Melissa & Doug Speck Seahorse Sand Ice Cream Set Review & Giveaway

One of my kids’ favorite summer activities is playing with their sand and water table. I love that it inspires creativity, allowing them to dig, build, explore and create whatever they can dream up. I am always on the lookout for new toys which will fit in well with their sand and water table and the Melissa & Doug Speck Seahorse Sand Ice Cream Set does just that!

The Speck Seahorse Sand Ice Cream Set includes 2 “ice cream” scoops (one for regular scoop and one for soft serve ice cream), 2 cones, a sand shaker and a handy storage bucket with molding lid. The Speck Seahorse Sand Ice Cream Set was a big hit for my kids, who immediately set up an ice cream shop with their set. The seahorse shaped scoops are perfect for little hands and the set of two scoops and cones allowed them to play together at the same time. My kids especially liked the sand shaker which they used as sprinkles for their new ice cream creations.

As a mom, I found the Speck Seahorse Sand Ice Cream Set to be of the same high quality materials that I have come to expect from the Melissa & Doug brand. Not only is it durable, but I love that all of the pieces easily fit back into the storage bucket.  Overall, this is an excellent set that I expect will provide enjoyment for years to come.
