The Find: a set of frosty, robot-shaped ice cubes that’ll make anyone look (and feel) cooler
Most of us have friends—or at least acquaintances—who collect vintage tin toy robots (complete with wind-up keys), and this summer we’ve found the perfect gift (or home accessory) for lovers of robots and novelties who are tired of bagged ice or refuse to subscribe to pretentious ice culture. Next time there’s a backyard barbecue (and there will be many), don’t forget about the host—bring him or her this “Chillbots” ice tray by Fred that we found at Studio Brillantine. Really, when we think about it, there’s not much more to say other than, “Have you seen how detailed these things are?” Who wouldn’t want a vintage robot swimming in their Pimm’s Cup? $13.
