best popsicle molds for DIY?

With the summer heat quickly approaching (or already here in some places!), I'm looking for the best reusable popsicle molds, preferably with reusable sticks. Regular size or smaller kids size.

Any great suggestions? I'd hate to buy a set for a decent cost, and have it cracking after just a few uses.

(and yes, i'm aware i could just use a ice cube tray and some tooth picks but i'm looking for a slightly more young kid holding friendly/eating type)

I have these and also their rocket shaped ones. They're lasting well and come out easily.

I just bought a cheap set from ikea, and it has held up great so far. Perfect size for my 18 month old's hands.

Re: best popsicle molds for DIY?

We had tupperware one's at first and I hated them. they were so hard to open once frozen. Someone recommended these to me and I really like them. If the kids only want half a popsicle they are easy to recap and put back in the freezer. I use them to send pudding and yogurt along in the lunches too. My kids like them better because they don't have a stick where they drip down.

I really like the crayola ones. I found them in the store and wasn't expecting to like them as much as I do. The ice pops come out really easily and they are all made separately so it is easy to use one at a time.

I just got these and tried them yesterday. I made one was just applesauce, the rest were yogurt/banana/orange smoothie. It took a little while for my 2 yo to get the hang of it, but much cleaner than the tupperware molds. This morning she only ate a little bit of the smoothie one, so it was nice to be able to recap. You have to make sure they don't squeeze it too hard to make the pop come out the top. I think she liked it better once thawed a little, like slushie consistency.
