B-LABO: Hello Kitty Shaved Ice

– What’s B-LABO? Who’s Bungu-o? –


Mini Hello Kitty shaved ice maker from a capsule-toy vending machine.


This machine may be very tiny, but you can actually use it to make shaved ice. Maybe, you can picture clearly how small it is when I mention that the blade part is just like a pencil sharpener. So tiny, isn’t it? The instruction manual says, “Do not eat ice shaved with this machine”. I’m not sure why that is, but you can’t make enough shaved ice to eat anyway… And it’s quite difficult to put syrup on the tiny mound of shaved ice.

If you really want to eat shaved ice with syrup, you’d better mix syrup with water, freeze it and then shave it. This machine comes with a special ice making plate. The B-LABO website doesn’t have any images of the plate, but it must be very small too.



It seems difficult to find a right place for cups because these cups are also tiny (^^;)
