Imitation and copying through role play is a valuable method of learning for your children. As our daughter E was brought up with having shop keepers as Grandparents, it was inevitable that she’d want for her very own shopping trolley, stock, shelves and of course – a till!
Whilst E has spent years playing with a rather dated ELC till, we were recently sent a rather fabulous update – the Peppa Pig Cash Register!
The Peppa Pig Cash Register
This fabulously funky till features all the accessories any little one requires for playing shop keeper. Children are able to scan their items and listen for the ‘beep’, they can then calculate the cost of their shopping with the functioning calculator and pay their debt by using either ‘Peppa pounds’ or the bank card via a contactless beep function.
This interactive and realistic shopping role play toy is suitable for children aged three years and over. Requiring two AAA batteries (which are actually included!), this till is the ideal gift for any aspiring shop keeper.
This perfect ‘Peppa play toy’ features ‘Peppa’ characters images that fans will instantly recognise and adore. The Peppa Cash Register includes:
- 1 x Peppa Pig Cash Register (with 2 x AAA batteries included)
- 1 x Tin of Sweetcorn
- 1 x Tin of Tomatoes
- 1 x Tin of Peas
- 1 x Milk Carton
- 1 x Cereal Box
- 1 x Washing Powder Box
- 10 x Peppa Coins
- 6 x Peppa Notes/ Cash
- 1 x Peppa Contactless Bank Card
Super Shop Play
E was delighted with the Peppa Pig Cash Register, what better toy could she ask for than something which combines her love for both shopping and Peppa?! She has spent the past week scanning, beeping and cashing up endless amounts of boxes and tins all whilst proudly playing ‘Shop Keeper’.
Whilst I adore the design (as does our daughter) I cannot help to wonder whether ‘Miss Rabbit’ (who famously plays the role of shop keeper along with many, many other roles and jobs in the show) should be featured on the till somehow? Either that or Mr Fox who is yet another well-known shop owner come wheeler dealer that could sell ice to the eskimos.
Anyhow, that’s besides the point as our five- year old daughter E seems to adore her Peppa Pig Cash Register so obviously the design is just fine as it is! E busies herself with playing the role of both shop keeper and customer for hours on end. Although I’m pretty sure that her ‘shop’ is overcharging, I’m happy to see that E is developing a keen eye for business from an early age.
Purchasing & Pricing Information
I would certainly recommend this toy to family, friends and readers as both E and I have spent hours of fun together playing shop keepers. Peppa fans will adore the Peppa Pig Cash Register, it is the ideal toy to aid the development of imaginative play, role play, social interaction and numerical skills.
