If your kids are fans of those ridiculously overpriced slushy drinks (and let's face it, what kid doesn't love expensive, lurid sugar-laden treats) then you might do well to invest in one of these slushy makers which are £12.49 (50p cheaper than usual) at Amazon right now.
Suitable for children aged 3 and upwards, the Chill Factor Squeeze cup slushy maker enables you to make home-made slushies from your favourite drink, without needing ice or a blender. All you have to do is put it in the freezer, wait, then add your preferred chilled drink and squeeze. Also included is a 'spoonstraw' for that authentic Slushy experience. It's also transportable so you can enjoy your slushy anywhere once made, and you can create slushies from any chilled drinks - juices, chocolate milk, soda and more.
But bear in mind that one reviewer had this to say:
"First saw this on TV and ordered one for my 4 year old daughter. Thought it was a bit expensive for a cup, and when I read the instructions I realised it has to go in the freezer for six hours! So if you have an impatient child put it in freezer before you tell them you've got one."
Hmm, now I wonder if I could make a frozen margarita in this...?
