One of our ideas is for a reusable ice cream cone that bends so you can eat the ice cream as you eat it (manually bend rubber) so you can use wash and repeat! This also prevents holes in the bottom of your ice cream cone. Our first site Bendy Icecream Site 1 has a similar idea but, they push ice cream up from the bottom while we fold ours down from the top. Our second site Bendy Ice Cream Site 2 had another similar idea except instead of folding you drink the melted ice cream from an opening on the bottom. Our third site Bendy Icecream Cone Site 3 had a similar idea be cause the cone is reusable but this one is mechanic. I don't think this is a good idea because you will have to wash it after using it.

Our last idea is the ultimate supplies box. Our first site, Supplies Box 1 but that just sold supplies. And didn't have a box or anything. Our second site was Supplies Box 2 but it was just a cardboard box that had sports gear in it. Our last site was Supplies Box 3 but it had some bad reviews so we are thinking to make it way diffrent so we have good reviews.

  • If you could start over, what would you do differently? Would you change your design/materials/size/etc.?
