NO-Mess Sand! Yes It Really Does Exist!
Yesterday my family and I decided to venture down to the Santa Monica Promenade since it was a nice (but windy) day in So Cal. One that wasn't too hot or crowded since it's not yet the summer months. Anyway, we went into the Brookstone store and saw this incredible "Sand" that all of us fell in love with! It's a 98% sand with 2% polymer blend that makes that sand sort of stick together. It never dries out (as long as it is used then put back in the jar), dust free, gluten free, easy to clean and the options for pretend play are endless!
It feels like moist stand and does not separate much or stick to your hands. It's sort of like a granular play dough and my daughter wouldn't put it down. She played with it for at least 30 minutes and it never got on her clothes, the counter or her hands. Brookstone kept it in a small wooden sand box that they also sell. The sand itself is $20 for the 2.2lb jar or $14.99 for the 1lb jar. The 1lb jar is also on sale for 2 for $25 but the large 2.2 lb jar is still a better deal.
