Hannah’s new favorite toy du jour is the Polly Pocket “Shop Til You Drop” Cash Register. This thing cracks me up. It comes with play paper money, play coin money, and of course a play credit card. You can type in items, use the fake scanner to scan stuff, and there’s even a microphone so you can announce when the store is opening and closing. It’s nuts! What really gets me is when you’re done “scanning” your items and hit enter, Polly says
Your total is $x.xx scan your charge card now
After you swipe the card, Polly says
Charge approved! Thank you for shopping with me!
What a way to get 4 year olds into the habit… Start with some “practice” and they’ll be ready by the time they hit college. Talk about capitalism at its finest.
