Recommended for children ages three and up, the Ice Cream Scoop Set is great for imaginative playtime using your favorite dessert.

Realistic Ice Cream and Scoopers Act Like the Real Thing

The detailed scoops of ice cream in Melissa & Doug's Ice Cream Scoop Set come in four varieties: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and mint chocolate chip. Each scoop contains a magnet that attaches to the scooper handle--and then detaches when the handle's button is pressed--so your child can pick up and stack ice cream just like an adult!

Materials Are Durable and Safe for Years of Play

In this Ice Cream Scoop set, each ice cream top is constructed of strong, durable plastic and decorated to look like popular ice cream flavors. The cones are made of wood, and each scooper features a wooden handle and plastic scoop mechanism. A whimsical plastic container provides a spot to store the ice cream tops and is decorated to look like a real box of ice cream, including some rather entertaining "nutritional facts."

Fun Play Set Helps Kids Learn

The back of the Ice Cream Scoop package suggests several different games to play with the ice cream set, each designed to help your child improve their pattern recognition, motor skills, and math proficiency. Whether it's asking for a specific combination of flavors or naming each flavor as they scoop, kids will enjoy scooping and playing, while simultaneously exercising their mind.

Our testers found the play set to be well constructed and made of high-quality materials. The magnets could be a little stronger, but, in general, the scooping action was easy and the scoops of ice cream clicked together securely.

My daughters love this playing with this toy. Why 3 stars? Three reasons:
1. As another reviewer mentioned, the ice cream container isn't big enough to hold all the pieces, so the pieces are constanly all over the place.
2. The magnets on our ice cream scoops fell off within weeks. Around younger children, they could be a chocking hazzard.
3. The ice cream container is made of plastic. When I purchased it online, I don't think it was clear what material it was. The reason I buy M&D products is because I like the wood and because I'm trying to avoid plastic!

This is a fun toy but why oh why didn't they make the carton large enough to fit at least all of the ice cream/cones? I can understand not being able to store the scoopers in there but I can't get all of the ice cream and cones in and close the lid so it makes for a not-so-fun toy to store. The pieces are always scattered.

I bought ths for my two year old for her birthday and her 6 year old brother loves it just as much. It is well made. The ice cream "tops" and cones are a very nicely finished wood and the ice cream box and scoops are a strong plastic. I wish all of the pieces fit inside the ice cream box for storage. That is what would have earned this toy five stars. Otherwise, this toy is wonderful!

After looking at a couple of sets I decided on this one. My 2 year old loves it! Really, she does! She walks with it all over the house giving different flavors to everyone. It has 2 cones, and 4 scoops (strawberry, chocolate, pistachio and vanilla). They look so real you almost want to eat them! You can't store everything in the carton, only the scoops and maybe one cone, but I haven't really seen many sets including a carton or looking this real, so it doesn't bother me. The scoops are held magnetically to the spoons (2 included) and you can unlock them by pressing the handle ( but even if your kid can't it's not a problem cause the cone also has a Magnet and it pulls it ). I highly recommend this set!

Okay, it's a cute concept and my daughter loves it. The ice cream and scoops are colored plastic (ice cream is also textured), the cones are wood,and the paint on the box seems durable. Two scoops seems excessive for a set with only four ice cream tops, but maybe that's me -- I'd prefer six tops (cookies/cream and butter pecan maybe?) and only one scoop (I'd rather have arguments over using one scoop than over the ice cream tops).

My main issue is that the magnets that hold the ice cream to the cones aren't stronger. They only hang on just enough to not fall off the cones (technically, you can slowly turn it upside down and it won't fall off) and stay stacked on each other (as long as you don't tilt the cone much). You have to be actually slower and more careful than with the real thing to make sure these don't fall off (although, yes, no mess is nice) -- maybe this is a good habit to get into, but it's not much fun. Also, the tops don't sit flush on the cones -- there's a gap of about half a centimeter all the way around -- so the edges of the cone don't help hold the tops on at all if/when they slide a bit before falling off. It also doesn't look that great.

Additionally, the ice cream box will only hold the ice cream tops (and only 4 btw, if you get more than one set), which I find particularly annoying since that means I have four other large-ish items (two cones and two scoops) to somehow store separately yet together with the box. Sure, it's realistic that they don't store together normally... But, it's mostly a TOY and I would much prefer that the ice cream box had room for all of the items or at least clips on the box for the scoops.

He loves to serve ice cream to me, and when his friends come over to play they always play with the ice cream toy. The toy is very durable. It helped my son develop hand-eye coordination in using the scoop to scoop the ice cream and place on top of the cone.

I got this for my 3 1/2yo twins for Christmas and they LOVE it. I went with this set over the "deluxe" because it was cheaper but the core pieces are, as far as I can tell, the same. If you pay more you get the wooden box which stores everything, but I thought they'd get a kick out of keeping the ice cream in the carton in their toy freezer, and the other stuff somewhere else - it seemed more realistic. Then I thought, we can keep the ice cream in the carton, and the carton and everything else in the box, and the whole thing in the freezer - but the box doesn't fit in their freezer (KidKraft wooden kitchen). So have to figure out arrangements, not a huge deal.

Other than the outer box being cardboard, I love how sturdy everything is. The ice cream carton is sturdy plastic, I was afraid it might break easily before it arrived but it's quite sturdy. I wouldn't stand on it but it should hold up to play. The pick-up mechanism of the scoopers works great and it's easy to plop the ice cream on the cones. It's super cute and very real looking. My only real complaint is the magnets could be a little stronger. The scoops come off a tad too easily - and pretending to lick them is pretty difficult. But my girls are having a ton of fun with this. We will have to get the banana split set to add to it. Definitely a winner of a toy IMO.
