  • Details of each toy/product will be stored in the system with a unique product number, product description and unit price in GBP.
  • The system should be able to take orders from the customers where each order can be tracked with a unique order number. Using that unique order number the authorized person can fetch other details of a particular order stored in the Order table like order date, order total(total amount paid in that particular order) and the customer placed that order.
