|Seal of Approval Winner Fall 2000
Remember when you first saw a bar code, you know those apparently random vertical lines on every product these days. The mystery of what those lines meant is beyond any level of comprehension for most of us, apart from the fact that they talk to the supermarket checkout machine and speed up that process. Along comes this play scanner and it all starts to make some sense. Given a tool like this there is no limit to the kind of fun enhancements for kids when they play “store”. Our testers played space station, post office and found the scanner could fulfill all kinds of imaginative uses. The LCD price readout and a satisfying, realistic beep sound on this handheld toy were big plusses that added up to a great toy.
