And that review reminds me of how my ex wife would hark back to how she’d always wanted a Mr Frosty as a kid but her parents wouldn’t get her one. Fast forward to our blissful marriage and our second Xmas together, I managed to track one down on eBay and paid over the odds. Come xmas day I was so excited to see her face when she opened the wrapping paper. I should have realised there and then that my marriage was doomed, as she lay into me for buying her something so ridiculous. Oh the anger in her face.

I don’t blame you Mr Frosty, I blame myself.

This was my experience of Mr Frosty back in Christmas 1992, my dad snapped the handle off trying to work it.

Bailey's ice pops anyone
I was just about to say I always wanted one of these but never got one so I may buy one! Then notice I'm not the only one!
Buying it now as I was denied this as a kid. So there mum I got it (albeit 33 years later) so nanana .. I do know she doesn't read this .. I would screenshot it but then I would have to spend 3 hours on the phone to explain how to use email I'm not ready for the flood effect of that.

Still £22 in our local store
I am still waiting for Father Christmas to bring me a Chemistry Set, some Meccano and an Evil Knievil stuntbike...
Bought one last year for the kids lying hardly used, it's just basically a cheese grater inside a snowman
I still have my one from the 90's my mum got me when I was young, I could never stand the sound of the grater on the ice, the thought of it makes me shiver! By the time she had a decent amount of grated ice in the bottom section, a lot of it had melted... was nice to watch her struggle though He sits in my shed now, with that smile of his and his little spoons that he holds...
Looks like it's not national so good luck finding one.
The Christmas gift i never got. I'm in my thirties now and i still want one.......
I was denied this as a kid. We had to make do with ice age lolly makers we got as a cereal prize.32986885-aKDUA.jpg

So true!!
OMG my little one got an Olaf (from Frozen, for those of you living under a rock in blissful ignorance) Sno-cone maker for Xmas last year and it is actually brutally difficult to make anything. I was going to get her this as she does love a slush puppy - then I read the review - turns out poor Olaf isn't some shoddy Disney knock off after all (well it is but you know what I mean). Gravel in a beef mincer, that's absolute genius.
These are as crap as they were 40 years ago, do not buy under any circumstances. I've seen one used recently; I watched a middle aged dad of not slight build wrestle with one to rescue the girls, it was an embarrassing deja vu.
Have to concur these are a nightmare to use! Really don't waste your money! That review is genius though
"Thank you, Percy."

Shame the new versions are rubbish though compared to the 80s version I had - I suspect it's a health and safety thing after some kid tried to turn his fingers into slush but there's definitely a lot more effort involved with the new ones for much less reward, rendering it pretty pointless.

You also don'y get the cool branded paper hat or plastic cups, but thankfully the weird sachets of powered flavour used to fill Percy up are no longer - good job as it would probably have been healthier to add crystal meth for flavour.
I must be one of the lucky ones (as I got one as a present back in the 80s). The fact that I don't remember attempting to use it more than once suggests it was rubbish then and probably more rubbish now.

I suppose £11 might still be worth spending to get a good picture of a smiling child, and to teach them that all that glitters is, sadly, not gold.
Always wanted one as a young kid but never got one 😔

I’m right there with you on this
Put ice cubes into a sandwich bag. Wrap in towel and bash it against the kitchen worktop. Pour resulting ice into mr frosty and turn the handle.

This makes it a bit easier!

I hope that was the reason for your divorce
