     When you want a practical novelty for the little ones at home, to keep them learning how to add, and not away to roam.
     PLAY STORE REGISTER Is a practical and durable novelty. Made from cold rolled steel, beautifully ornamented. Height 4 inches, width 4 inches, length 301/2 inches, weight 3/4 pound.
     There are six levers or keys marked $1.00, 35c, 25c, 20c, 10c, 5c, corresponding with figures on the dial.
                                       HOW TO OPERATE
     Press down lever marked 20c; the number shows at once on the dial and the drawer opens. The flash or curtain keeps the other figures hidden. Then close the drawer and the figure disappears, and so on with all the levers and numbers.
     We furnish with Play Store Register fifteen metal pieces representing Play Store Money for the little folks to play store or keep house.
     It also teaches the value of money and what they pay out and what they should get in return, and is instructive. This fascinating little register teaches the children addition and subtraction.
 
MAKES YOUR HOMES HAPPY WITH
     THOUGHTFUL DELIGHT
AND YOUR CHILDREN, LIKE CHICKENS
     WILL COME HOME AT NIGHT
AND NONE OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD
     WILL UNWILLINGLY ROAM
THEY WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER
     THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
