This best-selling shopping game will help children learn about social skills as well as handling money and giving change.The game will teach them to distinguish between different coins, and to work out the value of their money. Every player takes on the role of both shopper and shopkeeper, so it also encourages role playing and polite conversation. Each player is given the same amount of plastic money, including 50p, 20p and 10p coins. Players move around the 'village' by rolling the die. Each time a player passes the Bank, they collect another 20p. The first player starts by picking a card from the table - this will determine what item the player must buy first, and therefore which shop they will need to aim for. Visit the different shops on the jigged playing board - the Mini Market, the bakery, the newsagent or the greengrocer - to buy familiar items from the other shopkeepers. Don't forget to ask politely. Players learn to work out the correct coins to use for payment, and have to work out how to give the correct change as well. An educational guide on the box shows how the game is suited to your child's education. A bright, colourful and fun shopping game, suitable for 2 to 4 players aged from 5 to 9 years.
Help children learn about handling money and giving change by playing this fun shopping game. Go round the board from shop to shop using plastic money to buy lots of different items.

The rules are simple to pick up, the board is colourful and encourages them to get involved, and it brings through some good role play for shopkeepers! Can't really think of any minuses!
All in all - very good value, and highly recommended.
One of the most fun aspects of the game is the roleplay element; when the time comes to buy something, the shopkeeper and customer have to talk to each other politely and you can experiment with different voices and accents for the shopkeeper which adds to the fun.
As other reviewers have mentioned, it is quite a long game and also it takes a few minutes to set up. But it's easy to make the game quicker by declaring in advance that the first person to buy (eg) 4 items will be the winner, instead of waiting until someone has bought 6 items.
The game is most fun with 4 players and wouldn't be so much fun with just 2 players.
If your children enjoy the Orchard Toys 'Shopping List' game, this is the ideal next step from age 3 1/2 up.
Like all Orchard games (we've got plenty!) it's simple, well-thought-out and well-made, with nice bright cartoony pictures of familiar things. Recommended!
The games last too long and my children have always lost patience with it before the games end.
The main problem we find is it involves too many throws of the dice to get to each shop and the children often lose track of which direction they should be moving their people markers.
From an educational point of view it is potentially brilliant in the way
each child has to pay for each shop item with the correct coins but the added confusion of matching cards and taking the correct card makes it more hard work than fun. To be honest ny children have much more fun playing shops with a pretend till and counting out correct play money.
I'm all for children learning through play but this game is too difficult for small children and not interesting enough for older children.
Sorry to be a dissenting voice but this is one purchase I regret.
A straight forward game, made fun by the different items that you need to buy and excellent value for money. I would recommend it for 6-7 year olds based on our experiences.
If your children are too young to play Ludo, they will not enjoy this: you have to be able to decide where you are going, as well as count on how many moves you took. They also need to at least be able to mostly count on in tens with help to have a chance of working out the correct coins and change with your help: if they can't do that yet, you'll probably to working out their money for them each time, and they're unlikely to get much out if it yet, other than the fun of role-play.
I would mostly veer towards the older end of the age range given for this game: if only they would issue a version with Moshi Monsters or some other branding on it, you could continue to get play out of it into the Upper Juniors!
If you're willing to be a bit silly and over-the-top in your role-play, this game is a lot of fun, and it is the very best game I've come across for teaching basic money skills. Highly recommended, when they're ready.
