Best Bet: Prepara’s Super Scoopers

Killjoy Park Slope parents aside, who doesn’t like ice cream? Moreover, what mom or dad doesn’t love a shortcut? Prepara’s Super Scoopers ($10 for four at Zabar’s, 2245 Broadway, at 80th St.; 212-787-2000) simplify the ice cream–frozen yogurt–Tofutti-dishing process by functioning as both a scoop and no-spoon-required serving vehicle. The loop handle is easy for pint-size hands to grip, and its deep ladle shape minimizes spills. Plus, a portable bonfire log, fast-drying IdeaPaint, and more in this week's issue. [NYM]
