Over the summer my kiddos obtained two toys that have become their "go to play" , a toy kitchen that I picked up at a yard sale for $20 and the New Sprouts Market Deluxe Play Set from Learning Resources. You might remember the review of this item that I did a few months back, you can read it here. Between these two toys, all 3 of my children can be found engaging in the most imaginative play. So I was really excited to add another element to this pretend world of theirs.
We were sent the New Sprouts Ring It Up Cash Register and both of my boys think it is one the coolest items to ever enter our home.
The New Sprouts Register, is packed full of fun. It comes with 5 fun & brightly colored coins so your little one's can purchase their items. The coins fit in the top slot and when the orange side knob is turned they slide out the side or into the drawer.
My boys love the realistic features of the cash register, and I enjoy the fact that it is helping my stubborn 2 1/2 year old learn his numbers and colors. "3 yellow bananas" on the New Sprouts Ring It Up, is a lot more fun than flashcards, or any other way I can figure out how to teach him. The chunky buttons are perfect for little hands and the knob is very easy to turn , making this a great toy for both boys despite their 3 year age difference. Since they both really enjoy this toy and the New Sprouts Market Deluxe, they are excellent at taking turns playing "customer & cashier".
If I had any complaints at all about the Ring it Up toy, it would be that the coins somehow get ate by the register. After about a week or so of play all the coins ended up stuck inside. Hubs found them easy to get out by taking off the back, and honestly our boys don't care if they have them or not. I think maybe as they get older they will be more into the $$ , but right now they LOVE pushing the buttons and making the drawer open. So, this aspect wasn't a huge disappointment to us. We give the New Sprouts Ring it Up, 4 out of 5 stars.
