Do not be fooled. Do not be swayed by the kids on the commercial, or your own kids begging in the toy aisle at Target when you are strung out and tired and grandpa has sent them birthday money. Do not cave in! Moon Sand Sucks!!
- Moon Sand molds as easy as wet sand it is not “wet” at all, so it will not stick, or leave a residue behind while playing on any surface. Moon Sand is the cleanest “dough” product out there.
- “Moon Sand” is nothing more than damp sand. It doesn’t stick to your kids, or the table, or even to itself. It’s just sand. With food dye. Or somthing. And, it gets All. Over. Your. Kitchen. Even with a rimmed tray- per their advice. Everywhere.
- Children love playing with Moon Sand to realize their imagination, Adults can use Moon Sand as an advanced free form sculpting medium. The fun is endless
- Beanie lasted about 67 seconds before it stopped being fun. And Bean will play with a bucket of wheat or beans or dirt for, literally, hours. I tried my hand at it. My hands are generally pretty groovy for making things- I couldn’t get the blasted stuff to do anything besides make an imprint of the inside of my clenched fist. Yes, Endless fun, indeed.
Moon Sand? Skip it, mamas. Messy, not fun, and kinda expensive, especially when compared the stalwart and ever-popular (and CHEAP!) Play-Doh.
