Have you got a little princess, or even a prince who loves Disney? For those looking for a last minute Christmas gift bound to light up the faces of your little ones then the Disney princess royal boutique cash register* is a perfect choice.
Imaginative play is so important to our children’s development and this lovely toy doesn’t disappoint. Rose has played with the cash register non-stop since it arrived last week. It has a real working scanner that beeps when you scan your items and a functioning cash register drawer. It also has a credit card swipe and pretend notes and coins. 3 AAA batteries are included.
We had a lovely afternoon on Friday collecting items from around the house, including a box of cat food, some grapes and even a few baubles from the Christmas tree! Rose picked up each item and asked me if I’d like to buy it before scanning it (very seriously may I add!) and handing it to me. She even withheld sales a couple of times because I didn’t have enough money!
I really enjoy games that involve using imagination and it’s quite amazing when you realise how much kids pick up from everyday life and then apply that knowledge to playtime. She knew exactly what to do with the scanner and giggled with delight each time the cash drawer pinged open. She also took great pleasure in locking her takings away with the key once she had finished her game, that’s my girl!
When the microphone button is pressed the cash register announces things like ‘will the owner of a lost slipper please report to customer service’ and ‘glitter spill on aisle 8!’ in the familiar Disney voice. It also switches off automatically after a period of inactive time so great for saving battery power. The cash register is a working calculator a great feature for developing numeracy skills.
It’s a really cute and well-made toy and would be sure to impress this Christmas.
