Tom Thumb Cash Register

Tom Thumb Cash Register: I had one of these when I was a kid. My sister and I would play "store" and would ring up our grocery items with it. It was pink like the one in this photo and the amounts regularly got stuck so you had to push them back down with your fingers. Still had tons of fun with it!

I'm not sure what year they were released but I'm guessing sometime in the 60's.
