Pretend & Play® Teaching ATM Bank - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Learning Resources.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.


Learning Resources is a leading manufacturer of innovative, hands-on educational materials for classrooms and learning toys for the home. They are headquartered in Vernon Hills, IL (a plus for being in my state) and their products are distributed in over eighty countries around the globe.

I have worked with Learning Resources in the past and have been nothing but pleased with their educational toys and games. That's because anything I've received from them has been fun, high-quality, and educational (Shhh! Don't tell the kids the last part).
I have numerous nieces and nephews in various age ranges whom I'm close to.  I also have younger kids at my house when Small Group is held there on Tuesdays.  When the kiddos come by to visit I like to have age-appropriate toys on hand for them to play with.  The Pretend & Play® Teaching ATM Bank that I received from Learning Resources has gotten good feedback from the youths.

The realistic, working electronic ATM bank helps children practice early math and money skills through fun, pretend play. It includes play money and features coin recognition and a mechanical bill feeder.  The coins are plastic and include nickels, dimes, pennies, and quarters.  The paper bills are in $1, $5, $10, and $20 denominations.

Kids can process and learn how to add and subtract with this Teaching ATM Bank.  Play money is included, but the ATM also recognizes real coins and bills.  AA batteries are required for operation, and they are not included.  Once you've installed the batteries, the machine works by pressing a button to turn it on.  Kids can then use the plastic ATM card and place it in the card reader.  Upon first use with the ATM card, a 4-digit PIN number can be created with the keypad.  After first use, children can slide in the ATM card and enter their PIN to play.  If your kids aren't great at keeping hold of all pieces of their toys (like every other kid in the universe!) they don't have to use the ATM card.  They can use a card of the same size or wait a few seconds to bypass that step.

When kids deposit either real or play money, the amount will automatically be added to their balance.  The numbers are displayed on the LCD screen.  Withdrawals can also be made, and that amount is deducted from their balance.  The money is given via the bank vault.  Again, the numbers are displayed on the screen.  The machine makes sounds when deposits and withdrawals are made.  If you prefer for the ATM Bank to keep silent, you can switch the sound off.

The Pretend & Play® Teaching ATM Bank is an exciting and fun toy that teaches children the concept of money.  Lessons can be made on deposits, withdrawals, and coin recognition.

Win It!

One person will win a Pretend & Play® Teaching ATM Bank.
