Dripstik

Where was this ingenious little gizmo last Saturday, when we really needed it? The Dripstik catches all the drips from melting summertime treats -- popsicles on one end and ice cream cones on the other.

Even better, if you've got one of those kids who thinks, erroneously, that it's possible to lay one's frozen confection down now and pick it up and resume eating twenty minutes later, the Dripstik allows him or her to at least stand the cone up before wandering away. While the device doesn't have magical treat-preserving properties, at least there's less mess for you to clean up.

According to the manufacturer, the Dripstik can hold virtually any shape and size of cone or treat-on-a-stick. Made of dishwasher safe polypropylene, it's available in six colors.

In the U.S.: $3.89 each at Amazon
In Canada: $6.50 each at Mortimer Snodgrass
