Hours of fun

My son absolutely loves this sand and it’s mess free. Will be buying more!

Love this stuff!

Super easy to clean up, far easier than kinetic sand. Paired it with some mini animals and kept my busy boy entertained for such a long time. Feels almost like spider webs which he thought was cool! Would buy again in another colour.

My 2.5 year old son hates the texture of playdoh but this sand with the texture of cotton candy fascinates him. It is very versatile and excellent for sensory games.

Good sensory activity

Great sensory activity. Recommend for play outside. Just throw into a pan or container, add some scoops and your good to go. Little one really enjoyed it. Easy to clean as sand sticks together. Highly recommend.

Really good and enjoyable.

It's super fun for kids of all ages and adults. I love the way it feels! It does leave a little residue on hands but easy to wash off. Worth it for the fun

Great toy to open play

Very good alternative to sand, especially when play at home. A little more humid and solid than sand, easy to shape with the mould. Great!

It’s so FLUFFY

This has to be one of the best sensory products I’ve ever bought. So much better then ordinary kinetic sand. We purchased the blue to create water in small world play. Will definitely be coming back to buy other colours

It's hard to describe the feeling of this but it is amazing. I love it just as much as my kids. Its kind of like a kinetic x slime x playdoh mix. Pleasing to touch, fun to play with, works great with collecta animals / stampers as it imprints so well. I find it easier to clean up than kinetic sand as well. Definitely one to add for sensory play.

Our boys imagination runs wild!!

My 3 year old loves this sand!! We have it in two different colours and he loves that it’s “sticky and slimy” but can be firm enough for our dinosaurs to leave footprints! It’s easy to tidy up as well which is always a bonus!

Every one loved it. The baby asks for it frequently. Parents love how easy it is to contain. The storage tub is great. Every one, big and small, finds it mesmerising. Thanks.
