Kinetic Sand by WabaFun is a tactile compound composed of 98% real sand and 2% non-toxic polymer. Even adults will find themselves mesmerized by both the appearance of the sand and the feel of it as it runs through their fingers. Once placed on a surface, it moves independently almost as if alive. Children can mold smaller creations, which tend to hold their shape, or larger structures, which will appear to melt before their very eyes. Kinetic Sand offers a neat, easy-to-clean way to play in the sand long after the summer sun has faded.

Working with the Kinetic Sand can encourage imaginative and creative play while honing important fine motor skills and sensory awareness. And, because it contains no fluid, there is nowhere for bacteria to grow; it is antimicrobial, non-toxic, and gluten-free.
