    This Learning Resources Cash Register has been on my Grandsons mind since he saw it and played with it at a toy store last year.

    It made a great gift for his 5th birthday.
    He loves the way the toy talks to him as he scans in the shoppers groceries and weighs the produce. The register actually tells him the value of the coins as he adds them. This is a great teaching toy that I think will 'grow' with him as he gets older.

    Learning Resources actually has 2 different toy cash registers, the other one is solar powered and this one takes 3 C batteries. We debated over which one to buy and decided on this one based on comments from other reviewers, and the fact that he actually saw and played with this particular model -- and loved it. You can easily tell the 2 registers apart by looking for the yellow produce scale on the top right hand side of the register -- that's the one we purchased.

    The toy appears to be a sturdy design and 'kid-friendly'. If the kids don't push the shut-off button, the register automatically shuts itself off after several minutes of non-use to help save battery life.

    I think the toy comes with an ample supply of coins and bills, although I'm sure we will need to purchase a replacement pack of money sometime in the future, this toy gets played with often!!

      Comments about Learning Resources Teaching Cash Register:

      I bought this for my son to use with his grocery stand. It has a button you can slide the items over and prices will come up, lots of educational games you can play, a calculator, and a coupon and credit card you can slide in the card reader. The money that's comes with it seems durable enough. It's a great quality item compared to other flimsy registers I was looking at. The only slight issue we've had is that when you push the button to open the drawer it pops open with such force the money comes flying out. I would still buy this over other like products.

          This was a Christmas gift for my 2 and 5 year old Grandchildren, who were thrilled to add it to their play kitchen area. It has many great features like a coin teaching program, a scanner that audibly gives an item's price, realistic plastic coins and dollar bills, and a user friendly design. I will definitely be recommending this to my friends for their Grandkids!!

          A constant electronic problem requires pressing the yellow coin bank cover until hearing a click. This is frustrating for children playing with it. When it happens the display shows "CB Open" and child is not able to do any electronic math until it is reset. We gave this as a gift to our grandsons and it is disappointing that it does not work correctly.

            Comments about Learning Resources Teaching Cash Register:

            I was concerned because some of the reviews I read mentioned a problem with a "CB Open" -- and then nothing works on the cash register. Why pay for a register with all the extra's that make it realistic AND have learning games if it won't work? But I took a chance! We've only been using it for one week, but, honestly, the CB Open thing started from the first time we turned it on! Once I realized that CB was coin bank and not cash box (ie: drawer) -- I showed my 6 year old developmentally delayed son that you have to push that yellow 'door' where the coins go until it clicks - and then the register works. Now, no problem!

            He's already - without any urging from me - very interested in getting the coins in - and even playing the game and getting the correct coin in!

            He's also getting more and more into pretend/imaginative play and I am looking forward to lots of shopping trips in my future, buying things from his stores!

            He LOVES that it has a credit card and a coupon card -- so REAL, just like when we go to the grocery store!

              Comments about Learning Resources Teaching Cash Register:

              We bought this cash register for our 5-year old son. We looked at other toy registers and this one seemed to have the most functions, including a scanner, credit card swiper, and scale. I admit I was apprehensive about the price at first. However, after our son opened it, the value was clear. The register is well constructed, easy to use, and offers tremendous value. Our son got some other fun toys this year, but this one has captivated his attention. He and his 2-year old brother battle over who gets the register. Highly recommend.

              I purchased this for my soon to be 5 yr old daughter for christmas last year and she loves it! Her and her cousin play with it often. Unfortunately, a few days ago it broke same error as all the other negative reviews CB open. Although the reviews say not to bother troubleshooting I did. NO LUCK ! Unfortunately the warranty is unknown at this time. However, I have a ticket open with customer service if they warrant it for a year or more and/or replace it then I would recommend it, but at this time if after less than a year it's garbage then I am going to say don't buy. I will update my review if I get a positive response from customer service. After great customer service is what sells.

                I have this cash register in my classroom and my students love it! They have dropped it multiple times and it still is working! The reset button is my friend. Also, I just called because I needed more credit card pieces since we lost them and they are sending me some! Great product.
