AK Frozen Bullets are either the most perfect way to commit a crime and leave no evidence, or a wicked way to cool a drink. Not that you’d ever add an ice cube to your beer, but the silver bullet probably couldn’t get any worse if you did.

7. Frozen Smiles

    those bone chillers rule – i want them for my next pirate party.

    I need to get the princess star ones for my niece, maybe freeze up some strawberry kiwi koolaid so we get pretty pink star ice!

  2. 2 nana Sep 9th, 2009 at 9:56 AM

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i gotta have thoseeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  3. 3 Fjord83 Sep 10th, 2009 at 10:12 AM

    I actually have the Fred Cool Shooters (the first item on the list). They are pretty cool, but unfortunately I have yet to see the ice come out that clear and perfectly shaped, also when you put a liquid in the cup a flim floats up. I’m not sure what it is but I really don’t want to drink it. I’ve tried using filtered water, tap water, bottled water, I’ve tried soaking the tray in hot water, running it through 8 cycles in the dishwasher, it doesn’t matter. The film remains. :(

  4. 4 CC Sep 10th, 2009 at 1:02 PM

    @Fjord
    I have heard that boiling the water before you freeze it will remove dissolved air and minerals that make the ice opaque. I have not tried this, but it’s somewhere to start.

  5. 5 devans00 Sep 10th, 2009 at 10:41 PM

    I really like the Jewels and AK Frozen Bullets molds. Great ideas.

  6. 6 Phil E. Drifter Sep 11th, 2009 at 9:17 AM

    I’ve stumbled over this page or at least the same images on different pages a few times. Not judging anyone but I imagine the ‘ribs’ of those ‘fish bones’ ice cubes would be brittle and break off a lot when cracking the cubes out of the tray.

    Also, as per ‘The Advisor’ in a recent article in Playboy, it’s impossible to get truly clear ice cubes (like the ‘precious stones’ above) because of the way water freezes; when you see perfectly clear, nicely rounded ice cubes in magazine pictures… they’re not ice cubes. They’re imitation ice cubes made out of plastic of some sort. Purely for the photo ops.

    Anyway, nice. I’d have to say the sports bottle ice-bars are probably the most useful, the rest are just unique.

  7. 7 Tanya Sep 11th, 2009 at 1:23 PM

    These are way cool, I love them! Especially the bone ones, I thinking they’ll be great for Halloween since it’s just around the corner. Thanks for sharing.

  8. 8 Markus Sep 19th, 2009 at 5:01 AM

    nice ice cubes!

  10. 10 Eric Sep 19th, 2009 at 9:04 PM

    Working at a lego brand retail store i can say confidently that lego does sell the ice cube trays. or at least that my store does. and i’ve bought two of them and love them.

    i also need to find a gin and titonic ice cube trays somewhere.

    Which Store sells the Lego Ice Cube Trays? If you have a link to them online, feel free to post it here.

  12. 12 Kayla Fay Sep 20th, 2009 at 1:50 PM

    These ice cubes are way cool – um – no pun intended. There has to be a science project idea in there somewhere.

  13. 13 Ari Sep 22nd, 2009 at 12:19 PM

    To get ice that clear, the water has to be agitated constantly while freezing. I saw it on some ice sculpture show.

  14. 14 lolita Sep 23rd, 2009 at 11:17 PM

    really cute ice cube…

  15. 15 gratis geld Sep 26th, 2009 at 3:04 AM

    Nice list. The AK-47 bullets are so cool!

  16. 16 Kurai Sep 27th, 2009 at 9:28 PM

    To get perfectly clear ice cubes you should: Use distilled water. Boil it once and let it cool completely. Boil it again then cool it then pour it into the trays and it should be close to perfect.

  17. 17 Sally Ann Fairchild Sep 28th, 2009 at 6:50 AM

    What terrific ideas!

  18. 18 michaleena Sep 28th, 2009 at 3:51 PM

    love the stone cold!! Do they really come out that cool looking? I can’t get my regular cubes to come out perfect?? Oh well my niece will love the princess ones!!

  21. 21 Jennifer Stinnett Oct 3rd, 2009 at 5:12 PM

    oohh… you had me at cool shooters!! Those rock … vodka would be my choice! Thanks for a great, fun post!

  22. 22 cat Oct 4th, 2009 at 1:31 AM

    I have the fish bones ice cubes and they don’t break off when you take them out because the icetray itself is a flexible rubber material. They’re great!

  23. 23 wyld_iz Oct 4th, 2009 at 3:39 AM

    Well, they would certainly be a real “ice breaker” at any party. (I just couldn’t resist.)

  24. 24 smart ass Oct 5th, 2009 at 7:01 PM

    I was going to write some smart ass remark about using Google to find the Lego tray, but lost interest.

    I own the Frozen Smiles tray, a store here sells some others Fred & Friends stuff as well, thinking about getting more frozen smiles as there are only 4 in a tray

  27. 27 Phil E. Drifter Oct 8th, 2009 at 4:06 PM

    13 Those Shark Fin ice cubes would NEVER float that way; the fins would invariably cause the cube to tip over and then the fin would stay below the surface.

  28. 28 lanelle Bogue Oct 21st, 2009 at 7:37 AM

    We are wholesalers and sell to pharmacies, etc. We were interested in the cool cubes. Do you have a price for distributors? Please reply

  29. 29 Martin Nov 23rd, 2009 at 8:23 PM

    13 : They don’t show it in a blue drink because it would be real hard to see… unless you put some color in your water before you freeze it.

  30. 30 linkslife Dec 4th, 2009 at 1:29 AM

    Wow so cool frozen arts

    Hey Buddy! I LOVE your hot ice cube treys. they r like sooo freakin “cool” if you know what I mean. Well, I want you all to have a delicious day every day of your freakin miserable lives :D

  35. 35 ~L.K. Jan 1st, 2010 at 1:03 PM

    I have Fred’s Dinosaur Fossiliced and Titonic trays. The ice cube Titanics are very hard to get out, due to the smoke-stacks. However it’s absolutely worth it. The dinosaurs are very, very easy to remove. All look wonderful, but they do not come out absolutely clear, like the photo.

  36. 36 Mauritius Resto Jan 19th, 2010 at 11:05 PM

    Now that is really cool. This is the first time I’m seeing such a great variety of ice cubes. The shooters are really cute as well as the jewels. Top class share. I’m looking forward to buy the shooters. You have any idea where I can get it?

  37. 37 onemoregadget Jan 19th, 2010 at 11:07 PM

    Yup! All the items can be purchased through the links at the bottom of the post. Also, check out the OneMoreGadget shop at http://www.onemoregadget.com/shop to find other ice cubes as well.

  39. 39 Mary Jo Jan 23rd, 2010 at 5:15 PM

    It is the first time that shark fins protruding out of water made me laugh out loud!

  40. 40 Che Guavera Jan 30th, 2010 at 11:24 AM

    Would you be offended if I told you that you have a nice ice?

  41. 41 Gadget5 Jan 30th, 2010 at 11:14 PM

    OMG I wonder why I am just using plain cubes till now when I can get these :D wicked and must say it will increase the taste of any drink.

  42. 42 UK Foodie Feb 1st, 2010 at 4:15 AM

    I love the lego ones and the shark fins, very cool!

  43. 43 Evo Mar 3rd, 2010 at 1:01 PM

  47. 47 Jillian Entertainment Apr 8th, 2010 at 9:41 PM

    Wow! Who knew all the products available to make cool ice cubes. I let my daughter pick out one for her birthday. She liked the dinosaur bones. Looks very cool!

  48. 48 Matt May 14th, 2010 at 9:14 AM

    I ended up getting a few of these.

    Suspect a few people are wondering how to make “clear” ice, instead of white cloudy ice….

    Filter the water
    boil it in a pan
    let it cool
    boil it again
    let it cool
    freeze

    If you have one of those filter kettles, you will find it doesn’t quite work (but does to a point), it’s probably due to impurities lurking in the kettle.

    The Jewels look cool initially but quickly end up looking like normal ice cubes.

  49. 49 pandora May 27th, 2010 at 7:58 AM

    Just wanted to say that I’ve used those “perfect ice cube bags” that you fill up and freeze, then pull the bag apart and you have 24 ice cubes. Those bags really work the way the say they will, and if you don’t have any regular ice trays, and need cubes, these bags are great to have on hand. Plus, you can store the unused cubes right in the bag in your freezer to keep them from absorbing any odors in the freezer.

  50. 50 YL Jun 23rd, 2010 at 5:44 AM

    haha, they are cool!

  51. 51 stephanie Jul 18th, 2010 at 5:43 PM

  58. 58 Gabe Jan 21st, 2011 at 9:10 AM

    To make clear icecubes, fill up the tray with hot water instead of cold!

  59. 59 joannalyne Jan 23rd, 2011 at 7:00 AM

    those ice trays are cool!

  60. 60 VAD Jan 28th, 2011 at 2:42 PM

    The way to make completely clear ice cubes: warm water 90 degrees or more. The air in water to make it cold is a different species. It’s impossible with cold water, but not with hot, or warm.

  61. 61 Pavle Jan 31st, 2011 at 10:48 AM

    awesome work :) insane detail level…
    i cant understand why this doesnt have a cg award yet?

    The ice cube with the shark fin design is what I liked the most.

  65. 65 Shagel Feb 24th, 2011 at 9:21 AM

    I feel like this is something IKEA should sell. Anyone seen them there?

  66. 66 Cheese Feb 24th, 2011 at 11:32 AM

    Cool ice cube list. That first one looks like it could be potentially quite messy though.

  67. 67 Icemom Mar 9th, 2011 at 10:16 AM

    I have a reverse osmosis water filter system. Ice cubes freeze perfectly clear.

  68. 68 Daniel White Mar 11th, 2011 at 7:23 AM

    Nice little list. Quite enjoy them all! Wouldn’t mind doing a few shots of rum from the cool shooters. :P

  69. 69 slim dream Mar 23rd, 2011 at 9:23 AM

    well this is truly a creative thing to have just to make drinking fun haha! “forget about being thirsty i just want a cup of juice for the ice cubes.” The shark one is awesome!

  74. 74 Ryan M Apr 8th, 2011 at 5:02 PM

    You can get ice to freeze clear without any bubbles if you can keep it vibrating while it is cooling and freezing. This is how the ice for ice sculptors is made.

  75. 75 Jason Apr 16th, 2011 at 4:31 PM

    Frozen Bullets ! Cool.

  76. 76 Sam Orchard May 20th, 2011 at 3:26 PM

    There’s nothing quite like drinking a shot from an ice shot-glass.

  77. 77 HaydenBrook May 22nd, 2011 at 8:45 AM

    I make dichroic fused glass jewelry that looks like diamonds and ice cubes…. but they don’t function in the amazing way that these ice cubes trays do. Eye candy, really. My favorite here is the denture teeth. People are so creative~! http://haydenbrook.com/home.html

  78. 78 Ottlite Jul 12th, 2011 at 1:17 PM

    Super cool ideas! I love the funny designs!

  79. 79 Motivation Jul 22nd, 2011 at 4:01 AM

    Amazing stuff but bad for me as these are not available here in my country.

  80. 80 Frosty Feb 10th, 2012 at 3:43 PM

    Freeze hot water – you get clear ice
    freeze cold water – you get cloudy ice

    It works, try it – no need for boiling, etc.

  81. 81 Kathy Feb 15th, 2012 at 2:35 PM

    These are way cool, I love them!

  82. 82 Connie Mar 11th, 2012 at 10:23 AM

    I love the princess wands!

    Ich muss sagen, so viel wie ich las, was Sie zu sagen hatte, ich konnte nicht helfen, aber das Interesse verlieren nach einer Weile genossen. Es ist, als wenn Sie hatte einen wunderbaren Griff um das Thema, aber Sie vergessen haben, Ihren Lesern gehören. Vielleicht sollten Sie sich über diese von weit mehr als 1 Winkel denken. Oder vielleicht sollte man nicht verallgemeinern so viel. Es ist besser, wenn Sie über das, was andere können, um zu sagen, anstatt gerade auf dem Weg für eine Reaktion aus dem Bauch, um das Thema zu denken. Denken Sie über eine entsprechende Einstellung Ihrer persönlichen Denkprozess und gibt andere, die diese den Vorteil des Zweifels lesen kann.
