies both real and plastic coins. Other features include a generous LCD screen that shows transaction values in large, easy-to-read numbers, a working scale, and a scanner for pretend coupons and credit cards. Four interactive learning games take kids through multiple levels of play, increasing in difficulty as players advance their math skill levels. Large buttons help little fingers total up the orders, while lights and sounds capture the imagination. Winner of numerous awards, including an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award, the interactive Teaching Cash Register develops logic, reasoning, and coin recognition skills, and helps animate lessons about addition, subtraction, counting money, making change, and decimal usage. Measuring approximately 14 by 9-3/4 by 9 inches, the Teaching Cash Register requires 3 C batteries (not included) to power its playful "ka-ching!" --Heather Lyndon

RESET – If the register begins to behave erratically, press the RESET button located just above the battery compartment on the bottom of the unit. Use the tip of a paperclip or pen to depress the button. If this doesn’t solve the problem, please refer to the USE AND CARE section of this manual.

4Best register by far!
By Victoria
I looked at a lot of cash registers and read a lot of reviews...not just on amazon. This one had the highest rating on amazon but not on other toy sights. So I was taking a gamble. I was looking for something more on the realistic side, and I didn't want the food because we already had that. I wanted a scanner, cash drawer, and also wanted a real calculator. (This one has all and more) Many many registers came with that and more. Some I looked at had a belt, to be honest..the belt is so small it's pointless. Because of that I vetoed the belt option. Some had micro phones...last thing I needed was another way to make it more loud in my house...anyways, after looking I settled on this one. After getting it, it's so much more then a register! It teachers the names of the coins...does money math and has options to do practice activities. I bought it for my soon to be three year old...she could care less about that, but I think it's great that this toy can grow with her and even give her a challenge. It comes with money, plastic coupon card and plastic debit card. She plays with it for hours. She's even learned the names of the coins just from playing with it!

5Surprisingly advanced & my toddler LOVES it
By Team Zoll
My 3yo son has been on a "grocery store" imaginary place kick lately, and we had everything to act it out: food, shopping cart, and even his play kitchen. We figured he should probably have an actual cash register instead of the kitchen tool he was using as a "price scanner."

This. Register. Is. AWESOME. It has both an imaginary play mode to do all the basic functions you would expect. There are also learning games, too: Counting, identifying coins, and some others.

Both the included credit card and discount coupon cards are pretty cool, too. All of the sounds are very realistic - all that's missing is a "Please place your items in the bagging area" line.

We often joke that this register must be from Whole Foods, since it randomizes prices - and they always seem to be ridiculously high! Definitely worth the price: high quality with lots of playtime and learning options.

2Beware - Design Flaw and only 30-DAY WARRANTY!
By Jeremy K.
Having had this item for about a year I would have rated it 5-stars until last weekend when it broke. My 3 1/2 year old has thoroughly enjoyed it and the functionality of the toy is great for this age. However, it recently stopped working and simply said 'DRAWER OPEN' no matter what we tried to do. After trying to reset the register (didn't work) I researched the manufacturer's warranty and learned it was only 30-days. 30 days? Seriously? Pathetic... Being fairly handy I decided to tear it apart and try to fix it. What I found was a small contact switch that was broken on the back of the cash drawer. This switch makes contact and closes to make a connection when the drawer is closed. The problem is this switch was built using two less than paper thin pieces of metal and it simply won't stand up to the repeated opening/closing that any child will surely impose upon the unit.

I see two serious design flaws here. First, this thin metal switch (designed to flex every time the drawer is opened/closed) is easily the most 'exercised' piece on the machine and it was clearly under-engineered for the job. Second, when this piece breaks (inevitable in my opinion) the register doesn't simply quit 'dinging' when the drawer is opened/closed it completely locks up, displays 'Drawer Open' and becomes non-functional. This is inexcusable and a severe design flaw.

To fix this register, I ended up building my own contact switch using some leftover electronic parts/wires so that when the drawer is closed it will complete the circuit and re-enable the register's operating function. My kid was happy, my Saturday morning was wasted (almost two hours), and this review is the resulting outcome.

This design flaw notwithstanding I really like this product. However, anything that doesn't last can only be so good...
