As an activity for kids, this concept is pretty brilliant. They forget that they’re waiting for dessert, they get a little exercise, and when the ice cream is done, they have the satisfaction of knowing they’ve made it themselves. Plus the color options are great and storage is easy. As the only nonelectric model we reviewed, this won very high marks. We’d definitely take it on a picnic.
