The Magic of Kinetic Sand

The Magic of Kinetic Sand

Kinetic Sand is a three-dimensional building toy made of 98% sand and 2% polydimethylsiloxane that mimics the physical properties of wet sand. Think of it as a concoction of sand + Silly Putty. That’s actually what it is.

It has an addicting “feel” quality to it. It looks like brown sugar but you can use it for sculpting, indoor play sand for children. The weird-but-good thing is that sticks to itself but not to most other materials or surfaces, and it does not dry out.

What do my kids think? My 15-year-old, 13-year-old and 11-year-old can’t resist it. Here’s their unvarnished opinion:

Kinetic Sand is from another clever Scandinavian company. Denmark has LEGO but Sweden — Delta of Sweden — created Kinetic Sand.
