My daughter got this for her birthday (3 years old). Even though she is not old enough yet to really count the money she has had a blast "ringing things up" on the scanner and paying with the credit card. She also really likes the coin slot. When she puts the money in it tells her what the coin was. She has done this over and over again. She is also having fun going around the house collecting items in her shopping cart and then ringing them up.

I can see this being a toy she will play with for many years. It has math games that seem like they will be fun and educational. Very nice, oh, and my dad observed that the coin slot works with real coins too!

The negatives... The drawer shoots out quickly and the plastic coins tend to slosh out. Also the weighing tray comes off easily. I'm going to put that away till my daughter gets a little older.

Overall- a great toy!

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...

Bought this for my 5 year old. Both he and my 7 year old have enjoyed playing with it. They especially like the silly things it does, like sometimes telling them their credit card has been declined, etc. Seems well constructed and has some good learning games, too.

I got this cash register for my daughter when she started learning about money at school. She is 8 now and still loves playing "store" with her 5 yr. old brother. We've had it well over a year and haven't even had to replace batteries yet. It is durable and fun. The electronic voice is very easy to understand and all the buttons function as they should. I highly recommend this toy.

I normally don't write reviews, but felt I had to with this one. We bought this cash register for my 3 year old nephew a few years ago, and he and my daughter, who is 2 years younger, loved to play with it (incidentally, his is still working). So, we finally bought one for my daughter for her 3rd birthday. The first one came out of the box broken. The Open key did not work, and we couldn't get the drawer open. So, we sent it back to Amazon and they replaced it fairly quickly (it was within the 30 day return window). This was back in November. Well, about a month ago #after 8 months or so of use, the cash register just stopped working. Swapped the batteries out and pressed the reset button (which was not where the book said it would be - next to the scanner - it was on the bottom of the machine), and still nothing. I called Amazon to try to get another one - mind you, my 3rd cash register - and they said it was beyond the 30 day return policy and I would have to call corporate. Well, I have called customer service now 5 times, since mid-August. 1st three times, they said they'd send a message to "Corporate" and someone would call back. Not one call back. The fourth time, I finally got a supervisor involved who then gave me a contact over at Corporate. This contact said she'd look into the contract they have with Amazon and call me back. That was on Sept. 2nd, and still no call back. So, yes this toy is a lot of fun and educational, but only if it works. And, if it breaks, good luck trying to get a replacement after 30 days, unless you have idle time to be wasting making phone calls to Learning Resources. Terrible, terrible customer service. Feel like this is my only recourse at this point - to let people know about my bad experience.Read more ›
