I felt a fool through young childhood because I couldn’t work out what this toy was all about. I mean, I imagine I knew it was meant to be a till, and I had loads of shop-related toys anyway. But what are the numbers? They don’t correspond to coins, even weird early 80s coins (in fact the till is dated 1968, adding to the mystery as I wasn’t born until more than a decade later). Why are they arranged like that? Is there a pattern? Have those numbers come up consistently through my life, and I never noticed UNTIL NOW?
Any ideas? Can you help? Can one or two or three or five of you help? Shit! That was IT, wasn’t it? It’s in my HEAD.
