Play-Doh Perfect Sales Playset

Our daughters received this as a gift; it's one of many Play-Doh sets we have. The main attraction is an extruder that pumps out ice cream into a spinning cone - voila! TV-commercial worthy play-doh ice cream cone!

The problem is the key feature is that you can make twist cones, by which I mean, you can mix approximately two jars of play-doh plus together and make about two twist cones. Now the play-doh is mixed together and basically useless. This amounts to about 90 seconds of fun per two jars of play-doh. The set comes with three jars. I'm sure this is a big money-maker for the manufacturer as the parents of disappointed children buy more play-doh to waste on this ridiculous thing. Even as a gift it would have cost us a ton if I didn't throw it away after that supremely annoying 90 seconds was over.

Frustrating for a 4 year old

My daughter loves to play with Play-doh products and has been asking for the Play-Doh Perfect Twist Ice Cream maker for a while now. I finally gave in and got it for her because she's almost 5 and was hoping that she would be able to use the ice cream maker without adult assistance. The age on the box says age 3 and up but to be honest I highly doubt many 3 year olds are going to be able to play with this. They don't have the motor skills, patience or strength needed.

Here are my cons for this toy:

~ Difficult to use the sprinkle maker. It's flimsy and requires a fair amount of pressure to work
~ When you push down level the ice cream shoots out while the ice cream cone swirls. We basically ended up with a huge mess.
~The cone holder is nearly impossible to get the cones out of without taking it off the machine. Our went flying more than once when trying to get a cone out.
~The little impressions are extremely hard to get the dough out of and still have the shape or impression intact.

Here are my pros:

~ It does encourage imagination
~ It does help fine tune their motor skills
~ Problem solving comes in to play
~Promotes creativity

I would say this toy is more for a 6+ age group. My daughter will be 5 in a couple months and she can play with the perfect twist ice cream maker however it requires a fair amount of assistance from me or another adult. She did enjoy playing with it but I could tell she was getting frustrated having to ask me for help every few minutes. She eventually gave up playing with the perfect twist ice cream maker and just played with the cones, ice cream cups and play-doh. If I had to do this over I would not buy it again for her. She's just not ready for it.

Play Doh Ice Cream Maker

My son wanted this ice cream maker for quite some time so grandma bought him one. First, the device is not as big as you think it would be. Ice cream cups are TINY. But seems the boy does not care, which is a plus. Second, the space between the cup (when put in the space below the ice cream maker) and the place where ice cream is coming out is not wide/big enough. One ice cream in the cup it'w hard to yank the cup out. But again, kid does not seem to mind. Third, the lever to use when making ice cream is not tough enough. Kid uses force to operate it, and I see it breaking any time (but has not broken yet). 

My biggest beef is that the box says play doh is some special "doh plus" kind, which you would think be something that would not crumble easily, etc. Nope, made quite a mess the very first time my son used it. And lastly, I see it sells here on amazon for $51 - definitely not worth it. Asked grandma what she paid for it and she said Target had it for $14.99. That I can handle. Overall my son is happy and plays with it a lot. I did purchase a set of regular play doh, which is a bit harder to work with in the machine, but it's not as messy. I will recommend this toy because clearly it;s fun for the kids. Tip - use on the table or put a vinyl tablecloth on the floor if you use play doh that's included, otherwise you'll be cleaning your carpet and rugs for an hour like I did the first time.

This is a nice Play-doh set and we recommend this to everyone

This is a nice Play-doh set and we recommend this to everyone. Our 7 and 4 yo both loved playing with this. Of course it is messy but it is fun. Over the years the sets are improving in quality but I can see Play-doh is having a hard time coming up with new ideas. How many ice cream and food playsets can you make? We also look forward to see whats new from Play-doh but are usually disappointed as it is usually the same toy but just looks different. If you don't have any of these sets you should pick this one up.

best play doh ice cream maker

My girls love it. This one is different than the other Play Doh ice cream makers. My daughter like this one because of the handle. She said it is like a real ice cream machine and much easier to use than the other ones that require you push down on the top. Remember to clean any leftover play doh out when playtime is done or will harden and the toy will become hard to use. A lot of people forget that when they get these toys. As long as you help your kids keep it clean after they're done playing it will work great and last long time. I agree the lever on the front is much easier than the others she has.
