What is it
The Foam Cone Factory turns your bathroom into an ice -cream parlour! The unit sticks onto the bathroom wall or the sides of the bath with suction pads and only needs a little bubble bath and water to operate – no batteries required.
Kids can concoct their own pretend ice creams simply by dripping a few drops of bubble bath into the cornet at the top, adding water, and pulling the lever. They’ll love watching as the “ice cream” fluffs and bubbles up in the cone before their eyes!
Three flat-bottomed cones are designed to sit steadily on the sides of the bath, ready to add pretend sprinkles with the shaker.

What our experts think
This bath toy really appealed to our testers and parents reported that it provided a welcome distraction when hair washing! It’s a great toy for promoting role play and social interaction, as the children enjoyed serving foamy ice-cream to their parents or siblings. The children also found other uses for the foam: beards, hair, clothing! Pulling the lever to make the foam helps develop hand strength and coordination (known as fine motor control) – younger testers who hadn’t developed this yet struggled to start with, but with support mastered the art of making ‘ice-cream.’ Some of our testers found that the machine slipped off the side of the bath, making it hard to pull the handle.
