Imaginative play in little ones comes naturally from most children and so we have always encouraged role play toys in our home .
Both girls and boy can join in on role play toys and I love that Casdon don't stick to pink or blues in their Chip N Pin Till .
For only £15 it's a great play toy .
The best thing about role play toys like this Chip N Pin Till is that it is realistic and provides stimulation during play , keeping your little one entertained for hours .
iEssential life skills like coordination, memory and mathematics are a great role in this toy and encorperated with fun .
Each Till needs 3 AA batteries as well as another 2 AA batteries for the chip and pin machine which are not included .
You recieve the till , chip and Pin machine , x2 cards to activate the chip N pin as well as pretend money and food as well as a real working chip N pin and calculator till to keep the imagination going .
The Casdon Till is aimed for ages 3 - 8 but I have to be honest in saying I know my youngest son aged 1 woud love this (with coins removed due to being a chokig hazzard ) as well as the older daughter who actually loved playing with this for hours and she is aged 10 years.
All you need is a few little ones to play along with and your little shop can come to life.
I love the extra features such as the rollout receipt from thge till , the working calculator and even more the fact that each card has its own personal pin number for the chip N pin machine .
What makes it even more realistic is that if you put the wrong code in the machine a red light will flash to idicate that it is incorrect and until you place the correct pin number into the machine it will then flash green maning you have money to spend and you can purchase your groceries .
The only problem with this is I dont think the smaller children aged 3 would remember this quite so easily so I have had to write the code on the back of each card so they can see this when playing themselves. Even I forget my pin number sometimes .
There are two cards and both have different pin numbers so make sure you place the right pin with the right card.
Although you get a few carboard and plastic pieces for your pretend purchases , we have bought some role play foods (not shown) to put away for Christmas to add to the play later on and I am sure once thy get started they will be taking ornaments, pictures and remote controls from the sitting rom to put theit baskets . Baskets? would have been a great add on (I must buy one to add to the play scene ).
Like I said my daughter aged 10 years enjoyed playing with th till and I love that it hd a pretend microphone which she enjoyed shouting through to order help to custiomer service .
Passing money to and from my hand seemed her favourte thing too, she even tried to add things up without using the calculator so it encouraged math learning for sure.
Casdon have a variety of fantastic role play toys , not just the till so make sure you take a look at their others.
