How COOL is this???

Hi! It's C again! I know we seem to go for ages without a post, and then all of a sudden we hit you with a couple in the same week :)

I recently wrote a post on the Green is Her New Blog site about "Green Gadgets for Summer Fun". Randy from Algonquin Outfitters left a comment and mentioned other "green gadgets" that are available at Algonquin Outfitters. One of the gadgets that caught my attention was the ball that makes ice cream! How cool is that?Although summer is coming to a close, who says you can't have ice cream year-round? I'm not sure if this is the same ice cream ball that Algonquin Outfitters has, but I found this one online. The Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker is portable and compact, so you can make ice cream anywhere. This is great for picnics, family BBQ parties, and camping! There is no electricity required (except for a little human power). All that is required is rock salt and ice in one compartment and in the other compartment, cream, sugar and vanilla (or whatever ice cream mix you prefer).To make your ice cream, all you need to do is shake or roll the ball. Have a blast and toss or pass the ball around with the family. After a little fun, you can enjoy some homemade ice cream!

Thanks for sharing this product with us, Randy!

Hey C, you got it! That's the Ice cream ball we carry, it's way cool, toss it around between some friends for a while and then stop for a refreshing break of yummy ice cream.

We really believe in living green. At AO we paddle, hike, canoe, bike, camp, skateboard, etc. All fun activities that create little pollution.

We have hand crank flash lights and radios the require no batteries and lots of other green gadgets.

Thanks for featuring the icecream ball on your website.

Thanks again, Randy!

Those hand crank flashlights are neat. My brother-in-law got one for Christmas.

Are you guys going to put up an online store on your website or do people have to go to your store in person to make any purchases. It would be great if we could make some online purchases...especially since I live all the way on Manitoulin Island!

I heard about this! Almost got one at Sur la table but got too cheap.
A friend of mine who has it says it is a blast to kick around :)

I have never heard of this, but what a fun idea! I give it a 10 out of 10.
