A realistic kids cash register from Learning Resources. The 73-piece set has lots of realistic-looking accessories, including a credit card, 20 pretend bills, and 40 plastic coins. A drawer opens when the machine is turned on, and when you deposit $20 or more the machine makes a cha-ching sound. Activity guide: "Check prices, make change, and add up."

Kids will love the realistic sounds this cash register makes, while the durable plastic parts help kids understand money.
This cash register is an automatic, so the kids have to don their bug-eyed expressions or pretend to be the cashier. But, it's an excellent toy for preschoolers and kindergartners.
Ideal for children ages 4-8, this cash register is relatively inexpensive but lacking in features compared to other brand.
This cash register is pricey, but it's worth every penny. The banks of buttons, lights, and sounds are engaging, and the interaction among all the pieces will keep kids busy for hours.
An easy-to-operate cash register that's fun to use for younger students. But it probably isn't enough to hold the attention of a school-age kid for more than a few minutes.
