ChillFactor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker – Tutti Fruity

We were intrigued to see what the ChillFactor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker – Tutti Fruity was all about when we were asked to test it out recently.

ChillFactor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker

The ChillFactor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker is aimed at children aged 3 years + and according to the packaging it makes a slushy fruit drink in seconds!  How could that work?

The Slushy Maker comes complete with a straw which doubles as a spoon.

The first thing to do with your ChillFactor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker is to take it apart, wash it and put it back together.  There are clear instructions in the box and the unit comes apart easily.

Once you’ve put the slushy maker back together (without the lid) and pop the slushy maker in the freezer for 4-6 hours.  Yes, a bit of forward planning might be required with impatient children.

The instructions tell you to leave the Slushy Maker in the freezer for 4-6 hours at -10 deg C and to check if the ice pack walls are frozen.  If not, then they suggest leaving over night.  I wasn’t actually sure what temperature my freezer works to and Monkey wanted to see results.  So for a first attempt we went for 4 hours, the walls seemed fairly solid but we could probably have left it for longer.

Once removed from the freezer it was time to pick a juice. My 5 year old Monkey has never had a slushy drink so I was really interested to see what he would make of his first experience.

He decided on his juice and we filled the ChillFactor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker to the top of the ice pack inner sleeving.

Now for the magic, and I have to be honest, I was slightly sceptical.  How could this turn to a slushy drink in a minute??!  Monkey couldn’t understand what was about to happen at all.

All you need to do is screw the lid back on and then squeeze the sides of the slushy maker. Within a minute you start to see the drink transform and Monkey and I were both, quite frankly amazed.

Once we had our slushy, it was time for the taste test.  What would Monkey make of his first ever slushy?

Instant hit! He loved it and demanded that I washed it out as soon as he’d finished so he could have another slushy the next day.  The ChillFactor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker is really easy to clean – please note that the silicone cup (outer skin) and the cooling pack are hand washable only.  We don’t have a dishwasher anyway, so not an issue for me to remember.

This time I left the ChillFactor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker in the freezer overnight and it definitely made a difference – our Cranberry slushy was superb.

One very happy little school boy.

The dual straw/spoon is great but because of the spoon section it’s difficult to drink the slushy to the bottom of the cup.  But, my son has asked for a slushy every day since we received our Tutti Fruity ChillFactor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker arrived, so I think it’s safe to say he approves.

There really is no mess, it’s so easy and we are converted.

The ChillFactor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker Tutti Fruity is available in Orange, Blue, Pink and Purple for £12.99 from the Character On-Line website.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
