    This toy is a total rip off! It is 50 bucks for some plastic and a cheap ice cream maker. Problems with this toy:

    1) It takes 10 minutes to get it out of the box.
    2) There is no little motor to make the ice cream, this baby is manual powered. Shake it for ten minutes, stir, shake another five minutes.
    3) I have no idea where they came up with the measurements for the recipes. If you make the recipes included, you'll have about 5 times more mix than will fit in the tiny little ice cream maker. Now, to put that in perspective. It would take you about an hour and 15 minutes of shaking to make that much ice cream!
    4) The little gaskets in the top and bottom of the ice cream maker fall out constantly.
    5) There is no insulation in the ice cream maker so water condenses on the outside and drips every where.
    6) The recipes call for about 20 dollars worth of ingredients, which brings your grand total to $70 for a few ounces of ice cream. *lol* It is quite comical.

    I hate this toy, but my 10-year old loves it, so whatta ya gonna do?

    My six year old daughter loves this toy! First, it is a cool place for Bratz Kidz to hang out and play and an ice cream maker second. It is a toy after all, so don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.

    The ice cream maker container holds less then 3/4 cup of liquid. I halved the recipe included and still had double what I could use. However, the recipes are quite simple and not as expensive as mentioned in other reviews. For basic vanilla ice cream I only had to buy half and half and a small box of rock salt (I found it at Wal-Mart next to the regular salt).

    The negative is that we had to shake the container over the sink for 20 minutes because it was leaking water from the bottom (maybe because the seal wasn't tight enough). Also the rubber sealers on the top and bottom kept falling off while trying to put in the ingredients.

    I won't dismiss attempting another round of ice cream-making because it was kind of fun and the ice cream maker did a good job of freezing the cream and it tasted pretty good. However, I think my daughter would be just as happy if we were to buy ice cream from the store and let her load up the snow lodge with the toppings, because that part of the toy is cute and doesn't require 20 minutes of manual labor for two licks of ice cream.

    This product, over-all, is adorable and fun and seems pretty durable. I think any little girl who loves Bratz Kidz dolls would love to have this.

    I bought this ice cream maker for my 6 year old daughter. It is very cute and she was very excited to get it. It went together very easily and the direction for ice cream was clearly written. We didn't have all the ingredients on hand so it did require a shopping trip and rock salt was hard to find but we did finally get all the ingredients together and make the ice cream. If you do not have a skinny spatula that might be something else to get at the store as you will need it the scrape the cylinder used to make the ice cream. I will be honest and tell you the first time through making the ice cream will be a little bit of a learning experience. It is important to really scrape the ice cream off the sides of the cylinder. This will allow the unfrozen ice cream to freeze. It took about 10 minutes to make the 1/2 cup of ice cream but it was a great learning experience and it was very delicious. Overall I would say that if you are not a creative cooking type of person you may find this to be more work than it is worth. We however have made Ice cream numerous times and would buy this product again.

    My DD had wanted this for Christmas. It was all she talked about, how she wanted her ice cream maker..Well, I found one for $10.00 right here on Amazon. I purchased it. After spending 20 minutes unwrapping the stupid thing..We were FINALLY ready to make ice cream!

    Oh wait, no. No we weren't. Because all they give you are sprinkles! Isn't that crazy? It retails for $50.00 and you still have to buy MORE! Don't forget the rock salt! Put everything inside, shake for about fifteen minutes..And you've just made ice cream smaller than a golf ball!

    This thing is horrible. Have I said that yet? I could probably do the same concept with my tupperware.

    My niece absolutely loves this toy. It was not difficult to put together but it was difficult to get out of the packaging. The price of this toy is on the expensive side, especially since you need to buy the ice cream ingredients. So far ( I got it as a christmas present ) it seems durable. It didn't break and she's not tired of it. It does teach patience waiting to make the ice cream, you have to shake it by hand. This toy requires help for the young ones as in your the one who is going to be doing the shaking. Overall, my niece loves it so that's all that really matters in the end.

    This toy was purchased for my seven year old. I was hoping to find a toy that should could use without my help so I can get things done around the house. The first time we used it it was a bit difficult, but now she is able to use it alone. She's able to cut the recipes down to make just enough ice cream for herself and has made ice cream almost everyday since Christmas. The toy aspect of it has not been used. My seven year old is happy with it and so am I
