What our experts think
The Chip ‘n’ Pin Till by Casdon allows children to use their imagination and engage in role play, acting as the cashier or a shopper, helping them make sense of situations they have experienced. As this can include more than one person, it is also a great way to encourage children to play together. This helps them practice their social skills and being able to share, taking turns to be the shop keeper. The play money also allows them to become familiar with using money, and exercises their counting skills. The children enjoyed playing ‘shop’, and liked adding other toys to their store for other children to buy.
