Back in July, I wrote a great story about the 4th of July and cooling off with an ice cold ICEE… Mmmm… It really is the perfect way to cool off. The only problem with that story, was that for some CRAZY reason, I never posted it! (Shaking head in crazy, mind semi-gone kind of way…) Unfortunately, that means I never got to share our 4th of July story with you… and even worse is I never got to tell you about the coolest machine in town… the ICEE Deluxe Slushy Machine.
When I was a kid, an ICEE was one of my favorite treats. I loved heading into a store with my mom and seeing that good ol’ polar bear chilling on top of the ICEE machine. The soft icy goodness, the great cherry flavor, and the best spoon-straw EVER – all reasons I LOVED my ICEEs. The Wish Factory is an amazing toy company that has made it possible for you to have the icy cold goodness at home!
The ICEE Deluxe Slushy Machine uses a turn crank system to shave regular ice into cups. Then you add your favorite flavor, and off you go! Since this really shaves ice, it is recommended for ages 8 and up. Even kids that age should probably have some help though.
With a suggested retail price of only $19.99, this toy is a pretty reasonable addition to any family’s entertaining or hot weather fun. The ICEE Slushy Refills (the flavor mix pouches) come in boxes of 3 for $6.99. I love the traditional ICEE flavors, but I bet you could use pure fruit juice over the ice too!
With everything all “Back to School” now, do something to enjoy the last bits of this hot summer weather… like enjoy an ICEE! =)
