I was concerned because some of the reviews I read mentioned a problem with a "CB Open" -- and then nothing works on the cash register. Why pay for a register with all the extra's that make it realistic AND have learning games if it won't work? But I took a chance! We've only been using it for one week, but, honestly, the CB Open thing started from the first time we turned it on! Once I realized that CB was coin bank and not cash box (ie: drawer) -- I showed my 6 year old developmentally delayed son that you have to push that yellow 'door' where the coins go until it clicks - and then the register works. Now, no problem! He's already - without any urging from me - very interested in getting the coins in - and even playing the game and getting the correct coin in! He's also getting more and more into pretend/imaginative play and I am looking forward to lots of shopping trips in my future, buying things from his stores! He LOVES that it has a credit card and a coupon card -- so REAL, just like when we go to the grocery store!
This is a great hand-eye coordination tool but I bought it for too young of a child. I should have waited a while to get it so I did put it away for a bit.
I bought this for my son to use with his grocery stand. It has a button you can slide the items over and prices will come up, lots of educational games you can play, a calculator, and a coupon and credit card you can slide in the card reader. The money that's comes with it seems durable enough. It's a great quality item compared to other flimsy registers I was looking at. The only slight issue we've had is that when you push the button to open the drawer it pops open with such force the money comes flying out. I would still buy this over other like products.
