Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Perfect Twist Ice Cream Playset Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

With Hasbro's Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Perfect Twist Ice Cream playset, kids can twist, swirl, and sprinkle their own Play-Doh ice cream creations. Fill the ice cream cartridge with one, two, or even three colors of the Play-Doh Plus compound and insert it into the ice cream machine.

Just like an ice cream shop you have the choice between making a cone or cup, place whichever one on the stand below the dispenser. Pull down the handle and your imaginary soft-serve ice cream will twist out the bottom. Pinch off any excess Play-Doh Plus and remove your treat from the platform. Kids can also use the machine's sprinkle station to add toppings to their creations or use the molds all over the playset to make other tasty treats and shapes such as donuts, peanuts, candy, and more. Kids can also display their creations on the platform on top of the Sweet Shoppe playset.

The set includes five cones, two dishes, two spoons, the sprinkle maker, one compound cartridge, two cans of Play-Doh modeling compound, and three cans of Play-Doh Plus compound.

Is It Fun?

Preschoolers love food play of any kind, especially when it's combined with Play-Doh. And this is a playset that packs in a lot of fun features that engages kids in creativity, roleplay, and lots of fun food play. Kids will especially love using the machine to swirl their own ice scream creations.

Who It’s For

Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Perfect Twist Ice Cream playset is for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Swirling your "ice cream" into the perfect shape can be frustrating. We've found it works best to push down slowly on the leveler and guide the Play-Doh into the swirl shape.

Using the sprinkle station takes a bit of trial and error to get the right sprinkle consistency. Too much Play-Doh and your sprinkles look more snake-like than sprinkle-like. Too little and the dough won't come out. The sprinkle station is also difficult to clean.

Play-Doh Plus is a new formulation for Play-Doh that is softer and easier to mold and extrude without crumbling. It can be mixed with original Play-Doh with no problem.
