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.

    The sand was supposed to be a gift for our grandchildren, and they do love it. However, we love it too, so we're planning an indoor beach party (we live in Colorado)for our friends, so they can play with it, too.

                I thought htis would be really fun, but in truth it was just messy. The bag does not reseal, so there is no good way to keep the sand together. not nearly as fun as it looked on You Tube!A big flop gift.

                      This was a gimmick of sorts gift for my 16 year old son. It is fun for all ages. The younger kids used the sand to build things, the older kids just enjoyed balling it, and manipulating it in a container or in their hands. The adults also could not put it down...Everyone who played with asked where I purchased it...

                          Both the children I gave this to (boys, age 13 and 14) are people difficult to please with inexpensive gifts. They both loved it and had a lot of fun with it right away.
