Details

The most ?attractive? ice cream in your child?s pretend kitchen or restaurant. Use both of the magnetic scoopers, four scoops of favorite ice cream flavors, and wooden cones for hours of ?positive? social interaction and fine motor play. All the ice cream scoops can be stored neatly in the sturdy plastic container. For a child, the only thing more delicious than an ice cream dessert may be the amazing chance to be the one in charge of it! Great for preschoolers longing to act out ?real-world? scenarios and assert some control over their lives (and irresistible to older kids too), this wooden play set allows kids to choose: How many scoops? What flavors? Is it time for seconds yet? Imagining themselves on the other side of the counter, busy ?scoopers? will naturally exercise communication skills, hand-eye coordination, sorting, counting, memory, and sequencing as their confidence and social skills grow. Kids loving playing together when sweet treats are involved. Our ice cream toy with scoopers inspires children to interact with each other while developing fine motor skills. The Melissa & Doug ice cream play toy is designed for easy and convenient storage. The ice cream scoops store neatly in the sturdy plastic container. This ice cream play set is a great gift for kids ages 3 to 5. Add the Melissa & Doug Bake & Decorate Cupcake Set to round out the pretend play experience and give kids an engaging option for screen-free fun. For more than 30 years, Melissa & Doug has created beautifully designed imagination- and creativity-sparking products that NBC News called ?the gold standard in early childhood play.? Today, Melissa & Doug is proudly partnering with the American Academy of Pediatrics to foster early brain development and help children build important life skills through play.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I was hoping for I bought this set for my three year old's birthday. I chose this specific set because my three year old and my six year old really enjoy playing with it at our local Children's Museum. The set that was just opened isn't as enjoyable as the museum's set because the magnets aren't holding as well. At the museum, my three year old can scoop and balance just as well as my six year old but the set at home seems to have weaker magnets and the scoops are barely hanging on. Not sure if the design has been modified from the original, but this is my first thought and if so, the changes are not good. The set is still super adorable but it's just not what I was hoping for when I ordered it for my kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely recommend to buy. My grandson LOVES this set. He is almost three. He has always pretended to be the "Ice cream man". He sits in the playhouse outside and his nieces/friends/parents come to the window to place an order. He absolutely loves using it. This is high quality. They were much "heavier" than I thought they'd be which just showed the quality was really good. The scoopers are so easy and fun for him to use. The magnets work so well. He loves to make triple decker cones and they stand pretty well (although they will tip easier after the 3rd scoop). My kids that are 8 and 10 love playing with it as well. It's a fan favorite at our house! I'll probably buy another set for him to keep at his house. He slept with his cones the first night he got them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite play food toy I bought this for my granddaughter's 2nd birthday to go in her play kitchen. I fully stocked this kitchen with play food sets, dishes, pots and pans, etc. She loves playing with it all but, this ice cream set is by far her favorite. She enjoys using the scoops to scoop ice cream onto the cones and in bowls to pass out to family members. She loves to pretend eating it with others too. She can tell you each of the 4 flavors. She has had this for almost 6 months now and has never grown tired of playing with it. Best food set EVER!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My 2.5 year old approves! I purchased for my 2 1/2 year old daughter and she loves it. She figured out how to use the scooper, so I really like that it helps her with her fine motor skills as well as pretend play. I give it four stars because I'd rather have more cones and don't feel like two scoopers are needed; one would be fine for this small set. Also, one of the ice cream scoops no longer has it's magnetization after just a few weeks. Overall, I highly recommend. My daughter plays with it every day, so was definitely worth it for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Love This Ice Cream Set! Melissa and Doug play food is hands-down the best available. I have a 2 year old and a 5 year old, and they have had loads of fun scooping and delivering ice cream cones to everyone who enters our house. The look and feel is very realistic and the quality is high - these ice cream cones are virtually indestructible, with solid wood cones, heavy plastic scoops, and magnets that hold everything together. This one is definitely a hit - I think it is probably the most played with of all the pretend food we own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I will buy this again! The quality of the pieces is fantastic. Our first set held up to daily use at our preschool for over five years. What I miss with this product is the previous container they were stored in. It was rectangular with compartments for each piece. It was wonderful as a self correcting material for the children and easy for teachers to see if a piece was missing at the end of their day. Love the quality of your products and no plastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE My 2 and 1/2 year old daughter got this for Christmas as a gift from my sister. She LOVES it. We have collected almost ALL of the Melissa and Doug food and play sets, and this is her favorite. My sister paired it nicely with the Melissa and Doug "Sweet Toppings" set and my daughter cannot get enough of this toy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where is the 6th star? My dear friend's three year old little boy had this toy and it was incredible watching him play with it! The fact that this set is magnetic really drew me in. Watching him scoop up the ice cream and then set it onto the cone was really cool. I went and got one for my niece! This awesome set deserves SIX STARS!
