There are 2 game modes, the first where children use coins to make up varying amounts to buy the toys and the second where they work out the change. There are varying levels of difficulty. The easiest levels involve working out amounts with coins of the same denomination and the activities progress from counting out amounts with mixed coins to working out change from up to ten euro.
