Stylophora Ice Ball Molds Review


With summer time finally here, there's seriously nothing better than a nice cold drink, right? Well, I was sent a set of these really cute StyloPhora Ice Ball Molds for reviewing purposes. I'd never heard of these prior to this promo, but they looked cool and fun to have at home, especially for my little boy.

My Thoughts on This Product
First I made sure to toss these in the dishwasher before using them. I wanted to make sure they were super clean before using. They were easy to clean this way and stayed intact in the dishwasher since they are dishwasher safe.

I decided to fill each ball with a different liquid, just for fun.

This is what the fill lines on top of one of the molds look like

This is the inside of the mold. I added frozen blueberries in one just for an extra little surprise for my kiddo

I used cranberry juice in the one with berries. It says "no mess" funnel, but I think I poured the juice in just a bit too quickly
You just close the ball securely and then pour the liquid into the funnel, up to the fill lines. 
Then pop into freezer for at least 4 hours.

This is the one filled with cranberry juice

This is what it ended up looking like when I took the mold apart

Filled another one with apple juice

This is what the apple juice one looked like once it was frozen

I filled the last one in with plain water

This is the only one that got a crack down the middle for some reason, but it was still pretty cool looking



This is how it looked in my son's green cup. He thought it was the coolest thing ever!

My son and I found these molds to be pretty fun. He loved that I could fill them with any kind of liquid we wanted to use. I'm thinking of filling them with lemonade and maybe using some kind of thin popsicle sticks or cake pop sticks? Maybe that could work out??? 
I would also love to use them for parties, perhaps in a big punch bowl or just in people's drinks. 
I love how easy they are to use, how easy they are to clean, and that they are BPA free.
As for mess free? Maybe for you. I had a few issues not spilling the liquids I was using but it was probably due to the fact that not only was I pouring quickly but also not just using a faucet where I could control the flow better.
They also don't melt very quickly, so your drinks should stay cool for a pretty long time!

These could also be used for other things in the kitchen or desert molds?? I haven't tried to use them in any other way but I'm sure I can find something else to use them for as well.
