They are usually appropriate for kids ages 3-10 and modern toy cash registers feature an LCD screen that displays the tally, a math game and a talking scanner that generates prices and fun messages. Children usually find them very amusing and the more they play, the more they improve their math skills.

is a classic pretend play toy that introduces your child to currency, addition and subtraction. Your child practices addition and subtraction all while having tons of fun. This toy money set can be played by children 3 years old and up, and usually features pretend bills and coins kept in a wooden cash drawer. Children use their imagination in order to create new money games such as play grocery store. So the toy also increases your kid's creativity.

can be played by the whole family and is suited for children aged 6 years and up. Children improve their math skills all while having fun. The game consists in cards which represent shopping carts, a dice and a board. Children roll the dice, go shopping with play money, pay, calculate the change, and try to fill their shopping carts faster than other players. It is one of the fun educational kids games that we highly recommend and that can help your kid improve his math skills in no time(addition and subtraction).
Monopoly (and Monopoly Junior)
