HAVING BEEN NAGGED BY MY KIDS TO BUY 'MAGIC SAND' - AFTER THEY HAD SEEN IT ADVERTISED ON TV I DECIDED TO BUY SOME FOR THEM AND A FRIEND.

NOW THE IDEA APPEARS TO BE A GREAT ONE - BRIGHTLY COLOURED SAND THAT YOU PUT IN A BOWL , PLAY AND MOULD WITH UNDER WATER AND WHEN YOU TAKE IT OUT OF THE WATER IT IS MAGICALLY DRY!

WELL THE REALITY IS QUITE DIFFERENT - TRUE UNDER WATER IT IS LIKE GUNGY CLAY AND ABOVE DRY SAND BUT WHAT THEY DONT TELL YOU IS THAT THERE IS VERY LITTLE YOU CAN DO WITH IT ONCE IN OR OUT OF THE WATER.

MY KIDS COULDNT MAKE ANYTHING WITH IT APART FROM A BIG PILE AND WHEN YOU REMOVE IT FROM THE WATER LITTLE BITS OF SAND FLOAT ON THE SURFACE. BASICALLY THEY WERE BORED WITH IT IN ABOUT 10 MINUTES

YOU ARE SUPPLIED WITH A 'SCULPTING' TOOL BUT IT IS PRETTY USELESS APART FROM DIGGING HOLES. ALSO THE JOYS OF TRYING TO GET THE SAND BACK IN THE BOTTLE WITH OUT LOSING HALF OF IT IS A MOTHERS NIGHTMARE.

YES ITS NOT EXPENSIVE, UNDER £5.00 FROM WOOLWORTHS ETC BUT I HAVENT FOUND ANYONE THAT THINKS IT VERY GOOD. ALSO WHEN YOU MIX THE SAND COLOURS TO MAKE CASTLES AND SCENES AS SUGGESTED BY THE MANUFACTURER YOU END UP WITH A BIG MESS.

ALL I CAN SAY IS STICK WITH THE NORMAL SAND AND HELP THEM MAKE SAND CASTLES - ITS MUCH MORE FUN!

Don't want to rub it in, but I expect you've got the message about turning off the caps lock! Good luck for next time.

Please no caps! Its sounds fun but I wouldn't want to try and get it back in the tub either. :-)
