WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD-Small Parts. Not for children under 3 years. Not intended to be eaten.

Introducing SAND, the packable, stretchable—and just incredible—stuff you’ll simply never put down.
Unlike beach or play sand, SAND has special properties that make it soft and stretchy. Build something big, something small, let it flow through your fingers. You’ll be fascinated as it oozes, moves, and melts right before your eyes—just like a slow-moving liquid. Great for children and adults, at home or in the office.

You’ll never put it down. (Trust us—we can’t either!)
Aside from playing with it every chance we get, we found that SAND is also great for:

  • Goofing off in the office
  • Distracting co-workers
  • Building castles
  • Making shapes and faces
  • Writing messages
  • Reducing stress

It won’t make a mess and never dries out.
SAND is kinetic—that means it's designed to stick to itself but not to you. It flows through your fingers just like wet sand, but leaves them completely dry and mess-free. And no matter how you pull, stretch and separate SAND (even if some gets on the floor), it always recombines easily. No vacuum cleaners or mops needed. But here’s the best part: when you’re ready to break out the SAND again, it’s just the same as it was when it came out of the jar. It never dries out and needs no liquid additives. If it does get wet, just let it dry out before playing with it again. It’s that easy.

You’ve seen it before, but you’ve never felt anything like it. Order your jar of SAND from Brookstone today.

* 2 for $25 promo only applies to the 12 oz size.

Note: Sand Box and Sand Molds sold separately.

Bought this after we received it at work as a vendor gift. We couldn't keep our hands off of it at work. I decided to make it a family gift for Christmas. Since purchasing we have all been fighting over it. My granddaughter loves it and so does my 17 year old daughter. This stuff is just crazy fun to sculp, build and be creative. I have seen villages, snakes, turtles and castles for squinkies so far. My guess is the possibilities are endless. The sand really does not stick to anything, is easy to clean up if it spills (it rarely does)it sticks to it's self to be put back in the box! You won't be dissapointed and your young at heart kids and your actual kids will have hours of fun using their imagination.

It is fascinating to play with this. I have some in a box at my desk and people used to love to come by to play while they talked. I've had it about 6 months. After about 2 months I noticed it was starting to get a little stiff and not as "fluid". After 6 months, it is not much different than regular sand . It just feels dried out to the touch. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

Comments about Sand by Brookstone:

This stuff is definitely awesome. My friend bought it for her husband for V-Day and we thought it was super cool. Therefore, I bought a container for my job and decided to hand out some to everyone. Well...everyone loved it until it exploded. I handed a piece to everyone and suddenly a few people started screaming because by the third time of them squeezing it, it literally exploded everywhere. I was so humiliated because I bragged how awesome it is, easy, and stressed that it was not messy. It really is super cool but I will never buy it again because of the embarrassment I went through with it exploding on my coworkers, VP's and my own boss.

      Comments about Sand by Brookstone:

      I ordered this as a small gift for my sister who enjoys small puzzles, games and trinkets. I thought the sandbox and tools pictured came with my order. I was disappointed when an ugly plastic container or sand arrived. The sand was fine, but would not have paid that much if I had realized that was all I was purchasing.

      Comments about Sand by Brookstone:

      This is NOT a useful product unless you are looking for and addictive and relaxing way to busy your hands. Sand is just plain fun. Once picked up, it is impossible to put down. Once you "flow" it in front of a spectator, they will grab it from you.

      Good for kids, especially if you buy the sandbox, which I highly recommend. Keeps Sand contained and is a perfect platform for artistic creations of all sorts. It does flake off bits that can easily be picked up, but will mash into fabric or bottoms of shoes. Altogether a fab, innovative and different "toy" for ALL ages. It does have an odd smell which seems to diminish after leaving it in the sandbox for a few days.

          We gave it as gifts to an 8 year old boy and an 11 year old girl. They and their siblings did play with it all weekend.

          It was messier than I hoped and my husband was a bit disappointed that it did not hold a shape as well as he hoped.

              My granddaughter loved playing with the sand so I gave it to most of the children on my list... Kids love this and play with it for a long time... It's pretty amazing. I also figured kids would mix the colors and pretty much destroy it, they didn't! My nephew has every toy under the sun, and the sand was the one gift he picked up and played with in Christmas. My 22 year old daughter even thought the desk set was great and is looking forward to picking it up for her sand. It's pretty amazing.
