Above: Ice Invaders (Fred; $7.99)
There has been a pervading trend at the last few major gift fairs (in both New York and Hong Kong) and that, my friends, is silicone ice cube trays. The material lends itself enviably to the product, as it can be easily molded into anything you can dream up. So with a burgeoning fad in mind (and in the spirit of summer’s imminent arrival), we’ve compiled a list of 21 of the hippest ice cube trays available.
While the good folks at Fred have the market cornered pretty well, there’s always room for new ideas. If you have one, please leave a comment below. Who knows? We might just end up making it (with some profit and credit going your way of course).
*There’s also a bonus World Cup-inspired tray at the end, so make sure you scroll the whole way!
