Mensagem: 

    We went to a mall, in fact I was going to get a scanner.
     So, we decided to do some window-shopping around. After having entered a shop he comes with a box of cards, the following dialogue developed: 

(boy)- Look mommy it´s for free!
(mommy) - What?
(boy) This doesn´t have a price tag! (in fact all other items around had a price tag, but not the cards...)
We went to the seller and knew that it had a price, at last!
=======
     Later then at RiHappy shop, he come with a  pricey game ("soletrando" if memory serves...) and again:

 

(little one announces)              -Look daddy it´s only 4 reais! get one!

(Daddy, scratching the forehead, don´t believing what had just heard)          -Hmm, let´s see...(going into the bar code reader where a seller was checking some other toys prices.)


(Seller after checking it out)            -It´s 99 reais. (matter of factly, as if he was telling us that it cost 4 reais!)


After that, we had some ice-cream, 3.99 each cone.
Ah, I got the scanner as well; I am waiting my older child comes to install in the computer.

We discovered the boy´s interpretation made sense, the toy was in the shelf that the tag price reads 4 reais!
