This popsicle maker is such a cute concept and loads of fun while it's functional. We enjoyed making various pops for several months until the main part failed. It came apart at the top joint while in the freezer and we had a mess of freeze gel everywhere. The pops are fun to create and dream up different options, but the fact that it didn't last long was a huge disappointment. We did like the accessory kit available for separate purchase, which allowed for easy and fun ways to enhance your basic pops. Some of the ingredients called for were hard to come by, however the pop maker readily accepted various juices and added fresh fruit to simplify the process. I really wish this pop maker would have lasted longer. It's not cheap in cost or quality when brand new, but for the price point I did have expectations that it would have a longer useful life. We will look for other alternatives for making pops that aren't as expensive and may hold up better.
