Ideal for Preschool and Playcentre children, these resources and supplies are great for pretend play. By setting up a store children learn to communicate with the customer, identity products and give and receive money. They learn to name products, identify healthy foods, classify fruits, vegetables and other items. Playing shops provides a parent or educator with a wonderful means to introduce food types and names to young children. Shipping is an adult activity that children have fun replicating.
