Play & Freeze Ice Cream Maker lets you play with your food


ice-cream-maker.jpgIf you’re a member of the same demographic group as me then chances are you remember the jingle from the old TV advert for Mr Frosty, an ice-lolly maker aimed at kids. Despite bold claims about Mr Frosty being both fun, and having the ability to make treats for everyone, you probably never owned one as your parents were too stingy to buy it for you.

Well I’ve got some good news for you. Not only were your parents acting in your best interest after all (the reviews on Amazon all suggest Mr Frosty was actually rubbish), but in case you’ve forgotten, you’re now a young, urbane professional with a disposable income, putting this sort of tat well within reach – and all it has taken was a 15 year wait. The even better news is that technology has progressed even further since you were a kid: why bother making ice cubes when you can make ice cream with the Play & Freeze Ice Cream Maker?

Don’t get me wrong, I loath it when food is described as being “fun” (I’m looking at you, Coco Pops Straws), but this Ice Cream Maker does look genuinely enjoyable. Stick the ingredients into the plastic ball, then roll it, shake it and throw it around until the ice cream inside is just how you want it. It also supports a number of upgrades and add-ons, expanding functionality. It’s compatible with your basic cream, sugar and vanilla, but will also support the likes of micro-SD chocolate chips and cookies.

The Play & Freeze Ice Cream Maker retails at a cool £19.95.
