Bring sand pit fun indoors with Kinetic Sand


One of the many joys of parenthood is being able to vicariously relive your own childhood – particularly when it comes to playing with cool stuff, like this incredible sand.


It’s called Kinetic Sand, and I suppose you could say it’s the sand kids can play with when it’s raining – because it’s intended for indoor play. But unlike sand from the sandpit, it can be used to build and form things. It can be sliced, stretched and moulded, but retains this rather incredible, almost liquid-like property.


The best way to see what it does is to watch this video.

Kinetic Sand is intended for children aged three and over, is non-toxic, and never dries out. It costs $24.95 for a one kilogram bag from Big Dreams.
