Toy Till

Cash registers were invented in the1880s to prevent shop assistants making mistakes with customers' change. This toy till is mechanically operated, not electronically and it uses pounds, shillings and pence. It was made before the introduction of decimal currency in 1971.

Children often play with toys that replicate adult work and life.

Toy tills like these were designed to be educational, helping children to develop their numeracy skills.
