Nothing screams summer like a homemade ice lolly. So as temperatures catapult upwards, what better way to prepare yourself for another sweltering summer than with this neat collection of ice pop moulds from Crate & Barrel.

The moulds come in a set of six and are designed to effortlessly slot into an accompanying stand. This ensures that they sit upright and can be easily removed, one free-standing lolly at a time. The handles have built-in sticks and drip guards to minimise the sticky mess element inherent in ice pop consumption. Meanwhile, insulated plastic sleeves keep the lollies cold once they are out of the freezer. The moulds are made from BPA-free polypropylene and, thankfully, are dishwasher safe. "The mould is amazing and I haven't had a problem at all with leakage. Very sturdy, easy to use and clean, and you can't beat the price," says one online review.

We just love that the handles and stand both come in bright yellow. Even the cutesy, canary yellow box with its colourful ice lolly graphics makes us feel all bright and summery. If this doesn't bring out the kid in you, nothing will.
