I love these "polar ice" molds from the Japanese site Monos; they resemble penguins and polar bears perched on icebergs, and are balanced so they stay upright in your drink.

Polar Ice [monos.co.jp]
I remember polar bears. And penguins. And ice-bergs.
How very Silent Running of you.
I would probably throw down some cash on this immediately if it were available in the U.S.
at 1500 yen / 20$ apiece and the need to purchase at least 4 or 5 (are you planning to have a polar daiquiri session w/your frineds, or gulp ‘em down hermit-esque in silent admiration ?) , it’s cheaper to throw the money at some “save the poles” fundraiser.
your choice: improve your drinks or your karma ;)
it’s 20$ the pair
I would gulp ‘em down hermit-esque in silent admiration. Stick them in a White Russian and call me the Dude. Or El Duderino, if you’re not into that whole brevity thing.
This is the first one of those “silly ice cube molds” that I would consider buying.
Those are just beautiful! And actually pretty poignant, too. But mostly it’s the geek in me that is tickled pink (I want to try how stabile those ice cubes are!). So, I’ll take both of those and the Han Solo in Carbonite, please!
Yes. Want. Will pay.
Someone buy a bunch and put em on ebay for me to buy. My Japanese isn’t so good. ;)
I also would buy RIGHT NOW, am not able to correspond in Japanese.
I want one of these, but with Grandma on an ice flow.
