I bought an 11 lbs. box from Amazon. The look and texture reminds me of light brown sugar. It packs and molds very well just like beach sand. I do recommend using a sand table because it does get messy and falls on the floor when my kids play with it on the kitchen table. Just like regular sand it gets everywhere except this stuff clumps together like play-doh which to me makes it not as hard to clean up as regular sand although there will still be grains of sand left behind here and there. It does not stick to your hands unless they are dirty so I make sure my kids wash and dry their hands very well before they play with it. One thing for sure...the sand will get in your fingernails. My husband and I enjoy playing with it too! If you want to buy Waba Fun kinetic sand I suggest you do your research because sometimes these sellers on Amazon can be a bit over priced. Sometimes you can catch it cheaper on ebay as well. I also bought two 2.2 lbs. cannisters of Brookstone sand from the Brookstone store and I believe I can say with certainty that Brookstone Sand and Waba Fun kinetic sand are the exact same product. Everything about the two are identical...they are both made in Halmstad, Sweden and both have the same patent number. Both products look, feel and behave identically. Brookstone Sand does cost more but I suppose it is because the sand comes in a storage container, where as the Waba Fun kinetic sand comes in a box with non reusable packaging. If you wanna buy it in larger quantities I'd go with the Waba Fun because it is cheaper. I bought an 11 lbs. box for $54. The largest quantity of Brookstone Sand I've seen is 2.2. lbs. @ $20. You'd have to pay $100 to get 11 lbs. Although Waba Fun 2.2 lbs. box of kinetic sand is cheaper...I've seen it as low as $16...if you're only buying small quantities I'd go with Brookstone Sand only because it includes the storage container.

Bought this for my toddler, who really enjoyed playing with a similar (and much more expensive) product at a toy store. I put the sand into a low, wide Sterilite bin and bought a bunch of things from the dollar store so we can switch up the items in the "sand box" every so often. Some of the items we are using with the sand include: measuring cups, measuring spoons, ice cream scoop, sieve, ramekins, cookie cutters, construction vehicles, plastic bugs/snakes/animals, large buttons, plastic 'gems,' colourful wooden cubes, shovels, sand moulds.

I know what you're thinking. That this is some expensive sand, right? Well, it is, but I think it's worth it. I bought it for my 3 year old last year for Christmas, and out if all her presents, it was played with the most. Now, a year later, she still plays with it, but it has gone down in volume - from being spilled, thrown, eaten by the dog - and yes, if you are a pet owner, note that dogs love this stuff. - etc. It has also picked up quite a bit of dog hair, but an entire year of enjoyment for under $50 isn't bad.

Pros:

- It's like wet, moldable sand, which means you won't have to make endless trips to the sink, filling up cup after cup of water.

- Great for kids with Sensory issues, as it won't stick to hands like wet sand, but still feels pretty awesome.

- It doesn't stick in Barbie's hair. Or your own.

- It's very therapeutic. I still find myself after a hard day, playing in the sand.

- It's a great alternative to Play-Do for kids with Wheat allergies.

- No batteries to replace. No In-App purchases.

- For the love of all things good, it isn't some lady opening Kinder Eggs on Youtube. This alone makes it well worth the price IMHO.

- It's versatile. I hide things for my daughter to dig up and find, we write letters in it, and make pretend cookies.

Cons:

- It is a bit pricy, so you will find yourself picking out every precious bit of it from the carpet, when your kid dumps it out.

- I know I said this earlier, but dogs really do love it. It does have a bit of a bacony smell to it, but I still don't see the attraction.

This stuff is fun. I played with it longer than my kids the first time I was introduced. If you're unsure what "magic sand" or "kinetic sand" is, imagine something roughly the consistency and moisture of light brown sugar. You can pack it and it'll clump together in a very similar way. But unlike brown sugar, this sand will slowly melt like a liquid, and feels fluffy as it breaks apart if you rub your fingers through it. If you get it wet, it'l return to the original consistency after being dried. It will mold into whatever shaped container you shove it, holding up temporarily before slowly melting back into a glob. I have no idea what's in the stuff to make it work, but whatever it is I applaud. It's way better than that ordinary, boring, scratchy coral dust at the beach that always manages to get everywhere you don't want it.

I opted for this 11 lb box (which comes in 5 individually sealed kilo-sized packs). The reason being that, though easier to clean up compared to normal sand, it's significantly pricier, and I have toddlers. No matter how hard I might try, some volume is lost every time the kids play. Without reserves, the enjoyment factor is eclipsed by the anxiety of trying to reclaim every clump that hits the floor.
