Kinetic Sand – One of the years hottest toys!- #chosenbykids

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf Sverve for Wal-Mart. I received a sample to facilitate my review and I am being compensated for participating.

This past weekend we went to the Walmart Toyland event to check out this years hottest holiday toys. It was quite interesting to see all the new products that will be available for Christmas and the kids had a blast. They ran us from toy to toy to show us their Christmas list in live action. We even checked out the Layaway department. They have opened up the layaway department for holiday shopping. We will make use of it to help hide the presents till wrapping time.

While there we were able to pick up this Kinetic Sand play set.

The kids couldn’t wait to test it out. I will admit I was a little curious myself. I also had a sinking feeling that there was about to be a mess all over my house…. Actually I was quite surprised on how easily it cleaned up. That was my first thought. It doesn’t stick to anything but itself so even though some of it did find it’s way out of the blue plastic container, it was easy to clean up and didn’t stick to the floor.

There were 4 molds in the box, a sand castle, a sea horse, and a fish. My only issue was that the front of the box shows 2 lbs of sand in the blue container but only 1 lb came inside the box. Atleast they are honest and in small print it does say this and it’s in English.

There was so much they could do with this Kinetic Sand. CB liked to bury her hands or let it fall through her fingers. She also made pretend cupcakes and ice cream cones.

When pressed hard it will stay molded into shape but when moved it will crumble and turn almost liquid like falling into a loose pile of sand.

For ages 3 and up as it is not edible but if accidentally swallowed is not poisonous and is gluten free.

CB made a review video. This is her first review video and she had a lot of fun with it.

And yes I realize she is being a tad overly dramatic, it’s not an act she is always my overly dramatic drama queen.

  1. So jealous. This was the toy that we were originally suppose to get and then it magically got switched. The toy we ended up with was to age appropriate for us.

    Glad you are enjoying it.

  2. My daughter is looking at the pictures with me asking if she can have this toy. 🙂

  3. Is it bad I want this stuff for myself? LOL My oldest, Lydia wants this for Christmas. I may play with it more than her!

  4. That looks really cool. They had that at our walmart event but didn’t have it open to play with. I’m really curious to know what it feels like!

  5. Your daughter is the perfect age for this!! Bought my 4 year old some and it was all over the house!!!. That sand feels so so good. I like the pink color! I can see many 6+ kids getting this for a holiday gift.

  6. My girls brought some of this home from their dad’s house and I must have played with it for an hour! I don’t watch TV, so I never saw what this stuff was all about until I got my hands on it. It was so fun! lol

  7. That is so cool! I think I would end up playing with the kids!
