Dry Ice Igloo Blocks

big toy for little builders
  [vote for,

Take home this car-filling bag of Styrofoam blocks and award your child with hours of fun. Each light, white, rigid block the size of a breadbox has a trapezoid cross section, is numbered and assembles easily with others by interlocking tongues and grooves.

Kid friendly instructions aid construction of an igloo for compact playing inside or on top. The flexible polystyrene foam system can also be rebuilt as a crawl tunnel or even a sturdy arched bridge.

Many customers return to purchase the jumbo add-on bag to assemble a full size Inuit abode when camping.

Not quite big enough and any color as long as it isn't white [Klaatu, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       I like this. I can remember building an igloo out of snow, stomped into a bucket and then piled one on top of the other. Took the better part of an afternoon.   

       This would come in a very large box unless the pieces were inflatable and had strips of velcro on the connecting sides. You could have a clear igloo that could double as a sauna on sunny days. [+]

       I was thinking blocks with a rectangular surface shape popular in Greenland.

       dry ice? you mean that co2 in ice form that burns like frozen hell?

       No, no, the "dry ice" is deliberately misleading I think. Read the description!

       PHEW! I am so glad this isn't actually made of dry ice. I can just see the fire dept. being called to unstick the small frozen child from their igloo.

       The fog would look cool though.

       I used to work at a neurology research lab, and we'd get cell shipments in dry ice. With nothing better to do with the stuff, we'd fill a sink a quarter of the way full of water, add some alconox or other dish soap, and pour in the dry ice. Awesome soap fest, and the floors were the cleanest in the hospital.
