It may look like just a pile of common sand, but dig in and you?ll discover an addictive, 3D building toy!

$15.00 - 45.00

Catch My Drift?

Sure, it may look like just a pile of common beach sand, but dig in and you'll discover that in your hands is an addictive, three-dimensional building toy! Pile it, shape it, squeeze it, or just let it drift in slow motion through your fingers. This futuristic material possesses a delightfully mushy texture and just enough malleability so it can hold the shape of simple sculptures and sand structures. A secret binding agent keeps the granules together, so you won't find sand dunes or drifts settling around your home after playtime. Bring the fun of the beach inside, even when chilly weather strikes, or prop a dune on your desk to keep your hands entertained as you dream of your next vacation. Made in Sweden. Limit 5 per customer.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Kinetic Sand:

    I got a couple of boxes of kinetic sand for my 3 and 5 year olds for Christmas, and they play with it everyday! What I didn't expect was how addictive it is for adults, too! The texture is very soothing, and everyone who comes for a playdate can't keep their hands out of it. I keep several boxes on hand for birthday presents, it is perfect for any age or gender. No more last minute running around to buy a bunch of junk for birthday parties. It is a unique gift. I keep ours in a turkey roasting pan with a few beach toys, it cleans up very easily. It sticks to itself, so you don't even need a broom, just swipe up the pieces that fell out of the pan with your hand. My only advice, like a gremlin, you can't get it wet. It will eventually dry out, though. Also, it is a little pricey, but worth it!

          Fun but needs a container

          Comments about UncommonGoods Kinetic Sand:

          One kg is about 3 cups of sand. Good stress reliever for adults or plaything for children. Build with it or just let it run through your fingers. It comes in a plastic bag that cannot be re-used, so you need to find a container to store it in. It has an odor, but I'm hoping that will lessen over time. Best used in a container, such as a 9X12 baking pan, and not directly on a table.

            I purchased this sand for my grsnddaughter after reading others' reviews. I was not dissapointed. It is not messy, can be used over and over with no changes to properties, and is so unusual. I am a retired special needs teacher and wish I had this sand for students who needed a quiet, tactile relaxer. Much better than a stress ball! I will be buying more of this sand for birthday gifts and relatives.
