To make a popsicle, all you need is a container to freeze your popsicle base – which could be anything from pudding to fruit juice – and a stick. Popsicle molds have been popping up in all kinds of new shapes and sizes over the past few years, and you can find them in classic shapes and funky ones, such as robots. The standard popsicle stick, on the other hand, is a short, flat stick with rounded ends that has gone almost unchanged for decades. One popsicle maker decided to put a twist on a traditional popsicle by making the stick even more interesting than the pop itself.
The Lollypop Men set comes with a mold to make four complete popsicles with stick figure sticks. The sticks themselves are made of plastic, so they can be washed and reused for many different popsicle batches. The mold makes relatively small popsicles to keep the stick figure proportions right, but the cute factor (and shorter freezing time) will keep your mind off of that. You will, however, have to track down a bag of more traditional popsicle sticks at an art store if it turns out you need them for any arts-and-crafts school projects in the future.
