Shark Fin Ice Tray

Shark Fin Ice Tray (Image courtesy Play.com)
By Andrew Liszewski

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a clever ice cube mold that truly brings something new and unique to your next party. And don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as sipping a drink that’s been chilled by a LEGO minifig or Han Solo frozen in carbonite, but these shark fin ice cubes are pretty great. They’re engineered like an iceberg so that the fin part always stays upright in your glass, just visible above the beverage line, while the rest of the ice cube remains submerged. And for just over $8 from Play.com, how can you go wrong?

    Um, How exactly do you set this in the freezer to balance?

    It probably balances on the shark fins. Erm?

  • Joe

    uh i dont see this shit working

    I like it! It would go great for a themed evening of watching the Jaws movies (even that horrid one with Dennis Quaid).

    To Yunie below, errr, the fins are proportionally balanced on either side…..hello!

    now the one in the Bahamas with Michael Caine…ugh!

  • theSutty

    wouold the fins not break off as you were ejecting the ice from the mould?

    I think they would.

    Yes, there are indeed several logistical issues, however the fundamental premise is interesting.

    I approve.

    It's made of cookware grade teflon. I'm sure it balances just fine and it's flexible to pop out the cubes when done.

    How about some penis shaped ones for those who love to suck ice?

    I love new clever stuff. Excellent

  • msisaac

    It would be easy to get the cubes out of the tray. Like any other ice cube tray, a couple seconds resting in some hot water will loosen all the cubes so they just fall right out.

    I would be more worried about guests stabbing the roof of their mouth with the fin, or some other sharp fin-related accident.

    Still…this is awesome.

  • James

    If someone mamaged to cut themselves with an ice cube, I'd be too busy ROFLing to help/

  • Liz

    they only give you 5 in a tray? that sucks, i think i could fit 5 of these in one cup!

  • j. frank parnell

    pretty cool!

    stab in the eye anyone?

  • woot

    I farted.

  • DICK151

    Who in the hell puts one or two ice cubes up in they're drink, anyways?? And only 5 cubes/tray……I'd need like, 20 trays just to keep ice in the box! Fuckin Gay…

  • yorktank

    Indeed! How dare a novelty shark fin ice cube tray not conform to my daily ice needs? Oh, the humanity!

    I'm guessing the bigger base will force the fin to stick up out of the water, kinda like an iceberg.

  • i hate you.

    still the #1 least funny joke on the internet.

    These are extremely dangerous. Next time there's a real shark in your drink you'll think it's just an ice cube. The company that makes this ice tray will get sued left, right and centre when people start accidentally swallowing real sharks.

    you could probably just put it on sonme frozen vegetable to keep it from falling over.

  • gerard

    i can imagine someone getting really sued cause a shark fin ice cube was lodged into someone's mouth. oh wait it would melt, wouldn't it?

  • b

    ???are you fucking retarded

  • Tyms

    hehehe

  • Caz

    There are more then enough fins to balance kind of like a three legged table, if positioned correctly it will just stand on its own.

  • Mark

    These won't float this way…

  • harry truman

    My name is Harry S. Truman, and I’m commenting from beyond the grave. I have come here today to beg of your forgiveness for commanding the Enola Gay to drop an atomic bomb over Japan. And speaking of gay, I really love to have thick rod slammed into my hot presidential love pit.

  • woot 2

    o ya well i farted and burped…………..wait make that another fart

  • ANON

    DO WANT

  • KJSdhlf

    LOVE IT!

  • Billy

    hahaha thats wicked. I was thinking the same thing.
    Yunie:”Erm how does this table stand up on like 4 legs or whatever?”
    b: “You are fucking retarded, Yunie!”

    that's so cool!

    interesting article

  • Brianne

    haha :) i wouldn't buy it but thats pretty great.

    legendary :)

  • L.

    Hmmm the fact that they only included a picture instead of a real photo of them in action tells me that they're a much more impressive concept than a reality. I'm no expert but logic seems to say that the “fin” part would melt too quickly to really be a novelty…

  • Jstema

    WANT!!!!

  • anitalite ;-)_

    @ mostawesomepersonintheuniverse:
    I think your name is legendary. ;-)_

  • anitalite ;-)_

    @ msisaac:
    your paragraph one:
    Thank God you figured it out for the rest of us, I was beginning to give up on mankind's intellect.
    your paragraph two:
    BUT are you nuts? Now I'm wondering about the intellect of human kind again. Why ever would a fin stab the roof of the mouth? How would it get there and why? And if it did, it's just ice, for crying out loud. Stop being so over protective and let us have our shark fin cubes and let us live!

  • anitalite ;-)_

    @ gerard:
    now you're getting it… (ice would probably melt in a mouth that is somewhere near 98 degrees)

  • anitalite ;-)_

    LMAO cjsavvy! That's a good one. I think they do have those, btw. Check out your local “toy store” for them or you can probably find them on a web site that sells “toys”.

  • jen

    wow that is creative, fun for a beach party!

  • adam

    whats dumber is that you have no idea how to spell dumb

  • adam

    are you there are 3 legged tables

  • adam

    yeah they probably would

  • http://acidhedz.com acidhedz

    Priceless. They would be great for Halloween.

  • Smitty

    What's even dumber is I don't think you got the Jaws reference.

    cool

  • Anonymice

    damn. adam, you're such a loser.

  • Anonymice

    yeah that was my thought as well.
    They could have made the fins a bit smaller I guess

  • http://www.twitter.com/yellowscone Aero Kitty

    No no, you get a knife and slit the mold off. Silly.

  • http://www.twitter.com/yellowscone Aero Kitty

    *inhumanity*

    Also I think the point is use cold punch. If you put too much ice, the sharks will act like betas and kill each other. Sadness.

    That would be okay for kids.

    I tried ordering them, Turns out you can't order from Play.com if you are from America, is that going to change anytime soon?

  • qumal

    that is adorable

    Hmm good point.

    Scary. I hate sharks!!

    I meant that for 'photoshopped' on real objects. That whole fad was started by that 1 a**hole.

  • Spike

    great idea.. make your sharks go swirl and swirl in rounding motion.. and your drink stirs up..
