CHICAGO, Oct. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today VTech® announced its Ring & Learn Cash Register™ received an esteemed Platinum Award from the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio. The interactive cash register, which comes with a shopping basket and play food to encourage little ones with role-play fun, was recognized as one of the most innovative and engaging products of the year.
"We are very excited that our Ring & Learn Cash Register has been acknowledged by the respected Oppenheim Toy Portfolio," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "This product is a wonderful example of how we develop engaging toys that enrich children's development through play and discovery, and it's an honor to see our efforts recognized with a Platinum Award."

Children can press the light-up number buttons to introduce numbers, colors, food and hear healthy-eating phrases. For even more role-play fun, they can press the "open" button to pop open the cash register drawer.
