      We learn about the world we live in through play. That surely is not an action given up after childhood. Play reinforces our understanding and tests our imagination. And our imagination must be worth more than money.

      Clif, too many pretend sweets can lead to virtual over-inflation.

      Tom, learning how to use money is simple sums, learning the value of money probably takes a lot longer.

      Douglas, an interesting concept; I'll give you tuppence for your imagination;-) I suppose play and the construction of our imagination is priceless.

      hi tony - It's never too early to learn about money. As for inflation, they say the universe learned in the first nanosecond! It's a nice shot, but I think a mobile would be better for learning to phone. - robert

      Can't say that toys aren't collaborative and colorful models.

      Stewart, setting up shop ... and learning about the swipe card.

      Robert, yep, inflation can be a tricky thing to understand, we'll probably be encouraged to use our phones as a purse and cash register in the not too distant future ... now to find out something about where you are

      Odon, nothing like some vivid colours to get people involved in play.
