Learning Resources Pretend & Play Calculator Checkbook

It’s fun to play like you’re a grown up! Kids fill out pretend checks, make payments and calculate their balance as they learn about check writing. Calculator is solar-powered and checks are actual size for even more realistic play. Includes 25 checks, check register, pen, calculator, deposit slips and instruction card.

Disappointed When my teenage children were younger I bought them pretend checkbooks by ParentBanc and used them for their allowance. Now that my other two are ages 7 and 10, I wanted to do the same with them, to teach them the concept of checks and help them learn to manage their money. I have not been able to find the ParentBanc checks, but I did find this set, which looked to be really nice, so I ordered them (although I feel they are overpriced). I was disappointed to find that the check register is simply two connected sheets printed on front and back, the checkbook doesn’t have a cardboard backing to slide into the checkbook cover. I guess my expectations were high because the ParentBanc brand was so much nicer and more like the real deal. Also, I ordered two sets and the pen doesn’t work in either set. I gave my kids a real check register and another pen, so these serve the purpose for their allowance, but for $15 per set, I really expected better.

Great way to help children understand money. I got this for my oldest three children ages 11, 8, and 7 as a gift from Santa along with an opening “balance”. The children loved the idea of having to write checks and now when they want something they can write their “bankers”(aka Mom and Dad) a check and we will buy it. So they are learning that once it’s spent its gone, so are trying to decide should they save or spend. Since they have no actual money its not burning holes in pockets or getting lost. They are actually thinking about diffrent things and when we say get your check book the re-think the decision about wheather they really want it or not. I’m hoping it not only keeps them from “borrowing” from one another but make sure they really want what they buy, so it’s not stuck in the toy chest within the week.Would have given more stars but it’s to early to tell how this will work in the long run.
