What We Think

Fun factor:
Durability:
Educational factor:
Novelty factor:

The Good: Toy offers sturdy construction that's versatile enough to last several years.

The Challenging: We wish there were more pieces for easier group play; also, the wooden cones are a bit heavy for younger children.

In a Nutshell: Realistic ice cream cone playset offers plenty of inspiration for a child's imaginative play.

Scoop 'N' Stack
The Melissa & Doug Ice Cream Set features an abundance of nostalgic ice cream parlor charm, starting with its sturdy red-and-white, striped storage container. The set includes four realistic molded plastic ice cream scoops in chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and mint chocolate chip "flavors." Two wooden cones and two plastic scoopers with painted wooden handles round out the set.

The scoopers, cones, and four ice cream scoops are all magnetic, so the scoopers can actually pick up the ice cream scoops and place them on the cones. They easily release by pressing the lever, like a real ice cream scooper. Magnets in the cones keep the scoops in place, even with a quadruple-dipped cone. (All magnets are located on the interior of the pieces, so there's no danger of the magnets breaking off and posing a serious risk to small children.)

Almost Good Enough to Eat
This set carries realistic, authentic touches, from the classic ice cream scoopers to the waffle design on the wooden cones. The cones look so good that our child tester almost fooled an adult into thinking her cone was real.

With its simple design and sturdy build, the Melissa & Doug Ice Cream Set gives children ideal props to inspire their imaginations -- no batteries, bells, or whistles to limit the possibilities. The toy can also aid in developing motor skills every time a young child uses the ice cream scooper to stack and balance the scoops.

But it's a toy that older children will enjoy, too. The toy's sturdy, quality construction helps ensure that it will last through many years of play. Because it comes with two scoopers, this toy is ideal for group play, although some testers wished that the set had a few more pieces.

My daughter (3 years old) got this for her birthday. It was a big hit! All the kids loved playing with it. Even some of the parents were trying it out.

The cones are made of wood--so they're heavy and if you drop it on your toes, watch out! But the ice cream itself is a lightweight, very durable plastic.

I would highly recommend this product to any kids. I'm thinking of purchasing a second set just for when friends come over, that way they can each have a cone!

One thing I would like to recommend to the Melissa and Doug company, is for them to come out with a "Ice cream parlour 2" set. Maybe some more ice cream scoop flavors (orange sherbet, berry swirl, etc) or just extra cones. Even just a set of extra ice cream would be nice. Overall, it's a great set. Very good quality, as is all the Melissa & Doug toys we've bought. Your kids will love it!

i bought this as a two-part gift for my 2yo niece -- she, as well as the other kids at the birthday party -- loved it. they're super cute and durable, seeing as how they're made out of wood and hard plastic. the really cute part was that they have light magnetic circles that help keep them on top of the wood cone foundation. i'm definitely a lover of melissa and doug products, and this one is truly a great one. if your kid loves ice cream, cooking, or playing in a little kitchen, i'd recommend this in a heartbeat.

We saw this product at a conference and the kids all loved it. We got it for my 4 y.o. birthday and everyone always plays with it when they come over. Even my 14 y.o. has been known to make a cone or two.

This product is being used by more than 50 children in a child care center. They love it! The magnets are strong and the piecies are durable enough to survive all these little hands. This product gets two thumbs up.

We have had this toy for a year and it has been great! We even still have the cardboard box it came in because the kids like to sort the pieces back into the box. It is definitely a great addition to any play kitchen!

My son first discovered this in a toy store when he was two years old and was fascinated by the magnets that made the scoop work. He learned quickly how to hold the handle of the scoop as he held it over the ice cream, then he would push the lever on the scoop to make the ice cream drop. He could do that over and over again for quite a while! We purchased it for him for the upcoming Christmas and he was thrilled!

Now, as a three-year-old, he still loves it. Our younger daughter also loves to stack the ice cream on the cones and carry them around the house. She doesn't really care that much about the scoops, but she is only one.

I really wish, though, that there were more than two cones. There are four ice cream flavors, and technically you can stack them all on one cone, but anything higher than two scoops will fall quickly. Even stacking two scoops on one cone is pretty unstable. I know my kids would love having more cones, and I would buy two more if I could get them separately!

This is definitely a fun, durable toy!

i wasn't fully expecting the tops to be plastic and magnetic, but it does make more sense than the velcro that works well with the other types of food toys. i loved the fact that it came with two cones and two scoops since i got it for my two boys to play with. that way it's fair. i think the only downside is the box isn't as sturdy as the other food boxes (the dividers are thick cardboard instead of wood) so i know at some point my boys with destroy it. i also am trying my best to keep the scoops from getting broken since they are also plastic. another con is that melissa and doug has started getting their toys manufactured in china, which is a real shame. i know it cuts costs for them, but one of the reasons i like their toys is the fact that they are wooden, as opposed to plastics (normally) and used to be US made. but overall i can't say i'm disappointed in the toy overall (and my boys certainly love it) and will most likely continue to purchase melissa and doug toys, especially since we have the corner kitchen and many food accessories already that my boys absolutely LOVE! (they are 4 and 2.5 and i have another boy on the way that i'm sure will get much use out of them)

I bought this pretend ice cream set for my 3 children (ages 5,4 and 3). Like all of our other Melissa and Doug kitchen items, they love it! They spend hours in their kitchen now. The set it adorable, magnetic so that the ice cream sticks to the scoop until you press the button, and then sticks to the cone. The set is very durable, which is a good thing, as it is getting lots of use. So far, it has been the favorite toy for all of their little friends who come to visit, and I intend to buy sets as Christmas gifts for all of the nieces and nephews this year.

I have bought a variety of Melissa and Doug toys (dress up clothes, hopscotch, toy food and pantry items) but this by far is our house favorite. Before we got this my children were putting toy balls in cups and pretending those were ice cream; now they are excited to have the 'real' thing. You can stack the ice cream all on one. The scoops are fantastic and work great. The kids just love 'scooping' and pretend eating and then doing it all over again. My children are 1 and 3 yrs old.
