Rated 4 out of 5Â by jlo917m Realistic money
My 5 year old loves playing with this set. She doesn't fully understand the concept of the value of money yet, but she loves to play store and count out coins and "dollars". I appreciate that the bills and coins are realistic in color and size. My one complaint about this toy (and many other Melissa and Doug toys) is that there is no lid for the box. I would like to be able to keep the coins and bills in the box it came in since it's set up like a register, but putting this away without packaging it all up is an accident waiting to happen. I wish M&D would rethink this issue they have with so many of their toys.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Homeschool Mom Great for play, Wish the box had a lid
The money and the box are both nice. It is cleaner than handling real money with kids. The box is great for sorting the money. I wish it had a slide on lid like some of the other Melissa & Doug products with small pieces for easy storing. We store our money in a cash box instead, as recommended by other homeschool teachers.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mommabear2jdnmt My daughter loves this
My daughter has been wanting this item for a long time and Santa got it for her this year. Santa also got her the felt play food - sandwich set and she quickly set up a "Sandwich Shop" using BOTH items. The only thing that I as a parent would like to see is a COVER. Having the great wooden drawer with all the compartments is so nice and having a plastic cover would make it even better to keep all the money inside.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ShawnNBruce Very nice
Great play money set. We have had several sets of play money over the years, but this is by far the best quality. The bills are the size of real money and they are a nice heavy paper. The coins are also the actual size of real coins and they are a nice heavy plastic. My daughter has a real cash register from an old shop that she plays with, and the money fits perfectly in the money tray.
