Kinetic Sand

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.

I'm a school therapist and have been using this in my practice all year. The kids ALWAYS request to play with it during their free time and their play with it gives me more insight into them as little people. It does crumble easily if picked up, so I find little pieces of it scattered around my room, but it certainly is much easier and less messy than a traditional sand tray. I bought this last order to divide among them as an end of the year gift.

I hope my recipients like this gift. However, I was disappointed in the packaging.. it's not in a box like you see on all websites, just in a plastic wrapper with a label slapped on. Not even sure how I go about wrapping this to make it look presentable. You can't go by the box-like dimensions shown of 7.5" L x 3.5" W x 2.5" D.... it's an 8" x 6" x 1/2" plastic wrapper. Looks really lame, frankly. I purposely didn't buy the larger quantity because I wanted to gift to several people but now I wonder if a larger package was just opened and the inner bags sent to me (along with the resulting higher cost). Humbug....

          Comments about UncommonGoods Kinetic Sand:

          Mom was a little worried about using this indoors - but no problem - we got a large plastic serving tray, big enough to contain all the kinetic sand and molds at the same time. Also got small food containers to store it neatly. I'm glad I bought it. More important - so is my lovely 6 year old Grand Daughter.

                          I use this in my play therapy practice, mostly with children 3-12 yrs. old. They love molding, shaping, stacking and squishing the shapes. I have also purchased it for gifts for young family members who love it.
