This is a hard one. On the one hand, in the description, it does say how big it is (about 5 inches) and I did look and take that into consideration when I ordered it. I hate when reviewers take away from a product when what they don't like was clearly stated.
Okay, so the other part in the description says it is functional. It is only functional as a keepsake. Believe me, you will not be dipping ice cream with this. As a keepsake, it is cute and 5 stars. As an ice cream scoop, it gets one star. We actually did try to use it - it started bending on the first scoop :-) So, since they advertised it as both - I went with three stars. Hope this helps someone make a more informed choice.
