What is it:
Not to be confused with the lightning-fast Zoku Quick Pop Maker, Zoku’s Slow Pop Makers are a conventional put-it-in-the-freezer mold with a modern twist. These dinosaur-themed frozen pops will tickle your little dino lover’s fancy.Brew up your favourite mix and make fun shapes.
How it works:
Similar to a traditional popsicle mould – fill with your favourite juice, smoothie, yoghurt, or just plain water up to the designated line, pop the stick in, and place in the freezer until frozen. Match the shape on the stick to the shape on the mould to ensure your pops match up, or mix and match to make your own prehistoric creation.
What we love:
This cute twist on classic popsicles is fun to make and oh-so-easy to pop out – just pull the stick and the pops come out of the silicone mold easily. The sticks have a heart shape that is slowly revealed as your children eat the pops, and the tyrannosaurus, stegosaurus, triceratops, and cute cave girl will delight kids.
Our editor says:
My young Master Five loves all things dinosaur, and when he saw the ZOKU Dino Pop Molds, his eyes lit up – edible dinosaurs! The size is great for little hands and a good portion size – not too big they can’t finish it – and I especially appreciate the built-in drip guards to keep stickiness at bay (although nothing can be done about messy faces, alas). The mould is sturdy and small enough to fit nicely into our very compact freezer without taking up too much room. We made ours with juice and then with plain water, and they were a great treat on hot summer days.
Things to remember:
- Comes with one set of four molds and four sticks with drip guards
- BPA and phthalate free
- Follow the included instructions til you get the hang of using them.
