I dropped one of the molds today while taking them out of the freezer. They dropped probably about 4 feet, and the stick part of the cone broke off. I imagine that most plastic containing frozen liquid will break when hit at a right angle. As I consider this "user error" and not a defect in the product, I will leave it a 5-star review. However, I will probably not buy another set since I can (and probably will) drop these again in the future.

I've been eyeing the Zoku (Zoku Single Quick Pop Maker, Purple) that I'd seen at Williams-Sonoma, but I wasn't sure how much I'd use an ice pop maker, so I decided to test out this less expensive Tovolo mold first to see if I'd use it a lot.
Primarily, I use it to freeze yogurt.
It does seem small compared to many other molds. With a 6-oz. cup of yogurt, I'm able to fill 3 molds. They are not extra-large, so I know there won't be leftovers from my 3-year old who can't eat a whole big popsicle yet. Also, I like the small portion-control aspect so I don't over-indulge.
1. Big grip for a toddler
2. Big drip-catcher (cone is hollow inside to catch a lot of drip)
3. Slides out easily
4. Makes small popsicles
5. BPA-free plastic
6. Cleans easily in dishwasher (dishwasher-safe)
Don't have any so far.
The popsicles slide out very easily when you give a few gentle twists side to side. This might be because yogurt doesn't freeze as hard as water/juice does. If you are using juice, I read on Martha Stewart that if you add more sugar to your mixture, popsicles will slide out more easily. If you don't want to use refined sugar, perhaps try alternatives like honey or raw sugar.
I read a review here that says it's tough to clean by hand. I can see why, there are indeed many crevices and spaces. I wash mine in a dishwasher and it comes out clean every time. Very easy.
All in all a very nice purchase for a reasonable price. I am still contemplating buying the Zoku popsicle maker...these Tovolo molds are great, but there are only 4 popsicles, and I would like some more. I'll update this post with a quick comparison if I do end up buying the Zoku.
FYI in case any other mothers are interested in making healthier alternative ice cream for their little one:
2 cups plain yogurt
1 cup freshly squeezed/blended juice (fruits and/or veggies)
1/3 cup pure maple
Mix all ingredients, put in Tovolo pop mold, freeze, and enjoy! :)
*These make small pops. One 8oz yogurt filled three cups (when leaving the instructed 1/4" room at the top).
*If you follow their instructions and leave that 1/4" room at the top for expansion, you get unfinished-looking ice cream cones (see user photos). It's not a big deal, it's just an FYI. And honestly, with yogurt, it didn't look like it expanded much so you could probably fill them closer to the top.
*I love how they stick into the base to stay upright. I was worried it would take up a lot of freezer space but it doesn't.
*Getting the frozen pops out was pretty easy. I just gripped half in each hand and gave it a bit of a twist and it popped right out. Your little one might not be able to do it, but an older kid or an adult should have no problem.
*They do sit nicely on a flat surface if your kid decides they don't want to eat it all at once, but they are a smidge wobbly so you have to take care to be just a tiny bit gentle when setting it down (but my 3yo had no problem). Again, just an FYI.
So far, I would recommend these...as long as you aren't looking to make HUGE pops of any kind.
