WHAT THE KIDS SAY
I think lots of kids would like this because in kindergarten playing in the kitchen was one of the favourite centres and this is like that except we made it an ice cream restaurant and added anything you wanted in your ice cream. My favourite is when we put stuff in the ice cream the person didn't order and there is a worm in the middle of the ice cream. It's not a real worm. IT'S A PLAY-DOH WORM!!!!! Isn't that funny??!?!?!?!
I like making ice cream cones the most and mixing up the colors. I also like pretending that I have an ice cream store and my family comes to buy desserts from me.
WHAT ADULTS THINK
Simple to put together, but you can't take it apart to put it away! Great colors and lots of fun but one thing that needs improvement is the sprinkles maker... they never come out right for us... they are always all stuck together. Another thing I might change is add more height between the ice cream maker and the floor of the toy. It is hard to take out your cone and/or sundae once you've made it because the ice cream is all the way up to the top. Despite this, the toy has been played with quite a few times and the kids (M4, F6) keep asking to bring it out so they can make me some dessert.
Lily (3.5) was very excited when she saw she could make her own pretend ice cream with this toy! With a bit of direction showing her how to load and unload the cartridge, she was able to use the toy to make sundaes and cones on her own. She loved using different coloured playdoh and cones and on the first day, it kept her occupied and having fun for quite awhile!
