What It Is
Over the years, eKids has been a leader in electronic roleplay toys, and it's taken one of its classics and added an app component with the Barbie Cash Register with App. The basic cash register has voice and sounds. Kids can pretend to play store, a classic playtime activity, with the keypad and the microphone. Add the app, however, and you open up a fun, interactive play experience with different stores, different ways to shop, and even a barcode scanner. There's lots of fun interaction and shopping play, and you can customize your shop as you earn more points from shopping. In addition to the entertaining interaction, the app also teaches subtle lessons in the value of money and basic addition.
Why It’s Fun
One of the things that eKids has really done right is that they put excellent and age-appropriate content into the app that doesn't overwhelm the basic toy or the play pattern. Even though the built-in game is fairly simplistic, it's perfect for kids 4 and up as it familiarizes them with numbers, decimals, and a numeric keypad. Fortunately, all that learning is in the background because the real fun is playing store and pretending to buy stuff.
Who It’s For
The Barbie Cash Register with App is for ages 4 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
