Worked only one day
I was hesitant to buy this cash register because of the negative reviews, but decided to give it a try. It was a mistake. The cash register worked for one day, then began to malfunction. The cash register began to constantly beep and chirp and the lights flickered. When a button was pressed, it would start to talk, but then become garbled and start the beeping and flickering. The batteries were brand new and I tried using the reset button, but it didn't make a difference. It is now packaged back up to be returned. I've purchased many toys by this brand before and have not been disappointed, but I guess I'll try to find a different brand cash register.

So far we love this cash register. We play hours of grocery store!
I gave it only 4 stars because our scale won't stay on and because I strongly dislike toys that continuously remind the kid to play with it. This toy says "let's play" over and over when left untouched for a period of time.
Over all, I recommend this cash register to any one in the market. It will definitely grow with my children. We do basic things in it now like scanning and pressing numbers but once they are older it's a great tool to encourage math and money management & the games will help them learn.

Beware - 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...
