Zoku Quick Pop Maker!

What kid doesn’t love popsicles? There’s just so much fun involved in eating something that melts before you’re done, something that comes in so many flavors, something that can drip down your arm, something that *must* be eaten when it’s 30 above out, and something that says Summer Holidays!
