Disadvantages: expensive, hard to get the ice cubes out
This is another purchase we made in Paperchase thanks to my boyfriend's love of Pac Man and the fact that I wanted another ice cube tray!
The tray is made from a bright yellow, flexible rubber and contains 8 Pac Man's, 4 ghosts (does anyone else find it strange the the Pac Man's far outweigh the ghosts, when it's the opposite in the game?). Fortunately unlike some rubbers, this ice cube tray does not have any unpleasant or artificial smells.
The layout is also fairly well done as you get a decent number and size of ice cubes for the overall size of the tray.
I have found removing the ice cubes from the tray can be a bit of a pain - each ice cube is quite deep as as they are more complicated shapes than simple squares, they tend to get stuck in the tray. To get them out you have to fully invert each individual section. Although the rubber is quite pliable, when it's filled with solid ice, it becomes hard to push inside out and I've found that I have to use both thumbs to get one ice cube out at a time - so it isn't the quickest to use (although I don't think speed is of the essence when it comes to ice cubes) or neither is it suitable really for children to use despite the nature of the product being appealing to them.
Price wise this has quite a costly RRP at £8, especially considering you can get a basic rubber ice cube tray for less than £2 in a supermarket. We purchased this at full price from Paperchase, but it can be bought from amazon for £6.95 including postage.
I would recommend this product for Pac Man fans and anyone who wants to bring a bit of fun to their drinks (good for parties and the like). However it is over priced and the ice cubes aren't the easiest to get out!
