The smell is disgusting. Very chemically

The smell is disgusting. Very chemically. The sand itself does not stick like in the picture. It's crumbly and does get messy.

I gave this one as a gift because I had the same brand for my son years ago. This one got a bad smell and they are no longer using it. It's not cheap so I'm disappointed.

So much fun
by Lincey (5 out of 5 stars)

This sand is great for a small indoor sand box - perfect for rainy days and also a wonderful sensory activity that kids will enjoy daily. This sand is special, like a mix between play dough, sand and magic. Not gonna lie, I enjoy playing with it too! It's very easy to make shapes with it using molds. My 3 year old can make perfect little castles.

We got 4 pounds of sand and bought a Sterilite container for it at a local chain store ($3.99). It's comparable to the little indoor sand containers they sell for over $20. We also purchased a fun molds kit on Amazon. For under $35 total, this makes a fantastic activity.

I will probably need to get more sand in the future as a little get out of the box every time. Because it kind of sticks together, I'm able to put most of it back in our box.

Lots of fun for a 3yr old...and his parents!
by Mimir (5 out of 5 stars)

This kinetic sand brand is the best I have found. I looked up a comparison video on Youtube and viewed about 6 different brands compared in different "tests" side by side and of them all, I preferred the properties of this brand. It packs down firmly into molds, holds it's shape well but also breaks down and flows as beautifully as any kinetic sand. It will cut with a knife or cookie cutter with a satisfying crunch, is super easy to clean up by using a larger glob of the sand to attract the bits.

It leaves no residue on your hands, you don't have to worry to much about your child having residual sand on their hands and wiping their eyes.

Easily vacuumed out of carpet (though honestly you can just pat it with a larger glob of sand as well if the carpets cleaned).

It never dries out! We have kept ours in non-air tight tight plastic containers and played with it daily for a month without any signs of drying.

When the 2lb box first arrived I was worried it wouldn't be enough sand to actually do anything with....but with the smaller sized molds I bought for my son, 2lbs is plenty for just him. We bought an extra 2lb box to have to play with him or when friends are over. You can see in my pictures, the 2lbs of sand packed tight in my hand, and then "fluffed" out in the container.

My only complaint, and you can see it in my pictures...the "brown" sand can come in different shades of brown. One of the "brown" shades is actually brown...the other is almost a greyish white.

Sticks to hands
by melissa (1 out of 5 stars)

I give one star because it sticks to my toddlers and my hands. The reason I bought this was for indoor sensory exploration. But it gets stuck on his hands and mine and anywhere else. I've felt other products in the past that didn't stick at all so I bought this hoping the same but that's not the case. So we just don't use it because too much clean up. I could just get some real sand I wanted to deal with that. Bummer

Not very kenetic
by Lukemakes7 (1 out of 5 stars)
December 28, 2017

This batch of kenetic sand is disappointing. It does not mold and form like the previous batch we bought. It sticks to us instead of itself. We can't even make a ball with it. And it's a huge mess! Our last batch was clean, stuck together, and molded very nicely. I'm going to return this!

UPDATE: received a replacement for the first one...and it's exactly the same as the first disappointing batch :( I hope they make it the way they used to (super clean and kinetic and fun!).

COMPARISON Kinetic Sand v. CoolSand brand: KS is SMELLIER, GREASIER, and MESSIER, but CHEAPER
by potatomonster (2 out of 5 stars)
December 29, 2018

SUMMARY: I don't like it, THREW IT AWAY after playing for about fifteen minutes. I purchased both CoolSand and this Kinetic Sand. Kinetic Sand is CHEAPER, but is an INFERIOR product.

I think Brookstone's Sand (with two dots over the "a," too bad Brookstone went out of business) was a faaaar superior product, albeit at a MUCH higher price point. Frankly, CoolSand and especially Kinetic Sand feel like cheap KNOCKOFFs.

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES Kinetic Sand v. CoolSand:
Kinetic Sand aggregate seems much FINER (sand grains seem smaller)
KS "glue" leaves a GREASIER RESIDUE on my hands after i handle it
KS leaves my HANDS FEELING GRITTY, CoolSand comes off cleaner and doesn't leave my entire hands coated with sandy difficult to clean grit...
KS has a CHEMICAL SMELL (not harsh, rather, more like elmers glue-ish)

Kinetic Sand is moldable, but does NOT hold shapes as well as CoolSand. (e.g. a "ball" of CoolSand will sit on my counter, but Kinetic Sand will probably crumble and melt just from the pressure of putting it down)
Both KS and CS "flow" about the same when in their soft state

but it's not like the kinetic sand I've played with before
by Kurumi Shinoda (5 out of 5 stars)

Wow! This stuff is just amazing. If you pull it, it feels, like, fluffy, but you can mold it really tightly, and it becomes smooth as rock. It's very soothing. I looked at the critical reviews and it seems like everyone doesn't like how sticky it is. The thing is, it's your palms that does it. If your palms are sweaty, it sticks to you. If it's not, you're completely fine. Of course, you can't control sweaty palms, so I recommend washing your hands with cold water, drying them, and then use a blow-dryer if that didn't work. For the price, it's amazing. It's exactly like the one sold for $20. But if you really compare them, I think the only flaw is that it doesn't hold its shape as easily. It was a very minor problem and I didn't find it that big of a deal. I definitely recommend, and if it's sticky, just make sure your palms aren't sweaty and you should be fine.

Really cool (GOOD QUALITY) but wouldnt pay more than $18 (tops) for 2lbs (any brand)
by DBA (4 out of 5 stars)

Its like sand/dough! Was worried about its consistency compared to other brands (not that I know what any of them feel like) but I have to say I am pleased with this product.

Love the way it looks as you hold it in your hand as gravity takes course and it falls out of your hand back down (again its like sand dough)

From looking at videos on youtube I would say its comparable to Brookstone sand thats $30+ and so because it has a clear container/bottle that says "sand" youre gonna pay $15+ more (might as well buy 2 of these)

Clean UP IS A BREEZE youll have MINIMAL loss (if any at all) just be smart about where youre going to use this or let your children use this.

Its NOT WET it leaves NO FILM ON YOUR HAND (though it initially smells "weird" when first opening it)

Almost impossible to sculpt with your fingers (its not regular wet sand) you need a sculpting utensil (what ever that may be) though it is sand it has a more comparable consistency to a "flaky dough" ( i cant explain it really) but it feels cool in your hands and looks cool as well!

NOTE: Item comes in a clear bag within the sealed box ( I went and bought a blue clear "thermos" bottle/container from the dollar store which contained the whole 2lbs and will be printing the box's "Kinetic Sand" logo on a sticker paper and putting that on the container that now houses the sand (youre going to need something to keep this in after you open it if even a zip lock bag)

Awesome stuff, messy but worth it.
by Christina (5 out of 5 stars)

I've wanted to buy this stuff for awhile. My almost 4 year old saw a commercial on tv and loved it. I ordered this and a tool set that included a small amount of the beach sand. The beach sand blended perfectly. I'm using a full size sheet cake pan as a tray and it works perfectly for play. It sticks to my sons hands much more than mine. We have moist air due to our evaporative cooler so after a day it's sticking much more. I'll need to get a sealed tub for it. It's worth any hassle we've experienced. My son wanted to take it to bed last night! It's the first thing he wanted to play with this morning. Yes crumbs fall on to the floor and stick to him but his enjoyment is worth it. I plan to get more. I've never bought another brand so can't speak about comparisons but I think you get a good amount of sand for the price. If you want mess free sensory play it's probably not for you but if your child's enjoyment is what you're going for it's a must!
