Step2 knows that pretend play is the best way for kids to learn how to exercise their imaginations, which they can do at the new Stop & Go Market.

Designed for kids ages 3 and up, this all-in-one market stand, gas station and toll booth is like the ultimate shopping center. It comes with a gas pump, a tollbooth, cones, a chalkboard, an umbrella, and a working cashier. Kids can take turns role-playing as the cashier and customer; use the chalkboard to write out daily specials, gas prices, or the name of their market; or pull up to the market on their bikes or ride-on cars to fill up on gas and pay the toll.

The electronic cash register can help kids practice math, counting, and money management as they make sales, collect toll money, or charge for gas. Kids can also learn social skills and how to practice good customer service while playing with friends.

Plus, the set also has wheels, so parents can help kids easily move the entire set around from room to room. If they bring it outdoors, the 40-inch umbrella will help shade kids from the sun.

The Step2 Stop & Go Market is available now!
