Here’s what Mom Fuse “Mommy Reviewer”, Kristie, from This Side of Eternity had to say about the Freeze & Play Ice Cream Maker

Review: Freeze & Play Ice Cream Maker

Do yourself a flavor…have a ball making ice cream!

I couldn’t wait to try out the Freeze and Play Ice Cream Maker!  I’m not sure who was more excited me, or my kids. I had heard from several people that home made ice cream tastes so much better than store ought and had always wanted to taste the difference for myself.

So, today was the day! I gathered all the ingredients to make vanilla ice cream. As you can see from the photo, all we needed was some Half & Half, vanilla, and sugar. I love knowing exactly what went into the sweet treat I gave my family.

Maybe I should tell you a little about the Play & Freeze. First of all it is a very unique way to make ice cream. It requires absolutely no electricity which is why it is perfect to take and make anywhere.

The Play & Freeze Ice Cream Maker is a ball. Literally.
It has an opening on each end. In one side of the ball you fill it with ice and rock salt. In the other end you add all the ingredients you want.
We decided to keep it simple and stick with plain vanilla. This way each kid could add their own topping after the ice cream was made.
It took about 15 minutes of the kids each taking turns shaking the ball before we had homeade ice cream. It was a lot of fun. But, the fun didn’t end there.
Once the ice cream was ready, each of the kids chose how to eat it. My son loves plain vanilla, but my daughter wanted to add chocolate and caramel to hers.

Both of them said it was THE BEST ice cream they had ever had. I have to agree!
The Play & Freeze received the Seal of Approval from The National Parenting Center in 2008. You can read their full review here.
This was a huge hit at my house today. In fact we’d have made another batch if I had more Half & Half in the fridge. I can totally see this becoming a regular part of our outdoor activities. It would be perfect for camping, boating, picnics, and pretty much anywhere you can imagine.
You can purchase the Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker (The Ice Cream Ball) through Amazon HERE!
