Lines In The Sand

You won't be able to take your eyes off this teeny screenie. These fun and mesmerizing sand art screens created by Klaus Boesch will capture everyone's attention at home or at the office with their originality and natural presence. Simply rotate the screen and marvel as the delicate light and dark sands shift into deserts, mountains, clouds, rain, oceans and smoke, all ebbing and flowing into one another. Gently shake if needed. Handmade in Austria. Available in blue, green, pink and black. Click here to see more of Klaus Boesch's work.

Includes a small syringe with needle for adding and removing water and air, which helps regulate and maintain the Screenie and makes sand flow more slowly or more quickly. Regulation, which is rarely required, should be done by adults only. Instructions included.

I received an [...]catalog in the mail, and disparagingly tossed it aside, as I get so many catalogs. Eventually, I picked it up and was instantly sucked in by the beauty and quality of the eco friendly products being offered. With my entire family out of town for the holidays, I needed a quick fix, and with little time to spare before the Christmas Day deadline, I knew I had to decide quickly. That was the hard part. Not only did I find things for every person on my list (including myself!), I had a terrible time narrowing down the items to one gift each. I finally decided to be extra generous this year, and ordered two things each! This was a gift for my 13 year old son. He had watched my 16 year old open the larger version of sand dune art, by same manufacturer, and seemed mildly disappointed that no sand art was in his future. I kept my lips sealed and watched with mirth as he finally opened his own sand art. His whole face lit up, and he was not disappointed that it was smaller than his brothers. He has already spent hours messing with it, mesmerized by the falling sands. A unique gift, and something to keep for years and years to come. Great for anyone on your list, and a less expensive alternative to the larger version. [...]

Gave 3 to kids ages 9-13. All 3 thought it was really cool (at first glance).
Unfortunately,one was stepped on by a 6 lb. puppy & completeley shattered.
The poor design not only comes from the shoddy materials used but, more importantly, from the VERY sharp, hypodermic needle and syringe that's included which is required to inject or remove air from the sand/water filled chamber. More air decreases the speed the sand flows; withdrawing air supposedly increases it when turned upside down. Injecting more air only added bubbles which really distracted from the "scene" we were trying to create.
They need a more appropriate and safer way to do this without the use of a needle.
In the artist's defense, a brochure is included which alerts parents to monitor children, but most kids/parents wouldn't expect to find a needle included, and therfore, won't anticipate having to read first. Needless to say, it didn't take long for the kids to tear open the box and discover the needle and syringe on their own.
Another disappointment was that it's pretty much impossible to create any kind of mountain peaks or waves as displayed in the picture on the box.
Although, few parents/adults have much down time, it is relaxing to watch the sand fall.
The kids lost interest in it quickly; you'd be better off finding something that's going to hold their attention longer. Hope this helped.

      I bought one of these for my son as a Christmas present and as soon as it came in the mail, it became a stocking stuffer. Very small, low quality - couldn't have been more corny. Seriously nothing cool about it.

        Bought this for a teen's stocking stuffer...
        Bright color and seems sturdy enough for an older child. I would be afraid of glass breakage with a younger child. I was aware of the small size from other reviews and general description, but seems even smaller when you see it in person. I think it has an effect on the definition of the sand formations compared to larger versions of this product.Still fun to play with and could be used as a stress buster!A little pricey for what you get!

          Wow! These sand pictures are very poor quality. Made in China for sure. Sands don't make unique scenes and the frames are made of cheap plastic. Maybe a good gift for small children but not adults. Very disapointed! Don't waist your money.

              This is great fun, especially for those of us who grew up with these in the 1970's. I wanted my kids to see what they are like, so this small one was the most affordable way to do that! One warning though, they are made of glass, so younger kids need to be instructed and supervised, and coached what to do if there is breakage. Also, they need to be shown that the stand is not attached, so if it is picked up by the stand, the screen will drop and break.
