What a fun way to learn about combining coins! The object of this colorful and compact board game is to earn money while winding along a cartoon path. Money is earned by landing on a square labeled with a practical chore, such as setting the table (31 cents), or an entrepreneurial endeavor, such as a lemonade stand (15 cents). In order to collect money, the spinner is used to determine which coins can or cannot be taken from the bank. If the spinner lands on "no nickels" then you collect your change with any coins except for nickels. There's an additional incentive to use critical thinking and coin combining skills. Extra money can be earned if you land on a "Bank Exchange" space and exchange your coins (for example, two nickels for a dime). As you may have suspected, the player with the most money at the end wins. --Lauren BernardSee all Product description

Top customer reviews
1. The spinner adds to the complexity of the game (you are barred from using certain coins) and can be optional for beginning users. It might be a good idea to make it a separate piece, right now it's hard for all players to use being in one corner of the board.)
2. There needs to be a coin value addition chart for beginning users. I printed out my own with 10 pennies, 10 nickels, 10 dimes and 10 quarters in rows to help my kid add up easily and visually. This is also helpful to tally up each player's money in the end and provides visual learning.
Purchased for my first grader who was just learning about money in school but was having trouble with the worksheets. Did some browsing, found this game and it does what it says it will which is to teach coin counting. If you want something for making change, or counting up many dollars, then this is not for you.
I would suggest to get creative with your child, buy a sales slip book, price items around the house and play "store." Kids this age still love make believe.
Very sturdy coins and paper money, not easily ripped or damaged, same with the box, and we've had this for about a year, play it practically every weekend so that says something. The box is pristine. Very simple set up, your kid can set this up after watching you do it it's that easy.
Reason I took off a star:
I'm not enamored with the concept of "the person with the most money wins" because the game is completely by chance as to how much money you end up with. If it had you apply critical thinking skills to get that money then I'd buy into that outcome. So how we end it, is that you have to roll exactly the number of spaces it takes to get to the finish space. This works well for both of us as it takes out the element of 'bizarre random game.' We both exchange all of our money at the end so that we wind up with the most dollars that we can for what we have and the least amount of coins. (Side note: This is how you deal with money in a practical manner, the cashier at the store when your child goes to buy goodies does not want a dollar in nickels and pennies; as parents we've all been there. As adults we know better and should teach this. This game does a fabulous job of giving you that option!)
As an added bonus, if she wins, I give her in real dollars and coins that amount. I'd rather she earn money this way, by learning practical skills, than by being paid for chores, because in the real world no one will pay you to take out the trash unless it's in your job description. It's always expected that we clean up after ourselves by showing respect for ourselves, the people around us, and our living, working, and playing spaces. So far, so good!
Would I buy this again:
Would not hesitate for a second in purchasing this item if what you need is a coin counting game. I only wish her teachers had this in their classrooms, would be very helpful for the students.
She's in 2nd grade now and still likes this game. This year as mentioned now that she can count coins we've started to play store, learning to actually make change using the coins from this game and other paper money, which is advanced but is helping; every time she makes change the correct way we record the 2 amounts and she gets to keep the difference. No one wants to get screwed by the cashier so I'll gladly 'pay' her to learn this skill. Of course she has to find the difference to get the money :-))
Definitely a great product, thank you Learning Resources!
