Kids love ice cream and kids love Play-Doh, so it only makes sense that Hasbro would bring the two ideas together in the Play-Doh Perfect Twist Ice Cream Playset.
This playset is designed to look like a real ice cream dispenser, and your child is given plenty of accessories to create sundaes and ice cream cones that will look good enough to eat! Just be sure that your little ones understand that Play-Doh is not real food, ha!
One of the biggest benefits to a child using a toy like the Play-Doh Perfect Twist Ice Cream Playset is the overwhelming positive feeling a child gets about ice cream that spurs their creativity when using this playset. Children get the chance to create an ice cream treat like they have always imagined, and it gives them the chance to mix colors in ways that are not possible with other toys.
Parents should spend time showing their kids how to play with this playset to avoid rough play that could cause damage. This is a playset made from lightweight plastic that could be damaged if your child plays too rough. Parents should also teach their children that the playset is not intended to make real food in any way.
The Play-Doh Perfect Twist Ice Cream Playset is designed to look like an old fashioned ice cream dispenser that comes complete with plastic ice cream cones. The pump handle is used to dispense the Play-Doh into the cones, and there are accessories to help make decorations. The dispenser is covered with molds that can be used to create various ice cream treat decorations in a variety of colors. There are even sundae glasses that come with the playset to allow your child to build the perfect ice cream sundae.
This playset contains pieces that could be considered choking hazards, which has caused the manufacturer to set the minimum age for safe operation of this toy at three years old and up. Parents should heed the age requirement and take special care to teach their children how to play with this playset without putting any small pieces in their mouths.
At the time of this writing, the manufacturer has set a retail price of $21.99 for this playset. Your online retailer may add applicable sales tax and shipping charges to your purchase to increase the final purchase price.
There are several interactive features that come with the Play-Doh Perfect Twist Ice Cream Playset, and some of them are built right into the toy itself. Those features include:
Hasbro makes good use of all of the available space on this toy. There are no features that are put in place just for show, and there are no accessories that lack necessary moving parts.
This toy is not powered by batteries or electricity, so parents should remind children to be careful when playing with the toy's manual interactive features as once again, it is on the fragile side.
The ice cream toy does require some assembly, but its lightweight design helps to make assembly easy. The playset has a small footprint that makes it easy to use anywhere in the house, and it is also easy to transport from one room to the next.
The Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Flip 'N Frost Cookie Set that we also reviewed is much like the Play-Doh Perfect Twist Ice Cream Playset with the exception of creating cookies instead of ice cream.
The Flip 'N Frost Cookie Set gives your child all of the features and accessories necessary to create colorful cookies that, as well, look almost good enough to eat. This an many others are available in the food genre as Hasbro offers a nice selection!
In addition, if you are looking for appropriate accessories for the Play-Doh Perfect Twist Ice Cream Playset, then consider some of the Play-Doh Plus colors along with the Dough Tools.
Play-Doh Plus is a new line of modeling clay that has a wide assortment of colors that will help your child's ice cream creations to look vibrant and fun. The Dough Tools set is a set of five Play-Doh cutting and manipulating tools that can be used to make special toppings or colorful decorations for sundaes.
