Happy Shoppers : Money maths for kids!
MAKES USING MONEY EASY FOR KIDS
The payment mechanism is very simple and intuitive. Players are shown the price of the item and the money they have available. They simply drag the correct money into the till and press the pay button. It couldn’t be simpler! Of course the tricky part for children is working out the right money to use. This is why its so important that they get lots of practice, something that they are delighted to do if it helps them complete their list and try to win the game!
3 DIFFICULTY MODES
There are 3 difficulty modes that each player can individually pick from. On easy mode, no item is more than 50p and the player never has to give change. On medium mode, items are up to £1 and the player never has to give change. On hard mode, items are up to £2 and they won’t always have the right money and therefore will have to work out the right change too.
SOLO or UP TO 4 PLAYERS
The app is designed to be played solo or by multiple players. In solo mode, the player doesn’t compete with other players, they simply have to go around town buying the items on their shopping list. This is a great way for a child to practice using money at home.
In multiplayer mode, players compete with each other to see who can complete their shopping list first. Each player can choose his or her own difficulty level, so younger children who are just learning to use money can play on easy mode, while older children (and even parents!) can play on the harder difficulty modes to practice working with higher amounts of money and giving change. This is ideal for brothers and sisters (and parents!) playing together and also for the classroom.
HUNDREDS OF ITEMS TO COLLECT
There are 12 different shops, stocking hundreds of different items including tennis rackets, sweets, fridges, slippers, jumpers, cabbages, hats and roller skates!
