The Barbie Shop With Me Cash Register proves once again that Barbie is the coolest. Made durably and in Barb's trademark colors (pink, hot pink, purple, white, etc.), this is a sleek number that can be operated on the floor, bed, or tabletop. It features four realistic ways to buy noodles, yogurt, and toilet paper. Option 1: A "clerk"--either a child or Barbie--scans the bar codes of included price tags. Option 2: You can manually input the price of items. Option 3: Items may be scrolled down the register. Option 4, which is, by the way, your humble writer's favorite: Make up your own prices! Get "Barbie Discounts" when you use your savings debit card. The Barbie register comes with a slew of accessories, including 18 scannable price tags, play money, play credit/debit cards, a keypad, built-in microphone, and a 120-item shopping catalogue offering everything from Barbie-brand jeans to junk food. The machine features a high-tech hand-held scanner and LCD on the register, which shows a customer's subtotal, item number, unit price, and total. You get everything but a receipt. Hmmm.
A built-in microphone allows your child to make store announcements and call for price checks and item voids. This heightens the interaction this toy was built for, since Barbie's voice simulates the real shopping experience enough already. "Cash or charge?" she asks in a perky tone. Tip: If you don't pay up at once with your Barbie greenbacks or American Express-like credit card, you'll be harassed. We writers found ourselves fumbling through our own wallets, trolling for coupons. Barbie prompts the shopper throughout the entire process ("Seventeen dollars and twelve cents... No... seventeen dollars and TWELVE cents."). And parents--there's no volume control. If you just happen to sneak a play while your kid's eating lunch, well... everybody in the house will hear if your card is over the limit. Just kidding. But it's best to use Barbie's credit cards anyway. This kind of hectic shopping experience makes adults really appreciate the online shopping experience, but kids will love it so much they'll forget it's just a pretend play toy. Register comes with all accessories, manufacturer's warranty, a real grocery store coupon for a kid's treat, and the four required AA batteries. --Diane Beall

Educational and Fun!!!, Feb 28, 2023
This toy is very educational and fun. Like going shopping in your own home. It is very high tech and advanced. If I had to recommend a toy for a child this would be my number one choice.
It is educational because it has a built in calculator. Also when you have to give change you have to count out the right amount of money to give back to the customer.I am 11 years old and I stil play with mine. It is the best toy I have ever had. Very amazing!!!!!!! Kids are learning some math skills and are having fun doing it.

Very nice!, Feb 17, 2023
I have had this toy for such a long time and even though I'm 10 I Istill play with it! It even teaches little kids math skills! I don't like what the lady said about her kid not being able to read it because I had it when I was five and I still had fun with it. Still a great toy!

Microphone will drive you crazy, Feb 1, 2023
I bought this register used at Goodwill for my 3 year old niece. She was with me when I bought it and loved it right away, even when the batteries weren't put in. We brought it home and her 15 month old sister adored it too. The only problem about this toy is the microphone. It absolutely drove their parents crazy! That's pretty much the only part of the register the girls played with and she figured out that if she put the microphone in her mouth and blew on it, a VERY loud feedback sound would occur! I didn't think the microphone was real when I bought it or that it would cause such problems. So, it is a good toy, but the microphone can be annoying, which is probably why I found the toy at Goodwill in the first place. :)

Cool!, Sep 25, 2023
I am nine and I have this toy. I don't play with it that much anymore. But I used to love it. It is very educational. This toy would be really fun for kids age 3 to 8.

A toy that talks too much but is also fun, Aug 31, 2023
I find that this cash register talks too much. Whenever I want to press a button, it explains too me the instructions that I already know. If I want to buy something, I like to buy it quickly and then go shopping again. For children that are younger than me, it is a good toy, because they need lots of instructions on how to do things. Overall, besides the talking, it is a really fun toy, because it is like a real cash register. It has the item number button which you can type in an item # and you can get that item right away and pay for it. It also has a total button and Cash or Charge, etc. It keeps children busy and is very fun to play with. Thanks to the manufacturer for giving me a chance to play with this terrific toy.
