Named one of Good Housekeeping magazine’s top toys of 2017, the ice cream cart lets children create yummy-looking ice cream combinations using four flavors of ice cream, three toppings and three syrup flavors. Use the magic scooper to dish up the ice cream and toppings to build customer orders. Then press the pump to add pretend syrup while counting to ten.

While it may seem like pure fun, the toy builds memory and sequencing skills, while also helping kids practice colors and counting. And kids will eat up the chance to push the cart from customer to customer. Best for ages 2-5.

Children must fit the right-sized gears into the slots of the puzzle board so they connect over the picture.

When the picture is finished, they can spin the gears and see their project in motion.
