Inside the box you will find:
- 1 play tray
- 1 bag of sand
- 3 molds
- 1 spade / rake tool
Kinetic Sand is made up of 98% sand and 2% polymers. This is what gives it it's unique texture. It doesn’t stick to your hands like normal sand does and should any escape from the tray, it’s easy picked up either by hand or by using a bit of the sand rolled into a ball. The ingredients used in the sand means that it won’t solidify and it actually feels quite nice when it's slipping through your fingers.
The set is recommended for children aged three and over but I think it would also be ok for younger children to play with so longs as they are supervised by an adult whilst playing with the product.
Despite my reservations ( I wish I had let James have other sets before now) we had lots of fun making castles and sea creatures in the sand. It is a lot easier to clean up than I had realised and the sand really didn't leave the tray that much. James played with it for ages and he has asked for other molds so that he can make other things in the sand.
It’s available to buy on Amazon and Argos for £19.99. I think that’s a great price for a product that will have your child wanting to play with it over and over again. I also think it would make a lovely Christmas gift for younger children.
