Just got most of a Dippin Dots Frozen Dot Maker. It's missing a couple of the liquid tanks and the main machine (which was nothing but a support for the ice trays), but it doesn't really matter. Much of the activity that this is supposed to provide for kids was pretty silly. Essentially, it's a bunch of ice cube trays that make tiny spheres. The machine was supposed to let you freeze dots made from different juices into a pattern in the ice tray. -Which is made immaterial when you pop the spheres out to use them. I got about 90% of the kit, but will wind up just using the ice trays to make plain and flavored little spheres. The plastic seems harder than silicon, but softer than an old-school ice cube tray, so I do not know if it will stand up to being used with sugar work. That said, I have been cheerfully making cute itty-bitty ice spheres for cocktails out of various juices and having fun. I have 4 of the ice mold trays, a decent deal for $.99. If I can make tiny hard candy spheres, that will also be fun.
