As a family that has children with special and additional needs, we love toys that focus on role play and learning. All children learn through play and this is especially important if your child has additional needs. The Casdon Supermarket till is the ideal toy to add to our collection of educational toys.
The Casdon Supermarket till can be purchased from Argos, ToysRus, Boots and Amazon and retails at £15.00. The till requires 2 batteries to power the touch-sensitive screen, the buttons can be used as a calculator and there is a microphone! The scanner doesn't make any noise but has a working trigger to scan your items. The till open and closes and contains notes and coins. There is also a scale for weighing your fruit on and a fab chip and pin machine for their own credit card.
The supermarket till also comes with a great selection of branded food to further your child's play options. The working calculator means you can really bring a new dimension of play to your child and introduce some maths. You can tell them how much the items cost and they can add it up on the working calculator.
I was interested in seeing how Miss S would respond to this toy, she loves to go to the shops and loves coins. She attends a specialist school and I know she has been using coins to help with maths and as predicted she went straight for the coins and started counting them.
She also enjoyed playing with the pretend food items and even used the scanner to scan her food. It was great to see her using some copied play scenarios and is great for her development. She really struggles with play, so it was lovely to see her actually doing it. The supermarket till is well-made from moulded plastic and all the pieces apart from the food and coins are attached. I would definitely recommend it for some imaginative play opportunities and for just £15 it's a great price.
