This Sculpting Sand Changes the Way People See the Substance

The expression, "Like sand slipping through your fingers" may soon become null if WABA Fun's Kinetic Sand grasps people's imaginations like Play-Doh once did.

Made of 98 percent sand and two percent non-toxic polymer, Kinetic Sand looks and feels like a slightly damp clump of sand, but has the more useful function of not sticking to the surface or leaving any noticeable residue. The sand sticks to itself, so the chance of it getting stuck in between your nails is close to none.

One blogger claimed that the sand felt like "cotton candy," or "what I would imagine holding a cloud would feel like." Kinetic Sand is also designed to disintegrate quickly, so part of the fun, according to one site, is watching "large structures quickly melt before your eyes." At $15 for 2.2 pounds, the pricing is slightly sleep, but bringing the beach home without spreading over or getting it stuck in your hair is fully worth avoiding the UV rays.
