Who would love this: Ice cream lovers (and anyone who has a dream of becoming an ice-cream vendor)

I always have the special soft spot for everything coming from Melissa & Doug! It’s the quality, and little touch of cleverness. This set of Wooden Scoop and Serve Ice Cream Counter brings the game of pretend ice cream vendor to another exciting level! It is a hugely popular item in this household, where both of my kids (1 and 4 year-old) love immensely. We had loads of amazing pretend play time together with ice cream ordering, scooping, and creating. 

Why I love ❤️ this: 

(1) Clever Ice Cream Scooper:  really cleverly- designed and realistic ice cream scooper (each colourful scoop fits nicely into the scooper, and easily “released” with a press at the top). Watch the video by swiping left! 

(2) Yummy Menu - ohhh chocolate chips, strawberry, coffee, vanilla, cookie dough, rocky roads.... and saliva-inducing toppings caramel fudge, more strawberry, rainbow sprinkles..... slurp slurp slurp 

(3) Mathematic Skills- each scoop and topping is $1, so how much should I pay for this giant ice cream? Oh free for you mummy! “Dollar bills” included. 

(4) Wooden Design - sturdy! 

(5) Family Time: kids spend loads of time playing this, and adults get to join in the fun too (just need to sit on couch and pretend to be bossy customer 😂). Quality time at home! 

Enjoy the video below for some real scooping and creating action!
