I was recently gifted a set of Little Bites Popsicle Molds from the wonderful folks at Kinder-ville, thank you!
When we opened the brown shipping box we were greeted by the cutest earmuff wearing strawberry and a little cow wearing a scarf, they are on the front of every popsicle mold box and man are they cute!
We took the molds out right away and I had my children wash the soft silicone molds in the sink with some warm soapy water then set them to dry while we all tried to decide what would end up inside them. The decision was made easy when I started searching through the refrigerator for fruit and discovered some bottled strawberry yogurt smoothies that were about to pass their sell by date. We all agreed that strawberry yogurt pops sounded really delicious so with each child holding one popsicle mold in their little hand I slowly poured the yogurt smoothie inside up to the fill line which is clearly outlined on each mold. It was so easy to pop the cap in to seal the mold but I must admit I was a little bit hesitant to set it upside down like the instructions were telling me because my brain was saying "nooo, it might leak" but they didn't leak, not one drop and I would say I fit around 4 ounces of fluid inside. I put the molds into my freezer to spend the night, we would see them in the morning because I had decided to let my children have a popsicle with their breakfast! What a cool mom I am huh? LOL I try!
Morning came, they ate some cereal and then I pulled out the molds. The cap came off very easily, no struggles, then I just gave the mold a slight squeeze and they were ready to be enjoyed. My children asked to sit outside on the picnic table since the warm sunshine was out and it was already 78 degrees out.
I was expecting some kind of spill on their shirts but these performed wonderfully, when they were done chomping and slurping their frozen treats the little bit that melted was easily drinkable from the tube. No spills made this mama very happy indeed, I have lost one too many cute outfits to popsicles. When the kids were done I just popped the molds into the dishwasher and they came out perfectly clean and ready to use again and again.
Kinder-ville does sell a small variety of other items for children and mommies that are made from silicone so be sure to look at their website to find all they have to offer.
What's not to love about Kinder-ville Little Bites Popsicle Molds!
These are made from a non-leaching silicone which is so durable and BPA free. Their tapered design with fluted rim allows drips to drip drop down inside and not down little fingers and arms. Little Bites molds come in fun, bright and enticing colors and are easily washed in the dishwasher. The ridges all around each one makes it easy for little hands to grip. Their size holds the perfect portion for small tummies plus they fit so easily into any drawer because they cannot be broken like the traditional plastic popsicle molds can, they can just squish right into a tight space.
A box of four fun molds will run you right around $17. Kinder-ville's website charges shipping but on Amazon you can get free super saver shipping if you order over $25 worth of items so personally I'd go there.
These are worth the price, they are high quality and just think about how much money you will save on popsicles!
