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:

    Was so excited about this family gift for the 'kids' and grandkids (teens). Total bummer. Sand stuck to hands, was messy, not cohesive enough to form any shapes. No fun, just frustration. And I carried the 11 freaking pounds in hand luggage overseas!

        My nieces and nephew loved it! The one con was that it came in plastic wrapping but didn't have a reusable container for storage. I had to buy that separately.

              I bought this for my son, who just turned 2. He has Sensory Processing Disorder, and this was the perfect thing to get him involved in his OT, and also great to use as a method of calming. Whenever he gets worked up, we have quiet time with this sand, and some soft music and he calms down almost immediately. It's very fun to play with and manipulate, and easy to shape into many different things, but even more fu. To watch it almost melt back down.

                I bought this for my kids for a Christmas present, so I can't comment on what they think yet, but of course I had to test it out first :). This sand is soo addicting. The way it molds, falls thru your fingers, etc. you swear there's going to be sand all over you, but nope. It sticks to itself. I usually brush my hands together out of habit to shake any loose sand off, but there's really no need. Highly recommend.

                  There were no instructions or pictures showing use. The recipient will get this bag of sand and wonder what in the world it is for. I'm hesitant to give it as a gift.
