Price: $9.99 CDN and up

Kinetic Sand from Spin Master gives a funky new twist to playing in the sand. Designed for kids ages 3 and up, the product’s recipe includes 98% natural sand and 2% polydimethylsiloxane – a type of silicone polymer. The polymer gives Kinetic Sand the look and feel of wet sand without the potential messy side effects. It’s also wheat, gluten, and casein free.

Kinetic Sand sticks to itself – and only to itself! It can be molded much like Play-Doh, doesn’t dry out, and comes in over 15 colours. Spin Master also offers a variety of themed play sets that include various plastic molds that can be used to shape the coloured sand into various objects, like castles and animals.

Kinetic Sand is available from online and brick-and-mortar retailers. Prices start at $9.99 CDN for an 8oz container.
