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!

It's been many years since we had this out, but if I recall correctly, you can scan anything. The one we had would just make up a price. So, if you scan an apple, it may cost $0.25 or $6.95. It's just random. I would always just comment, "oh, that must be a really good apple" or, "I guess apples are on sale today". I don't know if they've changed the model any over the years though.

We just bought this today and the original poster is correct -- it just makes up amounts when the scanner is depressed.
